Well guys in between the rain the following has been achieved.
The fuel pump has been fiited along with the 600 holly, This thing has got 68 jets in the primary, so she is a bit rich at the momant. It starts first hit & idles nice as long as it connected to a jerry can. HA HA. Thats right the fuel tank i got out of a ZJ fairlane is not only deeper, but also longer.
So gotta pick up an Xd sedan tank this weekend.
Then its gotta have camber kit fitted, & hopfully I wil be able to pick up some BFG T/A's from the tyre shack at Nowra.
Sorry i havn't been to friday night meets for a while, but with the Ghia pulled apart i dont wanna leave the missus with out a car in her currrent condition (26weeks in!!)
Cheers Stu

Over halfway now hey Daddy. So its been 27weeks since you last got some :lol:
Looking forward to hearing the old girl coming up the street when you drop over instead of the Suzuki Vacuum Cleaner! I will most likely be without a car this Friday night as well. Might have to hitch hike!

Well guys, The Ghia get its wheel alingment tomorrow, then just needs a good clean up.
The missus went to rocket today while i was at work & picked me up a nice selection of holly jets.
Screwed some 63's into it & set the float levels. Starts & runs pretty good.
Probly some room to improve, with 64 or 65 jets, but it runs good enough to get it down to the allingment joint after changing camber pins & fitting brand nee BFG's
Probly have it out Saturday night.

Sounds like you are having a couple of wins there dude.
Are you going to need to do the power valve as well do you reckon?

Got the wheel allingment done. ( Thanks heaps to the guys at Bob Jane Penrith. They always look after you!! ) Took the old girl up to katoomba tonight. I think the float is slightly too high.
I'll give it a good polish up through the week. Ill be down at the meet friday night.
Cheers :D
