Re: 377 small block chevy, dual 425s, many issues?

Tanks should have electric lock-offs and and use one-way valved T-connections to prevent overpressurizing neighboring tanks due to heat and pressure differences. Just in front of the vaporiser there's also a lock-off valve supposed to be installed (overhere at least). Both (all) valves should electr...

Re: 377 small block chevy, dual 425s, many issues?

Are all the tanks oriented the same way? I have never delt with forklift LPG tanks myself, but I presume there is also a THIS SIDE UP-mark on it somewhere, to make sure the filler tube inside is at the bottom. My guess is the 2nd tank is mounted/rotated different and you're running on the tank's vap...

Re: Building a fresh 360ci engine for mileage & power

I collected together all the videoclips of the 11 dynoruns and added the results per run in the clip. Also tried to recall what was changed before each run, but my note-taking skills weren't up-to-par during the "dyno-fun" so only a few runs have info mentioned. I also have screenshots of the digita...

Re: SSL certificate for this site?

I too have Webmin running, but only on my 2nd Nameserver, and have DirectAdmin on my main-server.
In DirectAdmin it is a breeze to install a certificate. Takes about 12.2 seconds 8)

Re: Building a fresh 360ci engine for mileage & power

We can get 8mm line and (tank)lockoff parts here easily. That would be my first upgrade to do. The current lockoff is a joke and seems to be ment for small engined cars, as I found its internal diameter is even smaller than the fuelline feeding it. Lockoff shown here: http://fuelsforum.rasoenterpris...

LetsEncrypt.org also supports subdomains for awhile now.

https only means the user's connection to the webserver is 'secure'. Has nothing to do with access on the webserver itself. I did noticed being logged out again today for no reason.

Re: Building a fresh 360ci engine for mileage & power

Had the car on the chassis-dyno again last monday. DynoDay #4 already :shock: The very first DynoDay with 318 'managed' a shamefull 145hp at the rearwheels. During DynoDay #2 I managed to 'up' this to 170hp. DynoDay #3 was evenmore shameful as a switch to headers, X-pipe and Borla mufflers managed n...

Re: Engine likes more advance with iridium sparkplugs...?

I've personally always seen 'increased ignition advance' as a negative thing, as it means the combustion chamber appears less efficient and needs to start the fire earlier to provide max. burn at the right spot. But if it makes more power, then it must be good for something at least. Newer engines w...

Re: Engine likes more advance with iridium sparkplugs...?

Since my last post I've been quickening up the ignition curve which has woken up low-rpm range of the motor nicely. (Also with my 318ci engine) I always had based the max. advance of 32° at around 2800rpm based on Steptoe's experience, but I've now been lowering that point from 2800, to 2500 to 2250...

Re: Based on your experience ?

For the most part I think there's more oxidation and crud build-up than wear.

Re: Electric warming of vaporizer/convertor?

I have not been using a 'silly' ;) IMPCO 300 for a long time anymore because my setup runs on LPG only (425 carb), but even that air-valve could be 'automated' with a solenoid and a MegaSquirt ECU I would think.

Re: Electric warming of vaporizer/convertor?

No, but I'll look into it again when the need arises when I start using vapour injection. My plan for now, is to also keep the ol' trusty Impco vaporizer in the loop as primary, cold start fuel source, and once engine/coolant temp is at a certain level, then automaticly switch over to vapour injecti...

Engine likes more advance with iridium sparkplugs...?

I have noticed my 318ci and also my current 360ci engines seem to like more advance when NGK iridium sparkplugs are used.
Talking about upto 5-7° more advance.
Anyone else noticed something like this in their setup?

Re: Upgrading my EC1 model E to a newer model

Sounds bad. Air in the lines is fairly normal and should normally end up in the radiator or remote canister, without barfing out too much coolant.
Take off the radiator cap and stick your nose in there. Should be easy enough to smell 'raw' LPG.
