My fav... but you must order and wait for production. Sadly, I was unable to wait.
We intentionally lie to customers in order to fraudulently increase sales.
Yup.... looks like a classy place.
More info for your consideration.
Wheels need to be re-torqued on occasion. At a minimum, at least once after remounting plus 50 miles or so....
You REALLY don’t want to put spacers on your car. Geometry issues, torque issues, bearing loads etc. There are good reasons why it is illegal.
Yup... looks like a classy place:
years ago, I just strapped the compressor to the frame and left it all intact. The scissor lift was on hydraulics while I unbolted the comp.......
Bigger is better!
Rough guess please....
about how many crank degrees do you need to get 0.5mm?
Is it a super low number that is difficult to control and...
After some thought and a different style sketch.... I think(?) your methodology would work. Yes, even if the valve is slightly open from too...
now the rearmost section of the airbox assy needs fresh paint!
If I understand you correctly:
1) start at zero clearance (or less) with a thick shim as shown in light blue
2) rotate engine until the valve...
“Zero clearance is achieved by installing a shim thicker than the clearance.”
Does that not introduce an unknown, additive amount of lift on top...
When I first bought my car, I had the belts done by a ‘pro’. He got it 4 degrees out and burnt up a cat. These cams do NOT tolerate ‘close...
1) more or less... yes. with the method I put forward.... you get close to 0.5mm clearance in order to measure at a point on the cam profile...
Sounds like you have it figured out.
This may help:
The only way you can get 239 deg duration is to have a clearance greater than 0.5mm.... or a non OEM cam.
The duration changes significantly...
Had you already changed the shim to 0.5mm when you measured the duration of 239 degrees?
It is unclear to me if you were doing a ‘baseline’ with...
OEM duration should be 54+180+10=244deg
Actual duration measured at 44+180+15=239deg
Delta = 5 degrees less duration
this infers that his actual...
I also find it helpful to always cite the zero when speaking of a fractional number:
Example: aught point five seven mm
Same line of thought.
