  1. cheers mate..and sorry i had a few beers when i wrote that haha! yes its a loud kocking oise ad when u rev it gets faste obv lol! i did change my big end shells doin the usual lube them i oil first and torque the conrod caps up as required but a day later the noise persisted...so i dnt no weather to get it re'coned as im told jap engines dont respond very well to bein tampered with :S any help prices etc would be very much appreciated :)
  2. how u all doin!? ryt my bottom end is away been suggested i fit new lift bolts because seemenly the sound can be the same as a mangled bottom end so firstly is there torque settings for these?? and secondly does any1 on here have a rough price or heard anythin about anyone gettin theres recon'd?? any help wil be much appreciated :) its been off the road for 14 months :( :(
  3. yeah but do u no any rough prices for these?? basic rebuild all the way to a turbo/supercharger conversion :)...a no a guy who just got his type r (bad word on here lol) supercharged with a new full stanless system dyno'd 310 at the wheels!! now thats what i call power :D
  4. hey right my bottom end is away and after a DIY fix with new shells (unsuccessful) it has sat for 7 months..yeah 7 months!!!...so now defo going to have the bottom end reconditioned...any tips average prices tweeks etc?? perfect chance to maybe up the performance?? looked at a reconditioned engine said ''all new parts'' but how do i no tht it isnt just a quick jet was and bobs your uncle haha so would rather have that piece of mind cheers oh and keano keano keano!!! the son has landed :)
  5. yeah mate oiled them up and first start up was fine...sat for a further week til it was ready for mot n tax and knocked on first start up then but also all oil would have drained to the sump after a week so i took no notice of it.....since the clutch is slipping it over revs and thats when i first heard the 'rattle'...gutted!!.. dad has since said maybe the crank shaft needs replacing..the main beairings seem fine since there is oil pressure...so maybe crank shaft?? labour killer though!! cheers
  6. just changed my big end shells no knocking on start up...but when i approach 3000rpm or after u still hear the knocking and the slipping clutch dont help either!!!...is it normal to do this i no u have to run them in only done 60 miles should i be more patient or just face facts its gubbed!!! :( any help please!
