Re: Engine coolant mostly gone

Just to clarify. A radiator leak down test (as opposed to a cylinder leak down) is where you place a pressure gauge on the radiator. It is fitted onto it in place of the cap. It is a composite device that incorporates an air pump and gauge. Normal operating pressure is applied to the system and allo...

Re: Engine coolant mostly gone

Sheit milky oil is not a good sign. Obviously if the majority of the coolant is gone, it would be a problem with a low part of the engine. On the other hand if some oil has got into the oil and you are experiencing a "steaming" exhaust with a hot engine and the leak down test on you radiator is not ...

Re: rs crossmember nuts

I take it that you are referring to the lower control arm bolts and nuts. If that is the case, and there is any doubt about the condition of the threads, you would be advised to obtain a complete new set of high tensile bolts and nuts. My preference is to buy the bolts a bit longer to enable "double...

Re: Cold Air Intake

Have a close look at the 75 air cleaner. It may fit and all it would need is a more closer coupling of the inlet to the area in front of the radiator.

Re: Clutch spline count and shaft Dia?

Hey Greaser,
many of which have considerably more than 260-280ftlbs torque
. Is that twisting the truth just a little ? Chuckle, tee hee, snigger snigger, hhaaahhha.

Re: Which would you choose and why?

Yeah, reality checks are always a bummer but here are some real life examples. Got a friend with a 420hp turbo TS powered 75 street sedan. His words : "Mostly undrivable./unusable power". In my own case, my racer only makes around 220 hp with about 200ftlbs torque. In less than a year on the track i...

Re: Which would you choose and why?

With 350bhp and torque to match, be sure to have a garage shelf full of replacement gearboxes-mostly the crown and pinions. We are talking street cars here and a lot of daily driving. That transaxle isn't going to take it too long. The question has to be asked. What is it that you want ? A cruiser? ...

He was posting late July this year so he is definitely still there.

Still circulating occasionally. Possibly going to do some mods on it during the year but more likely next year.

Re: Project 2 : front mount SA GTV 3.0 - Sei diff

Hi Kevin, Devcon is great stuff and I have used it in many applications. However my choice here would be to weld it as per video. There is not better repair than that. I would not trust Devcon in the long run for this job. Last thing you need on the track is having coolant problems. By all means pos...
