Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

That looks good! Is that a custom or commercial header? I just picked up my Sr20DE. It came without the stock header so I need one that clears the steering box. It's made by Profab and sold through McKinney. Not listed on their site have to call and ask for it, build time for mine was 7 or 8 weeks.

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Engine is pretty much finished up, few small pieces left but she should be in soon!

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Well high side she's good too! Not much room so definitely not getting the kelford cams I wanted with these pistons, maybe that's something I'll fix in the future if a cheap SR block pops up that I can throw some ridiculous sleeves in and some reliefed VE pistons. Worked some more at skim coating th...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Well she's all good on the low end! Need to check high end now and if that's all good throw the pan on.

Not a terrible amount left to do engine wise, feels nice being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel... hopefully I didn't just jynx myself haha

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Finally some major progress on the engine front, been away with work for the past 2 weeks so progress was at a standstill. https://vgy.me/BezBcf.jpg Will go about throwing the cams in tomorrow and checking the piston to valve clearance, fingers crossed it's good. If not that's a whole other can of w...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

First two pistons are in! Piston to valve clearance might be interesting though lol

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Finally got some work done on the bottom end, seemed like I always went to work on it and realized I was missing something. Didn't have the right sized micrometers to measure the crank etc. Well the crank is in! Torqued down per fsm with new Nissan bolts https://vgy.me/tpFzu1.jpg Next on my plate is...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Started doing the measurements for my crank yesterday, main bearings are a little on the loose side but think I'll still run them with the higher rpms this engine will see

Image

Doing the rod bearings today and hopefully closing the bottom end up after that!

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Still sanding away in the engine bay, since all that dust is in the garage and I was about to start putting my bottom end together on the SR I risked being yelled at and brought the engine into the house https://vgy.me/iYeWOS.jpg Now I have a nice clean place to work on everything. Picked up a dial ...

I'm not 100% sure, Profab is the company that makes them for McKinney and they make some pretty wild headers so I trust it'll be good. That and since it's a bolt on solution for the VE made up my mind.

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Like Byron said, take out that battery tray dent. Frank was doing doughnuts at full lock, it heated up his paint and popped it off, the battery tray dent is just far enough where depending on ride height the tire can hit it. Wasn't going to but that definitely swayed me Haha, guess there's no bette...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

The progress keeps on coming, ordered one of the McKinney headers the other day and glad I did this early. They estimated a 6 week wait before it'll even be shipped out, cutting it close if it'll be here on time. Also started skim coating/blocking the bay, and have reconfirmed my hate for body work....

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

With this show coming up I doubt I'll get everything done to the point of driving the car but want a semi complete engine at least in the bay. The game plan is to finish up and paint the bay, get the bottom end put together on the VE, and at least have the head bolted to the block with ITBs and a he...
