If you put the 92 heads on the 76 block you can use the EFI, no worries, everything else is the same

The 76 is a 2 piece rear seal, the 92 is 1 piece.,. so the flex plates are a different diameter and crank bore size.,. use the 76 style flex plate.

Hi Peter,
Getting cold up your way yet?
Stay safe and good to see you on deck.

Cold at night but still warm during the day.,. the rainy season is about to start on the West coast.
Hope you're doing well and hanging in there bud.

Thanks Peter,
  I coughed a small clot of claret today.
  ZZ4 is driving me nuts with vacuum leak
  under carby 2&4 cyl areas. replaced gasket
  std with Permatex both sides. Goes like
  there's no tomorrow when cold but when hot
  and idling in traffis or shopping centres
  it cuts out at times with even light take off.
    Tried Ether start and that showed the guilty
  base vacuum with fast pick up as long as the
  spray lasted.
   Cannot afford more dramas but do not exceed
  7 miles a day and know what to and when.
   This was caused by cheapo modules causing backfires
  and suspect very slight warp at carby base.
    I am that weak I cannot lift spare tyre at times.
 
  My apologies for gate crashing the post.
  Thought 4 today...DO NOT get Old!!!   Noel in Australia.
