    • I can't find your comments.   Yes 3/8 and M10 fittings are so close if you are a newbie like me its hard to tell they aren't the right fittings.  They even hold fluid after bleeding.   I have to switch them all out eventually but don't have the ambition.   I thought a brake line was a brake line.  In Australia you can only buy one type but here you can buy 3!  US, English, and Japanese 
    • Great pics Charlie. A huge TY to all that came out to support our event. We had a very good turnout & had some very nice trucks & cars show up. Very nice to see old friends & make a few new ones. A big TY to Charlie..Tony..Carlos & Chopper him for helping on the grill 😎 Plans are already in the works to make next year's event bigger & better. Ill be posting pics soon as I upload them 📷🇯🇵🇺🇸  
    • I still disagree on the adjustable cam gear. I've seen enough of them come apart that I won't use them anymore. A far simpler option is to use a cam degree bushing. All you have to do is drill the hole in the stock L series cam gear and insert the bushing, degree the cam, and tighten the cam bolt.       Another aspect to the L series that you need to be aware of is the stability of the valvetrain. Historically it is very stout, but building one to run 8500 rpms or more requires a good head guy, and the right parts. Then there's the durability, which is limited. Running up to 8000 will mean a valvetrain inspection and valve adjust at least every time you hit the track. A broken valvespring is not uncommon when running that hard. You could probably go a year on this without problems.  A full race GT4 L16 valvetrain will need constant maintenance and a full rebuild at least once a year if no problems occur.   Lastly, what do we call you? Do you have pics of this truck?   Just for fun, here's a pic of broken L , KA and A series pistons from my collection.  
    • Air filter housing mounted and piping done...       Oil cooler mounted...       Will mount the oil filter beside the air cleaner housing and then run the hoses...
    • This morning, I cleaned up the air cleaner I got from Pick-n0Pull yesterday. Inside of the lid. Outside of the lid.  This needs a little attention. These are the vacuum hoses for the vacuum motor in the air cleaner snout.  The two black hoses on the right go to a "T" with another hose that were not connected to anything when I found the air cleaner at the junkyard. There are the two controls for the vacuum motor. i have an idea of how they work, and does this system also use the two port valve on the thermostat housing?  Air cleaner is off a 1974 620 truck.
