Need help! Exhaust fumes inside

I have a problem with exhaust fumes getting inside the car when I open the drivers window in my HQ. I have replaced the boot seal with a brand new one and have checked the entire boot for holes to which there are none.Does anyone have any ideas? Obviously its a vaccum problem as theres no fumes when all the windows are up.

Holiday Jobs

I have five days off this Xmas starting Saturday, so plan to spend them getting the EJ fully sorted out. All parts have arrived and this is what I will be doing:

1: New Tailshaft. Had a brand new shaft built by the guys at Hardy-Spicer. Old one was dented, Yoke was scored and joints were worn so not much more to have a brand new shaft built. 2.75" as opposed to original 2.5". Shaft got a couple of tiny dings in shipping, but pretty sure it will be OK. Hopefully will finally cure my vibration issues!

2: New Rear Shocks. Old ones are leaking badly and not doing the job. Pair of nice new gas jobbies will be fitted

3: New Rear Brakes. Will strip down and rebuild the rear brakes, new cylinders and shoes.

4: Full underbody degrease and clean

For those that X-mas isn't Merry

I would like to just wish those like me that don't have anybody at x-mas, I hope they just got through a day that is really hard when all you hear about is people being with family and friends and having a good time...So to those who spent it alone I hope it was "A Good Day".

V8 block- HP cast on the side?

All,
Wondering if anyone out there can help me. A few years ago my mate had an old v8 engine sitting on a pallet in his towing yard with HP cast into the side of it. The bottom left hand side of the block normally where 253, 308 etc is cast. It looked like it was painted red/ orange years before.
I've never heard of this before or since. Does anyone have an idea of what it could be? I didn't pay too much attention to it at the time and I've been wondering about it for years.
Cheers
