X2 carb's

Gidday Guys,

I will be fitting the X2 carbie set up to my EH ute this comimg weekend and I have a question Do I need to run a vacuum line from each carb and then Tee into the distributor? Or can I block the port on one carb and run a single line from the other carb? Shouldn't the vacuum be the same in one carb as in two? Any info greatly appreciated.
Thanks Geoff

Some Interesting Monaro Information.

Here is some interesting info i got recently, from none other than Warren Turnbull, Author of 'The Monaro Story'. Thought i might share it with you guys. :)

From: "warrenturnbull"
Subject: [MONARO CLUB] Re: Numbers of High End Monaro's?

Well Trevor there are a lot of numbers out there that are in fact
wrong.

An example of this is the HK Monaro number of 8945. This number is
the "official" number from GMH. But we also know, because they
numbered them, that Sydney and Adelaide made more than this number
between them. Norm Darwin had the right number at 15637.

Just Wondering if anyone knows if the "warmaride" heater in the HR is the same as the EH? I know that the switch is different looking to the HR?

Thanks..

Holden Prototypes

I will have in my possesion as of Monday exclusive images of Holden prototypes.
These images will be posted here EXCULUSIVE to Oldholden.

Some you may have seen others I know for sure you have not and most likely never would.

I would like the people in this forum to never reproduce these images.

In fact if I can't get assurance from Rusty that the images cannot be protected,some will not be posted period.

Images that I know of are

VY Sandman panel van
VY Sandman ute
Jackaroo 5.7 liter V8 2 door convertible.
SSX

and quite a few others I am not at liberty to disclose as yet.

decoding '79 HZ VIN

Hi again, thanks for the help before with the door trim, i got it off and replaced the lock and now it works a treat.
my old HZ came with the original owners manual (and order sheet for the tasmanian police)
so i looked at the VIN number on the car, and tried to decipher it using the guide in the manual, but all the letter and numbers are in different places than in the guide, i.e
my car's VIN: H 486575 B
example VIN for the deciphering thing: 8N69TFJ500025Z

so what does this mean?
also, the VIN on the order sheet is the same as the one on my car, but the last digit on the car is a Z, instead of a B, which it is on the order sheet.

Engine mods and passing pits

Hello all,
I have 2 questions for you. My engine goes into the mechanics on monday to start getting rebuilt. Now the guy who im taking it to said to change my crank and rods and take the 327 out to a 350. What do you people think of the idea. do i stay with the 327 or go the 350.
My other question is for the guys based in perth. Dave might know as he is doing a lot of mods on his car at the moment but if anyone else can answer i would appreciate it. I was just on the website for the dpi (department for planning and infrastructure) and found a pdf file to download. Its 9 pages. It is a "Vehicle Modification Application for production vehicles". Just wondering if this does have to be filled out. Im looking at calling up pits this week but just thought i would ask here first. Last time i called pits was approx 6-8 months ago and they never mentioned any application forms. It goes into so much detail even as far have the original seats been changed raised lowered etc and please explain why these changes occurred. Bloody hell. Any info would be great.
