    Clutch options/choices for BHW/R150

    The back of my bhw blocks is now the bolt pattern of a v6 4 runner. The 3.0 and 3.4 v6 both share the same crank pattern, fit the same r150 bellhousings. The 3.4 starter will give a little more oomph. The 3.4 also gives i believe a 10mm bigger clutch. I am not sure a stock aisin clutch...

    Old AHU v belt AC crank pulley mount to BHW crank pulleys/dampner???

    I believe the old AHU or maybe even early ALH used a v belt driven crank pulley bolted to the outside of the crank pulley/balancer. My 1987 4 runner has a fully rebuilt and ice cold ac system. Seems silly to ditch the compressor if I can mount the 4 runners stock compressor to the BHW...

    BHW meets A340F...any pointers before going stand alone

    I'm almost finished with my 1st gen 4 runner tdi conversion using an r150f. The little lady's disco 2 land rover sucks fuel and is consuming a bit of coolant. I want to drop a tdi in it this fall. I plan to use the 89 to 94 Toyota pick up/4 runner a340f found behind the 3.0 v6 and a 4.10...

    A/C clutch wiring

    Im putting a BHW into a 1st gen 4runner. The 4 runner uses an A/C multiplier in the system to power the clutch. I believe the passat only uses a pressure sensor, relay/fuse and switch. Could any one tell me how the passat is wired, maybe a diagram as im using the passar AC compressor in this...

    BHW in IFS 4runner oil pan mods, swaps for diff clearance

    What did you guys do to clear the diff? I have about a 1 inch diff drop which lowers the front of the diff a hair up front and approx 1 inch in the rear. I have done a 2 inch body lift. I have not gotten the engine installed yet but looks like a tight fit. Did you guys swap pans to the...

    BHW tuning and turbo upgrade guru questions

    I've been exchanging some emails with a few people over the past few months about the use of a BHW in a boat. The big hang up is always the lack of a water cooled turbo and exhaust manifold. I've talked in depth with a gentleman who used a non turbo diesel with dry exhaust. He ran water into...

    Southbend clutch vs fx300 initial review

    1st set up i had was Whitbread set up with fx300. The first 2000 miles of break in was brutal. Tons of chatter. Clutch feel was good, not heavy. I have not driven a stock 5 speed passat to make a comparison. After 2000 miles it smoothed out. After 2500 miles it drove like a normal clutch to me...

    Buyer beware clutch masters fx300 with Whitbread flywheel

    So I've had my 5 speed conversion @ a year and other than the brutal truth of a horrible break in period I've been a huge fan of the fx300 until about 4 months ago when it began slipping in 4th or 5th gear when cold. The passat is my dd and my shop at both work and home are slammed busy from...

    Front lower control arm (rearward) bolt

    It's common knowledge these control arm bushings can be problematic with cracking/tearing which cause an awesome clunk noise when shifting gears or going over bumps. It can also cause alignment and wondering steering going down the free way. I run a shop, a lawn equipment shop so im essentially...
