Air vents not working

Well i got the auto electricians at work to pump some gas into my air-con and its working well. But it only blows onto windscreen and my feet not through the dash vents. All the pipe work is there but I don't know if there is supposed to be a switch or lever pulling something open for it to work or could it be blocked by something
thanks Ash

Cant get my 308 started, Help Me

Hey members,
liitle frustrated today, I bought my second car last week, a VL. This gave me the opportunity to get my 1 tonner started. As the battery is dead and the car hasn't been started in 6 months. So I took the battery from the VL (a 1 year old century battery). And hooked it up to the hq 308. As I went to start it nothing happens. I mean you turn the key and absolutely nothing happens. I'm pretty sure the battery is hooked up correctly as all lights are working. so I take it that enough zap is being received. Now I'mm thinking that it may be the starter motor. I took all the wires off cleaned them and the connecting point. (Also I noticed that the thread that you screw the wire onto is lose) could this be the problem). Please give your expertise fellow members, and get my 308 started. I want to hear the new twin system I just put on.

Out with the old... in with the bigger...

Dirty red 253 has been taken out and a black 308+cam installed in its place. New motor is a virgin bore VK 308 in good nic complete with edelbrock 'performer holden' dual plane manifold, new cam (crow 5666, 25/65... small cam desired for good bottom end performance in the ute, but delivers plenty for my needs!), lifters, timing chain and valve springs, valves reground but not done up for gas/unleaded... yet... Still a few bugs to iron out, running the 253 carby at the moment until I can sort out a 4brl for it, also still running points spark plugs on the HEI system, had a busted thermostat and temp sender so it got hot first day out without me noticing, but fixed now. Goes like the clappers as is so I'm looking forward to getting it in tune and seeing what happens when it gets some more fuel down its throat.

Getting the motor together and in the ute was a nightmare (3 afternoons after work I thought... ended up taking 6 nearly full days) but I had lots of help and everything turned out great in the end. Primed up the fuel system and it started first kick and the cam was run in beautifully - tip for those who are interested, unbolt your fuel pump while it is hooked up and pump it up manually to save copious amounts of cranking while you wait for fuel.

Currently the motor is running nice and silent except for the new improved bark, and delivering much more fun than the 253 was ever capable of. It still drives extremely easy (well... as easy as any muscle-steer, 4 on the floor tonner can be...) but now I can put my foot down and feel the G's. Apart from a very sore and tired body I'm one happy chap... :D

King Springs.

Got some new King Springs the other day for my HZ ute. and they dont have the flat top coil. is this going to be an issue??? im thinking it wont sit flat and contact all the way around......seems strange as all factory ones as far as i know have the flat top. also my last set of front springs i got for a place in adel called industrial spring suplies and they had the flat to also. seems strange that the king springs dont!

cheers

a option on gas mounting on utes

Image: 

thought someone might find this interesting on how my gas tank is mounted.
the spaire wheel winder is removed from the ute, and the cradle welded to the top of the towbar frame.
the timber tray was cut and some 10mm steel holds the spaire tyre, and a lock holds the door shut.
it is hard to explane, hope the pic helps
im always commented how good it looks
cheers

How do you connect a Heater??

g'day guys,

just a question about connecting heaters. ive recently bought a HR prem heater, and im really not sure how to connect the whole set-up. i understand that i need to drill a few holes in the fire wall to mount the heater etc. but as for the wiring im really not sure what is what....?

any help on how to wire a HR prem heater would be really awesome, or wiring diagrams would help bloody heaps!!

also im wanting to get the heater core pressure tested before i fit it in. does anybody have any idea about roughly how much this would cost? good idea i think?

Dash Vents

Hey all qucik question, the two air con vents closest to the doors are they just vents, or are they meant to blow air when the fan is turned on? Because mine do not blow any air but the two middle ones do.

Cheers,
Drew
