    Re: Liquid piston rotary engine

    Yes, I thought the seals looked better. On the model they still move in and out a little but I imagine the shape could be refined.

    I wonder what the performance is like. Subjectively, the power...

    Can you give us any more details about the donor engine?

    My 2L Zetec uses the old Sierra starter motor. My Battery is Yuasa Silverline 5000 HSB 075 12V 60A 620A. Its physical dimensions are approximately L24 W18 H18cm. It works ok. I think my alternator...

  8. Re: E10 what to make a fuel tank and rigid pipes out of?

    I found this which looks to be well informed from High Powered Media (HPM) written in 2014. HPM is an American website that purports; “Fact not fiction. Science not speculation. Engineering...
  9. Re: E10 what to make a fuel tank and rigid pipes out of?

    Thanks Geoff, I had not even considered the fuel gauge sender or pump. I look forward to reading the article. Looks like I will be using E5 for quite some time.

  10. E10 what to make a fuel tank and rigid pipes out of?

    In another thread an owner is showing off his brand new Aluminium tank. A work of beauty it is too.

    Re: Log book

    Chassis numbers are not allowed to end in a letter. Apparently, it is an undocumented law.

    I know because my chassis number was rejected for that reason.

    Re: Demise of GB

    I would imagine it has more to do with the United States preferring the term United Kingdom.

    But this is not really a car related discussion.

    My Sierra based car successfully uses a 20A fuse for both windows. I have no reason to think that a 15A would not work as well.

    It occurs to me that the fracture could have been caused by an impact at some time in the past. The corrosion on the breaks suggests it has been broken for a while. The tear in front of the bottom...

    Re: Clunking Differential - play/ backlash?

    With that engine I’m not even sure you need a gearbox!

    With a 3.9 diff 60mph will give 3,361rpm in fourth. But I don’t think you need the extra oomph. The 3.9 recommendation was given to me to...

    Will it make much difference?

    With your current 3.38 the engine revs at 30 will be 1,456 and 2,912 at 60mph (depending on wheels and tyres). For comparison with a 3.62 diff, 30 will be 1,560 and...
