Hey, I have a problem. I can't open the drivers door of my WB from the outside..the mechanism won't seem to work. The inside handle will work and I can unlock and lock the dor Has anyone ever had this before?? How can I fix it? Does spraying some CRC on the mechanism work??

missing

Hi all.
Just after some advice, my 308 misses severely when the timing is set correctly but is smooth with timing advanced approximately 36 degrees. I have replaced dizzy cap rotor button all leads all plugs and coil. it has been checked for any stuck valves and all mechanics agree it is an ignition problem not fuel. Also i have replaced the module on the dizzy.
Any Ideas.
Thanks in advance

Lumpy Gas

Hi,
Can anyone help ?, my duel fuel 253 runs fine on petrol but on gas it is erratic, will start fine but cut out several times till warm then run OK while moving but stall at junctions, lights etc, (always restarts ! ). When hot idle is lumpy and take off a bit shaky, will run a hundred klicks no worries then stall at end ??, This is my first gas vehicle after driving and maintaining for 30 years and I know nothing of maintaining a gas set up.

Clutches for 6cyl's

Can any tell me the diamiter of a standard 6cyl clutch and a one-tonner 6cyl clutch and pressure plate? I just bought a 6 spring WB one-tonner clutch to fit to my HJ one-tonner using a UC torana cable operated bell housing. Now problem is, the pressure plate, is too big for the flywheel I have (Pressure plate to flywheel bolt spacing). I have two flywheels, both are part numbers 7420116 (and most likely originally out of torana's).

engine kept running

hey folks,
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me why....after taking my VL V8 for a drive the other day once I switched the key off the engine kept running for a second or two then cut out?
anyone had this happen before?
I'm guessing it's a minor and common problem

Nuggy's brokem brakes

Hi Nuggy,

I figured we should start our own thread rather than continue hijacking someone else's...

If it doesn't pull to one side under light braking, that would tend to lessen the chances of it being adjustment or heavy contamination of the shoes...it won't rule them out, just makes it less likely that they're the cause.

They should have checked your front wheel bearings when they did the alignment, so that is less likely to be the cause too but it could still contribute.

crook carb ???

hey guys, my car has been stalling lately, like the engine is getting too much air, or not enough gas. it only seems to do it on gas, so im going to go thru the gas line and clamp up all the connectors where i can.
but i am wondering if its the actual carb itself
the primary jets are always open, ive been told they can stay open while on idle. but they stay open when i turn the car off, im sure this aint supposed to happen.

Major Flat Spot

Hello,

I own a 1978 HZ Panelvan, running a 253 with WW Stromberg Carb.

Been having lots of problems with a cold engine, recently replaced the choke coil and this has almost fixed all my problems regarding driving a cold engine.

Unfortunately however I still seem to be having trouble with take off. When stopping at the lights and applying the accellerator, both large and little amounts of accellerator, the engine seems to hesitate and after a good 3 to 6 seconds springs to life.

Rough morning idle

Recently bought at hq ute, and it's having trouble holding idle when cold, there's also alot of moisture coming out the tail pipe.
We heard about the seal on the petrol cap on some cars causing water to get in the tank and cause this exact problem.... Other solutions, air filter? or carby problem...
Any ideas before we pull it apart entirely?
