    Is that the technical name for it?

    I can measure it but I don't really know what I need to measure to figure out the pressure/force exerted on the ring then the reduction through to the actuator arm. Could figure it out but I know you can control it with a pneumatic actuator and the servo can mimic the actuator up to ~7psi. Just gonna try it and hope for the best.

    yeah thats the technical name for it, i work for cummins myself, these style turbochargers (much bigger) found on the new cummins egr Signatures have being giving alot of trouble as of late we have found that the locator plate for the nozzle ring which is pressed into the exhaust housing have being coming lose and causing the nozzle ring to jam up, which in turn causing low power and excessive black smoke etc.. but from reports your type turbo seems to be holding up fine. i recoken your servo should work fine

    My locator ring spins in the exhaust housing. This isn't normal? Should I jb-weld it down or just plain tig it or is there another way around it?

    Got some ganador knock-offs.

    Dipshit before me didn't know how tight to tighten a screw into plastic and sheared off a mounting hole. Didn't realise until I bought them and tried to put them on the next day.


    Engine and stuff!

    The reader sucks but it's handy having it outside. Much better than an iPod touch to look at.


    I can have the engine apart forever without forgetting where everything goes. <3


    Cordless drill... with a cord now. Battery lasts forever now and it's 'portable' still.


    Got the crank in today so tomorrow's either piston ring gaps and get the rods and pistons in or finish off CAD and get flanges cut. Got 12 90 deg sched. 40 1.5" elbows and a metre of the pipe in the same size. In hindsight, I may have bought too many but shit's ridiculously cheap. Didn't realise it would be so cheap to make a manifold.

    Oh and 5 lug gear too with R33 brakes.

    PROGRESS!!!

    Not that big man, it's only a little bigger than gt35.

    This weekend's project was making a jig to hold me pipe while I cut it on angles. not quite finished yet but you get the idea.

    Does anyone else do all their work without a bench?

    manifold stuff

    Love my little white board, 'bout the size of an iPad so handy for little calcs.

    arrived today

    testing/watching the soundwaves as they come out of the radio


    Water cutter should be done with the test flanges for head and turbo by the end of the week. Need to go buy a piston ring compressor and finish assembling the short motor.

    Let's begin with damage to the S14SR (first motor)


    Never realised an old piston worked so good as a rod stand. Makes putting rings on so easy.


    Head no.2 was warped and since I decided to keep the S14SR to rebuild with good stuff, I went and and picked up another motor, this time for free...


    Motor was free for a reason. Two pistons came out like below. Another had a crack and abrasion on one side of the skirt and the other side had a chunk missing.


    I thought this was funny. The piece that flung off the piston get hammered into the underside of the block, maybe by rods? and left some marks there. On the right cylinder in this picture.


    What's wrong, with this picture.


    I need an ECU!! and wheels. and a body kit... for now.
