rear brake conversion wb

G'day all, my rear drums are very worn...has anyone had a rear disc conversion done, what was involved, and how much did it cost? Just weighing up whether it's worth it, or if I should just go the wreckers to get replacement old drums.

WHAT SHOULD a 308 REV To.

What should a 308 be able to rev to without probelms. Have a 308 in my ute which has been worked over a bit. Not sure whats been done to it. It has a fair bit of power. It has 600 holley and extractors and I would say the cam is not stock. When I hit just over 4000 revs it rattles and blows black smoke out the back. The motor runs perfectly up till this point. It could be pinging but not sure as I always back off as soon as I here the sound. The black smoke would mean its running rich. Any one got any ideas. Could it be the timing is not advancing enough. Another though was maybe it is when the secondaries open on the holley and is pumping to much fuel in. Any ideas aprreciated.

Vk EFI problems

My son has a VK Commodore. The VK has been sitting for some time. Of late when I went to start it, it ran as though it was flooding but as it warmed up it came good. Last week it refused to start and sounded as though it was trying to fire but just wouldn't.
I have been told that it may be the EFI computer that has died or as I have read elsewhere The air flow meter may be jammed open.
Has anyone encountered similar problems and know where I should start first.

Thanks

One father trying
