So what else did you find?

Sounds good on track.
You can hear the inside wheel spinning up. Did you mention a limo coming?
Seems to turn in really well now.

Yes, it's chalk and cheese compared to the previous time at Wakefield, when I really had to yank the front end into the apex. Now if anything there's too much turn-in :) And yes adapter axles have been ordered from Beta Motorsport, which will allow me to use a Subaru STi LSD unit in place of the open stock diff.

But when I was stripping the engine, what I noticed was this....hark! What's that black stuff?
Image

Hmm...
Image

When the head was ported in Japan, they went through to the water jacket in that spot, and filled it with some sort of 2 pack epoxy. When the head was in our hands, and was getting the treatment by my cylinder head guy, he machined back some of the putty, skimmed over the top with DevCon and then re-ported it.

DevCon is the correct product to use in this sort of application, but we have no idea of knowing what the Japanese head porters used. So I think what's happened is that the Devcon is reacting with the japanese epoxy, and it's gone black (Devcon is an aluminium based epoxy, so it's normally the colour of metal) and has started to bubble up and lift at the edges. So the head's back in Adelaide at Knight Engines, and Tony will cut out a big chunk between the two ports, build it back up with weld, and then machine it all back again. It'll be a 100% metal repair and we won't have to worry about this again.

Bad news is that it's kinda a big job, and with all the public holidays in the next week, it won't be possible for the car to be back together for the All Japan Day show next weekend....I'll try to get the Luce into shape instead (and this wouldn't be the first time the Luce has had to stand in for the Hako, as you know) :lol:

I will uphold both of your honours in your stead by attending myself.
(can you see me with my feet apart, hands on hips, head slightly turned, and chin lifted with the nobility of that sentence?)
Fear not noble triers, I shall bear the burden of your non attendance. (Too much?)

Nay, dear fellows, I shall countenance no mention of recompence as I venture forth with a flurry and a bounce in my step to exhibit my wares (so to speak) after first applying (verily) much grease of the elbow.
And if I die in this much heralded enterprise, fear not, for I have done so in the knowledge that I do it for loves sweet bane (quoth he) and have no guilt for I do so venture of my own volition (being of sound mind and a bit dodgy body) and free will, dear friends (verily).

Here you go: http://www.betamotorsports.com/products ... 6&scat2=31
They sold out 6mths ago, and John from Beta needs to get enough orders before he can trigger the next production run of these.

No, the Luce is still in the collection :)

Yup, the plan is, TK's going to cut out all the epoxy, then tig it up, and port/machine everything back again. Bit of a hassle, but it'll be 100% metal when he's done and a permanent solution.

How far off is the Hako Kev?
I have a day at Marulan coming up and thought you might be interested.
I may invite our friend with the camera.
I haven't told him about my other hobby by the way.

Ok the head should be finished this week, I'm not sure if I'll have it by the weekend, but that means early June should be fine.

...and you should tell our mates with the camera, about your hobby :)

I'd feel like a bit of a dill shouting ichi, ni, san(etc) at a bunch of 12 year olds while leaning on a stick.

You need to spice it up a bit. Fights to the death, initiation rituals involving kicks to the groin, etc.....and would it really kill you to wave the stick around in a threatening manner?

...we should probably take this discussion offline though :lol:
