Re: Spray bar required with Comp cams?

Sorry Benny I was talking about your original post but put it in the wrong one :lol: " I see that Comp list their cams as "solid" core. Does that means they don't have the provisions for oil feed to the lobes, and require a spray bar? So I'll change my statement. Sounds like Comp Cam...

Who are you talking to? I don't have a cam....I'm asking a question about one.

Re: Spray bar required with Comp cams?

Yes, and most high lift, long duration cams require a spray bar even if it has a drilled core (which is plugged for spray bar use). Interesting. Since my original post, I've found several discussions on-line where people with 240 and 260z's have received Comp cams that are internally oiled. Have yo...

The engine is not in a Datsun. It's in an English Ford.

Spray bar required with Comp cams?

I see that Comp list their cans as "solid" core. Does that means they don't have the provisions for oil feed to the lobes, and require a spray bar?

Wanted - Dual DCOE manifold

Does anybody have a dual DCOE manifold they are willing to sell? Better yet...does anyone have a damaged one they just can't bring themselves to throw away? I have a L18 in a non-stock application, and while I would love to run DCOE's, I'm honestly not sure if they will fit. I'd like to do a trial r...

Re: Valve Spring Part Number

I threw them away after buying the Isky springs, but now i think those are way too stiff.

It looks like new OE springs are pretty cheap (assuming they are still available), so I'll probably go that route. But if they're NLA, I'll take you up on that kind offer.

Thanks.

Re: Valve Spring Part Number

Thanks dude.

It looks like if you search for the 13203 E4100 on Nissanparts.cc, it automatically reverts to 13203 F2000, so that number must have superseded it.

Valve Spring Part Number

Does anyone know if the valve springs from an L20 are the same p/n as the L24-28?

I've been trying to find the Nissan p/n for either, and I'm having no luck. Does anyone have the p/n's?

Re: Problems with Isky valve springs?

I know I have measured seat presures, and spring rates, but I don't know the actual part number. When I have been dealing with a guy like Andy for so long, I just trust his judgment. He's got to many SCCA/CASC/CACC and Conference Cups with Datsun engines under his belt for me to question his judgem...

Re: Problems with Isky valve springs?

I see that as a bit of a band-aid.....spray bars are meant to help cams survive sustained high RPMs, so if you are relying on one to extend the life of a street car cam, then chances are, your springs are too stiff. Has anyone actualy run these springs, with or without a spray bar, and got any feedb...

Problems with Isky valve springs?

A few months back, I bought an Isky L480 "Stage 2" cam and their recommended valve springs for my street driven L18. When I picked the head up from the machine shop, he mentioned that he was blown away with how stiff the valve springs were. I just checked their catalog, and it appears they...

Wanted - Cam tower locating dowel

Pulled my head apart last night, and now that I'm taking stock of the bits, I noticed one of the cam tower locating dowels is missing. Hard to imagine it was running without it, so it must've rolled away.

Anyone got one they'd be willing to sell/donate?

Thanks
