rust repair/prevention

been doing some thinking,
could fish oil or engine oil potentially delaminate body filler if it was sprayed in behind pinholes on a repaired panel?
would oil or similar seal the body filler and prevent delamination?

best and worst case scenario

Took my ute for a drive yesterday, very steady and within 3-4 minutes the oil light came on (never happened before) drove another block and it flashed again, pulled over oil was spraying out down the bottom of the oil pump, couldnt see exactly where, got it back home cleaned it off and found the filter was way loose and the oil was exiting there.

Tightened up the filter, topped up the oil and left it in the shed, didnt lose any oil overnight. Went down this arvo started and in a minute the oil was coming out the back of the filter again, this time like cream......water in the oil. Looks like the oring on the filter was stuffed

B@stard Holleys

Image: 

Most here will know, I love Holley Carburettors.

But, of late, new Holleys suck arse. They are not assembled correctly, they are not clean (inside), they don't work out of the box like they almost always did.

The last 6 or so new Holleys I have fitted, have had two gaskets under the primary powervalve. I had no idea why. Initially, I'd fit the carb, tune it, then send it out. It returns 3 weeks later, with a fuel consumption problem. Check the power valve, it's fine, but loose. Replace the PV gasket with one only, no more problems.

Until now.

I had a customer recently, with a brand new 4777 Holley. 650 Double Pumper, in English. Carb was fitted to a mild 327 SBC, flat tappet cam, etc. Vehicle went from Guru to Guru, to rectify a slight fuel consumption problem. 45L/100KM.

Im having trouble even looking up the part number 76546a (and the other solenoid is 76546b)

Vn heads fit into a earlier 308s

G day all,
Look just looking for some advice I'm looking at putting in vn heads onto a red 308. My question is do I have to change my cam? I know I've got to change the extractors, ports are different.

Cheers,

HT disc brake rotors?

Hey guys just wondering if HK,T,G 8cyl and 6cyl disc brakes are the same? or is one thicker than the other? If so can you put V8 discs on with 6 cyl calipers?
Cheers in advance.

HG Manual/Auto Pedal Box

Hi
Could anyone please elaborate on what the exact differences are between the manual & auto pedal box?
My basic knowledge is the manual box has a longer shaft to accomodate the clutch pedal etc.

Is there any less holes in the firewall piece of the auto box?

I guess my real question is, can i convert my manual box to an auto box without much trouble.
I will be welding other holes up on the firewall so the clutch hole won't be a problem.
Any other issues to watch out for would be greatly appreciated.....
