Re: Spindle flex under cornering....beware!

Apologies for the very slow reply, it's been while since I was on the forum. It's been a while and I'm not as involved in the club as I was. The spacers were reported to be a definite improvement but I'm afraid I can't provide much more detail. I know the mechanic that installed them didn't enjoy th...

Re: Jeroen stelt zich voor.

Welcome to the forum Jeroen. You have a great looking GTV6. Unfortunately I can't speak Dutch so I can only look at your photos. Would you mind posting in English?

Re: Adding Material To The Inlet Ports????

The company I work for make 120hp/litre aircooled motorcycle engines. They've used epoxy, Devcon I think, in the inlet ports without problem

Re: Strange failure on 12v 3.0...

Wow, that's some serious wear. I would never have thought something like that would happen. Must have been loose for a long time.

Cheers, Scott.

Re: Strange failure on 12v 3.0...

What exactly went wrong? If the auxiliary shaft pulley was loose wouldn't that only affect the ignition timing? Obviously not because you bent some valves, but what happened?

Hi Kevin. If you've got the graphs that's great, if you don't, no big deal.

Re: new type tensioner

I rebuilt my hydraulic tensioner in my daily driver over 5 years ago and it doesn't leak although it is starting to look a little damp. Success of the rebuild relies on condition of the parts.

Re: Vortech Supercharged 75 Potenziata

Looking good Duk. In a post on the AROCA board you said you were making up another pair of extractors with smaller and shorter primaries. What's your thinking?

Also, what are the spacers under the top balljoint for?

Keep it up!

Re: The Orange Cab -MD's New Racer

Great work MD. Thanks for documenting it for us. Speaking of documentation, did you happen to record the diameter you ended up pressing the bottom ball joint into? I think you said you tried a couple of diameters so the joint didn't deform and end up stiff?

Cheers, Scott

Re: Exhaust valves

You could convert to 8mm or 5/16" stems and then getting guides to suit. 9mm Is a strange size that's for sure. There might be a little machine work involved if you can't find some with the groove in the right place though.
