Mating of engine components to each other (Stroker/Valves/Vcam)


Recommended Posts

Gday guys!

 

Just a quick one, hoping to get some confirmation and information from a builder or someone much more smarter than I with regards to a build I’m doing with possibly the above mentioned parts in my RB26. 
 

I already have in relation to the build the stroker kit (Tomei RB28) that I got for a steal as well as the full Ferrea valve train setup with the +1mm OS valves.  I’ve now been given the opportunity to buy a HKS Vcam Step 2 system for again a very good price and I’m incredibly keen.  Before I go ahead and drop the money I’d just like to know if there are any conflicting issues with any of the above gear when it comes time to getting the engine actually built?  I know the Step 2 Vcam requires pistons with the valve recesses, but is there any issue mating both the Vcam system and the Tomei pistons with the valve recesses all together with the oversized Ferrea valves?

 

If anyone could give me a straight answer on this or point me in the right direction I’d truly appreciate it.  I’ve done a boatload of reading but haven’t come up with a conclusive answer as of yet unfortunately. 
 

Cheers, have a rad day!

You need 6.7mm of valve clearance at TDC.

 

Easiest is to determine if you have this after assembly but quite a waste of time..

IF you did your trigonometry at school and have the piston information and valve angle then you should be able to work it out.

Ie put the head on a bench and measure relief to deck height, then do the same for the block to piston and add the gasket thickness.

Thanks for the reply Burnie, although it’s all a little over my head.  I should’ve paid a bit more attention during maths half a lifetime ago in school, hey?

 

I think I’ll just have to risk it.  If push comes to shove there’ll probably be either some below cost brand new valves, pistons or Vcam setup depending on what works and doesn’t work.

huh? if you dont have enough clearance you get the pistons machined. You dont buy new pistons or valves.

    • Hi Guys, my car issues seem to be going from bad to worse and I’m hoping someone can offer some advice. I’m a Brit and have asked for help on the Brit forums but they’re not as active as they once were.    To save my thumbs I’m just going to copy and paste my posts from the Brit forum. I hope this isn’t considered lazy or rude:- 1st post…… For a while now my dash warning lights on my R34 GTT have been coming on. All of the them. When it happens the car runs like a bag of s**t. I pull over. Turn the car off and back on and the problem goes away. It doesn’t happen again for ages and then all of a sudden the dash lights up and the car is struggling. This has become more and more frequent and it’s now pretty much undrivable. I need to sort this out but don’t know where to start looking. A quick search around the forums and I’m thinking maybe coil packs but I don’t want to just change parts for the hell of it. 2nd post…… Ok the latest in the saga……. I decided to replace the spark plugs and coil packs to eliminate them as the problem. I figured they were over 20 years old and could do with being replaced anyway. I’ve just been out to have a go at changing them but the car won’t start. It turns over fine but won’t fire. I had a replacement CAS here so have swapped that out but it still won’t fire. Pretty sure I’m getting fuel to the injectors as I can smell it! Any ideas? Should the coil pack harness have a constant 12v feed once the ignition is on? Can I test this just by putting a meter across the + and ground pins? Is there a relay or something that should give the harness power once the ignition is on? Any ideas/advice would be appreciated. I’m at my wits end. Don’t know where to start looking really???
    • Hi guys, im a Brit who’s been using this forum for a while. I’m after some help so thought I’d come on and introduce myself. my name is Paddy and I’m an old man (46)! I own an R34 GTT in cloud white. Had it a good few years and do enjoy driving it! Also enjoy the attention it gets.  for those of you who are interested I’ve posted a couple of pics. Not the best pics in the world and they seem to of come out worse than the originals but you get the picture   Will post my issues in the relevant forum. I hope you guys can offer some advice.    thanks. 
    • Started installing the meth kit last night, managed to get it mounted so I could still access the awd resevior. Battery is located on other side I figured this was a nice spot for it. Cheers mates.
    • I saw the E in the model number and stopped thinking. Might not be correct there.
    • As soon as I come on boost that rear housing area, along with all the stuff connected to it will get pretty toasty and I'm not the type to race for a whole 10s or so 😘
