Re: This scammer's at it again

Re: New engine

About this 3 cylinder engine ANDREW, See the top two cylinders have a scraper ring fitted but have only one oil control ring and only one compression ring fitted? How is this? Two stroke I take it? Why two crank journals on the top picture? Why not two conrods on the same journal? Moving onto the bi...

Re: Engine cannot start

And to what extent was the S cam type fracture of this mysterious as yet unknown component a distinct advantage as to versus a 90 degree fracture?
This and this only permited the engine to run on?

Re: Engine cannot start

And now, to compound the problem even further the aerosol can of the sixties onwards has expired. MT in other words. That clapped out old engine with virtually no rings left on it displaying excess crankcase compression is flying over like its got bent valves so whats the next move to start this fum...

Re: Engine cannot start

And why despite the major damage when one major component became two did the engine continue to run?

Re: Engine cannot start

But what was the name of the famed Ether based " kiss of life " used throught history? And what did over eager hands over use cause to happen to the engine? And where nine times out of ten was the fracture? And what was the exact give away noise produced? And why was it nearly allways in t...

Re: New engine

Blimey Andrew. Understand most of it but the million dollar question remains. Was it right or left hand rotation? I need to know to progress my knowledge in this advanced world of design features . Plus I am still on edge here concerning the late night liason with another atop the hill? And it was d...

Re: New engine

Sounds good Andrew but what exactly is this new method of timing exactly?
For many years the ECU adjusts the timing for Common Rail both petrol and Diesel so how can your method fit in with this?
Is it Redundant?
We talking ignition timing here for petrols only?

Re: Daihatsu 6DC-17 High exhaust temperature

All three exhausting to a common uptake/exhaust? Minor blockage = increased exh. temps? Funny it's common to all three? Law of averages demands all three can't have the same problem so I would look for a common factor linked to all three maybe. Can you measure back pressure without drilling/tapping ...

Re: New engine

All that's very well Andrew but these engines do not lend themselves to ambidextuary moments about a point. That means, for the non believers they run only one way. i.e. The wrong way. So no good for all those folk North of the equator unfortunately for even those engines in the lifeboats there whic...
