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.

back together,,,, kind of....

The ute is back in one piece to make sure all the gaps are correct and the body lines match. All I have to get right now is the nose cone.
Once its all checked its back apart for paint. The only body mod to finish is the enclosure into the tray for the cab extension as we cut the back wall outof the cab for extra storage and some stereo gear and I also need to make access for the main wiring loom as the hole was welded up on the factory one.
Im still up in the air on what to do for a tray cover, Im thinking one of those top fit tonneau covers or some kind of hard deck lid.

New Year's Eve?

So what are youse doing, to see in Twenty-Thirteeen?

I've long been over Fortitude Valley for N.Y.E., due to the influx of bimbo's and idiots, so I'm off to a pub out in the 'burbs.

With some blokes and chicks I know, I'll be see a bunch of dirty bands, including the guys at top of post...
Not just guys, but legends.
No - icons!
No... HEROES of what is best termed Yob Rock.... Cosmic Psychos.

FS panevan project

Anyone want a panelvan project? Pic above is how the van looked about 7 years ago, and the attachments show what it is like now. I had been intending to do quite a restoration job on it, but it is becoming plainly obvious that I will never get the time to even start the project. Was my daily driver up until about 4 years ago, and has been sitting ever since, and the longer it sits, the less of it there will be...
