Starter size?

I'm interested in swapping my existing big old starter motor, for a newer, smaller, 'high torque' Blue/Black 6 starter. Are these small enough to fit and remove without disturbing the extractors?

HK'ing.

vk efi troublshooting

Hi all,
need to pick the brains of the vk efi gugu's out there.

Here is the story so far.
vk efi 3.3 motor in a hr.
car cranks over but wont start
- cleaned injectors
- new magnafuel reg plumbed into the return
- new filters
- new vl pump
- new tachometric relay

I can get the car to start and idle perfectly if I inject start-you-bastard into the intake line.

tack relay clicks when started engaged.
I thought the tach trigger wire, but I checked this using a short length of wire.

Aluminium Radiators - pros? cons?

Am in the market for a new rad, and am expecting $250-$300 for a recore.

Alternatively, what about replacing the whole thing with an aluminium item?

Found these on a little interwebs auction site....

Efi tuning

Finally have gotten the car running after several lazy months and a few issues along the way. Extractors to fit the black motor and clear the gearbox were the biggest hassle!

Car is nice to drive but I was expecting a bit more grunt off the line than what I have. I feel that the launch is a bit soft, yet afr readings etc all seem right. I understand that the powerglide is not a racey box in stock form but once I get rolling it really gets moving very nicely.

This leads me to think a small converter may help as once it revs to about 1800 -2000 things get better it just doesn't pull that hard until then. I have 3.08 diff I want to put in to get the cruise rpm down but I am hesitant if I cannot get a bit more launch. .. motor feels really strong around that rpm.

Air Filters aint Air Filters

How blocked can an air filter get?

Not sure what my best choice her is...

I've used a K&N air filter for about 5 years. It's about 15mm taller than the standard Ryco item, so when installed inside the Ford (Weber carb) air cleaner, the lid sits above the base.

Now, being busy/lazy/naughty, I haven't cleaned out the fabric filter for nearly 12 months. Whipped it out the other day (very, very grimy) to wash and dry. While it was grim and rainy, I just replaced it with a brand new, standard Ryco filter I had in the shed.

The engine seems to operate and drive the same BUT now it idles lower - down from 1200rpm hot, to about 800rpm. WTF?

Hyd vs. Solid lifters?

Could someone please clarify the different applications of hydraulic and solid lifters?
Off the top of my head, I thought the latter were for performance motors, but how serious a performance level does that mean?
Either way, I gather I need new ones for my imminent engine rebuild....

Ta for any info!

HK'ing of Bris.

VK EFI extractor 'issues'.

G'day you fullas. I've been getting a set of efi pipes ready for the 12 port swap over.
The factory sorta got it wrong when making them, but they are sposed to be a very good design.
The flange holes were 6mm smaller than the head ports, I used a strip of duct tape to duplicate the head machining to the flange and marked them to grind out. The lower edge and the widths were near enough to good.
Also, the collector is rubbish... who fits the pipe INSIDE the cone???
Thats gunna be remedied as well when I put the 2 1/2" pipe on.
Jus sayin'.

Wipers wiring

Hi all I need some help with wiper motor on the old ute. I took all the wipers and accessorys off for the rebuild and I can't quite get the wipers right. They go all the time unless I disconnect the earth strap from wiper motor to fire wall and only stop when key is off . I am running them with the stap disconnected at present but the dash is already To go in . Yep earth problem but I can't work out where they are getting another earth from. The second problem is that they don't return to start when turned off. Is this all connected ?

Hi everyone,

I am thinking about replacing my 179 with a 3.3L black motor. Taking into account sump replacement and all the other bits will I have any major dramas. My plan is to give the 179 a good clean up and may reinstall in the future. Cheers in advance.

Gearbox rebuild?

Afternoon, All!

Fifth gear in my Supra box has gradually become very noisy, expecially when cold - grainy and whiney. I'm guessing that fresh lube isn't going to quieten it, so a repair is imminent... I'm also guessing that it is some bearing/s needing replacement, but it really is just a guess.
