2 barrel stromberg

G'day Folks,

Has anyone fitted a 2 barrel stromberg from a 253 onto a red 202?

When setting the carby up, are there any significant changes that need to be done to suit the six? ie mixture, jet size etc

The intended six will have extractors, 2in exhaust, minor porting/polish, baby cam, and be running on 98 octane.

Also does anyone know of any carby places in SA which can perform overhauls on this carby or sell an already recon one?

Commodore rally car - Which diff?

Hi,

I have a VC commodore rally car. Yella terra head, mild cam (2000-5000rpm), celica gearbox, etc.

I am now looking at which diff to run. Options are:

1/Keep the banjo and get an LSD center. Possibly the cheapest but strong?

2/VL turbo LSD? Pricey? Heavy?

3/Borg warner from VN on (cut to size?)? Pricey?

4/Any other options?

Problems inlcude which brakes/master cyl as I need rear brake bias. I now get that from modified master cylinder with drum brakes (HQ racing linings work quite well provided the drums are adjusted every 200km).
