  • Project: Trizz'l Vee Dos (08.21)..

    To build ontop of last winter's project, Project: Three.Oh, we are going to be mixing it up a bit, restorating a lot, and of course, taking advantage of some lower compression.. ;)

    The greedy girl has nestled herself into Joe Z's garage of glory and the engine has already been pulled. Off to C-Tech it goes for a nice follow-up inspection as to why my bottom end has been eatting a qt. every few hundred miles..over 8 qts. on the trip to H20 alone..



    I'll try to keep this updated as progress is made. So, without further adu, let the build begin..

              Stopped at C-Tech Performance tonight to get the scoop..

              Apparently, the damage is to the rings, and the rings alone. They said that the rings I had in there had a chromed face, and for some reason, it screwed my crosshatch right from the get-go. My compression rings weren't doing there jobs. Either or, I am having a custom set of Moly rings put together. It will get cleaned up, re-honed, and put back together. They are helping me out with some of the cost, but they arn't covering all of it. Kinda wish they questioned the rings before they put this bish together last season. Oh well.

                  Yeah, I don't know. He seems like he knows what he is doing. Joe was there with me and I guess it got his approval as well..maybe he'll chime in. Anyways, we'll give it a go, and if not C-Tech will be out of excuses. ;)

                      Call up Hastings and see if they can help you out. They make a TON of different rings and are located right here in michigan. Proven on many race cars.

                        haha, of what.. I came right from school to the shop. I took a few with the bliggity blam camera phone, but it's nothing you'd be able to make out.
                        My rings were compared to some with over a hundythou miles and looked worse. The evidence was there. Not like he was making it up.

                          We were looking through catalogs last evening, and noone had a set of what we needed. Arnie is calling around and putting together a set of me.

                            Just to clarify. the story was not that the type of rings was the problem, but that there was some sort of ring failure. The chrome got knocked/peeled/scraped whatever off the rings and the rings and cylinder walls proceeded to machine each other. Why this happened is the big mystery. Some evidence points to detonation but more says no detonation. Some possibilities I considered where a too coarse cross hatch or improper end gap but for various reasons which he explained the wear suggests that's not the case. Long story short, there was a ring failure. We will re-hone and try again with the rings of their selection. If it fails this time around they can't blame it on the parts we supplied.
