Re: SSL certificate for this site?

I have my own webserver now and use webmin/virtualmin to control it. Virtualmin is able to get a certificate from letsencrypt and make sure it is up to date.

Re: Building a fresh 360ci engine for mileage & power

6mm fuel line? wow I fit 10mm to all the conversions I do. I dare say it is, combined with the lockoff, a restriction to fuel flow. In my experience, road tuning, 10mm is a good size and the 2 lockoffs we use most in Australia are the next major restriction. Check the link in my signature for a litt...

Re: Convert from SU / CD Stromberg to Impco recommendations.

Hi Jono I like the SU CD type carb but I acknowledge they can be a pain if they are not looked after. I have heard of, but not seen, people feeding LPG into a SU CD type carb in a similar fashion to what is done when small generators are converted from petrol to LPG. It is something I would consider...

Re: Vff30 with ohg vacuum hookup

Do you have a copy of Franz's book? If not I suggest you get it. Do you have an electric lock off on your tank(s)? If not please fit one so that the fuel that is released by the VFF is limited to what is in the fuel lines. Please also follow Franz's suggestions (to the letter) with regards to hookin...

Re: Engine likes more advance with iridium sparkplugs...?

Aspects such as heat range can cause a change in required ignition timing. Iridium plugs run cooler than regular or even platinum plugs of the exact same design. This will probably be what you are noticing.

Re: Convert from SU / CD Stromberg to Impco recommendations.

Hi C3H8 None of these cars are typical of North American muscle cars but some variants have racing heritage and are performance vehicles despite their size. None of them are slouches, so to speak, in touring car guise, and this is why they are sought after but with the price of petrol (anywhere from...

Convert from SU / CD Stromberg to Impco recommendations.

I've been asked lately if I would convert some classic cars to LPG while keeping the original manifolds if possible. I myself have a manifold and triple 1.5" CD Stromberg carb setup off a 186 CI XU-1 Torana (classic Australian muscle car). The 202 CI version had triple 1.75" CD Strombergs. So I am w...

Re: Lean acceleration and steady speeds above 50 mph.

I used a Jaycar mixture display years ago, they aren't accurate Please check the PCM and see if it is throwing any fault codes. Lots to ponder, Jaycar unit at least confirms what I felt. Advanced the interrupter wheel 8 degrees on my VN, it went quite well, would like to give the VY more timing, in...

Re: Lean acceleration and steady speeds above 50 mph.

3.8 Ecotec. Ok Kit, fitted by a licensed mate with lots of experience, car had been back to him many times over the years, has always lacked power on Gas. After 2000 kits had to be certified for the car they are fitted to so I am assuming the correct kit was used for the car/engine combination. Mos...

Re: Lean acceleration and steady speeds above 50 mph.

Hi Tom. A couple of questions for you 1. Is this a 3.8 Ecotec V6 or a 3.6 AlloyTech V6? 2. Is this an actual kit or was it a factory LPG setup? Either way, for both questions, being a 2002 model disconnecting the Feedback control is illegal in Australia (I'm assuming you're in Australia but you may ...

Re: 93gmc 7.4 timing

That is a loaded question and there is no optimum for such a general question simply because all engines are different. If you start with 14 degrees at idle, 14 degrees centrifugal advance (CA), and 14 degrees vacuum advance (VA) you'll be able to work from there. If you want optimum get a fully adj...

Re: intake design for propan vapor injection

Normally choosing an aftermarket (performance) intake means you need to consider the operating range of the engine. While this is still true, EFI in general (and also LPG) give you alot of leeway. In general theory, and real world testing (thus the types of design oem produces), indicate long runner...

The CUCV in my sig had both 12v and 24v onboard before I swapped the diesel to a 454. A 12v and 24v system will not be the probl...
