    Haven't checked the choke break diaphragm but given the carb is effectively only a couple weeks old and it seems that the cleaner in the connector at least temporarily resolves it, I'm leaning...

    Had a similar issue with mine a while back, it was weird as it would randomly lock when the engine was already warm, you could instantly feel the drag on the motor and couldn't really ever maintain...

    Easy one this time (hopefully) :-)

    Hey guys, so over the past few months amongst a busy work schedule I have fixed a bunch of stuff and worked on the tuning of my RB30, now my Aircon is cold, my oil pressure gauge works, and I have...

    Hmm, I know that Carbie's are a low pressure arrangement, I wonder if I can get hold of a pressure gauge and check fuel pressure coming through to the carb? That would at least point to a pressure...

    Thanks mudnut, hadn't thought of the fuel pump or solenoid, the throttle response and power aren't a worry, it holds highway speed and accelerates pretty well for such a heavy vehicle. Regards the...

    Thanks, I will look over the lines, I have replaced the hoses in the engine bay, feed and return, but never know, or maybe the hoses near the tank, I will look in daylight

    Thx mate, yeah speedo is slightly out, at 100 indicated, I am travelling about 103/104, that variance shouldn't make such a big difference I'm guessing?

    If it's got a lot of Kay's on the bottom end, then seems like it would be a better (albeit a bit more expensive) idea to recon the whole engine, at least then the extra expense would see the engine...

    A couple of thoughts about the 4.8 into GQ, I noticed that GVM is only 2800kg on the RB30 powered GQ, whereas it is about 3150 or so on the 4.2, (makes sense due to the much heavier engine and...

    Hey Dom,

    From my memory (been a long while since I rebuilt an engine), a low compression reading that increases with oil being injected into the cylinder is an indication of worn piston rings....

    Hey Mudnut,

    I only ever run 98 octane unless I'm somewhere that only has normal unleaded. (In which case it will ping a bit)... Mine has never been gas converted, I've had 2 cars on gas, 1 converted and 1...

    Well I dropped past the auto shop yesterday and picked up a new timing light that actually works, unlike my old one, so have had a bit of a tinker.

    Yep, she has seen more mud, red dirt, water crossings, overgrown tracks etc in the past three years than I think she ever had in her first 21 years... Before I started running a filter on the snorkel...

    A quick bit of info for the thread, I recently changed my fan, power steering and air con belts as the old ones were looking worn. Maybe everyone else with an RB30 already knows this, but just in...

    Yeah, steel bar, with winch, and long range fuel tank too. Cargo barrier, water tank, fridge and slide etc etc etc, probably not the lightest she's ever been.

    I'm still thinking a good dyno tune...
