Dads FJ Ute Supercharger??

I was wondering if a supercharged blower similar to the HR Ute on the cover of Street Machine Arpil 2007 would fit under the hood on an FJ Ute??
My dad says it would have heaps of space but would this effect the performance due to being stuck under the hood all the time?
Forgive me if this is a stupid question but im only 13 years old.
Cheers

Questions on retiming from scratch and TDC - Following paedia page but not getting very far

OK so I have my manifold back on, but somehow seemed to have screwed the markings, as all I seem to getting are back or after fires depending on where I have things set.

I'm doing this myself, so pulled the LH rocker in order to see what the valves are doing, and placed a small piece of paper towel just sitting in plug 1 thread to identify the compression stroke, though wondering if I've somehow screwed that part up. It seems to me that the balancer line matches perfectly with the timing marks, yet all I seem to be able to produce +/- 20deg is either an after or backfire, depending on whether I'm trying to advance or retard it.

Broken a handbrake before? Early commodore disk rear broken three times from normal use!

Anyone had this problem before?

It seems the weakest point in the early commodore disk rear handbrake system is not the cable - but the arm the cable acts on. I have had my right rear handbrake 'arm' break on three occasions now,
and before you ask - i DONT rip my handbrake while moving etc. It tends to break if you pull it anything other than very gently when parking on an upward slope.

Need help wiring a Jacobs FC1000 unit to a Bosch HEI dizzy and HEC716 coil. Cant get it to work

Hey there everyone,

I recently purchased a Jacobs FC1000 unit, (second hand), and went to install it on my 308, with bosch HEI commodore dizzy and bosch HEC716 coil.

Followed the instruction and still cant get it to work

Was wondering if anyone has installed one of these before, or if they can tell me a way of testing the unit to make sure it is working. i.e. ohms or volts at certain points.

Thanks in advance
