Re: Byron's 1968 L13-3 on the Tree L510

Re: Cam Tower Shims - Lash Pad Compensation

The distance between sprockets is altered no matter what side of the head material is taken from. The geometry between the valves and cam will only be modified when machining the top. So what you are saying is the shims are only necessary for compensating for the valve train - not making up the dif...

Re: Cam Tower Shims - Lash Pad Compensation

The cam tower shims are only required if you have the top of the head machined, which should happen anytime you warp a head, machining just the head surface could put your cam in a bind situation, so whatever comes off the top of the head should be replaced with the shims to keep the correct geometr...

Re: S30 VG30ET build

Some updates, I've fallen way behind with updates so I'll just jump to where I'm at now.

Re: My VG30-Powered Samurai

10-15 degrees is good, but the best way is to run it untill it pings, then back it off a couple degrees and thats it.

Re: Bert Vorgon's Spring Maintenance Project

one problem with the higher light output bulbs is heat, they put a lot of heat out which can melt some of the lenses that are very close to the bulbs.\ I went led years ago and found that the light output and direction if you get the correct bulbs is negligible. The shit you see at lordco that are s...
