very sad week for vl

not having a good week with the vl, first battery dies, replaced the battery. now the ignition barrel has shat itself, so its touch and go to get the car started. the other day while driving along, 2 spark plugs blew themselves off. Wat could of caused that??????

now the car sounds like a choking vaccuum cleaner, and it has no throttle response, e.g. revving, it coughs and splatters, havent tried revvin it high as it sounds like [Naughty Pottyword] at 2000rpm.

Distribtors, ingition and EFI

Background
-----------------

As a project I am going to convert my VK EST (carby) car to EFI.

I have most parts, excluding the electronic distributor.

I just read a post that mentioned Megasquirt. I did a search on this do-it-yourself EFI and like the Idea. It got me thinking about both fuel and spark management.

The question
---------------

I am hoping someone can educate me about the differences between:

308 Recipie

Hi all,
I recently bought myself a HZ sedan, am looking in the near future to turn my beast into a BEAST,
Can anyone give me a good recipie for a 308, I don't give a [Naughty Pottyword] if it chews through the fuel, as most of you know, the sound & feeling of that engine at high revs is just too addictive but I just want more. hoping for some holleys soon but still undecided as to what life entails yet for my new pride & joy.

'Crystal Clear Sound' Wagga, DONT GO HERE!!!

Ive just had some 'accessories' put in my vehicle by Shane from "Crystal Clear Sound" who is working from the rear of "AUTOPRO" (was AutoBarn)in Wagga Wagga NSW. I just want to stress to anyone who may read this that they SHOULD NOT have their car left to him for any work. He doesnt know what he's on about, he's dishonest, he broke that much trim etc in my pride & joy & tried to bodge it up so i wouldnt notice, but i checked everything & it's amazing what i found.

please help...wierd oil problem with my 253

hi,
ok, when i first got my 253 going, it ran and pumped oil well..oil was pumping out push rods and spraying onto the rockers..but then the next time i went to start it, about 2 weeks later, i had no oil pressure. so i took the pump off, it looked pretty good inside, i got a new gasket kit and filter for it, primed it and put it back on..
now i have oil pressure(the oil light on the dash goes out) but the top end is terrible rattley and is getting almost no oil, only a tiny bit of oil dribbles onto the rocker that i can see when i rev the engine right up...

know where to get a holley 465 carb?

hey everyone.
I hope I dont seem lazy in just chucking this question to you guys (but I have shoped around).
would anyone know where I might get a good price on a reconditioned Holley 465 4BBL carby?
I found a guy with one with one for 395+30 postage and 50 for a manual choke kit. This seems pretty good but thought it might save me to see what you all think?
tah T..

Oil leaks in car

i posted a while back about problems i have with oil leaks inside the car. its been a while and ive since found the problem.. Oil has been traveling up the speedo cable and through the dashboard of the car (which has destroyed the carpet). The solution is to replace the oil seal that is situated on the bottom of the cable. My problem is that ive tried to fix this by wrapping some thread tape around the seal before refitting the plastic red cog that it sits in.

Tachnometer

Hello everyone,
The problem is i think my tachometer is not reading correct
my commodore has a 3.3 and it has a VB SLE dash that was probably in a v8 is it possible that tacho could be reading wrong because in first at 60km it says 3500rpm and it sounds a hell of a lot louder than 3,5 and at 4 it loses pull thats about 70km i think im probably reving it at 5500 but im not sure. The gearbox is a crapy holden 4 speed m21 i think.
