Matt
Also i just put a deposit down on that 327 chevy i have mentioned in previous postings. She should go pretty sweet once she is done.

253 engine and gearbox

Hey, I was wondering if it's possible to get 'racing' type flywheels and harmonic balancers for a 253? Ones that are lighter and handle more horsepower (you know the type). Do any companies produce these in Australia?

Also, I am wondering if any of the standard V8 gearboxes (aussie 3, 4, etc) have an overdrive as their final gear, like about a 0.8:1 ratio? Or are all of them direct drive? Cheers

rocker bolt keeps snapping

hey all.

im putting the rocker bolts onto my red 202 and have a slight problem. the bolt connecting the rocker of the exhaust valve on the first cyl (the very first in the line of bolts) keeps snapping. i bought some new bolts to replace the one i snapped from supercheap auto but they also keep snapping. I take it these high tensile ones arent that high tensile. as i am only tightening them to 20 lbs/ft making sure that each cyl is tdc before tightening, i cant see why the first bolt keeps breaking, all the other bolts seem to tighten fine so i dont know what the problem is.

Picnic radio

Recently acquired a "picnic" radio at a flea market.
It is complete with the under dash mounting that it slides into.
I have discovered that the battery that goes in the radio, is 6 volts.
However I'm wondering if the radio works off 12 volts once located in its carrier in the vehicle.
There is some kind of "transformer" at the rear of the carrier, but no voltage notice etc.
Can anyone provide me with more information or a wiring diagram?

308 pre pollution

gday..
can any one tell me if its legal to put a 308 from an HQ into a HJ??...the reason i ask is because the HQ had no pollution gear at all and i thing my HJ(75) is suposed to have some pollution gear.... my HJ was originally a 308 but some [Naughty Pottyword] changed it to a 253..... any way is it legal to do..will it pass a roadworthy??...if its not allowed can you just change the manifold off the 253 to the 308?? because the 253 has the pollution gear...

I have been told they are out of a UC sunbird 4 cyl SLE i have looked into these but there is very limited information on them.

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.
