Christmas Update to the MR2
on: December 27, 2008, 00:42:23 AM
Update from today and yesterday:

Shims that I had to get made up

Valve clearances set and cams torqued up

Fidanza vernier pulleys on

Timing belt

Bottom timing cover and crank pulley on

Had to bolt a bit of iron to the head to mount the magenetic base of the dial guage to so I could find true TDC in order to degree the cams properly

degree wheel in place

lightened flywheel bolted on with new ARP bolts

And the 525 lb/ft clutch

And thats it! Just the manifolds to go on, bolt the gearbox to her and shes going back in the car.

looking good.... tho why the "Fidanza vernier pulleys"

are they lighter or something ?  Im guessing they give better timing adjustments (dont know what the originals were like) but is that about it ?  iirc from your other posts they cost a small fortune ?
