Just fitted the twins on the Dirty D

On the first start up the single carb was way too small for the new engine combo, my intention was to run in on the single Stromberg but it's way too small for the task.
So the on goes the X2 inlet & twin
Strombergs & all of a sudden it's idling much smoother & just needs some fine tuning now.

Cam run in on the Dirty D

https://youtu.be/7E9...
Sounds great but currently a little under carb'ed with the single carb & the twins will be on soon after I sort out a sticky front carb.
https://youtu.be/wnw... idling after cam run in, massive effort from HQ308 for spending his Saturday arvo helping me out.

I also picked up my Bosch HEI from Hume Performance, they had reco'ed it & had given it a re-graph to suit the cam upgrade.

Bit more done on the Dirty D

Got my 3 row radiator & tranny cooler mounted today.
I made up a filler piece to go in between the radiator & the support panel, I used 25 x 20mm alloy angle & I boxed the corners & painted it satin black after an etch & I finish off with a thin piece of pinchweld.

More Dirty D Goodness

On the home stretch now with the X202 swap, I've mounted a tranny cool for the 253 spec'ed trimatic & I've since repainted the engine fan from silver to Chevy orange to match the engine.

Replacement Ignition Coil

Hi all. In the middle of replacing the ignition coil in my '75 HJ Premier. Engine is the red 202.
The ignition coil in there at the moment is an old Lucas with little to no other markings on it. What would be the best replacement for this? I've been looking at the Bosch SU12R which seems to be the best bet but just wanted to double check.

Bit more done on the X202

Slow progress due to life getting in the way, but I've got a little more done.
I've fitted a bolt in copper 3 row from Aussie Desert Coolers in Vic & with a factory fan & a Powerbond street series harmonic balancer it's a little tigth but it fit's & it should work nicely with the warm-ish X202.

HJ Kingswood thermo fan install

Picked up a 14 inch fan for the stock 202. Can I use the temp sender in the head to control it? Or do I need to buy a temp switch, which should have been in the bloody kit in the first place

350 holley fuel rich running issue

for some reason my holley 350 is leaking fuel in the vacuum chamber behind the power valve making my car run really rich, but still pretty good.
I have a lumpy cam in it, with 107 lobe sep and 287 #50 duration with 430 valve lift.
the vacuum is at 13inch which is normal for a hot motor to have low vacuum like that, so ive got currently a 7.5 power valve.
at first I thought the power valve that was in it was faulty so I replaced it.

Raised White Letter Tyres

G'day folks,
I've asked this question on a few fb pages and done a lot of searching, but haven't really found much info other than the usual extremes of opinions found about this topic (great vs terrible) or manufacturers info, which is clearly biased.
Basically...I love the look of the raised white letter tyres. I'd love to get a set for my ute, but I just want to find out people's opinions of them in terms of wet weather performance, durability, which brands and particular models are good, which are not, etc.
