My father in law, has a tradition of taking shotgun cartridges to pieces and using gun powder on the Christmas pud! This year he went for the prepackaged version - the smell afterwards was yummie!

But if that's how you want to play 'it' - ok, I hear you but I won't condition that you don't comment on my threads.

Goodwill to all including Pmac during this festive season.

Whilst i appreciate the time, effort and money that goes into many hispec engine builds/swaps, and i follow and read those threads with much interest.
It isnt something i want for my car, so threads like this with modest upgrades done properly and on a relatively sensible budget are very appealing, and that is exactly what i want for my car going forward

So Yes, please continue the thread Pete

and Merry Xmas and Happy New Year

OK, to get back on track, Pete, can you tell us how that trigger wheel fits clearing the timing cover? my recollection is that the damper packs against the two drive gears, so if you just add a trigger wheel on the back of the damper, won't it foul the timing cover?

Sadly on this forum its very difficult to keep threads on topic.
Spamming is common and it seems to be seen as acceptable..

I do have the luxury of my own traders section (subscription just paid this week)
so with hindsight I should have posted it in there where I have moderator authority..

Normally I would lose interest in posting with the amount of off topic rubbish that has been thrown up on this thread.
However your response and others both off and on forum encourages me to continue.............

Good idea Jon.
Hopefully I have got rid of Sean permanently from my threads.
Im sure the other spammers have got the message also.......

They say one picture is worth a thousand words so here are some pics that may answer your question.
The engine does not belong to Steve, Tim or me and we didnt do the trigger install or the throtle bodies so detailed info is a bit thin.
As I already mentioned we are just commissioned to repare and replace the previous
f*** *p. on the crank.
Which is now all done..
Somehow we seem to have been landed with the reinstall job now.
Well thats OK cos he is a mate and we couldnt pass up on the opportunity of "ruining" a Samuri by putting fuel injection on it.

I think I'd move it to your Traders section if I were you. It's basically an 'advert', after all...

Or how about taking it off the forum altogether? You know, your old "Call or e-mail me off forum", "don't want to talk about it here" etc etc? Cure the issue of "spammers" once and for all, eh?

Little bit Chicken And Egg, isn't it?

Happy New Year though...

Yep, that explains it! from the earlier photos I thought it was a standard damper with the trigger wheel bolted on the back.

Advice taken.
No more discussion from me, no more sneaky advertorials, nada, ninguna cosa. nothing..... just the odd reply to a wanted or a for sale thread..

I have also asked that nice man Mr Burns to remove my little selling section in the Traders forums as I dont need it now.
Just for fun here is a pic of the final engine Im building with Skiddell. Its NOT for sale ....it belongs to a friend of mine and he has bought some nice stuff for us to use.

Now Steve n me are off to attack time.

Holy thread bump batman.

Did Steve ever take his engine apart again to see if there's a little more untapped performance in it?
