Chainsaw Guts Back

Not OH but may be handy for chainsaw owners.

I've had a little Poulan 14" chainsaw for 12 years now, gets a good hiding when used and I'm very happy with it. But lately it was getting a bit gutless, and I thought I was up for a new one. Did a bit of research on You Tube and ended up taking the exhaust off to find it a bit blocked, both the spark arrester and silencer were a little dirty but not too bad. Anyway, I cleaned them both up and wow, its guts are back and it runs like new. Very happy with a no cost fix. I'll check my Stihl weedwacker next.

Camping in the old HR

Image: 

Took my boys up to Moore River camping - thought I'd post the 50 year old car
which was full to the brim with tents, chairs, cooking equip and fishing rods.

Sat on 68 miles an hour (110km/h) - sweet 186S sound. Stopped off on way home
at the Gravity Discovery Centre but couldn't get Henry the HR to turn over. Saw
the battery terminal was a bit furry so cleaned the insides up by scratching it
with the spanner and away it went again.

As I was getting into Perth I noticed the Power glide wasn't gliding like it was.
When I got home and out of the car I noticed tranny fluid drips down the driveway
and a small puddle of oil.

So Idled the car and nothing happened - put it into Drive with hand brake on and

Another RMS rego glitch.

Took the Rav in for a rego inspection (pink slip) today.
It passed OK, but the online renewal could not recognise the Rav from the rego number and said the pink slip would have to be done by manually, which meant I got a good old fashioned hand written pink pink slip.
I got home and used the online rego checker to make sure it was actually still registered.
My rego number DJ *** came up twice, once for the Rav and again for a 1998 Kawasaki, which explains why it could not recognise the vehicle from the rego number.
All older NSW bike registration numbers had two letters and three numbers which is the same sequence as a lot of personalised plates, including mine.
I've had my DJ*** plates for 39 years and this has never happened before.

Cold start

Evening guys,

A newbie to the older cars. Probably been covered somewhere before but cold starts....
I'm used to driving brand new cars so the old HR is difficult.
I struggle to start it when cold and it takes along time.
Any tips?
Choke? Number of pumps of accelerator? Get the carb tuned?

Cheers guys

Hi Guys,
Just after some advice. I have a 308 HQ coupe and I'm just about to get a rebuild. however, Im looking for some different set ups or combinations. At the moment I'm running a standard 308 with a M21 gearbox and the large Salisbury diff. I hope to keep the gearbox and diff and just rebuild the engine with ..... any suggestions ??? looking for a turn key cruiser with a little bit of grunt nothing to out there or expensive. Any help would be helpful.
a mate told me to get rebuild it with a
-286 crane cam
-600 Holley
-ACL Flat top pistons 10/1 comp
-ACL race series head gaskets
-ported and polished heads
All balanced
that's it, I think the cam will be too much for the M21 gear box. but I'm no expert.
