Most of the valve seats are recessed slightly into the head. This leaves a slight ring or lip as you can see below. This can be sanded and pollished smooth to reduce turbulence around intake and exhaust valve face. The light cressent shape, just below the seat, at about 12 o'clock is the modified sh...

This is interesting. I was under impression the world WAS full of U-67's and W-58's, especially peanut ones, were scarce. Have U-67 on my truck, one in my shed, and one at the wreckers. The truck one has coolant holes to the intake but the others don't. For all the faults of the exhaust, the intakes...

W-58 liner removal

Here are my thoughts on exhaust liners. No offence, I know your's may differ. W-58 ROUND PORT W/LINERS 1 It's much smaller than the port it is in, and although I am told it flows better than a square port without a liner, this may only be true at some un-godly high rpm. 2 It's removal alone may not ...

oil pan

Aluminum or steel, you should be able to empty it and tig/mig it, in place. So there might be a little smoke, the metal's thick enough. There won't be any sparks flyin' around in there. It's oil, not gas. The cost of oil pan removal and tear-down's gonn'a hurt. Oh yeah, hook a vacuum to the crankcas...

Zippy, results of your nuts exam are in

I'm sorry, but upon examination, the doner is not a match. Therefore there is little chance for a successful nut transplant, as your car will most likely reject them.

[quote="icehouse"]Haha I know I just don't think a lap belt is going to do anything in a reck. I've been I 3 recks and didn't wear a seat belt in any of them.

Re: RE: Duke

[quote="Derek"]Sorry icehouse, regardless of the car not wearing seatbelts is really dumb. I feel weird not wearing one. Plus they hold you in better while cornering. My second car, a 340 Dart, had seatbelts, but I was young and didn't need 'em. A combination of cornering and h.p. on an on ramp, sli...

hmmm... Well, I've ran my engine hard for a good while many times over and have checked the dip stick and there has never been bubbles. I find that test that Bob does a little odd seeing that he's adding the regular mineral oil additive to synthetic. He should maybe test synth oil with the synth ad...

Different worlds eh? Unsprung weight would be a factor also I would guess.
The later trucks and fourrunners also came with a wider set to fit vented discs, with some minor alterations. Are the zx's vented?

Must agree with above post, especially the last part! Did this fix for friend that had eyebrow shapped ding that leaked, but used silicone with washer and screw to help hold it instead...till she got it repaired. Years later I asked about it. (it was still on there!) Maybe it would be best to take t...

Five and ten toys

I understand that it's common to switch Z car struts and discs into your dimes. If so, does anyone ever install the toyota 4 piston caliper up-grade fron early 80's truck? It's a bolt in, monster stopping power, and it's cheap! If not why not? I have a toyota diff in the front of my 620, and @ 3400 ...

Re: RE: Re: bad valve guide?

I'm almost sure its the seals. It only smokes really bad after revving, and it only runs on 3 cylinders if the valve is open...so it looks like I'll be replacing the valve seals. What you discribe could also be worn rings unable to handle the oil 'fog' inside the crankcase during and after high rev...

Yes. Alas, they are promised to another. (It's an arranged marriage)

Re: bad valve guide?

I am having problems with oil leaking into the #2 cylinder. I am thinking that it is a bad valve guide, but I wanted to get some other opinions. I pulled the plugs, and the #2 was oil fouled, and on start up it will run on 3 cylinders until it clears out. So whats the best way to fix this...am I lo...
