    Cheers Jeff. Never have the bonnet resting on the bonnet stand if the bonnet is not attached to the hinges. It also put a dent in the gaurd, damaged the sheet metal where the bonnet stand attaches to the bonnet and, due to my temper, I managed to fracture a bone in my hand... again.

    Its all green now. Unfortunatley we managed to crack the brand new windscreen with the bonnet. Not much will be happening with the Satnza as I have to get the 200B SSS coupe back together and ready for sale.

    More paint.
  4. To my knowledge "0" timing is at top dead centre, however on my L16 (Stanza) TDC appears to be at "10" advanced. The piston just starts the down stroke at "0". The pully is correctly located on the key, the timing marks on the tag (off the bloke) look good and so does the mark on the pully. Could I possibley have the wrong pully or timing tag?

    Finally got back into it, got it ready for paint but had trouble getting the actual colour. Its could Limelight Green, its an Australian Chysler colour BUT is now listed as a Mitsubishi colour as Mitsubishi took over the Valiant factory in Tonsley Park, South Australia when Chysler stopped making cars in this country. We were going to go with Blonde Olive (another Valiant Colour) but given these thing dont have much in the way of safety optioned we decided a seen car is a safer car. Hanging panels are next.

    How much power gain do you get with a single weber on a stock l16 (assuming that its stock)? I love your Stanza, makes mine look not so clean.

    The love is strong, how can one not love them. The 200B is in a long list of projects... Finally finished (enough to reg) the Pumkin Toyota T18 I've now got to do: The Stanza Chrysler ute Daisy the Dodge The Charger 200B Coupe Plus friends cars as they come in. You may be horrified to know that the plan for the 200B is to make it a 348 MoPar powered drag car with the strict rule that all parts are to be plug and play, NO cutting. The car must be able to be returned to original condition. That said, its a long way off. P.S Keys will be in the mail next week.

    Nice work on the booster. Don't do what I've done... get the booster all pretty just to have a major fluid splash back ruin all the work.
  13. As the pic shows, the drum hub and the wheel hub are different sizes, no snug fit and therefore no real support. Is this normal for a Stanza or am I missing something here?

    Cheers mr200b. Gotta say I'm a fan of the 200B, especially the SSS variaty. I will have to start a write up on mine soon... though I have other cars to finish first. Finally it feels like i;m getting somewhere. Most of the paint is gone. Soon the body will have some KBS and primer on.
