Is the FB coil a ballast coil?

I've replaced the points with an electronic ignition and "standard" 3 ohm coil. Starts ok and runs for two minutes or so then starts missing under load, backfiring etc. is this because I should have a ballast coil with 1.5 ohms? Thanks in advance.

Old Holden oil change. How often?

At the moment, my HT V8 is no longer a daily driver. I usually change it every 5000 Miles. But these days, fact is , its lucky to see 5000 miles in 2 years.
Question is should i change it at 5000 miles or maybe once a year? even though the mileage isnt up or more often? The oil is clear and im sure its still good but just wanted to know expert thoughts. For the record I use the penrite HPR 30 20w-60. The engine was rebuilt 3 years ago so it's nice and tight.
Your thoughts appreciated,
Alby

Lens paint

Just repainted my drivers side rear blinker lens, I did the passenger side a while back & it has held up pretty good.
I used a model car lens paint, I brush it on & you need to be slow & it go's on streaky & probably work better with a hobby spray gun.

Which Alternator HT v8?

took my alternator in to the auto electricians to replace. Apparently they don't just bolt in anymore. Mine is an old style with the pronged plastic pin at the top with an external regulator and will need some wiring done because the new ones only have an internal regulator. I don't know electric stuff but just wanted to know is the the best way these days? Apparently better and more reliable. They don't rebuild them anymore apparently

Not Holden but a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

My boss has a 4yo Mazda CX5 diesel with 115000 on the clock, it went into limp mode & within a few hundred metres it had started crapping itself & pretty much gave up the goast.
He contacted Mazda & arranged for it to be dropped off at a local dealer, upon dropping off the car the Manager that had spoken to had admitted that were aware of an issue regarding the "oil pump" being faulty & cloggs up depriving the engine of oil pressure.

FJ service information

Hi Guys,

Im not a car guy..I build and fly recreational aircraft. So I guess, I know how to use tools, and are quite competent with maintaining two aircraft myself. etc.

I need some info or help with an FJ.

So can some one point me in the right direction to drop the oil and service an old FJ business sedan. I believe the car has no oil filter..is that right..? and an oil bath air filter(something I know nothing about).

The car is in good condition and had a ground up resto about 12 years ago...and has been driven about 5000 miles in that time.

UC starfire 4 stall problems

Hi. Have a UC sunbird. Have just spend $1000s on it mechanically and body and interior are spec. Does well driving initially but after time (or when to come home) it can just stall when slowing at traffic lights or even to turn corner. It’s an auto. Is it possible this could be a fuel filter problem? Carby was reco’d only 500kms ago as it had bad fuel at some point. The fuel tank has also recently been drained and removed for rust/paint work. It’s like it just runs out of petrol but has full tank??
