Sorry for taking so long to reply, I've been away working. It's a Nov '86 build, so not a "series 2" (not that series 2 ever existed, lol). I don't know what to do with it, it needs some work and is half the old man's. He told me what he reckons to put on it but I know we won't sell it for that without doing more work. Running great still, although it's got a little bit of lifter noise on the left head, just clocked over 300k too.
Paid 3k for it, spent about as much on it to date, although it doesn't really show. Owes us nothing so will probably just let it sit there and see what happens as far as doing it up. Money is the biggest demotivator at the moment, can't afford to do anything to it.

My wishlist:
Full respray (needs it). Or at least the bottom first and top later.
Engine rebuild with some minor mods, nothing too stupid.
Full gas conversion

I reckon 10-15k to do what I want, can't see the funds being available too soon.

Any decent carby tuners in town? Car needs it after I replaced the manifold, idle is a bit high and the throttle needs adjusting.

Thanks. Last time it was done was by a guy in Broadmeadow, John Collins I think. Did a good job, just seeing who else to get quotes from. Not many around that have decent knowledge of the old carby V8's. It's also had the exhaust done since it's last tune so should see a decent improvement with a good tune.

Not a bad link, worth thinking about.
