What the Stromberg????

Yanked apart a WW Stromberg to put on my 186S when i first built it and the motor has never run quite right, and iv narrowed it down to the fuelling system or valve train problem.

It runs like crap at around 1200-1700rpm after it warms up and sometimes it dosen' idle.

I was looking at my repair manual the other day and i saw a note in the throttle body disassembly part... DO NOT LOSE THE AIR BLEED RESTRICTOR WIRE???? dont remeber seeing it... ever. Could this be my issue? And what does it look like?

HD/HR Holden Premier NASCO Speedometer

Hi there guys, I've owned this old Speedometer for a while now and i'm just wondering if you can help me identify it.
I have never seen one like it but i have seen a Genuine Smiths NASCO HD/HR Premier Dash Clock in the same colour scheme. I am wondering if it is a NASCO Accessory for a HD/HR Premier or is it off an Earlier Holden?
Can anyone confirm this?
Thanks, Mitch.

EH Bonnet springs

Hi Guys. Installed a after market HQ type master cylinder in the EH. I have removed the bonnet spring as it fouls on the master cylinder. Has anyone installed gas struts in place of the springs? and if so, what model car were they off.
