  • billet timing tab

    Does anyone make an adjustable timing tab (hopefully billet) for an S13?

      The little needle that sticks out of the block and points at your crank pulley.

      He's looking for an adjustable one for his race engine.
      something like this: http://static.summitracing.com/globa...spe-4241_w.jpg

          Why would you want to move your timing reference? It wouldn't really mean anything when you start moving your timing reference around in relation to the crank.

            It's a very custom engine. He's running an aftermarket harmonic balancer among other things, and IIRC the metal 'needle' either keeps breaking or is in the way or something. I forget the exact reasons, but they're definitely valid for what he's trying to do with the car.

              In that case, just turn down a piece of 1/4-1/8" aluminum rod to a point and put it where ever you want on the timing cover. All you'd need is a hole and some tack welds. If you don't want to weld you could always drill and tap the cover just a few threads and use thread locker.


              Don't see what's so hard if it's really a "very custom" engine.

                Maybe it's partly because some of us aren't fortunate enough to have those kinds of tools just laying around? Plus it's the whole time= money thing. If there's one already on the shelf for $50, it's cheaper than paying for the labor to make one and stick it on there.

                  None of the tools besides a welder would be beyond what I'd consider "basic" tools when modifying a car(besides just bolting on parts).

                  You could always make a bracket that sticks off an existing bolt.
