    DIY Fuel injection thread.

    Snap off every 2nd tooth?
  2. Drill a hole in ya thermostat so it can flow during warm up and don't tell ya old man?
  3. You will need that water return to allow water to circulate while it warms up before the thermostat opens. Otherwise you will get hot spots where the water will boil

    Lifan rocker problem

    Lol China factor. Might as well chuck some higher ratio rockers in for a bit more grunt while your at it

    steelies' 64 ford wagoon

    Old balancer no longer true/slipped around a bit on the rubber? I have seen it a few times on various old cars. Need to take out front spark plug and stick a bolt in and find true tdc. /saw a cool video of some diesel bogans and they had a magnetic degree wheel that they just slapped on the balancer. Also have my own problems sneezing out the carb. Think its air leaks from worn throttle shaft or the flogged out hole
  7. Are you just replacing the rod and piston? I have a 4.5 crank, rods, and pistons you can have. I believe it's a bolt in into the 4.1 block.
  8. yea, start at the highest nipple and work ya way down so your not pushing air down.
  9. Can you shorten the rod from the pedal to the master a bit. Sounds like it needs to go back a bit to let the pressure out.

    Welder buying spam

    One of our guys in the heavy fab shop has a hugong something like that ad. He uses it for tig and stick. Usually wound right up. For hours at a time. Has had a few minor issues. He purchased through duroweld in new plymouth. The 3 years commercial warranty was the main selling point. Any issues he just takes it back and they have sorted it.
  11. Check with robinson instruments in auckland. An inline gearbox from them might not be that expensive. As for the meshing, most of the nissan boxes can have a bunch of different plastic speedo gears all running off the same gearbox gear.

    Rich1179's other mitsubishi Disscussion

    123 slightly(like 1 tooth) lower than the petrol. 4/5 the same. The diff is the difference. Edit- i converted one to a rb25 bellhousing for a drifter mate and told him the ratios would be slightly different and he said he could not tell. I suppose 400kw is going to turn the wheels no matter what. Haha

    Was going to suggest the 6 speed nissan box. As it seems like your going to make a bix fit, you could go a nissan navara diesel 5 speed. They are same as rb25 turbo skyline, so strong, but also 80mm shorter. Most of them had better synchros than the skylines too. Can be had for 350-400 if you look around

    Good source of stainless tube and bends?

    We buy a lot of pipe/steel/ss from azmuss in new plymouth. They have been dominating all the other suppliers for price. Pretty sure they are in h-town
