    Re: ts77r hole in piston

    What year is yours? You asked for a 98 so I just need to clarify. The 99 tsrs have a dual water box set up for exhaust noise so the cooling hoses are a little different.

    Re: Black Magic Intake Grates?

    I thought about that too but they are missing the huge scoop for the front side of the impeller. I can't remember the name of it so that's my discription of it.

    Did you try the 95 montecarlo 900? That one had it's own pump for that one year and is one of the rarest pumps to come by

    Couple of things. first, after rebuilding an engine with new rings, compression should be at or near 160 psi in all cylinders on that engine. The 640 is a very high compression engine. Did you...

    It already was. I was just about to remove the coupler. The sound of the impeller hitting the wear ring is much more scratchy and consistent. Motor is still In it, but not for much longer

  10. Re: 97 Tigershark Loss of power above half throttle

    No. Reed valves rarely ever fail on their own. Check for spark on all cylinders. Sounds like it's in limp mode/not running on all cylinders.

    There is no such fuse for the ignition system on any vehicle, tigersharks included. I would first start by checking voltage off the coil/magneto. Its unlikely but you could have a dead flywheel...
