  1. yes, I agree. Such suppliers are not really known here in germany.
  2. no, that is due to the conversion from metric to imperial. 0.001" = 0,025 mm which is considered uncritical according to ORS
  3. Thank you Tom, I called them....they have 0.811" ....they mentioned 0.001" is not considered critical.
  4. Layshaft from Rimmer.... Measurement 0.811811" I read the measurement should be dead on and should be 0.812204" so the Rimmer is 0.000393" undersize. Can anyone tell me whether this layshaft can be used, or find another source for this? Jochem
  5. So to summarize: A-Type OD and non-OD: removing towards the front. J-Type OD: removing towards the aft, with removing the diff in most cases necessary. Korrekt? Jochem
  6. Hello Andrew, look at this. He wrote an article and helped me with my 2.7L engine. As you can see, the majority of blocks can be bored upto 76.2 mm without any problems. After 77 it starts to be critical. The matter is not the bore, it is the quality of the material. On my block an ultrasonic test was conducted to make sure the material is in perfect condition. I ended up with 77 mm.
  7. I ordered some custom rods, great response and service. Lead time about 3 weeks. Manufactured in CH. Jochem
  8. I switched to Saab MCs.....but that is another story.
  9. Aftermarket prop shafts have different lengths. I had one where the compressed lenght would just fit between diff and gb. Result: vibration and not able to flex-extend. Cut the propshaft by about 1" - reweld - rebalance. I thought this was due to the gb being too much aft. It wasn't. I compared prop shafts lengths and they did differ. Removing the prop shaft towards the back with diff in place only works when the prop shaft is short enough, since it needs to go thru the t-shirt under an angle.
  10. You would think by cutting corners it is faster and easier....it seldom pays off. I remove the diff completely.....I gave up a long time ago....I now have the diff removed and installed in about 20 minutes---(ok make it 30 :-)) . Jochem
  11. Rich, I always tried to find a way to remove the prop without removing the diff. I ended up removing the diff. Since it was quicker to do so. No need to remove the tunnel. Jochem
  12. John, you are looking for the VE Tables? Just how it looks or actual numbers? I changed from EV6 (229cc) to modern EV14 injectors (267cc), CR to CP TBs with another TPS Sensor. Same car!! It changed my VE Table completely. Anyways, just comparing tables does not really do anything unless you have matching parameters. You need to be more specific regarding your configuration. Jochem
  13. if you get this under 200 Euros, then you may be very well a very attractive supplier. Classical Dash in UK also do the custom work without surcharge. Jochem
  14. Hi Murray, no instagram here. I am definitely interested so I can only recommend, get yourself a webpage with ordering and payment information and a gallery with pictures. Also some kind of area where customization can be addressed. Jochem
  15. I had the chance to drive an EPS on a TR4. The engineering was excellent done and I was very excited to drive. After the testdrive I can conclude that there are certainly advantages such as parking, slow driving with curves, but for high speed sporty driving, my excitement diminished. I missed the feeling with the road, the behaviour of the car. Jochem
  16. Received today: I will be fitting Martin's (Fred Millturn) upgraded bearings to my new EFI CP Bodies with Linkage. note: dealing with Martin, ordering, payment and shipping: excellent !! (no connection).
  17. Matt also posted in this thread...you can see his work a few messages back...
  18. Matt did.....and an excellent Job! Jochem
  19. ...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 !
  20. so Class 10.9 with 150.000 psi or Grade 8 with 150.000 psi is the correct bolt to use?
  21. Hello Martin, nice to see a supplier taking time and effort answering and helping members. Jochem
  22. 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.
