Talk to the dealer personnel and ask for parts sources for such heavy duty items as you THINK you require.

Now set the timing mark on the harmonic balancer to TDC, and refit the cap NOW start engine run to 1000 rpm and turn the distributor to the left a little till it starts to run rough,then to the right the same in between the left and right it should be the best place to tighten up the clamp on the distributor and then refit the vacuum hose test run .
If it has a ping when throttling up then you need to turn the distributor forward just a little.

How to set the timing on 86 vl commodore


DO that wrong and blow a head.

1 Answer

Stop pinging vl commodore


pinning( detonation) is spontaneous combustion ( untimmed fire) . IT happens as the fuel / air mixture self ignites and the pressures are on the piston as the piston is coming up and that slams the piston hard against the cylinder wall. You have the timing way too far advanced and the CPU cannot retard it to adjust to the circumstances and the air/ fuel mixture that will be far too lean. At 15 degrees advanced you are not gaining anything as the CPU advances even further with the high RPM\'s .Set the engine to 10 degrees advanced and let the CPU take care of the rest . You should have knock sensors and they tell the CPU to adjust the fuel and timing to prevent detonation. If you want the car to jump at the lights then fit a high torque at low rpm\'s cam. You will not have a lumpy engine but when you get to go it will go with out all the drama that you now have . The octane rating has little to do with detonation and in fact may even make it worse as the burn rate is increased slightly with out any benefit for what you want. To sum up what you have is the fuel/ air mixture igniting in the cylinder as the piston is coming up before the spark occurs. It occurs from wrong mixture ( too lean) and timing wrong and if you continue to run the engine as you are it will melt out the tops of the pistons.

Whats the make-up of the r?otating assembly


It all depends on how much pressure you intend to run the turbo or supercharger at. If you won't exceed around 12 psi, you can keep the engine stock without damaging or shortening the engine life too much. If you wanna go bigger than that, you might need to upgrade the pistons and crank. And as for compression, either a charger or turbo will do the same thing as far as the compression is concerned, so if compression is too high for a turbo, it's too high for a charger also. And I'd start checking more for upgrading the fuel system than the engine assembly parts, cause you will need more fuel in the engine to compensate for more air coming in due to turbo or charger way before you need to strengthen the engine for the extra power.

I want to put Turbo to my Golf GTI VR6 98', what changes my engine needs? it needs new pistons? it needs special gasket?..... which is better for it, Turbo or Supercharger?


the amount of money and time it would require to turn your N/A (naturally aspirated) into a forced induction car(turbocharger, or supercharger), you would require the buttom end to be built, fueling, exahust, ecu(computer) forged rods/pistons/ then the turbo or super charger, also alot more, if you go to vwvortex.com and click on the forums and look around, you can see the different setups people are running on their VW's AUDI's

Want to fit turbo to my car


how much time/money do you have?

sure it is possible, but it won't just be a mechanical solution, you will have to change all related systems to the turbo units.

the attachment of the turbo will be fairly easy... then...:

you will need to rework the exhaust
add oil supply to the turbo, a return, which means new or modified oil pan
turbo EFI system capable of feeding the turbo, may need new fuel pump as well
turbo computer (or computer hack) to understand forced induction, which may also need some sensor changes
non turbo pistons may not be sufficiently strong
...
...

yes it is possible, no it is not easy.

Hello

Are you want to take revenge. Let me know if you are.

I am not expertise in solving case for Car.

Sorry, My mistake, I take it in wrong. I think you are expertise in Computer and Hardware, So I had asked the question from you.

  • ABOUT: VL Commodore... good looking car.
1 First generation (1978–1988)
  • 1.1 VB
  • 1.2 VC
  • 1.3 VH
  • 1.4 VK
  • 1.5 VL
2 Second generation (1988–1997)
  • 2.1 VN
  • 2.2 VP
  • 2.3 VR
  • 2.4 VS
3 Third generation (1997–2006)
  • 3.1 VT
  • 3.2 VX
  • 3.3 VY
  • 3.4 VZ
4 Fourth generation (2006–present)
  • 4.1 VE

In my opinion your car is around 1978 make.

A Brief Introduction of VL Commodore:
Marking a high point in terms of sales, the last-of-the-series VL Commodore sold in record numbers, finally managing to outsell the Ford Falcon in the private sector.The 1986 VL represented a substantial makeover of the VK and would be the last of the mid-size Commodores. Designers distanced the Commodore further away from its Opel origins, by smoothing the lines of the outer body and incorporating a subtle tail spoiler. A thorough redesign of the nose saw the Commodore gain sleek, narrow headlamps and a shallower grille, while the Calais specification employed unique partially concealed headlamps.

By this stage, Holden’s 30 year old six-cylinder was thoroughly outmoded and would have been difficult to re-engineer to comply with pending emission standards and the introduction of unleaded fuel. This led Holden to sign a deal with Nissan to import their RB30E engine. This seemed a good idea in 1983 when the Australian dollar was strong; however by 1986 the once viable prospect became rather expensive. The public quickly accepted what was at first a controversial move, as reports emerged of the improvements in refinement, 33 percent gain in power and 15 percent better economy. An optional turbocharger appeared six months later and lifted power output to 150 kilowatts (200 hp). In October 1986, an unleaded edition of Holden’s carburettored V8 engine was publicised. Holden had originally planned to discontinue the V8 to spare the engineering expense of converting to unleaded. However, public outcry persuaded them to relent. VLs in New Zealand were also available with the 2.0 litre six-cylinder RB20E engine.
Negative points:

The VL suffered from some common build quality problems, such as poor windshield sealing, that can lead to water leakages and corrosion. Awkward packaging under the low bonnet meant the six-cylinder engine was especially susceptible to cracked cylinder heads, a problem not displayed on the Nissan Skyline with which it shares the RB30 engine. The Used Car Safety Ratings, published in 2007 by the Monash University Accident Research Centre, found that first generation Commodores (VB–VL) provide a "worse than average" level of occupant safety protection in the event of an accident.

I think it is sufficient information, as per your question.

Let me know if you wish to know more about your Car. (:P)
