Re: Turn Signal and Hazard Relays

Polarity won't matter. These are load dependent for their flash rate. Four way relies on 4 bulbs but the signal only on two. You may find that the signal flasher used on the 4 way might be too slow or the four way on the signal too fast. Just switch them. You have a 50% chance of plugging them in co...

Re: Turn Signal and Hazard Relays

The plugs are different. They can only go on the correct wire plugs.

Unless those rivets are loose.

Re: Sr20det catch can setup

I've read from multiple sources that burning the oil vapors decreases "octane rating" of the mixture. I'm building an NA sr20 with ITBs. With the high compression, wouldn't I want a catch can to help prevent knock? Or can I just plumb the PCV valve straight back into the ITBs without any issues? Th...

Re: Sr20det catch can setup

An air oil separator is not the same thing. The separated oil would be returned to the crankcase, that's the whole point. The amount of vapor, be it water or oil is only impressive in it's volume and crappiness when you save it up over weeks. A well running engine will easily burn this up as it is p...

Re: Sr20det catch can setup

Let me ask you, did the S13 or SR20 engines come with a catch can? Then why bother with one? If you have a full on dedicated race car then you may have to have one, to keep blow-by off the track, and if you have direct injection they probably help keep the intake valves cleaner as they don't have fu...

Re: Seeking wisdom re: L20B or Z22/U67

The Z22 block has the dipstick on the left rear of the block, basically opposite of the L20B. Just live with it and check the oil when the engine is cold. :lol:

I do Mike, but I don’t think I can post a .xlsx file on the realm since we changed servers.

I’ll see what I can do tomorrow.

Thank you

Re: Seeking wisdom re: L20B or Z22/U67

Not strictly necessary but if you want to there's no harm. I have an oil cooler on my L20B it doesn't need it but I had the 280zx parts and a Ford cooler for free. It only cost about $50 for the special hose.

Re: Seeking wisdom re: L20B or Z22/U67

The rods and the mains on my Z24 project are from an L20B L16/18/20B/Z20 Z22 Z24 and both KAs use the same rod bearings. L20B/Z20/Z22/Z24 all use the same mains. L16/18 mains will only fit themselves. KA mains are same diameter as the L20B and up but are narrower than a rod bearing. L series mains a...

Re: Seeking wisdom re: L20B or Z22/U67

9.84 for a stock Z22 with a 45.2cc open chamber head on a 1.2mm crushed head gasket. More if the head has been milled to flatten it. I strongly advise putting an 86mm diameter Z22 head gasket on and marking the ring diameter on the head. Now grind away the aluminum closest to the intake and exhaust ...

Re: can anyone tell me how to identify an L16-L18-L20

Look along the bottom edge of the head just behind the #1 spark plug. With an L18, probably A87 open chamber which gives an 8.4 compression. There are closed chamber A87 heads around but I've looked and can find no mention of them being used on any N Am cars even though people swear they have them f...

Re: Insane wind storm in White Rock

It was very windy and rainy biking to work at 6.45 out here.... but not exceptional. The wind was like a push in the back.

Didn't know you had a 521 Keith. I had a red 6 year old '71 in Ontario. I survived 8 Ontario winters, not because of the heater, but in spite of it.
