Suspension > Spax or Bilstein? (5 replies - 6047 views)

Engine & Transmission > Timing belt tension (7 replies - 7072 views)

I lived for years without a belt tensioner gauge, so don't feel did like you must have one. As John mentions, it does take the ...   07-06-2008 04:55 pm

Engine & Transmission > Replacing Cam Pulleys (17 replies - 11145 views)

Just an FYI- our excellent JH Shop Manual does list a measurement for timing belt tension- whoo hooo, it's 35 Kp! It's in the RM ...   07-03-2008 11:17 pm

Cooling > Radiator Cap pressure rating (11 replies - 15347 views)

Cooling > Radiator Cap pressure rating (11 replies - 15347 views)

Brakes > Brake Booster (11 replies - 16292 views)

The TR-6 units don't fit without some serious mods and I would not even attempt that. The good news is, after years of being No ...   06-12-2008 09:46 pm

Cooling > Radiator Cap pressure rating (11 replies - 15347 views)

If the cooling system is in good condition, it's probably not a big deal. Theoretically, an over-pressurized system could result in internal leaks. If you ...   06-11-2008 04:55 pm

Fuel Stuff > Fuel Pump Pressure (1 reply - 4067 views)

The low pressure SU pumps should provide 2.5 - 3 psi max for Strombergs or Dellortos. More than 3 psi and you risk fuel ...   06-09-2008 06:00 pm

Engine & Transmission > Exhast Manifold (Header) (4 replies - 3831 views)

Engine & Transmission > Valve timing waaaay off? (7 replies - 5138 views)

Engine & Transmission > 5 Speed Gear Lube (6 replies - 5630 views)

Ditto what Brett said. The 20W 50 engine oil is fine for the thrasher 4 speed (it's recommended for that), but I would never use ...   04-30-2008 05:14 pm

Ignition > Spark Plug Wire Set (1 reply - 4113 views)

Engine & Transmission > 4 speed Transmission fluid (5 replies - 4844 views)

I agree with Kurt, not sure if adding AFT is advised. I'd be concerned that the ATF might be too light for the 4 speed. ...   04-16-2008 05:46 pm

Engine & Transmission > Engine Stuck (3 replies - 3646 views)

Engine & Transmission > 4 Speed Jumping out of third gear (1 reply - 2804 views)
