Re: Homemade Engine Dyno

In a dyno you're ultimately measuring torque. Torque is the result of force over a certain length lever. Force is force imo, no matter if it is the result from a weight you're accelerating or from a brake being applied to a certain amount where you are accelerating against. A rolling road is the sam...

Re: Corona

If the Chinese didn't start the epidemic on purpose, they sure had a hand in the spread of it. The fact that most of the deadly epidemics this world has know through the ages (among which most notably the black plague in the middle ages) came from there, suggest that they are more responsible than t...

Re: Homemade Engine Dyno

Isn't there a backstory about Jack Roush using generators to load his engines and selling juice back to the utility? An even older backstory about someone buying a scrap military surplus generator with a failed 6-71, selling that for parts and using the generator as a load? I think you would have d...

Re: Homemade Engine Dyno

The simplest is a step test where the engine is loaded to and stabilized at each RPM point. This is common with HD Diesel dyno testing. True racing endurance engines will handle that type of testing. Many hot rodded automotive engines wouldn’t last too long... hm, a nascar engine might. Cannot see ...

Re: Homemade Engine Dyno

Why would you need to control the speed at which the engine accelerates? Just to measure hp, you would basically set the engine at a certain rpm, put a certain load on it and then accelerate as fast as you can to the next rpm point. Your computer will register tq output on the rpm points you want a...

Re: BBC oil restrictors

Well, you have valve that is internal to the pump and that limits the maximum pressure that the pump can reach. Above the set pressure the valve opens and the oil returns (either to the pan or in most case to the inlet side)ll Can you show me a pump that dumps excess bypass pressure into the pan? O...

Dart Pro1 question

I have a question about the dart pro 1 alu heads (215): do the holes for the exhaust studs go through in the water jacket ? Sorry, just don't remember.

Re: BBC oil restrictors

Correct, I had to cut the baffle a little to get the pan to fit. Keving also made a screen that closed the gap on the side an something that fit around the pump =D>

Re: BBC oil restrictors

... Can you help with pics of pans that allow the stream of air to the pickup? And do you have any experience with the Milodon pan I am using Milodon 31185? Actually it is the 31186 which has a dipstick provision. I do not have direct experience with your pan. The pictures available online are vagu...

Re: BBC oil restrictors

I bought a used GM 572 crate motor and changed heads (AFR), cam (solid roller by Jones),lifters (Crower), rocker arms (Crower shaft), oil pump (Titan) and oil pan (Milidon). I ran the motor with the changes I listed with exception to the oil pump and pan with no problems. I then added the Titan pum...

Re: Oil smoke revisited

Well, our government doesn't allow alot, so no. We live in a part of the world that is becoming more and more communistic in nature unfortunately. Personally freedom is in serious decline here. :(
