    2G My 95' Talon AWD clutch is heavy

    It's good to know there actually were some things seriously wrong inside the bell housing. Pretty nice that you have somebody nearby who is good for working on this car. That's not always the case! Thanks for the good pic of the new parts. I see the disc says EXEDY which should be good -...

    2G My 95' Talon AWD clutch is heavy

    I don't think that's a valid picture anymore though, because it was taken when they had the master rod adjusted too far out of the clevis. It is from post #28 which says "I cannot push in the slave by hand". With their current adjustment the fork position is like this, shot from the video in...

    2G My 95' Talon AWD clutch is heavy

    Wow that's a good video. The whole setup and test from 0:00 to 0:18 looks good to me and with a good result. So I doubt there is any air in the master. From 0:24 to 0:27 it does indeed look like the master rod is not moving axially toward the master at all, it is just wiggling around...

    2G My 95' Talon AWD clutch is heavy

    Just so you know what you are shooting for with the clutch adjustment, here is how Mitsubishi explains it in the Factory Service Manual (FSM) for the 2g DSMs. (see screen shot of page 21A-5) The measurement they label "C" (clutch pedal free play) is really important. You have to have some...

    Glad you are getting a new slave cylinder too. They have a hard life down there where they are. AAA would probably be a good idea too, for flatbed service.

    Ahh good. I could try changing it to the Intake Temp then probably, instead of EGR.

    Gee maybe that's why mine logs stupid numbers. Mine is the older AEM. Could you post a link to where ECMtuning says to not use the EGR input? I'd like to see what they say.

    1995 Eclipse GSX - 2.3 Stroker 400WHP

    I'll be darned. 180 degrees only for those thrust washers. Well if they are wider enough, then I guess the effective area could be pretty similar to the one piece type. Thanks for the good pics and the explainer. In the Chilton manual for 1990 to 1998 they give a kind of sensible proceedure...

    1995 Eclipse GSX - 2.3 Stroker 400WHP

    Man, I really appreciate that writeup on the 7-bolt DSM thrust bearings and crank walk. It sounds like the right stuff to me. So “2 piece”, “revised 2 piece”, and “3 piece” are all the same thing, right? It’s not 3 different versions. The only other version is the “one piece”. I think the...

    1995 Eclipse GSX - 2.3 Stroker 400WHP

    Thanks for the very good pic of the "one piece" thrust bearing that you found in your 98 GST engine (post #8). I'm curious, when you rebuilt the engine from the "early 1995" GSX, what kind of thrust bearing did you put in there? You say in post #68 that you put in a "non split thrust". Is...

    I'm talking only about the little module that Marty showed in post #4. Not the one Steve showed in #33. For whatever it's worth, I'll show part of this 1990 4g63 wiring diagram that a lot of us have been using. Where it says "This wire goes to your tachometer" - there are 2 little items in...

    Just thought I would post this for anybody who has one of these little 1990 "tach filters" out where you can get at it with a multimeter that measures capacitance. This is the thing Marty showed in post #4. This is how your meter should react to it, if the thing is a resistor and a...

    I love it. This reminds me of my dad who had a 1968 Camaro SS350 that he had bought new and kept for basically the rest of his life. For the the last 25 years or so of his life, he lived in a condo with outdoor only parking - car ports. He would find notes with phone numbers on his...

    1990 Talon Tsi English Racing build 2016

    Well that's easy to answer because my engine is done and dynoed and I'm not ever going to be looking for more power. Take a look at the "Photos" in my profile, there is a dynojet chart there that shows hp, torque, boost, and A/F. In the title at the top you can see where, when, turbo...

    1990 Talon Tsi English Racing build 2016

    I didn't have much to go on either, for 6-leg vs 8-leg. But of the comments I've seen by users, the more favorable ones seem to come from 8-leg users. Since it will be a while before I have my own opinion about it, I'll post here some comments I got from people in private messages with 4...

    I think you can get the 6-leg with lighter springs, but Tim would be the one to know that. I've been trying to get my car in to English Racing for the install ever since Jan 19 and am still waiting for them to come and get my car. Myles has been telling me end of Feb/early March is probably...

    1G How to replace a clutch master cylinder in a 1G the easy way

    Fixed yet? This can also happen if your master rod is adjusted too far out of the clevis. Blocks off the port that connects the master cylinder to the reservoir. You have to have a little bit of "pedal free play" at the top of the pedal stroke.

    95 gsx won’t start

    Good, that's easy! I like redundancy when it comes to grounds. So I have, instead of just one cable going to 1 starter bolt, I have 2 cables, one to each starter bolt. Then for battery neg to firewall, also 2 cables. That's how I manage to use all 4 positions on my neg battery clamp. Then of...

    95 gsx won’t start

    Wait, you have the starter out of the car, but you are still using the ignition switch to fire it? You need to explain your test setup a little better. Normally if you had the starter out of the car and on the work bench, you would just have the starter, a battery, some wires, and probably not...

    1G Ferrous metal particles in oil?

    Well good! But we should probably look into that magnetic air you got up there haha! Seriously nah I mean when you have little bubbles in the oil and then you coat something with that oil, like a magnet, the little bubbles will still be there and could look like they were magnetic. LOL

    95 gsx won’t start

    "the starter just makes a sound like it has a dead battery but it's also brand new." By this do you mean that you just hear a click from somewhere, but no whir? Nothing spins? If that is what yours is doing, it is like what I had intermittently on my 1g for a long time. I changed lots of...

    ECMlink Cooling fans cause rpms to drop drastically

    Well, as long as those voltages stay above about 12.5 volts, I don't think that low voltage is the problem. My car never had any such problems for the years when my logged "Battery" voltage was usually about 12.5 volts at idle. That was with a pretty old alternator. Then I got a couple of new...

    ECMlink Cooling fans cause rpms to drop drastically

    Could you tell us what you see for voltage when this problem is happening? I mean you could tell us "Battery" volts from an ECMlink log, or you could tell us what your voltmeter gauge says. If it comes to tweaking things to minimize the problem, here's something that is super easy and it makes...

    Sounds pretty severe up there. The weather I mean. Your mileage on the car is about the same mine was when I first bought it, about 125,000 miles. The first time I took off the intake pipe, I was pretty disappointed how dirty it was inside. The air filter was an aftermarket foam thing. The...

    1G Ferrous metal particles in oil?

    Not a direct answer to your question but, if you have an oil filter that has been on the car for a while, it would be interesting to cut it open and see what is inside. Which raises the question how do you cut open an oil filter without getting metal dust from a saw inside. Well one way is with...

    2G Eclipse in South Korea

    2G Eclipse in South Korea

    Hmm, "as long as emissions pass". That could get complicated to explain maybe. I mean, for your car for example, which is a 1996 model, would it have to meet: 1.) The S Korea federal standard that was in effect for new cars at that time (in 1996) or 2.) Some newer S Korea federal standard...

    1G Quick question about spotty clutch disengagement

    Hey that's really good! I was worried that there might be something goofed up with your turn-over spring, but now it seems like that part is ok. So now when your pedal is up, does it push the plunger on that switch all the way in? Or does it still stick out a little bit?

    Yes that exact same thing happened to me right after putting in new slave and master cyls. I backed off the master rod adjustment a turn or 2 and that fixed it. The port on the forward end of the master cylinder gets closed off by the first ~2mm of master rod movement. That's the port that...

    1G Quick question about spotty clutch disengagement

    Ok thanks for the info. That's the kind of info that is really helpful. When you say "the threads were rolled, so when I cut new ones they were missing a bit of the peaks" - I think this means the shaft to begin with is a little undersized on the diameter, by design, so that the thread peaks...

    Marty, don't open up that little 284L02901 that you showed in post 4. If we want to figure out what's inside, we could do it non-destructively with a multi-meter that measures capacitance. I think. I'm kind of assuming there are only passive components in there, like a capacitor and a...

    1G Quick question about spotty clutch disengagement

    I think the 2g MC rod, being longer, is a good idea, because it should be a lot easier than welding a nut onto the clevis like I had done on mine.

    1G Quick question about spotty clutch disengagement

    Aha, so your "D" is much less than 55mm? (page 6-5 FSM) Then you need more pedal travel - that is you need more pedal height "A" (page 6-5). Once you have more "A", then you should be able to adjust the master rod a few more turns out of the clevis without losing entirely the pedal free play...
