Fuel pump and Vacuum pump combined

My FC Wagon came with combined fuel/vacuum pump but now I have fitted an electric wiper set up and the vacuum side of the pump is not plumbed up or needed it makes a whistling noise which can be stopped by plugging off one of the vacuum connection points at the base of the pump. I realise I could replace pump with just a fuel pump and get away with this noise problem. Any reasons why just blocking off an actuating vacuum side of the pump would cause a problem long term.
Thoughts and ideas appreciated from those who have solved this on there cars. Thanks FC25250

Manifold for Weber 34 ADM to Red 202

G'day folks,
I've just bought a 34 ADM carb for my Red 202, which I am planning on mildly working (the common stuff like re-bore 40 thou, flat top pistons, HEI dizzy from Blue motor, mild cam and associated springs, lifters and bearings, etc...) my question is, is there a particular inlet manifold that is better than others for the Weber? Most people recommend a 350 Holley manifold like the Redline, but is there any that have better flow or other benefits that others don't have? Also are there any particular adapter plates and spacers that are recommended?
Cheers.

Rear Main Seal

Anyone had experience with the neoprene rear main seals available for the red six, blue six, and the starfire four? Are they a better option than using the standard rope seals?

Cheers, Mick.

Help on which spark plug for a red 202

I'm servicing my recently purchased HR with a red 202 (QL code block) so figured I'd just replace the spark plugs as part of that and thought it should be as easy as taking out a spark plug then buying another set of the same.

The existing plugs have carbon build up on the thread. They are NGK-BP5EFS.

I just would have thought only the head should extend into the combustion chamber and not the thread or am I wrong?

oh no

well This was the main fuse on my TPI chev, after leaving the cetec charger on for 3 weeks while at work.
Have changed the fuse and holder that looked like a over cooked snag on a BBQ lol
Battery is charged and starter motor has power to it with the multi meter at the right volts. There is power to the fuel pumps and the computer
BUT no go ? it wont turn over or even a clicking noise like they do ?

My question is, is it the ignition switch ? or something else ?
Any help would be much appreciate

308 cam timing.

Hi all,
Has anyone ever checked their 308 cam timing with degree wheel and dial gauge. I'd be interested in their findings.
I have a theory that most 308s could do with about half a tooth advance with a good timing chain, and a full tooth with a loose chain.
