Re: Which would you choose and why?

I'm pretty sure we're stuck with cast iron for liners, although steel is stronger/tougher per mass, it is more elastic and certainly doesn't have the porosity needed to hold oil within the surface grain structure.

Re: Balance issues?

Hi all, an old subject I know but just a heads up! The 4 cyl cars nd v6 have a diff size input shaft sleeve. (The tube the throw out bearing slides on) so if you simply bolt a v6 clutch housing and flywheel assembly onto a twinspark g/box you'll have the larger bearing on the smaller tube. Which cau...

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

Another option for those interested in keeping the later hi output alternator is to remote mount the filter. It still means drilling and tapping the block but also means the the filter is now easily reached

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

Nice work Kevin, I've often wondered why people use the sei diff considering its weight when the Bmw option is easy to find many ratios and I'm sure would end up lighter if built well. Plus the serviceability and strength

Obviously the r...

Re: Knipex Tools

I can certainly recommend knipex, the multigrip pliers featured hear are the exact same pair I have. I'm a mechanic and have been using the same pair for 15 yrs. still going strong! You won't be disappointed. If I remeber I'll take a pic of the jaws on mine after a solid 15yrs of daily use from just...

Hi Scott, just bumping this thread. Interested to hear about the results of the bearing spacers. Did they have any effect on spindle flex?

Re: Inlet Manifold Design

The 360 has long runners, short runners and a valve between the two plenums that either joins the Two to make 1 large plenum or when closed keeps them separated.

Re: Ackerman Angle

As noted the upper and lower ball joints aren't in a direct vertical line, to determine Ackerman you use the imaginary line between the upper and lower ball joint. Level horizontally with the steering ball joint.
Just curious, what sort of Ackerman figure are you aiming for?
