    Of course. Forgot that 30 and 35 had different exhaust housings entirely. 🤦🏼‍♂️

        What's the hotness in high resolution micrometers?

        Doing clearances on my SR20, apparently they are delicate beasts and none of my friends/workshops I know have anything suitable. Main bearing clearances are supposed to be between 0.004-0.020mm. Main journals are ~54.97mm, and crank pins are ~49mm. So will need a 1-2" and 2-3" micrometer. The main caps are ~58.95mm and the bigends are ~51.00mm, so need an internal gauge or bore dial gauge to suit. In the pile of ancient tools I was provided, there is a set of telescopic rods, I know this adds a source of error but how dodgy are using telescopic rods and then mic'ing them with an external micrometer?

        Hopefully this is a one time only job, so I don't want to spend $1000 on tools to measure it once, but I also want it to be in spec and have the motor live a healthy life.

        Need to be 0.001mm resolution, need to be reasonable accuracy.

        Please and thanks

            I'm hoping that's not the only thing that comes up in my budget, but I concede I may have to pay someone to do measurements.

              Plastigage works really well. A good Mitutoyo inside set will run around $500 or so and that is really the next jump up. You could use a set of telescoping gauges and outside mics, but that adds error to the measurements.

                Mitutoyo

                They will need to be calibrated at that level of accuracy and used in a temperature controlled room i.e at the temp it was calibrated at

                The Mitutoyo hold their calibration pretty good

                  Hare and Forbes sell a mitutoyo clone branded MX, I bout a 25-150mm external set and internal set. Had them checked by one of the dimensional guys before I left the National measurement institute, corrections were very small, guy used to be a toolmaker, said they were good. I'd be tempted to use externals and telescopics with multiple checks and a couple of plasti-guage as a sanity check, you set the mitutoyo internal "zero" using an external mic anyway.

                  aboloute readings at full scale don't matter if you are just comparing shaft and bearing anyway.

                      if its high performance dont even bother with plastigauge , buy your bearings (oversize) give your bearings and block and crank to the guys doing the crank grind and ask them to do a "mount and measure".

                      If its not a race engine use plastigauge.

                            Have you been using mixed fuels ??? ie high ethanol content + 98 octane..

                              Fueled up at Bungendore road Ampol this week?

                                Been chasing poor economy for a while.
                                Changed the fuel filter the other week, and noticed the cloudy fuel coming out. Also what was odd was the fuel wouldn't stop trickling out the line? Like it had some weird suction going on.
                                Also cut the filter open and there was obvious signs of corrosion inside.

                                Decided to pull the tank today, and drain it.
                                Threw a new pump in while i was there.

                                Took it for a drive and don't think economy has improved.
                                Probably have to do the filter again.
                                What's the chance the fuel has fucked the injectors and o2 sensor?

                                Normally just use 91 or E10.
                                Havnt used that Ampol for a while.
