    XF crossflow flywheel

    cool. as part of my engine build, im thinking of replacing my flywheel which has been machined plenty of times, with a brand new one. cant seem to find brand new crossflow flywheels, but can find EB ones brand new. I maybe pedantic, but i figure if the rest of the engine and driveline, inc. gearbox and diff is new/recoed, why not start with everything new? so if you know anywhere i can purchase brand new flywheels, that would also help

    XF crossflow flywheel

    Hi Guys, simple question. Is an early E series (EA/B) flywheel the same as an XF crossflow flywheel (84DA block) Cheers

    crossflow roller rockers

    Yeah I felt so bad after you told me it was no good Well i have 3 rocker covers he can play with to get it right haha. one of them is a leaded (no knock sensor or ISC valve) cover, so im not worried if he stuffs that up getting it right. then i have 2 unleaded ones inc. the one on the original engine still in the car.

    crossflow roller rockers

    Yeh I know... That was my old rocker cover. I bought it like that, and did not realise it had done that. otherwise id have not sold it to you. My neighbour seems to think he can do it without it warping. id imagine it needs to be bolted down flat while its being welded.
  8. id say back in the day it would have been piggyback ECUs. I have 6 (yes 6) HKS PFC F-CON piggy back ECUs from back in the day, with a couple of harnesses. not necessarily for X series, but they also have the fuel cut up controller. they were pretty popular apparently from the 80s, through to the late 90s, even early 2000s a lot of JDM cars were running them.

    crossflow roller rockers

    Having a bit of a look for inspiration, ill likely end up making a portable unit out of a wide band. it will come in handy tuning my Escort as well.

    crossflow roller rockers

    thanks mate. Because i havent done this sort of thing before, how do i measure the AFR? Or is it worth me finding a workshop that can help me out?

    crossflow roller rockers

    yep thats the kit im going to run with. i got it wrong, the cam is 215. im just going to try it and see what happens I know someone running a wade cam with similar specs on standard EFi system, and he said it runs fine, even with a rough idle. might need a bit of tweaking of the vane meter and timing, but will see what happens. when I go turbo it will need an aftermarket ecu anyway.

    crossflow roller rockers

    Hi Guys, I know I know, its probably (not probably, it has) been covered many times, BUT, I have never looked into it. Other than the rocker cover modification, what else needs to be done to convert an EFi crossflow to run roller rockers? the engine is freshly built, ACL pistons, standard compression ratio, Crow 14892 cam, 217 lift @ .50" for both intake and exhaust. I figure i should try get the most out of this new engine. TIA

    crossflow balancer

    yeah was just looking at Crow hardened rods. yep. the engine was built for straight LPG turbo. but im going to be running it n/a for a while. the timing gear year is double row chain, and i noticed tonight it has what looks like timing marks stamped into it with locating slots all the way around it at 2 degree increments + and -
