Re: need reduction info

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

BRLCLA Thanks for the offer and the link. If you get a chance send me a few pics of the mounts I may take you up on that offer. I was looking at the Dorman AC delete pulleys and was considering doing something similar. I found a few that looked like they could be made to work with a little effort. I...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

Starting on my motor mounts. I don’t think they are all the same but what would be an approximate or average offset from centerline of crank to centerline of the prop shaft for a gearbox.....ox box, stinger, rotator, ballistic.... and no I don’t know yet what box I’m going to end up with. At this po...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

This belt routing would not allow the tensioner to work correctly but would not rub anywhere. If I could find the correct length belt I might be able to get it on and have it work properly. Or I could modify the alternator to work as the tensioner..............or just run a AC compressor. AC would b...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

I spoke to Andrew at Water Walker Props. Super nice and VERY helpful. He even offered to help me get some resolution to my reduction drive issue. After speaking with Andrew I'm going to take his recommendation and go with the 73 or 74" (cage limited) Maximus 3 blade. If you were going to build your ...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

This motor was in a front wheel drive car. There is a heavy duty mounting flange along the front near the top where this motor was mounted in the Malibu. Looks pretty stout. I may try to incorporate that flange into the engine stand. https://i.imgur.com/xMMIGO3.jpg Anyone have recommendations on eng...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

The motor exterior is in great shape. I went thru the process of identifying the threads on the bosses that I will need to use. Trans mounting points, lifting points, and motor mount candidates. I was able to run my tap thru by hand with some lubricant to the bottom of most holes. There are two diff...

PRIVATE MESSAGES

I have sent a few pm's to members over the last week or two but I have two messsages in my outbox that never went.... even though it said "successfully sent" is that because those members don't receive private messages?

Thanks

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

Found this in a post from chuck. Looks like the bolt pattern between the LTG and LNF/LHU/LDK is different. I saw in some old post from JB550 he had a LTG with a ballistic box. Did ballistic make two different bolt patterns for the ecotecs? both the LTG and LHU? Or did they just make the box for the ...
