Re: Zenith Stromberg CD 175 Needle/Jet modifications

So I guess no one has an idea = other than Pauls suggestion to buy the book.

I was hoping that someone had done it.

Cheers

I have an innovate as recommended by the MS crowd - wish I had know of the issues raised and I would have looked elsewhere.

Well it looks like I have done my $$$$ - sensor installed but not yet connected electrically. I guess I will use until it fails and get something else. :cry:

Zenith Stromberg CD 175 Needle/Jet modifications

I have got 2 Zenith Stromberg CD175 carbs from a 3.5 RV8 in a RV8 4.6 - they run the engine Ok but do not have needles/jets suitable for the larger capacity engine. Can anyone outline what mods such as larger needles and jets are required to be made to the carbs for the larger engine. Yes I know the...

Re: 4.6 RV8 rough power and trq estimate

Correct but if you are not able to do better than that in any configuration you might as well stay standard.

Re: 4.6 RV8 rough power and trq estimate

Well a standard 4.6 produces 222 hp (166 kW; 225 PS) at 4,750 rpm and 300 lb⋅ft (407 N⋅m) at 2,600 rpm so thats where you need to start.

Re: Rover V8 Coolant Circulation Direction

Ok got it now :idea: - thanks - my initial thought was you were referring to drilling a hole in the thermostat housing :? .

Cheers and thanks

Simplest is to drill a 1/4 inch hole in the outside of the thermostat and position this at top to help air bleeding.
Hi Ian - thanks for that but I am not sure I follow - can you explain a bit further? For a dummy :lol:

Thanks

Rover V8 Coolant Circulation Direction

With a Rover V8 3.5 with carbs which direction does the coolant flow? Out the inlet manifold through the thermostat into the top radiator hose, into the top of the radiator through the radiator, out the bottom hose and back to the water pump or is it vice versa? I have a Rover v8 with the 4.0 serpen...

Re: Megasquirt - RusEFI

Garrycol, unfortunately I don’t have the 14cux ecu, I’m using Rovers very first ecu the 4cu really ancient! They are cheap and easy to find second hand - later can be remapped if needed. On a Rover V8 is was basically only the Thor engines (Gems as well?) that had a cam sensor - to put one into an ...

Re: Megasquirt - RusEFI

Be careful if you choose the Megasquirt system - if you go MS3 (sequential injection) you will need a cam sensor but earlier versions do not. Documentation is absolutely horrible but being in the UK you can help so my recommendation would be to get an earlier version MS that is already assembled - g...

Re: The only V8 I've ever owned was a Daimler 2.5 - But I Liked it !

I know Jag were very keen on only using their own engines. To the point of making sure the Rover V8 couldn't be fitted to a new model in BL days. XJ40? Which also ruled out fitting their own v12. :D But your theory makes no sense with the Daimler 2.5 saloon. If a six was better in every way. It's t...

Re: The only V8 I've ever owned was a Daimler 2.5 - But I Liked it !

Daimler also made a 4 litre V8 for the Majestic Major. Often wondered why Jaguar never used that for other things. Because a 6 cylinder/12 cylinder layout in inherently smoother than other layouts and when Jaguar was Jaguar, V8s were not considered acceptable as they were too rough and lumpy to go ...
