Re: Transmission Mount Question

Your third picture looks like something from a broken mount. Your first two pictures are correct. However, the factory bolts for attaching the center mount to the transmission have a flat side to them and insert from top down so they don't turn when you tighten down the nuts. And the factory nuts ar...

Memorial Day

... is not about BBQ, beer, swimming pools, the beginning of summer, celebrations. It is about remembrance. So at 3pm on Memorial Day, take a minute of silence and remember the fallen.

Re: Alternative Modern Wiper Motor Conversions

Question about lubrication. What is the preferred grease for the plastic gears inside the transmission of these wiper motor assemblies? I have been looking at silicon grease of low viscosity. Any suggestions?

Re: Muffler selection. Magic solution needed.

I will be trying an Ermish Racing system in 2.25". With their headers too that has 2.5" collector. We shall see how loud it is or is not. May have to add a resonator if too loud. Or maybe a Thrush glass pack instead of a resonator. Thoughts? Also looking into v-band exhaust pipe connections. Any tho...

Re: WTB: Factory tach lighting harness

I found this image of the subject wiring pigtail. SubHarness_Tach_Clock_Connector2[1].jpg Where I found the image mentions it plugs into the Tach/Clock connector which would provide a constant 12v to the tach. I could rewire such to be a switched 12v instead. However, if the turnsignal pigtail would...

Re: L motor thermo fans

See my posting in What Did You Do On Your 510 Today, page 95. I mounted twin 9" Spal fans to expanded metal and not the radiator. I didn't like the idea of the push-through plastic zip ties that would mount the fans directly to the radiator. So I mounted the fans to expanded metal to the front of th...

Re: My L20B build, piston cam and other questions

A couple things I did to my L20B. My U60 head dropped an intake valve seat so I got it repaired at a local speed shop http://stiegemeier.com/ . - Increased the size of the intake valve to 43mm, new SI valves ( http://sivalves.com/flipbook/2016-SI-Catalog.html#p=40 ) - Installed steel valve seats for...
