Long time, no hear m8, nice to hear from you! :) Thanks for the tip, I had given up hope of being able to buy a brand new one and was considering to go to the junk yard to fetch one.

E13S vs E15 heads

Well, I've been able to ascertain that I do have a problem with a sticking vacuum advance. That could indeed explain the odd engine misfires which come after pushing the engine (or using a lot of vacuum advance). If it sticks occasionally, it will most definitely not advance ignition enough, or not ...

E13S vs E15 heads

Alright, thanks m8! Didn't expect them to be rare in Australia, it seems you guys get almost all the car models and editions Japan exports, whereas here in Europe only a few models get on the market. On another note, I have a bit of issues with hesitation when lugging. And pushing the pedal makes it...

E13S vs E15 heads

Hey there guys, I have a slightly cracked 25M head; engine's running fine but it's only a matter of time before the crack expands to the oil or water galleries. Recently got my hands on a N13 (with E13S engine) which will be going to the junkyard and I'm allowed to take parts off it for free before ...

Flywheel bolt torque

I clearly said, machine the spare flywheel you have, so when the box comes out, there's no waiting around for it to be machined. Have fun with a clutch that feels like shit,& the uneven wear Hey m8, you sound like you're having an attitude here. I didn't try to insult you and I don't stand here to ...

Yeah... it sucks.

Yes. I thought you meant that I should machine the one with the bad grooves. Oh well.

Old flywheel: http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc119/TurboZBuzz/Engine/N12_2012-04-19_3220_zps5d42fa8c.jpg New flywheel. It's still a bit rusty, I used a piece of steel wool to get off the worst rust. The ring gear is worn, unfortunately, but it hasn't caused any starter problems. http://i213.phot...

Flywheel bolt torque

Thanks guys! It turns out I need to replace the flywheel, found deep grooves on the surface. The clutch wasn't completely shot but the throwout bearing is worn out, it has serious free play. I will replace the gearbox at the same time because there was a clear wrow-wrow bearing noise coming from the...

Flywheel bolt torque

Hey there guys! My clutch is almost gone, it slips and jerks at low speeds when accelerating with a lot of load on the engine. For example, coming to a crossing in 2nd gear, slowing down to 10-15 km/h and then without touching the clutch pedal accelerating at 4/5 throttle (primary carb barrel fully ...

Jan's N/A Pulsar [pix + vidz 2013-03-23]

I've had a couple of failures lately. The interior fan decided to start squealing my ears off so I had to replace it. And later the head gasket blew. Lucky as I was, the oil and coolant didn't suffer from the head gasket failure. Had to replace the breather filter because the cap decided to fall off...

Tassuperkarts Sounds

The engine sound of the zakspeed capri turbo actually makes my adrenalin pump. That's a very aggressive engine sound! I agree his driving is a bit, uh, unbalanced and uncontrolled, at times. He's one aggressive driver! :P Interesting to see him keep up with cars that are a lot quicker though! Looks ...

Jan's N/A Pulsar [pix + vidz 2013-03-23]

A few days ago, I made a video of the engine running on the new cam (rocker arms are a bit tappy until I have time to readjust the clearances): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1dMYdJfhgY Compare to this video, where I'm still running on the old camshaft. The chuff-chuff sound was very pronounced at ...

Possible camshaft issues...

Eeeeek, that cam lobe wear is very bad. I hope you changed the rockers as well. Make sure to run the engine HOT and do your adjustments quickly. You dont need to let "bed" in or anything. have fun E Yup, I replaced the rocker shaft and the rocker arms along with the camshaft! :) Thanks for the advi...
