Re: Loss of power/Stumbling....

You are miss-informed.
Flamethrower coils work for years.
They usually fail if voltage regulator is bad or over extended cranking. When you push starter button, coil gets full 24v.

Re: Loss of power/Stumbling....

Also check for loose or stranded wires at starter since you mentioned doing the mount.

Make sure fuel supply hose is not cracked, there should be fuel visible in the filter.

Re: Compression ratio

If you look at the parts book, there’s 128mm, 129mm , 130mm cylinders. The 712 AMB and WB had the short cylinders for higher compression. Going beyond 8.6:1 can cause Conrods to self eject. They can leave amazing holes in the block. I have both parts of a broken rod on my work bench from a poorly mo...

Re: Fire coming out of tail pipe

Change clamps to t-bolt full radius type. I find that these work best. Never weld any couplings to header pipes. It complicates future repairs.

Re: Flickering parking brakelight

Also check brake fluid level. The lamp is dual function
Fluid level and park lamp switch. Must of the time
It’s just a cable or switch adjustment.

Re: Loss of power/Stumbling....

Check the coil spark. It should jump at least 1/4-1/2”
If coil is bad replace with any coil with MORE THAN 3.0 ohms.

Re: 2.7 liter info

Just to clarify, stock piston is cast, most aftermarket pistons are Forged and expand at different rates depending on bore diameter.
Also no mods are needed on the heads as the outer diameter of the cylinders remains the same unless custom cylinders are used. Only the bore changes.

Re: 2.7 liter info

96MM leaves the walls dangerously thin. Beware, heat will be your enemy. The larger the bore the greater wall clearances will be. This is what caused the RB trucks to consume oil and shortened engine life. Just advice from (expensive) personal experience. By the way, the piston to wall clearance on ...

Re: Lost compression to #1, but no clue what the issue is

Head was rebuilt. Valves should be fine. Make Sure piston is not fractured under the rings. Call me, I may have rings. Doing 9 motors, let me know what bore size.
Currently setting up my lathe to repair crankshafts.

Re: Oil pressure drop, 712 Pinz

Pull the pan. Make sure the oil pump mounting bolts are all there.
If the one on the pickup port side is loose or broken the copper gasket will shift.
Other items to check are oil pump bypass valve or cam end plugs
Use 30wt oil only.
