308

Too much spark!

Afternoon all, have replaced the old points dizzy on the Q with a blue motor electronic. Wow what a difference that made!
Only thing that has me slightly perplexed is that when trying to turn the big girl off she just keeps running - literally putting it back into gear is the only way to get the engine to shut down with the key off. Must be picking up a power feed from somewhere or throwing current across the relay (40 amp), anyone come across this before?

Engine dates for MONARO

Hi guys

I have an opportunity to buy a 308 for my HG code date K130
October 13 1970
My HG MONARO was built in October
So my question is did Holden ever put the same months engine into their cars?
My Monaro came out with the 308 so I'm trying to get matching numbers

Bench Testing Gauges

I have a 2nd hand GTS dash (HX) and gauges that I am about to install into my Tonna, but thought I'd better check that they all work ok before going to the trouble of installing them. Do they operate off reduced voltage? Or can I just hook them up to a 12 volt battery source and test on the bench?

Thanks for the replies.

Bloody Coppers

So yesterday I was on my way to pick the kids up from school when I got pulled over out of the blue. Just minding my own business. Mr Policemen asked if I knew why I was pulled over I said no idea sir.

It's your back number plate I can hardly read it because of the dirt and dust on it.

I said oh sorry I didn't know. Would you like me to give it a wipe now for you.

No because the infringement has already taken place.

Long story short $160 and 3 demerit points. He then let me drive off with a dirty number plate. Not happy Jan.

253 and 308 strip down

If one wanted to fully strip down a 253 and a 308 down to the block what would be the minimum amount of tools I would require. Could this be done with a few sockets and spanners. If so what would be the sizes needed if possible.

Torana S 308 - How many were made?

Been asking around to see what people know. I have been told that this would have been a special order car. if this is the case anyone know how many may have been ordered like this? or how I would find out? and if it is a rare combination from factory would people really care about that?

Thanks in advance.

308 and 253 trimatics

Hi guys i have a 308 and a 253 trimatic with gearboxes, just wondering what they might be worth. Not sure if there running or not.

Also would it be worth getting them re drilled to fit a turbo patten. if so what sort of cost would i be looking at and where would be a good place to take them in Melbourne South east suburbs or along mornington peninsula to have it done. So from Dandnong to Frankston.

Thanks again

Stroker

Hi guys i have just been given a two 308 with gearboxes that have been sitting for a long time. I know one come out of a HQ 1tonner the other not sure on also not sure if there are running or not either.

Thinking of pulling them down cleaning them up and maybe get a stoker kit to put in at least one of them.

Is there much demand for this sort of setup or are people going for a small block chevs or a VN to VT 304 style with a stroker kits now days.

Have nothing to put it in. Would mainly be a talking point in the man cave or something like that.
