V8

Can any one tell me what the (external dimensions) smallest V8 is? I want to put one in the van, but without the cylinder heads coming through the floor - so am interested in the smallest package from crossmember to rocker cover leading edge. Does not have to be GMH (cringe).

Regards

Satyr

Brock's 'Polariser'

The Brock magnets on the fuel line thing was ment to improve vehicle performance by lining up the particles fuel as it passed between them. The problem is that in doing so, no real change to the atomisation of the fuel when shot through a carby or fuel injectors was made, and so the same amount of fuel was still being delivered to burn at the same rate, but if any rate of burn change was made it would seem to make the fuel burn faster in theory, detrimental to performance.

Hows the new loco guys ?

Well we moved the site a couple of days ago and I have been flat out like a lizard drinking doing my everyday stuff.
If you are looking for hosting your holden site give us an email.

The new link is being hammered, which is just spiffy.
I get this at the bottom of the page "execution time: 1.1514880657196 sec", your times will be longer though the link. which leads me to the question.

So how is your end ?

rover v8 in FX

I'm thinking of putting a rover v8 in my FX, it hasnt got the original engine in it anyway so i've decided not to do a full original but rather a neat car with updated running gear. I know its not a Holden engine but it is all alloy which reduces weight from the original by 50 kg, has a sweet torque and power curve (thats why they use them in the rover 4wd's) has great power potential and are available pretty cheap second hand. I also think its a bit different to the v6 conversions and it'll sound a whole lot hornier. I'm expecting a lot of s#%& from the original owners but it sounds good to me. please post your comments.

EH Fender Ornaments

Gday from WA. I recently acquired a set of fender ornaments for my EH but don't know exactly where to put them. Is there such a thing as a NASCO fitting instructions sheet and, if so, could somebody send me a copy? Failing that, could somebody let me know where I should drill the first hole - I should be able to work the others out. Thanks in advance for your help.

186S problems

Finally picked up my 186S carb from the Carburettor Cervice Centre on Parramatta Rd, mounted it etc and tuned it up to find the following problems:

first 2% of accelerator depression causes engine to miss/splutter[starve?], next 40-60% causes awesome smooth power increase [nice!] final depression causes flat-spot in performance - no longer has that "urge" to pull, like it is flooding mildly.
