Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Back on topic and more good news. 75 Evo located some couplings and bolts ASAP. Thanks good buddy. I asked him to hold off until I have a last minute door knock around here mainly due to current exchange rates and US postal charges. Luckily I managed hold up Richard Andersen from Avanti Spares by th...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Good news. Got a replacement for the chain sprocket drive. I will install this once I get around to dismantling the engine. As you can see it has the cure-a keyway !!

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Well my situation is a lot simpler and it pertains to two exact same situations and only ever involving the 8v Alfa twin spark engines. One was a 200hp NA engine and the present one a supercharged one. Both developed this exact same problem due to the movement of the chain sprocket on the shaft caus...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

I can't make up my mind where to put this info. Does it warrant a topic of it own, dunno. I seem to be plagued by engineering shop shortcomings and now out of the blue, I have an engine failure in the Orange Cab, Alfetta GT. It uses a twin Spark engine that seems to have an inherent fault that other...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Good work 75 EVO. Keep this up and my Dutch connection is going to have to hand over the prized ferret guernsey for sourcing parts !! :D :D Mate, that email is melting internet submarine cables on its way to your pad while you are reading this. To put the brakes on the run of date rolls, the governm...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Thanks fellas. Just my luck. The price of AUD is getting near half it value just a week ago. Crazy times. Cannot say I disagree with you Jim. If I had lathe, I would do it myself. Actually one of the hardest things I have to face locally is the lack of small machine shop businesses. Everybody has go...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hahahaa funny shit guys. I think I have missed my opportunity to write a unique book. I was thinking of giving it an interesting title. Something like, "Arseholes I've Met and Quantum Verbal Diarrhoea" A challenging concept to get your head around but it has a definite ring to it no matter how brown...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Yo Kevin, I originally intended to install this engine with modified specs to do the job. Wasn't meant to be. In the present after market ECU climate basically cannot accommodate it economically for a privateer. So I am moving onto some old school technology. For now I am sitting on the fence about ...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

The bloke who owned this engine in the original donor car needs a pull though with brick. Totally clueless about changing the oil and using engine flush. If this poor engine didn't get a broken head gasket the idiot would have driven it for the next 400 000km on the original oil. Unbelievable ! Chec...
