Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

How far is that from Meridian/Boise?

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

I know I've asked before...what town do you live in?

Just south of Boise, isn't it?

I'm taking a trip, 2nd week of February, through I84.
Start in Meridian. End in Idaho Falls.

Constant noise while rotating...internal or pressure plate is my guess.

Re: Hard headed Hardbody

Yes the 1985/86 regular cab/short box Nissan 720 2wd trucks had short shaft 5spd transmissions in them with speedo gear drives, you can remove the front napZ case and put an L block case on it and put it in a 521 with a transmission mount mod. We know. I actually have a Wayno mount in my stash of s...

Re: Hard headed Hardbody

Shorty 720 transmission? Did I read that right?

Re: LZ20 engine build

9.7 with a slight cam sounds perfect. Yea, Jess' motor was like 10.7 or something with an open head. Such a bad idea. It was pig rich to cool it down. And leaner and it probably would have put a hole in the piston. I remember uberkevin and I taking a trip there. I couldn't even be near the garage b...

Re: LZ20 engine build

I would stay at max 9.5 CR unless you have bigger cams to drop the Dynamic compression ratio. At 9.4 I had to run a tad rich and adjust my dizzy to get it to run on Chevron Premium. It would take 76 Premium too, but all else would ping. I could get high 20s on the freeway. This was with a U67, so o...

Re: LZ20 engine build

Your compression numbers seem high. Last time i did the math on this, a while ago, I could have sworn it was closer to 10:1

They are flat tops.

Re: LZ20 engine build

Is it a Z20 from a truck or a car? That I am not clear on. My guess is car because of dipsticks location, front. There is a hole in the rear with a plug for the dipsticks to go there too. All say displacement, but if waynos engine gets 8 miles to the gallon...there really is no reason to be driving...

Re: LZ20 engine build

I'm asking because I happen to have a Z20 engine here with all the L20B to assemble it.

Arguing with my self about putting that together or removing the pistons and using those in the L18 I have with L16 rods on an L18 crank. Either option would use a W53 C/C head.

Re: LZ20 engine build

Bump.

What ever happened with this motor?

How does it run? How's your gas mileage?

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

I thought Idahoans would love building that wall.

:shrug:

Wind sucks. I was in Baker City, OR last week when they closed 84W due to wind.
Had to stay overnight until that died down.

Is it Ratsun, or a particular moderator?



I know what I think.

Why not both?
