Yep Comp cams 12-210-2

Not a beast cam. But livens the old girl up. I'm sure with some good diff gears a manual gearbox and maybe more cam the thing would be an absolute weapon with those trickflow heads.
I'm still happy with how it performs but.
It was scary as hell standing in front of the dyno with the guy hitting full noise. I have some video on my instagram page if anyone is interested in having a gander. Frothy_mcchops is the profile. Not hard to find.

Really nice job!
My Dad had a New Belair from Stacks in Sydney.
Still have it down on the farm but a tree fell on the back window. Someday .....
Cheers,
John

Hey Chris.
I'm an electrician by trade so decided to just rewire things myself. The wiring diagrams aren't exactly as per the manuals for our rhd cars but they're close. I did get some new firewall connectors I need to replace one of these days. They're different to the yank bulkhead connectors or plugs I think. But I got those through summit who sell American auto wire stuff. There really isn't much as far as electrics in these old cars. Maybe if I got a decked out impala with all the bells and whistles I'd be scratching my head. But not my old Belair. Basic as it comes.

Mines Is very basic also. On my list of things to do one day is rewiring. Im a comms tech, so wiring doesn’t faze me either. Was thinking of getting a universal kit. Not sure yet.

Also where did you get the grommet for the accelerator linkage where it goes through the firewall you?? I have just a hole and would like to plug it up without affecting the accelerator linkage/ pedal

Most of those grommets are specific to our cars. Nothing like the left hook cars. Most of the firewall grommets I made from generic grommets and other stuff. Sounds funny but for instance, the steering column grommet you'll never find so I got my old one used the base part that has a metal frame inside it , super glued a sheet of rubber to that then sanded it to shape thennnnnnn believe it or not I used a 50mm concertina type grommet glued to that where the column goes through it. I bought that from the toilet section at bunnings but yeh I can take pics of specific grommets if you wish. Not blowing my own horn but you'd never know they weren't factory.
The accelerator one from memory was just from Clark rubber that I put a nice little hole in for the linkage to travel through.

Cool, nothing like a bit of Aussie ingenuity!! Thought I’d have to improvise.
