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.

Old 202

hey all.. I need some advice and info on my engine.

first of all, i want to say that my background on cars is pretty low so if i say somthing which makes no sense or is completely wrong, break it to me slowly.

I noticed recently that my hj (202) was chewing up too much petrol. after speaking with a mate that is pretty handy with cars, we decided to run a compression test on it, which failed miserably. (the worst cyl#3 barely pulled 30psi)

Problems with the site

Hi all,

You may have noticed the site is not working from time to time, mainly on weekends. This has been happening since we moved in Jan.(ahh...the story I could tell)
This week we should have another link in so all will be rock solid again. Bear with us as we wait for the lines to be installed. Yer Yer, maybe we should not be using such dodgey services...you get that.

BTW. Our upstream provider has writen us a nice email informing us that the account has gone over again.
