Re: Question regarding exhaust

What he said, not that smart either but asking A lot of dumb questions has helped me be less dumb Did they read each cylinder on the dyno or was that the ave AFR? Could be a misfire that comes on with heat soak. Maybe a leak in the exhaust that loosens up n lets air in. Be interesting to see with so...

Re: overheating question

I agree with the comment that your pump may be more of higher rpm type, I think eddy's pumps are the same deal. One version has the vanes milled so they won't cavitate at higher rpm but reduces low rpm flow. When's the last time you cleaned in front of the radiator or between if you have AC? I know ...

Re: Cheap Ebay SBC Retrofit Hydraulic roller lifters

If a .842" diameter full skirt body roller lifter did have a .750" diameter wheel the skirt wall would be very thin. A .700" diameter wheel allows near twice the skirt wall thickness at the critical areas on a fully skirted .842" lifter body. Yah I know those that went to a .750 went back to a .700...

Re: Cheap Ebay SBC Retrofit Hydraulic roller lifters

I bought a set of the Performance stock SBC roller block type for a junky engine build because they were supposed to be .750 wheel & short travel. They are neither, .700 wheel and .180ish travel. From my research they may be Sealed Power stock replacements, it seems for a bit they had some that look...

Re: Southern Rust Free Panels.

Not sure why places don't ship them or want an arm n a leg for NEW fenders these days with all the other large stuff I've gotten. I plan to drive to a place in Ohio for a set of new inner & outers for my channel project truck. Should of during winter before gas went up since the election but need to...

Re: Where in the US?

You prob want a state w/o vehicle inspection, an area that doesn't flood, have hurricanes, tornados, yearly fires, earthquakes, good roads(upkeep and driving), ok taxes, low crime, salted roads. Also not a blue state that has a dictator type governor like Michigan

Re: Running with no tailpipes

Flex pipe for the win, if you already got good $$$ into it and wanna be sure, what's a few bucks to mock up some kinda dumps just out of the engine bay. I drove 10 mins with manifolds to a local shop once but they were center dump style in a C3 corvette, I don't think it would be a real issue if you...

Re: GRADE 2 Titanium bolt Strength

Another interesting detail is the hex heads are friction welded on the grade 2 Ti bolts that I was looking at. Don't think I've seen that on other Ti bolts or at least it's not stated/noticeable

Re: GRADE 2 Titanium bolt Strength

Not an ideal comparison but the Torque spec for a Steel grade 8 bolt is the same as the two size larger Ti grade 2 bolt

Re: GRADE 2 Titanium bolt Strength

None of the Ti HARDWARE I've bought or want is plated and I don't want it plated. I've read about coated Ti retainers or keepers but none of the ones I have are as well. If I go on McMaster Carr and look at the size nut that I'd buy for the bolt that I started this discussion about, they have it in ...

Re: GRADE 2 Titanium bolt Strength

Was just trying to look into Ti bolts more and found Cadmium plating causes embrittlement with Titanium, also silver but that's much less likely to happen than a cadmium plated nut/washer/bushing/bracket used with Ti hardware I don't want to have cadmium plating on the Ti, from what I read you want...

Re: GRADE 2 Titanium bolt Strength

That’s not how hydrogen embrittlement works. If you research titanium bolt hydrogen embrittlement, you should find a reasonable study by hynickelalloy.com. Hydrogen is “installed” during manufacturing and or electroplating processes, not from rubbing a Cad plated nut on it. So far I've found multip...
