    Re: Pipes pinto :)

    after matching the inlet manifold to the head i got a bit of a surprise



    the jenvey manifold is really nice and seals with o rings, BUT doesnt suit a head with big ports, opening the manifold up to match the head has broken into the o ring grooves.



    fortunatly theres just enough thickness to the mounting flange to machine the grove out.




    at this point i am undecided which way to go, i could machine up a plate like a sidedraft carb has with a o ring groove in each side to carry new o rings, or simply open a gasket out a bit and use a gasket and sealant. theres not a lot of material left to seal with, but there shoudl be enough, at least on injection if it develops an air leak the worst that will happen is a bad idle, no danger of a lean mixture like it woudl get on carbs

    Re: Pipes pinto :)

    at the moment im defiantly errring on the side of using a gasket rather than faffing around making misabs.

    with that in mind i ran a fly cutter across the manifold face of the head to give a better surface to seal against, just for good measure i did the exhaust face too. nothing earth shattering, but a nice touch. its not something i usually have done, but thats simply a case of economics, when i had to subcontact it out it was hard to justify the cost

    Shame about the manifold breaking out like that.

    I like the Milling machine, it certainly looks good.

    Those inlet ports look Huuuuge !!!!

    they are, but thats mainly down to me lifting the ports up, i refuse to use port filler, because sooner or later it does come out

    Re: Pipes pinto :)

    Did that start off as an injection head then, or a carbed head?

    Dont suppose it makes any difference if you're going to do that to it does it...

    Oh ok... Have they got a smaller combustion chamber than a 2.0ltr?

    too big! they are only that size because i have lifted them up and the original inlet manifold had big ports!

    in all honesty i dont know ive never measured them as such, and right now the head is 100miles away

    What's the basic advantage of using the 1600 head then Graham, is it the smaller combustion chamber?

    Does a it give a more concentrated burn or something, I don't know I'm just guessing

    Can you still get the same large size valves in it then? I know you you're going offsetting for larger than normal big valves.

    means you dont have to skim the head to death to get compression, but also theres more material in the short turn. before the injection head came along all the really quick pintos had 1600 heads

    Oh ok. I did wonder if it was also something to do with not having to skim it as much for compression...

    I'm trying to run a new Emerald K6. I did have some problems with it at the end of last year and so far I haven't had the time (more like I haven't got off my fat backside) to look at it!

    How do you go about matching the inlet manifold to the head Graham? I don't know if you remember but I got one of the HT straight inlet manifolds for mine.

    spending money is no problem

    if you order the K6 through me at work, i will give you more discount than emerald will im pretty sure you wont pay vat.

    matching manifolds is done a couple of ways on Andys new one i literally bolted the manifold and head together and because the manifold was smaller and soft alloy my die grinder opened it up to match the head without making the head port bigger. normally you just match them to the gasket, so thats what i would probably do open teh head up to match an inlet gasket, you didnt have the HT manifold when yours was built so its not matched to that anyway
