WHAT IS CAUSING MY CARBY TO WHISTLE

Hi all you carby Gurus,

My HJ Wagon has a 465 Holley on it. Recently I increased the jet size to size 61 to give it a bit more go as it was starving a bit for fuel with the size 57 jets. I took it for a decent run recently and after it had warmed up there was a noisy whistle coming from the carby. It seemed to be more noticable on acceleration but was there at idle also.

It may only be cooincidence that I noticed the sound after putting in larger jets as I have only been driving around town at low speeds for a while.

weber 34ADM and pudseys job

does any one in Adelaide have a weber 34ADM in good condition and set right for a blue 202 3.3ltr?
I'm in urgent need of a carburettor for my VH cos I took my varajet off to clean it and i'm fairly sure its completely rooted anyway so might as well upgrade to a better carby. Although i'm not exactly made of money right now so cheap option would be good.

Windscreen Seals

How much do I love this "unseasonal" rain in QLD?

Not much cause everything is leaking! I am having to replace the quater window seals cause the water is just running through them like a creek but the front and rear windscreens are leaking from the top and bottom and I was wondering can I use a windscreen sealant to fix them up instead of having to spend a helluva lot on getting the rubbers replaced - im a bit short on dough atm and shes my daily.

Rust in fuel tank

OK, rust in fuel tank due to standing for 6 years. Fuel seems to separate when standing, into water and varnish . Also although car is running OK, I believe water is in the fuel tank, pulled out sender unit -was covered in rust. There is no drain plug under tank. Any product can be used to clean water out without removing tank? Also rust scale?

Thanks

Vk Calais

How much would you pay for a neat 3.3 injected vk calais silver with the original rims, lowered slightly, extractors and exhaust, resprayed about 3 years ago, registered and with a roadworthy certificate?
I am thinking about this for an everyday driver as i know somebody selling it.
Are these cars reliable and easy to work on (easier than my bloody rodeo)?
What are some common faults to look for?
Any replies appreciated!
