Good morning, sunshine! My bald British brother from another mother left me this little gem last night. Needs some dyno love @turbohoses on the megasquirt system. After a proper test drive/data log session of course. @foxsenior #lighterisbetter#sportspurposegarage
I figured out the high oil pressure/filter seal blow outs. It had nothing to do with the oil filter I'm using but I did buy a few WIX brand that fit my remote filter housing.
The oil pressure would hit the max 75 psi and stay pinned. @improvedracing @356bandito
My guess was the main pressure relief valve in the timing cover (A) was stuck UP and sending thick cold oil from the pump (2) UP thru the stock oil cooler first, then to the main bearings, rather than the other way around and thru big journal (3) directly to the main bearings when oil is cold and thick.
That caused an over pressure situation on cold starts (40F here) It was definitely STUCK UP.
Because I lent my valve piston extractor...
I lightly (with propane torch) heated the area of the timing cover and tapped it then with it's big pressure spring removed cranked it until I heard the pressure relief piston go PING!!! then I took off the big machine screw and cranked some more until it spit out into the bucket like a tooth pulled at a Dentist office.
I polished up the pressure relief piston and cleaned up it's bore again with 600 grit wrapped around a bolt. Problem solved.
My customer wants simple and clean for his 69 3.2ss hotrod. I’m trying to package it all up and make a trick floating cover for it. Tonight I figured out a way to shock mount the MSD units and make them easy to access with zero tools. They simply slide onto a blade bracket. It’s a Tight fit. They won’t come off on their own. Don’t think I’ve ever seen this, so I should either be proud or scared. #rgruppe#cptkaos#lighterisbetter#3pedalposse
Short of re-wiring this whole car. This is as good as it gets. She’s a dirty girl anyway. I also want to thank the previous ow we who spray painted the frunk, including the wiring, rendering it quite difficult to diag the turn signal wiring. Oof. Now on to some straightforward stuff like sending units and motor/trans mounts. #bleedingpanda#rgruppe#cptkaos#lighterisbetter#3pedalposse
Great couple days filming with @nike in London and Sheffield, here is the setup we used for MōVI work. • @freeflysystems #mōvipro • @reddigitalcinema #Dragon • @sigmacine 18-35 T2
