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.

rebuilding fuel pump

Hi people.
I am overhauling my glass bowl fuel pump on 186 HG.
I have a kit and have read the holdenpaedia page. http://holdenpaedia....
can someone please tell me if the thread tape for the bolts and fuel line is just plumbing tape or something special.
should there be some kind of loctite on the bolts?
should there be gasket sealer on the main mounting to the block?
thanks

VB SLE 308 310 Pack

I just bought a VB SLE 308
I was advertised as a 310 Pack

It does not have the vehicle IT Tags

No Tag on left strut bar.

I have a feeling this is not a real 310 Pack

Also car has a choke which is disconnected, is it correct that only 6 cylinders have a choke?

As per the roadworthy

VIN is AVB0248895

Engine number is VT 41275

I have a bad feeling that this is a SLE V6 converted to a V8
