    The change over date isn't a calendar date it's the model year which starts late the year before. The F prefix would have started later in 75 so would likely be correct for 9/75.

    I know of BB Chev in a HQ that makes around 800HP with that set up and it does a lot of trouble free street miles. If I was going an electric water pump that's the exact set up I'd use.

    OK, Thanks. I think I'll take it for a drive to get some more temp in it and I'll check the pressures again when it's at full operating temp.

    I'm not sure on the internals, I bought it as a good second hand box. It's been in the car for around 11 years without issue until the problem started intermittently a couple of years ago and lately...

    So I checked the pressures today, I'm not in a position to drive it at the moment so I have it up on stands and let it idle in low while the engine warmed up so I could get a little temp in the...

    If I'm understanding you correctly, the "locking plate" needs to have a taper so that it moves when the bonnet is closed. I have experienced the same thing before (needing to pull cable to close) and...

    What was the cause? I have something weird going on with top gear and I'm probably going to pull it out and have a go at a rebuild myself.

    Can say I've ever tried it but I can't see any reason why the door trim shouldn't come off with the window up. Remove arm rest, handles, etc. Starting at the bottom and then up each side, pull the...

    It could be, I thought T700 being the original VN-VP 304 gearbox.

    I still think the fact he mentions Trimatic in the title and that the cable is too short to reach the carb means he has a rare HG...

    I would have guessed he's talking about a T700 & had removed the bunch of bananas and fitted a carb? but the mention of the cable being too short sounds more like a Trimatic cable than a T700 one,...

    That sounds a bit like what MSD call "soft touch". It doesn't just cut all cylinders at once, it drops a couple at a time and brings them back while dropping different cylinders. At least that's the...

    From what I understand the issue with bog on bare metal is usually when it's over a repair. Filler is hygroscopic (absorbs moisture) and if there is any pin holes in the welds it can pull moisture...

    Those block offs are hit and miss, we used to used them back in the day when we knew no better and you always had to carry a spare. These days I do what RedTaxi has suggested above.

    Apart from "pig rooting" at the lights it drives like a normal car, I've driven it to work (~30km each way) on the odd occasion without any issues.

    This is the only cam I've had with the VN heads so don't really have a fair comparison. I previously had a hyd FT with the early heads that was on 110, the 106 is a SFT. Oddly enough both combos had...

    The reason 1:1 works with EFI is because it's not relying on the incoming airflow to pull fuel into the intake. That's not to say it won't work with a carb, it just might need a bit of tweaking to...

    That's not really true, some of the more desirable US muscle goes for insane prices. "Collectors" are all around the world paying silly money for their "investments"
