350 Chev codes

Hi, just bought a 4 bolt 350 Chev in pieces and trying to work out what year and any other info about what it is. I have taken some pics of all the numbers I have found and hopefully someone will be able to help. Am I right in assuming that according to this site http://www.nastyz28.... the IV in the 4th pic means it's a 1969 motor? Thanks for any help.

black motor low vacuum ,suggestions

hi again, the efi black motor in the fb is running like crap and i need a fresh point of view.
done the pinouts on the computer and fixed a few problems but nothing that would stop the car.

cant get it to run at the correct timing point (checked tdc mark with a torch and screwdriver,down the hole ,harmonic balancer NOT shifted)
which brings me back to the original diagnosis that some thing is wrong with the timing
swapped the module ,then replaced the dizzy with a less sloppy one ,still crook
i prefer to set my timing with a vacuum guage and i have had one on a bit checking the fuel pressure etc
cant get near the green zone on my dial ( around 18 psi neg)even on massive advance

i have clamped off the booster line , no change

HT V8 manifold

Isn't it amazing what you find when you start pulling 40yo cars apart. Pulled the engine out of the Brougham today for a tidy up and found a pretty ordinary repair job on the intake manifold sealed with double gaskets and lots of gooo.
Does anyone have one floating around the garage they want to sell? Must be HT 4 barrel

Painting advice needed

Image: 

I'm just about ready to paint my FC, but I'm not sure of the best way to tackle this one. It is currently Pearl White with a few primer patches along the sides where some holes were filled and scratches rubbed out but apart from that, the body is straight as a die. I will be painting it in White acrylic (Fowlers Ivory?), and my initial plan was to rub the whole car back, acrylic prime the whole thing and then apply the top coat. Now I've been told not to waste my time with priming, just rub the whole thing to key it and then apply the top coat straight on. Is this right?

flemington all holden day tomorrow....

A mate of mine recently admitted to being addicted to brake fluid. He reckoned he could stop any time.....

I was driving this morning when I saw an RAC van parked by the roadside. The driver looked very miserable and was sobbing uncontrollably. I thought to myself ‘that guy’s heading for a breakdown’.

I went to the cemetery yesterday to lay some flowers on a grave. As I was standing there I noticed 4 grave diggers walking about with a coffin... 3 hours later and they're still walking about with it... I thought to myself, these guys have lost the plot!

squeaky bushes

hi all, my dad recently got new suspension bushes put in his 4WD, i went for a drive in it today and there quite squeaky, i hopped under it and had a look and the squeak is coming from the control arm bushes (i couldn't see any trapped mice)

the bushes are blue (nylon?) so maybe superpro?

anyway, is there a way to stop them squeaking?
