Amelia Earhart

It's really looking like she and Fred Noonan forced down on Gardner Island and transmitted for Days afterwards.

Incredulous was the Schoolgirl who picked up Amelia's post forced down Messages and noted what she thought were the words "New York City".

Why the Coast Guard couldn't interpret that is beyond me.

Advance Question

Still not happy with the car's performance. Have ironed out most of the issues but the engine does not have as much power as it should, or even as much as it did on the drive up from Melbourne (before I started screwing around with it!!)Basically, it feels like the engine is struggling a bit, reaches maximum revs very quickly and is not as smooth as I would like. Top speed is only around 80 kms with the engine feeling like it is at full revs.

To summarise: Red 138 engine from LC Torana. Have replaced carby with rebuilt unit and installed a Chinese HEI dizzy along with the correct coil. Originally I set timing at 5 BTDC but found after some tweaking that it seems to run a little better at around 8-10 BTDC.

RIP DENNIS FERGUSON

Herd the greatest news today that serial paedophile Dennis Ferguson was found dead in his Sydney home. I don't usually support any of this but was glad the world is rid of that kind of person. Kids are free now.

Flushing Cooling System

Why don't red engines have a drain tap on the block? I can't find one on my 138 red. How are you supposed to effectively drain and flush the cooling system without a tap on the block?

Vs Commodore Heating Problems.

Hey guys.
I have 1995 Vs Commodore 3.8L V6 Series 1 Acclaim model.
Went for a drive this morning and It started over heating within 5 minutes.
Pulled over stopped the car and The over flow was just gushing out.
Now I'm not sure if the fan kicked in or not but would i have to replace the Thermo fan and the Thermo stat? or is there something i should be looking for?
Cheers guys.
