350 holley carby issue, car goes to stall when i screw the idle set screw to idle higher

350 holley carby issue, car goes to stall when i screw the idle set screw to idle higher, which I want to do because the engine is close on dying in gear at idle. any ideas why it would doo that? i backed off the float in case it was flooding, no change, i raised the float a fract in case it was too lean, no change, I used the mixture screws, it ran a bit smoother but as soon as i tried to raise the idle, it almost died.
thanks in advance for any help

Trimatic Kickdown solenoid wiring connector

I am after the connector and wire that connects to the kickdown solenoid on a Trimatic transmission. I reckon any model Holden that has a Trimatic will have the same connector. If you have an old harness laying around that you would be happy to sacrifice this wire from I would be eternally grateful. Please let me know if you can help

Distribuitor regraphing.

I've been thinking of getting my spare blue motor dizzy advance regraphed and the dizzy reconditioned.
What is the procedure?
Do they need to have car so they can graph it to suit the car with the motor running? To me this would be the logical and best way.
Otherwise, can they do it if cam specs, carby type , head specs, gearing and wheel size are all supplied over the phone or by email? ( I am a long way from anywhere motorsposrtish)
Can anyone recommend a place that does them and give a very broad idea of the cost?

starter motor/ignition switch issues

so it was really odd, ive never experienced this one before....
I start up my car... the starter motor appeared to not pull in its gear, the motor was running, but the gear sounded like it was hitting the flexplate.... it was bloody loud.. twice in a row that happened then i stop the car, i start it again, noise gone.
i get home, park the car, decide to check out it what the hell happened.. i try to start the car.. turning the key in the ignition felt immediately clunky, then freed up like normal, and the normal ignition lights come on on the dash, but nothing happened when i try to start the car.

Need to re-tap 3x Exhaust Flange Stud holes? What tap's?

Hi, I have a 1981 VC Commodore with Starfire 4cyl Motor.

I'm re-doing the manifold gasket but the 3x exhaust Flange studs are heat rusted solid.
One has snapped off and I've drilled it out close to the thread sides.

The other two are complete but I plan to remove them also.

One of the local stores suggested they were 3/8" studs? Is this correct?

Also I now need to understand what the correct "Tap" is to buy.
