Re: Twincam wiring

Corrections to the above. The 117 G161W EFI uses a JFUX4 dizzy and Bosch D-jetronic EFI. After figuring that out for myself I found that info is available in webland. (Not that webland is accurate - I still can't believe the errors on "Isuzu Engine" sites (wiki?).) Still not sure if this w...

Re: Twincam wiring

I hate awaking old threads, but there is a G161W EFI. However whether you call factory standard or not is conjecture, not that it effects anyone because only one remains. GMH imported 3 G161W 117s for evaluation back in the 1970s. I have a pic of one I parked on Hoddle St Melbourne in the late 1970s...

Re: G180 twin cam parts wanted

Thanks. But I already have the best - ie, the OEM G200W manifold which fits all my vehicles.

I do have a 10mm laser cut exhaust flange that may be uncommitted.

Re: G180 twin cam parts wanted

The G200W gaskets should be the same. The larger bore shouldn't matter much (whereas smaller bore headgaskets for larger bores DOES matter!). All perishables should be available - eg, bearings (mains, bigends, cams, layshaft) & gaskets (I suggest MD Spares' E3B-G295 {KP G295VNA}). For the G200W,...

Re: Lowkey's G200W

In keeping with low down torque I'd keep the 4:2:1. 4:1 is for high RPM and for that I'd suggest another engine - maybe a Mitsubishi 4G63(?) but out of a Hyundai - add $1k cams ex-USA ($2k in Aus - not that I know what the cams are) which apparently boosts it to 500HP. Of course if you want to stick...

Good info. I've been using reduction starters for years but of course I have Belletts, Florians & Wasps with the olde G161-OHV engine (else G200Ws) with their leftside startermotors and those vehicles don't have the same clearance problems as Geminis. Apart from only drawing about 140A instead o...

Re: water pump

Is yours rebuildable? Leaks & bearings can be replaced; it's only impeller damage or body damage/corrosion that is a big problem. I have a few NOS but may want them for some G200W rebuilds I'm doing, but then the original pumps may become available... I think some of the Jap SOHCs had similar pu...

The Holdens weren't equivalent once compared to removed layshaft/dumy-cam bearings.

Oh well, at least I have some spares....

Re: G161W-G180W-G200W bearing sets (including cam bearings)

A certain "OHV" site reckoned the dummy cam bearings can't be sourced though I've heard that before... (and they could).

I have some "Holden" equivalents though I'm get to confirm they are the same - though they have a single split - and then find out what they are out of.

Re: Engine for sale on eBay - what is it out of?

BTW - as I recall it sold to the first & only bid at $500.
IMO that's not bad compared to the $1500 (from memory) an overseas buyer bought an IMO lesser G161W (tho it may have been a 117 G161W) with some bits or peripherals missing (a few years ago).
