    Included with the GSR head I got from CarAudiophile were seven of these:

    That's me holding one up next to the rod thingie that holds the...um...lifters in place. I can't think of what theyre called...blah.

    Anyways, I have no idea what the fuck they are. My closest guess would be wristpins, but there's seven of them. :shrug:

    Mods feel free to move this to whatever forum, I don't know what the fuck they are so I have no idea what form this should go in.

    :blink:


    edit: The head was all in pieces, so I had to put it together (or rather, put what I have of it together :angry: )...A friend of mine had a 99 gsr head that his cams locked up in (assembly lube ownz j00), and I stole everything that my head was missing from his...and there is NOTHING on the head assembly that resembles those tube thingies.

    That's the mystery part, next to my GoldenEagle LS/VTEC dowel pins. Way bigger.

    Way too big to be a tranny-block support dowel pin.


    I guess it must be a wristpin...which brings about the next question....



    Why the fuck are there seven of them?

    they look a tad small to be a wrist pin. Heres an idea, IM CarAudiophile and ask him what they are.

    Those are just the simple dingledorf shafts, they slide into the quazimuliplicator rods to help in the advancement of the naicron adjusters for the metapartical system...You only need 6 of them, I guess the 7th is a spare, so hang onto it and keep it in the docodemo pocket next to the nondemo pocket pouch near the head. They were quite rare in that era, only a few models had them. I think the manufactures were way ahead of their time when they released them to the public consumer.

    My docodemo pockets are all rusted out.

    Hey, just my 2 cents: With 1 in the middle, around the emissions shaft, and the other 6 on the outside (inside of the emissions shaft's outer radius boss) ... add a little grease... And they become Muffler Bearings !

    Clayton clearly knows nothing about engines, Steve nailed it. :lol:

    Also, a great replacement for the Jackson Rod, which needs to be replaced every 1337 miles.
