Something missing from the dizzy

happy NYE to everyone!
I spent a while today finding the right place for the dizzy, running much smoother now, pit of a rough idle but as soon as the foots on the throttle it revs cleanly up to about 5000rpm. I have encountered another problem however, either I am loosing my marbles of my dizzy has a part missing. there seems to be nothing to clamp it down. no bolts, no brackets. Is there something hidden away there that locks it in position or am I likely to be missing something?
cheers

BANJO WHEEL

Hi Guys and Happy New Year to All.
Does anybody know what brand this Banjo style steering wheel is and if anyone in Australia stocks them? The one pictured is for sale on EBAY in the USA, but I'd like to see it in the flesh and make sure it will fit my HT column. Any leads or help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
homer55

dizzy moving, looks like I may have found my problem.

so it looks like I have overlooked a pretty simple problem. I have avoided messing with the dizzy position because I figure it couldn't have changed from just sitting still for 4 months. today I thought I would get any dust out that might be in there, to my surprise the whole thing is not secure. I persisted to drive around the block, moving it about 1cm at a time. now its sounding much better, not backfiring, and hardly any bad noise at all. I'm thinking I should run a timing light over it. can I get away with buying a cheap one or will it not be accurate enough?

valve stem colour

Hi,all...
I've got one cylinder head off the red 253 and gave it valve grind,even though the valves and seats probably didn't really need it....they only had spotty discolouring,but I did it anyway.
But I noticed a couple valve stems had a sort of grey/brown discolouring about half way along their length...for about a third of their length. Makes me think from overheating.
If so,does that mean the stems are probably out of shape and need replacing?? And also does that mean the bores in the head the stems slide through would also be warped??

Air Compressor??

I have an issue with my air compressor.
It's 2.5 horse power direct drive Black Ridge (supercrap auto) & when I turn it on after it builds up a bit of presser I get a loud whistle like howl that seems to be coming from around the power switch/presser relief valve. The unit is a about 3 years with about 30 hours of used.
Any ideas?
Cheer Shane

Stumped

OK, so got the 253 rebuilt, all good. 500 k's in and she just stopped on me on the freeway the day before Christmas. Got spark, got fuel. but when i try to start it blows it all out the top of the carb. Mechanic opens on Monday so i will take it back. but it is doing my head in as to what it could be.
Any suggestions?

Holding on to that old holden

Couldn't resist the temptation to post the link from an article in todays courier mail.

Great article about holding on to an old EK holden and going against the grain of our modern throwaway society.
