Why are my Bougicord plug wires failing? Lifespan?
Car didn't pass smog and started popping under boost.
Plugs 1 & 4 were dark 2&3 were clean (oh that's not good)
The resistance on 3 of my plug wires had opened up.
Grabbed the box of old spares to get it rolling again, and found all of the...
Got the heater core and blower motor in, recharged the AC and that is happy now.
But I have a question I haven't found an answer to yet.
This is ACC not ECC
Can you force it to Max AC I don't see how.
I am not seeing the hot water valve close, it defaults open right?
Tore down a B230FT to diagnose a noise I presumed was a collapsed piston.
Found the two inner aux shaft bearings showing copper? WTF?
(have not measured pistons, but skirts appear normal and consistent)
Noise sounds like a single loose piston.
My Frankenstein 122 wagon project may be resuming.
I am stalled, analysis paralysis.
I don't want to short change myself, after discovering my RF frame rail is taco'd, I am trying to figure out which direction to go. I was planning to use dirt modified wheels and tires so I wanted to stick to...
Boost limited to 250kpa
B230 2valve Turbo cam Garrett 3071 3" exhaust in a 84 760 Auto
I inherited this table, looking to improve it.
I think it is very conservative and I am concerned about exhaust temps.
I don't want to lean on it too hard as it gets hammered.
What is the value of the resistor in the instrument cluster voltage regulator circuit?
It is behind the fuel gauge in the lower right corner looking at the back of the cluster.
It is soldered into the trace and lives in a cavity behind the circuit trace sheet.
Looks like a wire wound 1...
Last time I installed the turbo I used good studs and crimped type lock nuts and in just a short while some of the nuts and studs had come loose.
This time I got new "turbo" locking nuts and more new hardened studs (not butter bolts).
I don't want the studs to come loose again and locktite has...
First is a turbo repair
8 valve factory manifold pumps 250kpa
760 slush box some suspension and brakes
a Garrett/OEM hybrid 3" out that is oiling.
Looking for a quick turnaround solution as this is a winter car and the rain is coming.
The second is a 16 valve fresh build
What should I limit the boost to?
It hits 200kpa really quick
B230 in a '84 760 Auto.
Nice intercooler, big exhaust, RC750's on pump gas.
Not sure how much the trans will take.
I'm not a boost junkie and its not my car, I don't want to turn loose a monster.
This thing will easily make...
Shouldn't an 84 760 Turbo have a vacuum reservoir on the car side of the check valve that serves the climate control?
It also appears someone has removed the (vacuum controlled) hot water valve, why would they do that?
Im resurrecting a winter DD
Is anyone using MSD coils? With MegaSquirt?
It is being used in conjunction with a Bosch ignitor mounted on the drivers inner fender.
I believe it is the source of a noise problem.
