Default Need Water by-pass adaptor

Guys,
Attached a picture for reference. I searched for the part circled in Red. Not a single LPG fitter out of the 8 shops that I raided yesterday, had it for a 118NE. If some one has a spare piece could you please part it for me. Else, at least please measure the OD of this metal pipe and post it here so that I can get one fabricated. Otherwise, any info on the size of hose used will also be helpful.
This part is needed for welding the nuts for coolant temperature sensor and fan control switch.

Default Airfilter Adaptor & Cam position sensor

Hi all,
Attached some pictures of how the 118NE airfiltr will be mounted on top of the Hyundai Santro Throttle body, and the adaptation made on the distributor shaft to install the 36-2 wheel in place of the distributor cam.
The weights were removed from the distributor and the top shaft was CO2 welded. An aluminium spacer was fabricated to accomodate the toothed wheel over the shaft.

The part looks like a t fitting to have a coolant line to the gas vaporisor ( i think) , you should be able to get it in a radiator shop. I am sure a ford ikon / indica hose will be a fit. this is the hose which goes form radiator to the degas chamber.

Yes bro, it is the same part. Will check at a radiator shop in the coming week, before heading to get one fabricated. Thanks for your input

the adaptation you have made to install the ne filter will most definitely reduce performance by restricting airflow and making it turbulent.It design definitely needs refining. The member on top of the adapter is too thick. atleast grind it in the areas between the fastners into a more streamlined and narrow shape, or else just go for a k&n style fiter to remove the adapter completely, cuz this will definitely affect your top end performance

HI, Please refer to the attached pics.
One of them shows the Hitachi carb and its filter arrangement. Hope you are familar with the M800 carb and air filter arrangement. That is how the throttle body will replace the carb and the old air filter will be used. The top member is for the filter cover piece as in the M800. Anyways this isa first level arrangement. If there is a need for further streamlining the air flow I am open for modifying the layout.

The stock filter will reduce inflow at high rpm. You could try routing that inlet right upto the front grill.

Or try the universal K&N air filter for the zen, esteem - 1.4 litre category.

Hi dude,
Trying to fit in the surge tank inside the boot itself. Previously I had the idea of placing it inside the bonnet. But considering the level of fuel return path, I had to relocate it into the trunk. I am just waiting for experts to reply a doubt regarding the existing electric fuel pump in my 118NE. I have posted the same in the premier 118NE thread also.

Also I had involved a lathe guy to fabricate small components for my. Unfortunately due to bad times in the industrial area he hasn't turned up to his shop since 2 months. I have partly modified the distributor to accommodate a camwheel and a cam sensor. After finishing this part, I can partly wire the ECU and try setting up the ignition system alone and run for a while till I make an adapter for the throttle body and intake manifold. This is the current status

Peter, Not any at the moment. Stuck with other personal and professional commitments. :( Fighting for time for such pending projects.

Default The trigger wheel

After tackling the odds, I found some time for the trigger wheel. I wanted to start with the Ignition setup and run the car for a while and fine tune the ignition maps with the carburetor setup.
Initially I had the idea of installing the wheel in place of the distributor itself. But later I thought of leaving the distributor in place so that it can save me till I again confidence with this upgrade. The attached picture shows the shape and dimensions of the triggerwheel which will find place behind the crank pulley (not an easy job though - the gap between the timing chain cover and pulley is too less. Hope to receive the laser-cut pulley by today or tomorrow.
Regards,
Ilango

What is the diameter of the crank pulley?
Better still would you post a front and side views of the pulley/ tonering/ sensor assembly?

Hi Sutripa, The crank Pulley Dia = 5.5" or 139 mm. I had measured and also cross checked with internet references.

Bought it at USD 278. http://www.diyautotune.com/catalog/m...ase-p-119.html
I had my brother-in-law working in the US, so I didn't have to tackle customs & freight charges to India.
Attached some pictures of the Laser-cut wheel.
A reference from this site http://datsun1200.com/modules/mediaw...php?title=EDIS says that is it difficult to install the Ford wheel (9 mm thick) behind the Nissan crank pulley. Mine is 6mm thick. Not sure if it would need some machining to install it behind or the last option is to install it in front of the crank pulley. Will be going to my mechanic to understand the fitment options. But I am worried with option 2 as the sensor needs to placed with a long cantilever extending from the crankcase, which may or may not induce some noise in the generated signal.

Regards,
Ilango
