CAR SHOW and SWAP MEET

Lions Pride Holden Car Club of NSW is holding a car show and swap meet in conjunction with 72-80 V8 Ford Club at the Penrith Museum of Fire on Sunday 14 March 2004.
Gate proceeds are to be donated to the Museum. Lions Pride has a friendly challenge out to those Ford people that more Holdens will be on display than Fords, so we invite you out to the Museum and show your car to stick it up them lol. If you aren't a shower please drop by for a look at the cars or the parts on sale.

Diff ratios????

Can anyone answer this question???

Why is it that when referring to a diff ratio, it is said that a ratio of say, 4.11 is regarded as low ratio and 2.78 is referred to as high?? This really confuses me as I was under the impression that, the higher the number of rotations of tailshaft to the rotations of the wheel, the higher the ratio is??
All the pro street guys use 4.11 diff ratios.
Have I got this right or am I all mixed up???:P

Could someone open my eyes to this please??

Cheers
Ant

Radiator technology

I was emailed this a couple of days ago and found it quite interesting, I have blanked out ~~~ the names and posted for interest mainly but if you really really know your radiators then post your details below and we will supply the rest of the details so you can do as you wish while we check out the hoax level for you. I assume the technology is quite possible or it would not have been tendered.

Anyone know Rotaries??

Hey guys, does anyone here know where I can sell a four barrel carby and manifold for a rotary? I wouldn't have a clue.

Thanks, I gotta get rid of this [Naughty Pottyword], it's fouling up my shed!!!

Cheers

VN Fan switch problem

I have a 91 VN. I am having problems with the fan switch. It has only worked on settings 3 and 4 (HI) I recently got another secondhand one, fitted it in, still the same even though the guy guranteed it was ok. I tested it as best i could on a multi meter and it seems like it's all working. I have studied the VN manual and came across a "heater fan motor resistor" in the lines. Could this be my problem.
Thanks
Graeme
