  1. Hi Derek, Great work I must say, On your next batch of head, was you going to add some more martial to this area ? Nigel
  2. MPI / DI, multi point injection / direct injection ?

    another spot to put in trans fluid?

    my 240K has a reverse switch, that is the same height (or close enough ) as the fill bung... I have used that before. that's on a 5 speed box..
  4. I hope you will do a blog about the build.. or at least on here (hybridz.org) Nigel
  5. Hi, Is there a reason you have no oil return path in the front of the head ? I understand that on acceleration, the oil will want to pool towards the back of the head, but a constant cruise, I would think the oil could return at the front of the head.. maybe some 1/2 inch holes or so ? Nigel
  6. Hi, Derek, was you going to make changes to your patterns, so you have less machine work in the future ?, like the amount of martial you have to remove from the valve spring area ? btw, very impressive.. Nigel

    P30 L24 E88... with dished pistons?

    Maybe it's just a standard L24, my datsun 240K ( not Z ) was like this. standard.

    Whats wrong with my VE's?

    How high is your idle ? what is your crank speed set to ?, on my car, crank speed is set to 300 RPM ( i think ) idle is 750, if i try to take off, and the RPM goes to 300 or lower, it thinks its in crank mode, and leans out and wont rev, the only fix, is to "clear it", by turning the engine off, and restart it, my car has no fast idle, i have this issue mostly when the engine is cold... it took me weeks to understand what was going on.. but now, it's a easy fix.. I hope this helps. Nigel

    SU Carb Manifold Heat control

    I had icing issue on my Ford 250 X-Flow engine running an after market intake manifold (aluminium) and a Holley carbie, start the car, drive 3-5 minutes, and it would run like a pig, stop , leave it a couple of minutes and it was fine, If you put your hand on the underside of the manifold, where the carbie sat, it had ice, leaving a few minute let the heat from the head transfer into the manifold , and warmed it up. note though, this manifold had no water passages in it.

    Exhaust porting? Worth it?

    Hi, A few years ago I looked at doing this, but for me it was to much work, and for my setup, it may have not been worth the cost, ( L24 ) I did ask Jeff this, and his reply, which may be useful to others, I hope he does not mind me sharing.. Hi, I was checking out your pictures here http://www.angelfire...zxt/page11.html and i was wondering if you had any from the other side, showing where you had welded up the outside of the runners. thank you for your time Hi There, I was looking for pictures of the welding completed on the manifold. Unfortunately, I did not snap any shots of the before and completed part. I did have to grind the radius in each side of the manifold to fit the fat washers again correctly, but the dremel with the cutoff wheel was the perfect diameter to make the new radius for the securing washers. The manifold is fully opened up at each runner. The turbo inlet took significant work to open up. The front main tube through the header to the turbo inlet was opened up significantly. So the header now lets the engine breath well. there was a little more but not relevant to this topic. Nigel

    Hitting fuel cut?

    I had an issue with my Megasquirt, EDIS setup, it worked fine, but under boost, and hard acceleration, it would just "cut out" like turning it off, what it turned out to be was the shielded cable I used for the EDIS pickup, had been slightly melted, and the internal wires would flex under hard acceleration, and short , thus cutting the sensor output. it was an easy fix once I found the issue, but it took me a long time to find it.
