    • Mmmmm I can smell the burning
    • what is a good brand of normal ball joints
    • had some more progress - car still runs!  sound deadening every where was done - carpet installed, seats installed (LAST TIME! )  gas tank mounted - how do you mount a 200L gas tank you say ? use a hoist and ratchet straps like a boss  Dean came over and gave a hand - we also discovered a good invention - when installing new carpet and you want to make seat bolt holes? use copper heated up , pressed down makes a perfect hole!   
    • Hello all, I’m not sure if this is the right place for this question so if not, admin please point me to the right forum and I apologize in advance. I’ve got a stock 250 crossflow in my (older) jet boat and would like a bit more power. The engine is from an 85 falcon I think, and has a C2 head and Weber carb. It tops out at 3950 rpm which I am guessing is around 130hp on my impellers (2 stage HamiltonJet 752 with 19 degree bullet front and 17 degree rear).  I really want a bit more zip, and would like to get to 4350 rpm, or even 4500.  That would require 177hp or 195 hp respectively ( jet power is proportional to the cube of the engine speed). So I need a high torque engine. The engine will never see 5000 rpm - that’s almost 270hp on my pump. Is this economically viable ( I’d like to keep to around $2k in parts)? Can I get there with a cam swap, and sundry parts? Do I need a new inlet manifold, and if so, should I go to a 4 barrel carby (450 Holley or similar)? One key restriction is I am keeping my log style water cooled exhaust manifold, so extractors are not an option.  My other plan is to drop in an used AU or XR6 engine as I can pick one of them up for about $1000nzd here in the South Island of NZ and reuse the exhaust manifold but I’m not too keen on playing with or remapping ECU to be honest, or messing with drive by wire conversion on the electronic engine.  But I know it can be done, and the XR6 is a good engine, but that’s not my desired path. I’d prefer to warm up the crossie as it is a good, relatively light engine. I’ll add some pictures tomorrow when I figure out how to post them. Thanks in advance for any ideas or feedback. regards Rich

    • Soooo the ute hasnt seen much love in the last 18 months and I think its time that changed. HO Phase autos finally have their millennium front bars available via Alpha fibreglass. So before the old girl goes in for a tart up at the panel shop Id better pull my finger out and finish all the little things like AC and power mirrors. I have a good excuse for forgetting the XG early last year I picked myself up a pretty nice 06 BF Tornado and thats off at the painters getting tarted up (get it back this week)! Quick question do my Photobucket photos still work?
    • I get it all from the local brake shop I worked for yrs ago that still does the old school work unlike some of the new ones around
