Re: 1600 SP versus TP

1600tp with dual 34ict (or 36idf if you can stretch to it), a VS exhaust & everything else stock will last for miles & take you everywhere... ANY head is prone to cracking if it's abused for long enough..

Re: Dog house fan

You'll need the tp cooler & bracket as well as the wider doghouse fan, also the 2 pieces of tinware duct for the hot air outlet & the tin above the gearbox bell housing. The pushrods are too short because you've increased the stroke by 2.5mm & presumably had to shim the barrels?! New, longer ones wi...

Re: Crazy fanbelt issue?!

I don't have any shims between the nut and pulley face so do you think that could be the issue? Somehow the two faces of the pulley wheel are not close enough together with the 905mm belt on because the outer securing bolt isn't tightening them enough? You should ALWAYS use 10 shims no matter if yo...

Re: MSD distributor clamp?

You'll need to either use a stock clamp, an offset billet clamp or a small spacer with the billet clamp you have currently.

Re: Crank shaft end float

Assuming this isn't a new build, the end float cannot be shimmed out. The motor needs stripping, measuring & align boring etc.

Unless it's already giving you grief, the motor should run ok in the short term, although oil pressure may be low & timing will wander a little...

Re: my 1776cc build

All looks good so far, I'd drop the 30mm pump though & go 26mm. It's only a small motor & the bigger gears may cause issues in the future without improving the drain back to sump. Just sayin... It's also worth checking the alignment of the oil pump inlet with the case hole, they can be a bit hit & m...

Re: engine oil leak

Your case is badly worn, take out the sand seal adapter & put some Loctite 518 on it prior to re fitting & lube the seal/pulley snout with oil. Make sure your breather is connected properly & build your other engine quickly!! I very much doubt a leaking oil pump can get oil up through the breastplat...
