Grumpy 253

G'Day

Took my ute for a drive today, it wasn't scorching but i think about 26-28 here in WA.

My 253 kept stalling, and was a bit off a mole to start i think it has something to do with the higher air temp and the subsequent less efficient burn. Or maybe i have fuel boil. I adjusted the idle a bit quicker and hopefully that will solve it.

When it is cold it starts up beautiful, if i haven't driven her for a while it likes 4 pumps of fuel then first crank shes off.

I've cross checked my head numbers with heads i have that are not on an engine at the moment and it looks like they're the later style red heads and i've read that some people in warmer climates have problems with fuel boil with these exhaust cross over heads.

HK Holden - what is the maximum diameter tailshaft that will fit in the tunnel

Hi Guys,
Having a tailshaft built to suit a 9" in my HK. Running a Chev 350 with 350 trans, currently have a 10Bolt and the 2.75 diameter tailshaft. Speaking to the tailshaft guys, they recommended going for a 3.5" diameter shaft for strength (car rev's to about 5.5K) based on rpm and horsepower (engines got 330HP).

Just wondering if anybody has a shaft this size in a HK T or G, and what is the max they have used - don't want to get a shaft made and find it doesn't fit.

Im being told about $500 to do this in Adl - anybody got advice on the price?

HQ Fuel Gauges

Wondering if there is any way of checking if a HQ fuel gauge is magnetic of thermal just be looking at it? I know that if the gauge is wired up you see if the needle drops fast or slow (Magnetic = fast, Thermal = slow). Are there any distinguishing marks or features to look for to detrmin if it's magnetic or thermal?
Cheers.

Fuel Line Thingy

Hi All,

I'm replacing the fuel lines on my 253 and putting them back to stock (removing the dual fuel), and I need to make the steel fuel line from the fuel pump to the carby (unless someone has one they want to get rid of).

Not too much of a problem.

I have a question - what's the purpose of the item in the picture I've highlighted with the arrow? Obviously it's a stock item and I'm wondering if I need it in my replacement fuel line.

Cheers

PS: The picture isn't of my engine.

Chev waterpump bolt question

Hi guys
HQ with a 350. Put a new waterpump on today and found that one of the 4 bolts holding the pump to the block goes into the waterjacket. Do I need sealant as at the moment I have just screwed it back in but it is leaking very slightly. Did a search with no answer. If I use sealant, what is recommended.
Cheers for any replies.
