Put a plug in it !!

G'Day All

Can any whizzer out there recommend the right spark plug to use in my recently acquired HZ, it's 253 Trimatic, no mods except for duel fuel, no LPG available locally so only running approx 50% of time on LPG and does a lot of short trips ( less than 5klms )in 50&60 KPH zones in hilly area.

lookin' out for guidance,
Kev

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?

Holley on a 202?

Anyone able to give me advice on the best carby mods for my car, im thinking of a holley because i dont like the varajet carby, and everone i speak to sais the same thing, the other options i have are an earlier stromberg, but i dont know if that will pass emission laws, or a webber of an xe falcon can aparently be fitted fairly easily.

any advice please email me bilbs_man@msn.com

rover v8 in FX

I'm thinking of putting a rover v8 in my FX, it hasnt got the original engine in it anyway so i've decided not to do a full original but rather a neat car with updated running gear. I know its not a Holden engine but it is all alloy which reduces weight from the original by 50 kg, has a sweet torque and power curve (thats why they use them in the rover 4wd's) has great power potential and are available pretty cheap second hand. I also think its a bit different to the v6 conversions and it'll sound a whole lot hornier. I'm expecting a lot of s#%& from the original owners but it sounds good to me. please post your comments.

186S problems

Finally picked up my 186S carb from the Carburettor Cervice Centre on Parramatta Rd, mounted it etc and tuned it up to find the following problems:

first 2% of accelerator depression causes engine to miss/splutter[starve?], next 40-60% causes awesome smooth power increase [nice!] final depression causes flat-spot in performance - no longer has that "urge" to pull, like it is flooding mildly.
