Re: WTB - 4AGZE cams

interesting... we originally had '88 SC cams in the engine and they completely gave out at 6000-6500rpm. just nothing after that. replaced them w/ some random NA cams, i think 85,86. power to redline then. i want to go back to the SC so we have a bit more grunt AND we don't have the desire to rev to...

Re: WTB 4AGZE knock sensor

thanks, but that's a bit weird. typically i think most of these sensors have a parallel resistor so when its plugged in to 12 volts the return signal is never 0V or 12V which could indicate an OPEN or a SHORT. So I'm assuming there will be some returned static voltage due to the resistance. the piez...

Re: 4A-GZE supercharged - more power options for Lemons!

my assumption was as the cam gear gets closer to the crank gear the excess belt will wrap around the cam gear, changing the timing. at present its looking like 0.011, 0.012, 0.02" (=0.043" or 1.08mm) off block, head, gasket, respectively. Which, wrapped around the pulley dia of 107.6mm (67...
