202 red Motor dies when I put the throttle on

Hey having a pretty hard time working out what's wrong with my hq ute...
I had it sit for a while when I did some painting and rust work, it ran fine before that.
But now the revs just climb up and down when idling and if I pull the throttle on it dies?
I've put a reconditioned carby on, new head and manifolds gaskets, checked the fuel pump, checked the point gaps, it's got plenty of fuel.
Anyone had a similar issue? I'm all out of ideas on how to fix this one... I jut want to drive my old ute again :(

Engine block

Gday all.
I'm on the scrounge for an engine block (bare) anything from 149 - 202.
Only need a non runner for a mock-up so split bore / broken casting / extra ventilation is fine.

Any one got taking up space in the shed?

Lost

Hey guys n gals.

Im currently at a bit of a stalemate. Im currently building a VY ss ute. Which i have a twin turbo ly6 (iron ls2) 408ci (6.8lt)

I was going to put it in my ss ute once i respray it.

But im starting to lean more towards finding a hk-wb sedan or ute (not 1 tonner)

Which models would be easiest to get registered with a motor like this?

I know none of them are a peice of cake and i have an engineer involved at the moment but before i hound him with question i wanted some opinions.

is it worth it to hot up a 253?

I know you bore it out, bigger valves, lumpy cam all that sort of thing, but can you, like a 308 to 355, stroke it a bit? is it worth it to hot up a 253? AND if I did, will the motor be small enough to run a small 8 bolt salisbury diff a trimatic and a standard brake booster ... Im just throwing it out there I wouldnt mind an 8 in my commy but I if I put an 308 worked I think ill have to change too many things to accomodate the extra horses. if someone could enlighten me on the old 253 capabilities and incapabilities and what I need to change from 6cyl running gear.
