  1. Matt also posted in this thread...you can see his work a few messages back...
  2. Matt did.....and an excellent Job! Jochem
  3. ...this is how a 5" plenum with 5" K&N Filter looks like....powder coat pending Hopefully a little test-drive this weekend (weather permitting) and see if I need to adjust my fuel table... Jochem PS Matt, many thanks !
  4. so Class 10.9 with 150.000 psi or Grade 8 with 150.000 psi is the correct bolt to use?
  5. Hello Martin, nice to see a supplier taking time and effort answering and helping members. Jochem
  6. Pete, what do you mean you topped off ? You put in a few droplets (!!!) and look at the damper height. Dimension A should be about 6 milimeter. Then you screw on the cap. Your car isn't starting because of a few drops too much oil.
  7. Common spacers are 8mm. Since disc width here is 24mm vs. 20mm vented Cortina disc, a 12mm spacer is needed. BiggRed does not carry those.
  8. compared to the original EBC Disc....
  9. do not rely too much on this. not all hubs fit perfect. I would prefer to have the 4 holes in relation to the center to be as accurate as possible.

    Diff oil

    I apologize...I used and recommended GL5 for Diff. After this thread I contacted Liqui Moly direct and they recommended me: Hypoid-Gearbox Oil (GL4/5) TDL SAE 80W-90. The TDL Oil have the properties of GL4 (bronze metal) but also the pressure properties of GL5. Jochem
  11. For my upcoming engine I am installing studs in the front and rear and glue them. Jochem

    Diff oil

    +1 GL4 Gearbox, GL5 Diff.
  13. Neil, or Stuart, I understand the upright bend....but what do you mean by "vent behind the gearbox" ? Would you attach a hose to the upright bend and just hang the hose at the rear between engine and gearbox? Jochem
  14. You preferably want the clutch release bearing pressing symmetrically on the clutch, an even distribution. So the clutch friction plate uses its full surface to engage the clutch. A clutch plate not working symmetrically can induce local heat stress on the flywheel surface which can further result in clutch/gear failure. A radial movement (for whatever reason this occurs) should be limitted as much as possible. The pilot bush is merely a guide in this matter. And as Roger mentioned, steel on steel is no good. There are a lot of things that CAN happen. But I am sure, they don't always do.
  15. If curve B does the trick: 1000 - 10° 2000 - 23° 3000 - 27° 4500 - 33° my first data points 1700 - 21° and 2100 - 26° do not seem off much....I will check at 1000 and 3000.....currently Curve F is implemented by PO, maybe I can leave it. Jochem
  16. Ian, this I understand....I am just curious what max advance I can use....I am hearing max 26...max 28....and now max 30.... ofcourse I will play until the engine starts pinging...just curious what the general max advance is with some of the other 123 users here driving a TR3.
  17. feel free to elaborate on this text in the TR2-TR3 WSM. run distributor at 2.700 - 13-15° ?? below is mentioned 2,000 @ 12.5 - 14.5 advance...
  18. I have a TR3 with an older 123 Ignition implemented. My friend does not want to change it, I just have to make the best out of it. Got the engine running again...next step adjusting timing and setting carbs. I set 6° static. (since none of the curves really fit). Using strob light I got 21° @ 1.700 and 26° @ 2.100. Still need to do rest. What is maximum advance one should aim for? It is an original engine, nothing fancy. Jochem
  19. Thank you John....yes I am Dutch....living in Germany....so you can imagine my humour being appreciated here.
  20. 3082 100 142 and 041 are clutch covers. For the plate you can use B&B as available @ Moss. I did lots of measurements on clutches... 142 requires 60% more force than 041 !! Jochem
  21. Intake vs Exhaust... Ask your engine builder...he knows how much the guides should be pressed in. On top consider the seals while you are at it. Jochem
  22. Steve, I use the full lift method to set my cam. You can find the method on Kent Website... https://www.kentcams.com/support Jochem
  23. this links shows the 20W50 with an even higher Zinc content.
