    Took this for a fang, not bad. Gave myself some scares/jobs with things fouling on others haha. Motor does however stutter under load/mostly-wide open throttle ie booting it, sometimes popping out the carb. Timing measures up legit by the manual, but maybe the mark is off? Any thoughts?

    Shit's in and runs! Vital Fluids for motor and box gobbled up and stayed inside, yay. Kiwi Engineering fixed the ring gear, Colliers (both in Levin) checked the balance, all G. Got choke bits from Weber Specialties and other stuff from around the place. Road test yet to happen, exhaust currently sitting on the ground etc. Wagnats coming up awfully fast.. Should have taken a before Pic, it was haggard in a few places
  7. Yeah power file has changed my life. Also guilty of nipping it up in the vice for mini linisher duties. Handy having a round end, flat sections, and sections with no plate under them to run over/in curves etc
  8. Yep, just dealt with this the other day wouldn't think it's a big deal but then

    A bit closer, turns out replacement flex plate was incorrect so current one is off to get fixed up. Boring falcon info to follow: flex plate appears to be a Windsor v8 part with counterweights drilled off to become 'neutral' balance to suit the 6cyl. Apparently it's a thing, as the 6s are more likely to have borg Warner transmissions that have different mounting holes and offset in the flex plate, but the fantastic Windsor engine got the c4 and shares the same offset, tooth count and crank mounting with the 250 I6.
