OST-050 - a VERY special build

While doing the research on coating the block, I came upon this possibility AFTER I got the Eastwood kit. If there is a next time, I'll keep this (parkerizing) in mind.........


A bit further......

I haven't forgotten about this build........

The head is now ported, and now has a fresh 3 angle - chamber volume are measured before machining.....

and the volumes are.....

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-050 - a VERY special build]


So to get this chamber back down to about 36cc I'll have it machined .010". The block was decked .004", and I'm planning on using a .036" MLS gasket.



How much less distance (thousandths of an inch) will there be between the cams, and the crankshaft then there was originally?




more to come... Hurray!

Roughly 0.025" or 0.64mm
Not too bad if you ask me and well within the adjustment of the tension pulley

What's a thousandth between friends.... Smile

my #s: .005" + .010", + .011"(gasket difference)

... and it appears to be a but under 2 degrees...



Is it retarded, or advanced??

The belt lenght between the markings for the crank pulley and the stock exhaust pulley is fixed. Reducing the distance by decking the block/shaving the head brings the pulleys closer together. To compensate the exhaust pulley will be pushed ever so slightly counter clockwise.
There for to correct this situation one would use an adjustable pulley.

Dan please correct me if I am wrong Smile

I've been waiting on more conversation (and to confirm for myself.... Confused Blush Wink )


most of the people I consulted didn't really know... they just knew to set up a timing wheel and let the mechanical condition of that particular engine determine how much timing to adjust... but many couldn't agree as to which way (advanced/retarded) it worked......

d3nso - is technically correct, you could move it a tiny amount the one way, or a much more significant amount the other.



now is it retarded, or advanced... photos frequently help me..... Dumb question

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-050 - a VERY special build]

as Bean described... as in the view above, the pulleys (BOTH) move about 1.5-2.0 degrees counter-clockwise. Another thought though would be to keep the pulleys stationary, and move the crankshaft clockwise to take up the slack.....

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - OST-050 - a VERY special build]


moving the crank clockwise 1.5-2 degrees to take up the slack means we have retarded cam timing. To confirm, we go back to the cam pulley, and visually rotate to correct... we move the cam toward the "A" to correct for machining


A LOT more to come... pretty soon..... Hurray!
