Does anybody know, or know where I could find out the exact size, type of timber and thread etc to make one of these gear balls?

Thanks in advance.

Single plane Vs dual plane.

G'Day all. Don't know if this has been brought up anywhere else as I can't work out how to search. I am putting a set of VR V8 heads on the 308 in my HX ute that will be running the twin throttle body Gas Research system. I'm aware of the fact that DUAL PLANE gives better throttle response and low down torque and the SINGLE PLANE is for mid to high RPM, sacrificing bottom end. I have been told, however, that single plane is better for the straight gas system. Can anyone tell me if the RPM numbers (ie. 1500-6000 for Dual plane and 3000-8000 for single plane)are the same on straight gas? also can anybody tell me of any bonnet clearance issues I should be aware of. I'm not cutting a hole.It's a daily driver and I don't want to be revving the tits off it to drive to the supermarket. If anybody has a manifold for sale I'm in Melbourne and may be interested. Cheers Mick.

What is this Mess?

Image: 

Ok, Last one I promise, for today anyhow.

This is my Red 202 motor, well, part of it. When I bought it, I sprayed degreaser all over, and this is the only part to get dirty again. I spray it maybe once a month (read when bothered), and today is about a month and a half from the last clean. This is how much build up has been from the last spray. It's not runny and it's slightly sticky, but it concerns me that my carb is leaking stuff because you put petrol in carbs. I have the under bonnet kit of lube so maybe it's leaking out somehow, but I do know the kit is working because the mechanic I took it to was very intregued and took a look around to see if he trusted it for his car. However, he didn't see this mess and I didn't know it was a problem back then.

Thanks again,
-Bryan.

What kind of Ignition System is this Please.

Image: 

I have been told about HEI systems, but have no idea if I already have one or what I have. I've done alot of KM's and am wondering if I need points done or if I haven't a worry, and I am told I'd be better off with a HEI system but dunno if I have one.

Thankyou.

cheap 308- 327 stroke "hint"

bloody scanner died last week, so i shortned this down a bit any typed it out
its from proformance street car jun/jul 92

the stock holden 3.062 crank with 2.124 rod journals is ofset ground to the
chev 283 ci 2.00, allowing for a stroke increase to just over 3.200
this also requires the narrowing of a set of 283 or 327 small journal chev conrods to fit
the narrower holden journal dimension.
A drop in piston, is any chev 350 type without any other mods required.
this equates to 327 ci from your holden 308

Fuel Question

Hi all,

Just wondering, if I fill my tank up, hear the click, then keep pumping the fuel in (not to the point where it comes back out the top, but just to the point where it clicks again, does that fuel get wasted when I turn a corrner and come out the top? Is there a pressure valve that just lets all the fuel over some point in the tank just flow out onto the road? I know my gauge stays at full longer so I'm thinking that it stays in there, but would like to know if I'm wasting fuel by doing this?

Thankyou.

Oh, also, My Girlfriend smashed her laser up, so we now need a real car, anyone selling a old holden, EJ or after, with rego, doesn't need to be in great condition, if rusty needs to be in bolt on pannels (I can't do floors or roofs) can you post here or email me at b schwarze at hotmail do t com. As there is a $1400 excess she hasn't much money and the trading post has nothing for us. We'd be looking at $3000 and under. As I said, doesn't have to be great, just working and rego'd, we'll do the rest.

Thank you again.
-Bryan.

PS: I have a HZ ute, 40L somthing tank.
