Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

It's not easy, that's for sure. But you don't have to open up the engine and it beats using an unbalanced 12v flywheel.

The balancing guy i used a few years ago did something like that. We even sacrificed an old 2.5 crank to fix the flywheel to. :)

Copying the balance off the original flywheel is the easiest and best solution if you're not opening up the engine.

Re: Supercharger help please

Be aware that the Mercedes types usually come with an electro magnetic clutch type pulley.

On the 2.3 they used the m45 as well as the m64.

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

Bmw and Mercedes use a rubber as a front coupling in the propshaft. That piece of the shaft exactly points to the carrier bearing in the middle of the shaft. There is very minimal movement opposed to the alfa front donut. They generally last a very long time. At our driftcars we have never needed to...

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

But on the Mercedes, bmw and corvette they're perfect in line and don't twist... The alfa v6 lies crooked in the car. It's off centre by something like 10 degrees or so. So every turn of the propshaft twists the front guibo. Putting the engine in straight will require new enginemounts and a new rear...

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

Did the owner perhaps not notice the odd vibration in the driveshaft from a failed donut and kept on driving?

I've had a completely destroyed donut once on a 75 TS that you didn't really notice. No vibration while driving steady.

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

My bet goes to the flexing in the guibo due to the engine pulling straight when torque is applied. Only the front guibo endures this much movement, the other ones take much less stress.

Loosing this site would be horrible and a waste of knowledge.

I would be happy to donate some money for keeping it online.

Re: 75 3.7 vs 996 GT3 Cup

His 75 is an original autodelta group a or something, so already worth a hole lot of money...

He builds most of his owns parts. I think he has a 103 mm bore to get to 3.9l.

This car weighs less then 1000kg, the porsche will be a bit heavier i think.
