does anybody know...

where I can find car covers that are designed for inside use to keep dust off cars, with nice soft fabric that won't scratch as they are put on or taken off. Most covers on the greater market are too harsh for my liking, as they are intended for out door use in all weather.

HZ Extractors

Hi all,
WOuld appreciate any thoughts/advice/sales of extractors to suit a red 202. It is my daily drive. My mechanic recommends I fit them, based on the fact that they machined my current standard manifold, and it didn't last long before warping again. I want to keep things original/standard if I can, which they are happy to go with if I wish, but they would recommend getting new extractors, if I have the budget. Many thanks in advance, for any recommendations.

4L60 or 4l60E ???

Updating drive line in EK, will be old school carby SBC and four speed auto, just wondering what peoples thoughts are regarding the choice of manual or electronic control on the 4L60's?

Manual Control (4l60)
- TV cable can be a little difficult to get exactly right set up
- need an external lock up converter switch
- weaker 3 pinion planetary gear than late 4l series box's
+ cheaper than later boxes
+ no external controller required

Electonic Control (4l60 - 4l65 - 4l70)
- requires stand alone control module
- dearer than manual control box
+ easier to get hold of than early box
+ later series (65 and 70) have 5 pinion planetary gear
+ Lock up converter controlled by stand alone controller

202 First Startup

This Video has so much useful info for those OHers new to Ignition Timing and starting an Engine with a dry Carburettor ... http://www.youtube.c...

1. Successful Cap Prime with the Fuel Can removed from the Firezone.
2. The Engine has Plug Leads in the wrong Locations which is why it has that staccato misfiring Sound.
3. The Engine Backfires from under the Throttle Spindle proving the misplaced Plug Leads are causing Spark to occur when an Inlet Valve is open.
4. Rapid Cycling of the Throttle delivers whatever Fuel can be scavenged from the bottom of the Carburettor. This is a very useful tactic when the Battery is low. I would have done a 2nd Cap Prime at this Point.

Problem with my T400

Hi, I have a problem with my T400 auto. I can't change it down to "L" low gear. Do I just need to adjust my cable or is there something else to look for.

I also had a Stage 2 shift kit put in it by the local auto transmission shop and suspect they may have adjusted the cable to replace some seals.

I also have a problem with the shift changes since having the Stage 2 kit put in. It changes from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd too early. It will not rev out in these gears. Any suggestions?

202 tapping - video link

OK guys now that I finally got her started I've got a loud ticking noise coming from the valve train somewhere around 5 & 6 cylinders when the rpm gets over 1500.

Just to fill you guys in, the cam is new, the hyd. lifters are new and the pushrods are new. i did however stinge for the time being on the rockers and have put the standard rockers back on (trying my best to match the rockers up with their bridges.

Looks like I'll be taking the rocker cover off and checking the lash again?

Hunt for power

Hi all,

Im hunting for more power now in my motor now its up and running.
Ive been looking around at getting a better head for it. How much of a difference would I see from a Yella Terra head? There are always a few on ebay and one good one about to finish in an hour or so. I dont have the money right now but just doing my research.
Also, do lightened flywheels make much of a difference? There are new Yella Terra ultra light ones on ebay but are they realy worth the $500?
Any advice is much appreciated and any other ideas for more power would be awesome.
