I've always liked them.
When I got my hearing aids I was asked if I had ever been exposed to loud noise. I said yes, many bands in the 70s, race cars, rally cars, top fuel dragsters. She pulled me up at top fuel dragsters and said they are the number one worst thing you can do to your hearing if you don't wear ear plugs.

LC GTR XU-1 3100X Engine

Available for sale I have an LC XU1 3100X engine - available short or with hi comp head
I've owned the car since1987 and this engine would suit a period correct genuine car that currently does not have the correct engine. Cast date L280 (28/12/70 @2pm).
Information provided it was fitted in an early 1971 car manufactured in February that year.

On the 24/1/90 it had 79,488 miles. Today it has 86,661miles, a rebuild was carried out in 1988 by Russell Jones and a freshen up by Jim Rowley in 2005 @ 86,134miles. Just a hone, new rings, bearings. I have actually taken the head off it and it still has the hone marks on the bore. Watson racing cam with solids, 60' Pistons and done very little work since I've owned it over the last 29 years.

Time for a new fuel pump?

I'm putting a fuel pressure regulator regulator on our EH to drop the fuel pressure down to suit the Dellortos. They should have 2 1/2 to 3 psi.
Before the regulator went on I put a pressure gauge in the fuel line between the second and third carbies to see what pressure I had to start with. I've got just over 4 PSI which is way to much for my carbies.
I noticed that the pressure drops back to zero within a few minutes after turning the car off. Is this supposed to happen?
I assume it is bleeding back through the relief valve in the pump, but I thought the relief valve would maintain pressure when the motor isn't running, ready for the next start up.
The glass bowl on the pump is always 95% full, even if it's been sitting for a week.
Is it time for a new (electric?) pump?

Identify holden 186 cams

Hi
Hoping some one can help identify the two camshafts I have, both came out of 186 engines.

1. First one has STL 1635 (the 6 could be something else), with a big 8 stamped on the end. and no other stamps of marks on the shaft.

2. Second has 0 and 6 (or 9) stamped on the end. It once had I believe Holden stamped into the shaft and a number starting with 1.
