OK, what am I doing wrong?

Timing on 253 HJ Tonner, thought I was setting timing at factory spec of 6° BTDC (see picture) but when running and using a timing light, big surprise, was at about 24° BTDC! What the... Where did I go wrong?

Here's how I did it:

308 and 253 trimatics

Hi guys i have a 308 and a 253 trimatic with gearboxes, just wondering what they might be worth. Not sure if there running or not.

Also would it be worth getting them re drilled to fit a turbo patten. if so what sort of cost would i be looking at and where would be a good place to take them in Melbourne South east suburbs or along mornington peninsula to have it done. So from Dandnong to Frankston.

Thanks again

VS Commodore Fuel problems

Hi Guys i have a VS Commodore duel fuel daily driver. I run it mostly on gas but from time to time a switch it over to petrol. Yesterday morning i switch it over only to have it conk out on me.

I have 3/4 of a tank of petrol in there so i know its not empty unless my gauge is faulty which i dont think it is because i use the same gauge for the gas as well.

I have checked the fuses but still no luck. Just wondering if it might be the fuel pump.

Stroker

Hi guys i have just been given a two 308 with gearboxes that have been sitting for a long time. I know one come out of a HQ 1tonner the other not sure on also not sure if there are running or not either.

Thinking of pulling them down cleaning them up and maybe get a stoker kit to put in at least one of them.

Is there much demand for this sort of setup or are people going for a small block chevs or a VN to VT 304 style with a stroker kits now days.

Have nothing to put it in. Would mainly be a talking point in the man cave or something like that.

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 :(

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.
