Put new rubber brake hoses on the brake system. Now the pedal feels hard and does not go to the floor during extreme braking during autox...

Thanks!

The avatar shot if from the deep river site on Hwy. 4, a site we don't have access to any more. Something about storing logs on a log storage site... Go figure. The car was set up with too much understeer, a great way to cause spins.

The sig. shot is from SmackDown last year. Driftin with 45 WHP...

A result of the A12's massive torque? Is that shroud stock? Mine never had one as far as I know.

Yes, that fan shroud does look to be stock. (just installed one, compliments of Duncan)

Massive torque, I wish! The SMURF was a factory automatic car and came with radiator shroud. The car is a 5 speed but the factory console was left in the car makes fitting a shift boot interesting.

Good work....You successfully just raised the price of 5 speed boxes by about $100.....<_<:angry:

Just got my bonnet back from my girlfriend's place. All masked up ready to be painted:

Pretty much just drive my 1200, it never breaks down. It's my daily driver.
I have a dogleg all cleaned up ready to go in, but I hesitate to do it since "if it's not broken...don't fix it"
Here today gone tomorrow

I put a Datsun Comp. H145 LSD in the car 2 weeks ago. Works great!

Will get to see how it feel racing on the weekend of the 21st during our young drivers education event and race at Astoria airport.

Finally got around to putting in the matchbox dizzy I bought about a year ago. Really is pretty simple. I really can't tell if it runs much better, but feels smoother on the but dyno.
Still need to gap the plugs wider. I will try and get new plugs and gap them .050 this weekend. Will be nice to say goodbye to points adjustments! :cool:

Also finally fabbed up some brackets to install the honda crx seats I had sitting around. The car had Acura Integra seats when I bought it, but the drivers side was bent some and was uncomfortable. These are really comfy. Sorry no pics yet, :huh: but I will post some if you really want to see them.

Been driving it alot lately, lovin it.

Don't expect more HP from the matchbox dizzy. It still has the wrong advance curves (the stock 1200 distributor does not have optimal advance curves either). It won't make any more power than new points & condensor with correctly adjusted dwell. But it will be more reliable, and is always using the correct dwell.

For the motor mounts, the B310 has improved ones that even if the rubber breaks, the engine won't fall off:

But the B110 mounts last about 20 years, so are still good units.

Apparently if you set the dwell to 53 deg and play with one of the advance springs to make it a bit lighter (less pull) on the standard A-series points dizzy you can get up to 50% more power out of an A12. At least thats what someone on 1200.com told me they read in a magazine.

They got 50% more power out of an out-of-tune A12. They changed the total mechanical (centrifigal) advance, from the factory specified 4200 RPM to getting it all in earlier (maybe about 3800, they didn't say). Plus they rejetted the carb on the top end.

With electronic ignition the dwell will always be correct. Go and upgrade now :P

Forged Performance in Troutdale Oregon hosted Z-car meet, I took SMURF ON THE DYNO - 3 pulls for $40.00 for this event only. Results not good- Max HP was 40.2 @4700 RPM and Max Torque 49.4ft/lbs @3800. Rear wheel HP should be about 56-58 @6000 rpm so not so good. I knew the stock motor was tired but that's WEAK. Time to get busy on the A14/63A/RX7 rear end swap before the weather gets wet. Good fun at Forged Performance!
