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

Software issues aside, you may have another simple problem such as intermittent make & break episodes in a slightly defective loom. Even the connector from the sensor to the loom can get very contaminated and cause resistance based voltage drops. Remembering that the output of the sensor would be in...

Is it possible that you may have a loose front pulley?

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

I must say, she did have warm hands..good one Kevin. :D Working on the Cab today, had to remove the twin spark head. The actual head removal part took about 10 minutes. The last time the head was off, I took the trouble to have the passages that the head studs move through reamed out a little togeth...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

The engine is moving along slowly and its make up will be determined to an extent on what parts I can still get for it. Meantime working at the other end of the business and installing the rear assembly in one go. After this and while I am waiting on parts, I am moving onto repairing the CAB. It's i...

Just taken all the parts to an engineering shop for some detail prep work on the components.The block needs a thorough internal clean up to check the O ring seats for the liners....

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

EUREKA ,it's OFF !! After 4 days of struggle with that darn head it is finally off the block. It took the use of a double puller system to force the head off plus using some drastic stuff like mild phosphoric acid in the stud wells to react with the minerals binding up the rods with the head. In th...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hi Kevin, Making incremental progress given the global slow up of everything.. anyhow I will answer your questions as you requested:- 1 Please look carefully at the hub conversion mounts. They are not the conventional spacers. The rear studs are held captive by the original hub therefor there is no ...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

As a special Easter consideration for you Big Guy, here are details of the front hubs. The reason for the long bolts at the rear is to fix the brake rotor to the rear of the hub. I was hoping to have the cylinder head off by now and it has moved about two thirds of the way off, however the rest is r...

Cheers.

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Back on engines.. Unlike the Greekster's tool, my head pushing tool seems to be working a treat. Got good separation already just after a couple of hours including set up that has left the head stud "wells" with enough recess to allow a good dose of penetrating fluid to form a reservoir. I will leav...

Re: De Dion cross member bolts

Bolt length of around 95mm should do the business but you should try and get the genuine ones as they are specifically made for this purpose that make them self locating at the start.
