A 6” tek-screw might find the window glass.

Re: FB Standard Wagon

The cam isn’t really lumping too hard at idle but it idles nicely, so it is very clear there is a long way to go to get the tune perfect. Pull the idle back to factory, and that cam will lope... like this :D 7mT4srVXbkg Lumpier than grandma's custard. Sounds cool, but by the time you spin the thing...

Re: Red Rattler Revamp

Went to fit it up , gave meself an uppercut and made another one - forgot that the top needs to be drilled and tapped not clearance holes I would have spent at least 20 minutes wondering if I could bodgy up that top hole with a Helicoil before I spent 10 minutes drilling another bit of iron. Cheers...

Re: FB Standard Wagon

Pump shot is tuneable to some extent using the three pump arm holes. When you rev the throttle, does it: a) miss, then catch up again (too little pump shot) b) bog down and poof black smoke (unlikely - too much pump shot) If the answer to these is no, I'd be happy with the pump stroke. The Clive 82 ...

Re: FB Standard Wagon

Good to see you back Drew. A few of us have spent time in a similar black hole, but tried to tough it out. Too embarrassed to ask for help. Figured everyone on tv, movies and the internet had perfect lives, and that we were alone. Mates like those on the forum make a big difference. Don’t listen to ...

Re: Dr Blacky attempts to perform an addagruntome

I’ve got a set of reground-by-Clive lifters I can do on changeover basis for you (mail ‘em to you March 4th, get Clive Cams to mail yours to me once they are done) if it helps. Could do the same with the cam, but it may be a bit odd for what you are doing… it’s ground using two different profiles fo...

Re: Project 2.

I had to sign a disclaimer that had the maximum shaft rpm listed. I didn't have to sign a disclaimer, but am praying this thing does not deform in the FED. It sits between the legs about mid-calf for the driver :wtf: . Has to have a minimum 1/8" thick steel plate cover around it, connected bac...

Re: Clay’s Wedgewood Blue FB Ute

Mebbe me, and I could be wrong. Modern fuel (post-unleaded) makes a tan deposit on Aussie cars running 50-0s-70s carbs. Often black/oily from seals an rings. White is unusual..

Again, could be very wrong. Have not tested a “white” set of plugs against a fuel ratio meter.
