Factory Tacho panel into VC

Hi
I'm changing the instrument panel in my VC
The original one has that dopey economy guage
I've picked up an instrument panel with tacho from an SLE (I think)
What colour wires am I looking for in the loom or will I have to get an Auto Electrician to wire it separately?

Simple HZ questions x 2

Am at a friend's, tinkering with her car and she's told me about a recent problem....
Only in the last coupla months, it's been spitting out some black soot on start up - a mark is growing on the garage wall.
I've checked the plugs and they are beautiful: recently fitted (4-6 months ago), pale tan-to-gray in colour and gapped correctly.
The oil is reasonable quality 20W50 stuff and is changed at good servicing intervals. I did an oil & filter change a few weeks ago and it doesn't appear to have used much (any?). She does report that in the last year she's had to gradually top up the oil more often between changes.

General Question

Hey guys, new to this tipe of site but it looks ok.

Ok, heres the rap. ive had this thing for vk's for ages, so i bought a $600 vk that'd been sitting under a tree for 8 months after the previous owner had cooked it (didnt know exactly what was wrong, but turned out it was radiator) and said that everything else was ok about it. Bargain!

The engine doesnt run but i want to go against the grain with it and buy a running 202 6cyl to replace the one in it. Alot of people reckon its a waste of time, alot think the opposite. I like them, very old school and not just any six. An aussie six.

X2 twin Carb throttle body Stromberg

Hi People,

I have a two part question I'll start with the first part, I found in the shed a couple of BXV-2 throttle bodies. Currently I am running the BXUV-2 standard X2, the BXV-2 bodies are larger in internal diameter. Can I do a straight swap with larger bodies. They do fit on a 179 manifold, and would I have to change the main jet size. Thanks in advance.
