Weber 34 on the HQ

Well, I followed through with the step from the Holley 350, and threw a 34ADM into the Q..... so far so good!!!!! Haven't had a test drive yet, as I'm without throttle setup hahaha.

Can anyone post pics of their throttle on the back half of the Weber?

Vacuum advance

Morning guys,

Been reading a little about vaccum advance which may help me solve my carb problem of hesitation at revs. My advance on the electronic distributor is cone yes to the manifold tap along with the brake booster (manifold advance) whilst all the plugs on carb are all blocked off apart from the erg and canister taps on the carb are joined via a pipe.
Will swapping the vaccum advance on the distributor over to the carb (ported advance) help with the running of the car?

Thanks in advance guys!!

twit Tuesday

A policeman patrolling Kings Cross spots a huge black guy dancing on the roof of a Ford Sierra.....

He gets on the radio and calls for backup.......

Station ...."What's the situation?"

"A big fat darkie is dancing on a car roof."

You can't say that over the radio!" replies the operator,

"You have to use the correct terminology as they taught you on the radio course at the police academy"

"OK".......
"Kilo... Zulu .... Tango .... Sierra...."

Budget Air Compressor

Hi guys,

Glad to see the site is up and running again. I don't post very often but I do check it regularly. I am hoping to get an air compressor so i can do a little bit of painting, and to occasionally run an impact gun. I want a 10AMP unit so I can use it anywhere. I will only use it sporadically so I cant justify buying what i really want (a Peerless). So for around the $500 mark Id like to know what people recommend.

179

Hi has anyone had a problem where water leaks from the bottom of the timing case cover on a 179 Red motor. I had what I thought was a leaking water pump (casting where lower radiator hose connects had a section which corroded away), but when I fitted the new water pump (I bought it pre-painted) and started to refill the radiator after about 2 litres it started to leak water from the bottom of the timing cover through what looks like a slot. Any ideas what it could be? Or what I need to do to fix it?

Help

I have a 179 in an EH and I have just changed the water pump. The end of the pump body had corroded and started to leak. I am assuming the leak was from the pump and section of the pump body was missing. Well after changing it and filling it up I noticed water leaking out of the bottom of the timing chain cover. I will recheck the pump, but does anyone have any thoughts of what may be wrong or I may have done wrong.
