    How much do you drive?

    Hi Brian, it's been ages since I've heard from you. I thought you had given up the Alpine hobby? Should you ever visit Germany again you are of course invited to a barbecue and a small small - or large - beer with me. Your question, My tuned engine has now since 2014 about 16000 km on the...

    Modern Hydraulic Clutch slave

    Yes, there is a aluminum spacer between the slave cylinder and the pressure plate. This can be seen in the first two pictures. If necessary, I can send you a drawing as a PDF, but the height should be adapted to your clutch.

    Modern Hydraulic Clutch slave

    The slave cylinder can also be used for the stock Alpine transmission. The aluminum intermediate plate must be adjusted in length so that the slave cylinder has a small clearance. This one here is the matching...

    #21 Stetina Lightened flywheel

    ... yes , as already mentioned the Bellhousing comes from Dellow Automotiv Australia. I have found old documents with the prices at that time. These should certainly be much higher today.

    ... good morning Bernd, nice to read from you. We had no contact for a long time. But we will see each other for sure in UK or at the latest at the Sunbeam meeting in Hof. For the others here: If anyone is interested in the dimensions for the flywheel I can post a drawing with all the...

    #21 Stetina Lightened flywheel

    I wasn't sure of the weight of the flywheel and went to the garage to reweigh. Without starter ring gear I come to 4.3 kg plus about 1 kg for the gear. I still planned for safety in the design. I would without hesitation the flywheel ( C45 Steel ) at some points still facilitate. The...

    #21 Stetina Lightened flywheel

    ....the mounting and the coupling surface are certainly designed as shown here in the pictures. This flywheel is with 5.7 kg a lot lighter than the original flywheel. It was made to use a Toypta clutch on a 5 speed Toyota transmission. The matching bellhousing came from Dellow Automotis in...

    New School Custom Pistons

    I found the drawing on paper immediately. The PDF file should be on my other PC. I will look t here tomorrow. But back to my question. What do you do in the States to tune the engines ? Is 160 - 170 HP really possible ? Even with big valves, CNC machined Cc , Race Cam , machined ports...

    New School Custom Pistons

    @alpine_64 The combustion chamber is tapered by 4° towards the valves. Of course, it is not machined exactly according to Vizard, but it roughly takes the shape. However, it seems to work ? The engine runs really well in conjunction with all the other modifications. Dan, I will check if...

    New School Custom Pistons

    Hi Dan, the rods are a little longer. From the middle of the big end to the middle of the small end the dimension is 162.3 mm. Compression height of the piston 27,5 mm ! My first cylinder heads I have still in manual work on the Vizzard Modefikationen. But then it was too much work for me. I...

    New School Custom Pistons

    I would never have guessed that the ratio of the inlet valve to the exhaust valve is so low? My engine guy gives 33 mm exhaust valve as max. size. But here I have to make a small correction to my specifications. I looked in my files and noticed that my valves are 39.8 mm / 32 mm / 7 mm. The...

    New School Custom Pistons

    Hi Dan, my head gasket is the original head gasket. So far without complications. Better would be a matched gasket to the larger bore. But works fine with the many other modifications that have been made. I had the conrods made by Andy ( WMS ) in 2013 to my own drawing. The data should still...

    Always interesting what I get to read here. But today I would like to contribute something on the subject of New School Piston. Since 2014 move in my Alpine also New School pistons. After a long search, I found BMW E46 , 318i, pistons with 84 mm diameter that I have installed with matching...
