308 holley 600 jet size??

a little help please

I recently changed carb on my hj wagon and now it stammers just before the secondarys open, with foot to floor. which jet size should i have.
the car was dyno tuned with a 600 vac secondary the carb needed a rebuild so i just brought a brand new carb same specs and swaped jets and vac spring the pump cam was the same.

jets are 60 at the moment the new carb came with 65

308 is standard as far as i know apart from extractors and 2 1/4 pipes made 185 atw on dyno.

Overdrive Trimatics

Has anyone ever heard of Volvos and Peugots using Holden Trimatics in the late 1970s with Laycock type overdrives? http://www.ozrodders... (third comment down)
Apparently they did. It was a way of satisfying the local content regulations.
The obvious thing to think next is, how hard would it be to either put a Volvo Trimatic with overdrive in a Trimatic gearboxed Holden, or, put the Volvo overdrive on the back of a Holden Trimatic?
Food for thought.

GTR

Hi
Does anyone know if there is a way to prove an LJ is a GTR if the Tags have been removed, I would say the motor has been changed and it has the flutes in the guards, dash and the usual bolt on bits. But I was wondering if there was something else I could check to be sure.

Thanks

sump full of iced coffee

G'day fellow Holden tragics :)
This site is a terrific resource for me,so I thought i'll put a little back in.
Over the past couple of months I've pulled my HJ down to about 928 pieces. The engine had been out for 6 or 7 weeks while doing all sorts of tidying up. Yesterday it was time to fire the old girl up again!I was a little worried as it now sports a new 34adm weber,HEI ignition,Electric water pump,thermo,s and a bunch of other untested bits and pieces.....Anyway........Bit of fuel down the carby,a few coughs and farts and she burts back into life and settles down to a good idle. GREAT!!

I let it run for 10 minutes or so while I give the cooling system the once over..All seemed good.So I turned it off,cracked a tinny, and sat down feeling pretty damn fine!!

HK, HT, HG brake boosters

I know that the brake booster bracket for a HK has an off-set on it, but can I get away using a HT, HG bracket which doesn't have the off-set if I'm going to remove the clutch master cylinder.
