Loose clearance allows faster oil flow and the heat is transferred away with a larger oil volume . Which brings us to another related discussion: what do you prefer, higher oil p...

Re: 75 Twin Spark Engine Head Removal Tool

Never going to lend me your tool? As if you can find it, hahah! Have you even figured out a use for it yet -besides trying (in vain) to pump your brains out? :oops: :lol:

Re: 75 Twin Spark Engine Head Removal Tool

If you weren't such a cheap-ass, you'd find a DECENT used TS engine to buy, instead of the crapola you got! Then, you wouldn't need them medieval bullshit puller tools! :roll: :shock: :| :wall:

Re: Larger oil cooler

I didn't hear anyone ask about bearing clearances. Its the biggest factor in oil heating.

I have to thank you for the nice words... I sure get a chuckle thinking of you wanting to be an 'organ donor' when you finally croak (hallelujah, praise the Lord!).

Thought I'd drop by here and see how you bunch of relic-hunters and gravediggers are doing. Sad to see a certain Ozzie varmint is still polluting this world's atmosphere.

Re: Engine mounts

How do you guys come up with these strange problems? Why can't the nut be tightened? Did someone elongate the slot or is the mount badly made in some way? :?

Re: Engine mounts

I fail to see the need for any special mounting arrangement. I used the std V6 mounts on my 164-based 3.2 and no problems at all. Am I missing something?

Re: Building the supercharger to the engine (75 3.0V6)

Just measured several sets of used 164 24v gaskets (all in excellent, I would even say reusable shape) and they are all 1.6-1.7mm. I have a new set of special Nava ones still sealed, advertised as 1.6mm thick.

Re: Which would you choose and why?

You can order special liners from Darton (US), Westwood Liners (UK) or Gozzoli Autotrasformazioni (Italy). State your requirement and they will use the proper material. In Italy they use 'spheroidal cast iron' as they call it. Alternatively -for a 4cyl engine- you can pay a lot more and buy a monosl...
