Re: Cracked Block

Hallo and good evening,



in my engine block, the now 5 inch long crack is very deep too into the material. I try to weld this into a special TIG company. Maybe with success.

Does anyone...

Re: What spark plugs are you currently using?

Internal combustion engines run at different temperatures. If more specific power, the combustion chamber gets hoter temperature. (Very simplified explanation.)

Simply explained: The hotter...

Re: One note to modern engine oils

Fleetwood,


engine oil contained much more zinc and phosphorus in the 1960s, which unfortunately does not exist anymore. (Because of catalyst, residues, environmental protection.)

I am not...

Re: Cracked Block

Good evening together,

I'm unlucky! After sanding the crack in the engine block today, I've seen that it's more than 4 inches long. From the back in the 90 bend to the front to the outlet...

Re: Analyze this . . .

Dann,

you can also use modern iridium spark plugs (NGK) with adapter. They have a high heat spread. The center electrode is pulled forward and always burns clean. They are a bit more expensive,...

Re: Cracked Block

My car is gradually losing the joy that I had. I'm going from one repair to the next. And that for a 35,000 "Top Show Car". In this year I spent almost 4000 for spare parts.

My big frustration is...

Re: Werner - ask away

Re: Valve adjustment sequence

Hallo Synchro,
if you increase the valve clearance, the valves will open slightly later and close a little earlier. As a result, the cylinder filling is a little less and the power drops.

Re: Must replace timing gear

Hallo und guten Abend,


the camshaft wheel is in it, the steering angles are correct.

It was quite difficult to use the front cover screws and the five of the oil pan, because the holes were...

Re: Must replace timing gear

I need help please. Maybe I have a thinking mistake?

If I align the two steering wheel markings correctly in opposite , the # 1 piston is about 1/2 inch below TDC. (Pic. 1)

Good evening,


yes, Patrick, you're right. I will rinse the engine several times when it runs again. -

In the meantime the spare parts have flown in. The aluminum wheel I had to break down...

Re: MMO non believers

I can confirm that, was 'Beater' wrotes.

Two-stroke oil is a good compromise. I do not know if there is a difference in the USA between "self-mixing" and "not self-mixing" two-stroke oil.

Re: MMO non believers

I certainly do not think so! Comparisons:

ATF is thicker, contains high pressure additives, contains coefficient of friction enhancer; it is not suitable for engine combustion. (Residues).

I suppose that's why the English are leaving the EU because they did not make the transition to metric? :-)

Re: GAV closed, car dies

Hallo Andy,

what you write is not a mistake. 1/4 open is only a guideline. That can vary. If the engine is cold, it must be opened further. If you are very high in the mountains, close far, etc...

Torque dimension

Hi, is there a difference between "foot/pounds" and "foot/lbs"? I'm irritated.


Thanks in advance!

Hallo Dann,
the plugs image is not perfect but not bad. The rear two plugs are also less sooty at my engine than the two from the front. They work there with hotter conditions.

Currently from further decomposing two pictures. Again, no deposits, I only sprayed off the engine oil with brake cleaner.
