Hi all,

I'm putting a 977B-110 in my XH XR6, need to know a good and local supplier to eastern burbs of Vic by tomorrow morn, person I had lined up bailed. Crow is too far to travel too. Anyone know someone in dandy that does Valve train? Wanted to go Yella Terra but can't seem to find anything.
+ do I need new retainers/locks?
Thanks for the help.
( and sorry if its been covered )

Lance. :wink:

Crow can mail them out, they even posted them for free when I was going to do the wade cam. You'll defiantly need new locks and retainers. I'd even go for a verneir gear too

Yeah ill have to ring them tommorow.

what was the rough price on them? their website didnt really help me. was hoping to get replacement XR6 to slight upgrade. Wade are not helping me out at all and they said he wouldnt bother upgrading Valve train, Car has done 270xxxxks think it needs fresh springs if im going to hit 5500-6000 at my 1-3 gear changes.

Can anyone confirm or otherwise that E Series I6 valve springs are basically just 302 windsor springs??

I was told that many years ago - and if true it would hugely simplify replacing / upgrading them (any number of aftermarket options for windsor springs). That would be the springs only I'd think - ie. surely the retainers and collets aren't windsor too??

Spoke with Crow today, top notch people.

getting Some valve springs in a kit so it keeps the price down and we spoke about the Veirner(misspelt?) Cam gear.

my budget on the whole car was alot lower when i started.. funny how these things happen!

While on the subject of the 977B , how far back can we make the power band go if we have a vernier cam gear

e.g move the vernier cam gear forward would make the power band go back but how far can we go just so it can suite an auto a bit better

E.g is it possible to have the power come on at around 2 to 2.5K and run out at around 4-5K ?
