Ha, I know that feeling. I waited two months for a clutch too. Snap. The thing is, it's one thing after another for me (and everyone else too I'm sure). I wait a month for a gearbox, wait another month for an engine crane, wait two months for a clutch and currently about a month for a freaking sandw...

Re: I'll go first...

had a bit of a health scare in the middle of it How bad? If you don't mind me asking. Me? Well, I'm just dropping out of uni, I've only been there one semester and didn't take a gap year, I don't like my course and I'm failing it (just a minor detail). I might do a writing course or something fun f...

Engine worth between $1200 and $2000 I'd say with the Wolf3D and gbox attached.

With car included, well, depends on the car and condition.

Why are you selling?

Hey man thanks for the info. Since then, though, I've gone and bought a MegaSquirt II kit and am working on setting all that up. I'm sure any info will be of use to people in the future though.

Ah yeah. Running lean for the test is a good idea, but I'm not sure retarding the timing helps. Wouldn't retarding the timing shorten the burn time and increase hydrocarbon (petrol) emissions? Not sure about the carbon monoxyde though. Obviously don't run too much timing advance with a lean mix ;) b...

You mean SOHC? Nah, they don't. Cylinders 2 and 3 exhaust outputs are right next to each other on SOHC, and the ports are square. The mounts on the end of the header are the same, BUT the SOHC header extends back a further 5-10cm or so, and is at a different angle, so you'd need to add some length i...

Yeah, I've been told to torque it up, get it to operating temperature, then re torque it.

Update. The 161 has found a home in Benny's backyard, and my twincam lower end is in. The gearbox didn't go in with the engine as I had a delay with the clutch, but yesterday I put a new spigot bearing in, flywheel on, and clutch lined up but loosely on the flywheel. The car's jacked sky high (well,...

Phoar, looking good! The main menu page especially.

I like the idea of this forum merge!

As for the engine bay pics, I should be able to have some in a few weeks ;) although due to my engine bay being rough they'll probably need some photoshopping... But I'll see what I can do.

Sounds good, go for it! I like the HoldenGemini.net forum template.

As for the header image, you could even make it select randomly from a set of images. There's something like this on www.justgemsofsa.net but I can't find the code :P

I've now had it off the road for 10 months or so, which is ridiculous, and I don't know how long it's gonna be before I can afford forgies, a decent turbo, intercooler etc etc (le...

Yup. I'm going for around 8:1 to 8.2:1, not totally sure yet but yeah, for turbo. I'm sending off a piston to America and having them made by a reputable company, through my engine builder I should be able to get all of this done around the $1000 mark, not bad at all for international custom made.
