Re: Is the Subaru R180 the same as the Nissan / Datsun R180

Norm, Duke's "K" reference implies an R180 ---> The 720 4x4 trucks and D21 4x4 trucks used an R180 as their front differential. As has been highlighted, the gears are supposedly cut in a slightly different manner, in order to be compression-loaded on the opposite side as 'normal' different...

Re: Spring Rate Feedback

Shocks (which should always be called dampers, because that's what they are) should be matched to the mechanical system (which spring rate is a part of). Spring with higher lb/in rates will also have a higher natural frequency. The damper is supposed to tame the natural frequency to prevent the syst...

Re: And it's back!

I called the ISP and asked them to kick the computer and wiggle the cables. It must have worked.

I guess you'll have a Lysholm sleeper-charger on your motor. :P

Re: MG-A with Datsun 1800 needs to get FAST!

What connecting rods did you find that will fit an L-series?? (These old L-motors use unusually wide big-end rod bearings).

Re: Cam sensor on L-Series

btw, that sensor is very intriguing, It's now on my shortlist. Thanks for sharing! It's been on my shortlist for a while but I haven't had any pressing reason to get one. I want to try one in a dummy setup to detect a cam lobe, just to see how capable it is at detecting oblong shapes and magically ...

Re: Cam sensor on L-Series

Some interesting takes on this! Not sure how Idea 3 works though. Wouldn't the sensor need to have a more of a square wave signal? I'd be worried that the decreasing lobe arc wouldn't be sharp enough to give a clear signal. Although at those rotational speeds it's possible? The Melexis sensor was t...
