Power steering issue. VB commodore.

Hi there,

I’ve got a newly rebuilt power steering pump and rack in the vb. Hoses correctly connected and sound in the pump is full.

I start it up on stands to properly bleed the fluid through and as soon as I touch the steering g wheel, it violently spins to the left and wants to keep going.

Any ideas? The builder isn’t on the weekend and just wanting to check if I’m doing something stupid first.

308 cam timing.

Hi all,
Has anyone ever checked their 308 cam timing with degree wheel and dial gauge. I'd be interested in their findings.
I have a theory that most 308s could do with about half a tooth advance with a good timing chain, and a full tooth with a loose chain.

Holden, but not old

Do V6 and V8 Commodores / Statesmans use the same auto trans? (T700?)
The bolt pattern is the same on the 6's and 8's (Chev pattern?)

VB SLE 308 310 Pack

I just bought a VB SLE 308
I was advertised as a 310 Pack

It does not have the vehicle IT Tags

No Tag on left strut bar.

I have a feeling this is not a real 310 Pack

Also car has a choke which is disconnected, is it correct that only 6 cylinders have a choke?

As per the roadworthy

VIN is AVB0248895

Engine number is VT 41275

I have a bad feeling that this is a SLE V6 converted to a V8
