Tech Spam thread - because 1/4" BSP gets 5 hand spans to the jiggawatt


Recommended Posts

I think i'll go with a combo of jizzing fluid all over my bench, then putting it in under vacuum bleed. I still need to fabricate some brackets, but i'm being optimistic at getting the master in tomorrow.

Thanks for all the tips gents.

Oil,

Does it matter a fuck if you mix different oils of the same grade?

Say castrol 10-40, with penrith full synth 10-40, and some other 10-40? (I guess more so that one of them is synthetic)  I wanna use up some leftovers/do an oil change for free.

Didn't get to the brakes today, got busy with the "rear end". Anyway, made this as I found my hose stash. Tube is a tight fit and given it shouldn't really be under any pressure due to open end i'm hoping it doesn't leak. Will bleed it in car and just rag underneath it.

Why on earth haven't you *nux/*nix supernerds told me about Tilde text editor before now!

Also, need to use KiTTY not PuTTY for best results for windows users.

My Marina drive shaft has three universal joints. Two are sealed with no grease fitting, one has a grease fitting (they're all like this stock). Im replacing all three, is there any reason I shouldnt use the same part for all three and have them all greaseable? They appear the same otherwise.

If the nipple wont interfere with the movement of the shaft, i had could only get joints with fittings for my commer and one of them would have jammed up the works. so if they dont bind and you have access go for it

May as well go non grease all the way through. Almost everything runs non greasy, and it's not like you're stressing them. Coz, Marina...

Up to you. I've done 400,000km and 35 years on non greasy joints and only one is fucked.

Cost/Availability is the thing, its cheaper and easier to get ones with grease fittings from the States, but they dont list sealed ones.

Shit, it'd be lucky to do 30k in 10 years once I get it on the road :lol:

Thanks for the help lads, will go with the Rockauto ones with pointy nipples.

I don't see the point of greaseable nipples. Starlet ones have done 38 years without needing any grease. Nipples just introduce the risk of getting dirt in the joint
