308 red block/black block?

my ht has a 308 and i would like to know how i can tell which block i have be it red or black?

what are the differences and advantages to either?
also wot are the spec of L34 heads and how are they better than wots normally on the 308?

after having found water in the oil...im now on the rebuild path...heads are off and also valley found to be corroded inside water ways and on the face that meets the heads (i think this is where the water has mixed in with the oil) gaskets also not healthy....
so now i need to source a new valley and get the heads done.....also new water pump and timing chain cover

manifolds

I'm looking for opinions on Red V8 4 barrel manifolds.

How do the stock 4 barrel manifolds stack up against some of the performance manifolds that are around.... I've got a 2 barrel manifold at the moment and can have a stock 4 barrel manifold pretty cheap right now or i can look around for something else
and what do people recommend?

HQ wiring

HI all, Im doing the conversion from fuel gauge and warning lights to the 3in1 option. If you know the standard fuel gauge you will know that theres a unit that clips on that holds the bulbs and wiring for the warning lights. I need to get the conections out of this housing to be modified to go onto the gauge. How do you get the conections out cause I pulled and pulled on them the other day and they would budge. Is they a specail way they come out or something of what do you do?

Any ideas would be great

Thanks

Arc vs Oxy welding

So I'm doing some reading on welding. My old man never ever not once used the arc welder for welding on the car, instead he always uses the oxy. From what I've read so far, it seems that electric arc welding would be more than suitable welding in rust repair sections and the like. Can anyone tell me why an oxy would better ?

Steering Wheel Removal

Im having a bit of trouble removing the wheel on my WB Deville. I have made myself a puller out of a piece of aluminium angle with a couple of holes in it. The holes being for bolts being screwed into the empty holes beside the main shaft. This method has worked a treat for me in the past on my Corollas but has not been quite as successful on the Stato with the angle bending as I tighten the bolts and the wheel refusing to budge. Any pointers? I am trying to replace the top column bearing.

Injection on Old Block

Contemplating a rebuild on the old HZ 308 block with an injection setup up top.

Just wondering if anyone knows any pitfalls of this sort of setup? Also what is required as far as legalities go, do I require an engineers certificate or is it just a simple affair?

Cheers.
