Re: What's wrong with my diff??

Re: 1972 1600SSS from New Zealand

Re: Question to the L4 engine building guru's re cam oiling

To add to the above comments, Racer Brown cams have an additional oil hole drilled in certain cam lobes, because they were not drilled in the correct location from the factory ( the factory drilled them in one machine set up) All this is covered in the " Bible". I would highly recommend th...

Re: CV Failure

How about machining a thin O- ring groove in the adapters on the outer edge ?
