Re: Engine dyno vs chassis dyno

Hahha. Mate, take this advice. Never sit on Santa's knee. Soon as you do, they'll want to put their hand up your shirt in the guise of practicing ventriloquism but it never ends there.

It's coming up to Christmas, be good to your mum.

A glimpse into yesteryear's tar burning lighting dyno...

Re: Engine dyno vs chassis dyno

This guy has more waffle than my supermarket freezer. Get to the point man ! The reality check is this:- Irrespective of how you obtain a power figure, it is only meaningful if you know how well that power is going to propel the mass of what is sitting on the wheels. Of all the dyno figures that rep...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

......lot of water under the bridge but I might begin my return to this project. Here's a couple pics to refocus. Nothing really 25th century new just more of the same practical stuff. The only subtle difference is in the coil over. Looks "sort of normal" but it isn't. The damper is upside...

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 b...

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...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hi Kevin. All good. Hope the info is of some help to some body. Yes that head was gonna come off come hell of high water. 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...

Hi Zeefa,

What you are looking at is a PCD conversion to 114.3, 68mm bore, 5 studs.

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...
