Re: Dirk's Patrol gets even more TLC!

It was known as "Grant's Patrol" and soon it will be know as "Anthony and Michael's Patrol that they lends to Dirk for trips" :rolling: :rolling: Seriously though it is looking better and better with all the attention to deal. What was the reason for the Dynamat and foam in the doors? :rolling: :ro...

Re: New member - need advice on tuning TB42s

It should fit between the carb body and the washer. I actually doubt it makes much difference, as it will not effectively seal off the thread. I also find it very difficult to find the point where you have to stop un-screwing on this engine. The idle mixture screw doesn't seem to make a huge amount ...

Re: New member - need advice on tuning TB42s

Interesting... Perhaps there is something wrong with (or somebody has modified) the mechanical advance mechanism? Perhaps check the advance at higher revs? According to the graph in the workshop manual, mechanical advance should top out at about 1400 rpm and between 10 and 12 degrees advance. This i...

Re: Free Wheel hubs & Auto Lockers

I doubt the seals would have gotten damaged, as part of their maintenance procedure is to lock the hubs once in a while. But I often drive for extended periods with the hubs locked, and have never noticed it making any difference to the performance, the weight of the steering or even really the fuel...

Re: New member - need advice on tuning TB42s

Dustin, there should not be an evap cannister or EGR on these.

Check the tank's breather system, it is located under a plastic cover in the driver's side rear wheel-well, under the filler cap. I am not sure but I think the filler cap itself should also be able to breathe.

Re: New member - need advice on tuning TB42s

Dustin, that is the correct port for the vacuum advance, whichs brings up another question: These engines are very sensitive to ignition timing. Mine will ping audibly at higher revs and loads at anything over 7 degrees idle advance. Thus I must wonder whether your crank pully hasn't perhaps shifted...

Re: New member - need advice on tuning TB42s

Hello and welcome Dustin First question: is the vacuum advance connected to the correct port on the carb? The electronic ignition module should not change the timing requirement at all. As for carb kits, I have managed to source them from SP Carbs here in Kempton Park. But there is a glitch: they to...

Re: New member building 1998 Ute V8

Welkom Die slegte nuus is, die GQ bakkie chassis is heeltemal anders as die kar se chassis. So dit gaan nie so eenvoudig wees om coils daar op te sit nie. Die maklikste manier sal wees om Dawid te ruil vir 'n "rolling chassis" van 'n nuwer kar, sonder enjin en ratkas dalk. Weet egter nie of hy berei...
