  1. Helicoil. Keep the same size and gain the benefits of stainless thread instead of alloy, and if it shits itself, well just grab it by the end and zoom it out.

    Help: setting up dial bore gauge

    Right , ive run across a good video on how to set it up. however, any experience on using it will be awesome.
  3. Right, so have rebuilt a few d16 engines and have had no issues. usually we get the crank inspected by an outworker and is measured etc. i usually mic the thing myself to note the values for peace of mind. however, ive been using plastigage to note the bearing clearance and the GM is not happy with it. he wants full measurement done , which is cool and i can understand that. IN the past ive used the t style pieces where you push in, put in place. hit the btton they shoot out and you mic that. I dont have those here, but do have a dial bore gauge. have had a look at a few tutorials but im not picking it up and its making me feel fucking stupid. SO questions are: #1 can a dial bore gauge be used to measure big end and main bearings #2 How do i set this up. Mainly you have the gauge setup, and a set of anvils. say the the spec is 112.3mm or i have the bearings setup and i measure that to the same. do i grab a 112 anvil and .5 spacer? or is there a piece of paper missing from the case that tells me how to add the anvil to the setup. Any help appreciated as ive asked for the above mentioned gauge kit thing but get the feeling im meant to be able to do it with this.

    wheel bearing grease

    You can fill the cavities to help stop water sitting inside the hub. I wouldnt worry too much unless its making its way onto the brakes (if it has those) check it every now and then after a good run and see what happens, some grease have alot of oil in the soap and can let it out, others a super dry and wont bleed even after being cooked .

    Got Pics? sweat is nothing i would be concerned about, a large amount of fluid would be though. how much have you packed into the bearings?
  6. @Steelies @KKtrips, anyone else? yeah that's the plan at this stage, sweet man, sis might be able to help me out but otherwise yes please. Will let you know by mid day tomorrow?

  9. Go in on friday before a long weekend, if you're nice they might pile the shit in because it wont last the weekend. i paid $20 for like 10kg to cool things at hawkes boes one year. *note* if you do this , dont open the box it comes in if you have food and beer in the chilly bin , the beers will go from warm to frozen solid in about 15 mins.

    diesel spam

    Fitted chromally (sp?) flywheel to the 910 when the ca18det was in it , and it was great, but i didnt grab the super light one but was way,WAY lighter then factory and the only thing i noticed is you needed more pedal to take off because it would stall easier, thats it.

    Making an open diff limited slip

    I nearly got into a table throwing debate with an apprentice once re: lsd's he was ademant that you could shim a viscous unit, no matter how hard i tried to tell him by shimming the unit it was just going to load the spiders he went " nah to locks them bro". so yeah. grab a sweet hardened washer and pack it out. Dawg. The rules no doubt have something about doing this though.
