the fitting on the carb spacer is just vacuum right?
Yes the vac goes into the spacer - running premium unleaded with a little 2 stroke for the blower but not much

Very cool Rob. The torque curve is what gets my eye. You need a big period van to tow around keep you in check.

A guy in a ranger pulled up to me on way home and really wanted to get in front - I think I surprised him by not allowing that to happenImageImageImage

I was really happy with how it runs now - you can cruise around in second or top and it has no issues and no need to be up and down the gears so the combo of the 2 inch su and the maggy is just about spot on - started up super easy next morning as well with no choke needed - the power assist steering is next level great - can do a uturn in two lanes easy

Hi Wally
I am really interested in your power steering set up can you give me as much information as you can and a contact would be nice. I am running a modified torana collapsible column at the moment

It came from eZ power in uk Billy - they were great to communicate with - mine is a standard EK three on tree column and box which was a first for them so unlikely they have done a torana column but dont they already have power steering?

Axistar on the Torana forum does a power rack conversion.

Torana's don't have power steering and the conversions are normally powered racks.

Billy has a Torana column which is collapsible, so i am assuming that can be modified by this UK company ?

When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

With all due respect gpi but a standard VN V6 is 127kw which is around 170Hp so I think Wally's got a few ponies to catch up :lol: :lol: :lol:
