Banjir di Sudirman…

Bagi yang belum sempat lihat foto foto banjor di Sudirman.. ini beberapa fotonya…

Ketika Banjir datang, Saatnya Land Rover Keluar Kandang :)

Banjir besar tahun ini mengingatkan saya pada banjir besar yang juga pernah mampir di Jakarta beberapa tahun yang lalu, dan sayapun mendapatkan foto foto berikut ini…

Mendung menyelimuti Jakarta

Banjir mulai dari Malam menyebabkan kemacetan panjang

Dan Besok paginya Land Rover pun keluar kandang, dengan maksud menolong teman yang terjebak banjir :)

Banjir di Sudirman..? dengan mudah dilalui..
Akhirnya mencoba Green Ville yang kebetulan ada teman yang terjebak
Hati sudah mulai deg- deg-an karena air mulai dalam…
Dan semakin dalaaammm…
Dan disinilah Land rover akhirnya tak kuasa meneruskan… 1:0 untuk Banjir :)
3 korban banjir :D. Dibelakan pasukan anak dibawah umur dipekerjakan untuk mendorong Landy
Diperlukan waktu satu jam untuk menguras air di mesin dan Land rover inipun akhirnya bisa jalan pulang…

Demikianlah kenang kenangan bajir beberapa tahun lalu…
Stupidity : 10
Fun : 10
Cost: 250.000 for oil change

Apa yang dilakukan Landy yang sama saat banjir tahun ini…? Stay tuned :)

Cara Hitung karburator Land rover

Nah akhirnya ada jawaban juga kenapa karburator landy suka sesak nafas :)

To All Series Owners,

Some of you may have seen the “Power Feed” article in the Summer
Issue of LROI. A lot of good data was edited for space considerations so I
thought you might like to see the missing parts. Print this one out and
stick it into your magazine as a companion. Enjoy!

Here’s the part that tells you how to figure CFM requirements for
any engine at any speed.

CFM=3D rpm X displacement
____________________ X volumetric efficiency
3456

Lets break the formula down.
RPM: Usually the maximum rpm of the engine is used here but you can
plug
in any engine speed.
DISPLACEMENT: In cubic inches, the size of the engine.
3456: This is a constant that converts the upper figure to CFM at 1.=
5″
of merc.
VOLUMETRIC EFFICIENCY (VE): This is the engine’s theoretical
ability to
breathe versus it’s actual ability as measured in real life. VE vari=
es
according to engine speed. It’s higher at the engines maximum
torque (a
low speed) and lower at the engines max power (a high speed). A low
performance engine like the 2286 would have a 75% VE at max power
and an
80% VE at max torque.

Plugging in the four-cylinder numbers would look like this.

4250 rpm X 139.5 cid
128.6621 CFM=3D _____________________ X 0.75
3456

If you compare this figure to the tested ratings of the stock
carburetters, you’ll find they match fairly closely. If you run one of
these engines, you will also know from personal experience that the engine
is definitely breathing hard above 3500 rpms. A slightly larger carb can
enhance upper rpm performance.

RE: Oil Bath Air Filters

The original oil bath air cleaner has the theoretical airflow to
keep up with the engine. In practice, I have felt a big gain in power by
eliminating it. I was in a quandary on this question until Earl Davis,
K&N’s dyno guru, explained a possible reason.
“It isn’t just raw airflow capacity, ” he said, “it’s also
velocity. If the air cleaner is slowing the velocity of the air, it could
effect performance.” Earl noted that the 90 degree elbow and corrugated
hose might have a deleterious effect and recommended trying a smooth hose
and an elbow with a shallower radius and/or moving the radius farther away
from the carb by about 3-4 inches.
Some owners have reported adapting the factory oil bath filter to
the big Weber two-barrels and claim good results. I have to reserve
judgement on this, having tested the combo with very poor results. At
3800rpm the engine fell flat on its face due to lack of airflow. Mike
Pierce reported similar results when he was developing his Weber 2-barrel
kit. Obviously, these folks never rev the engine much above 3500.

Some Test Data They Didn’t Print

To save your calculator some wear and tear, I’ve run the figures for a 2286
from 2000 to 5000 rpm. Compare these figures with the airflow tests of the
various carbs, manifolds and air filters.

2286cc Theoretical Airflow Requirements
Engine RPM CFM
2000 1 64.6
2500 1 (peak torque) 80.7
3000 1 96.7
3500 2 105.9
4000 2 121.1
4250 2 (peak power) 128.7
4500 2 136.2
5000 2 151.4
1- At 80% volumetric efficiency
2- At 75% volumetric efficiency

My First Landy

I am a Landrover enthusiast, a land rover series lover… love it because its a very basic car (it just slightly modern than horse cart :)… ), You can easily understand how it works ( it broke down a lot though), its tough… and its cheap too… :) so that is to conclude why I love it…

This Post is to start my post about landrover series in this blog…

and here is my very first land Rover…

I bought it around Rp.15 mio (US$ 1.500) looks tough isn’t it..? I call it “Kuya” means turtle… because it can go anywhere but very slooow.. :), have loads of fun with it…

Sadly this LandRover is now dead (defunc). My “trusted” mechanic who take care of this car, actually selling it’s parts without me knowing it… but as we all know… It is never over in a Land Rover, his body parts and soul now support my other landrovers…

Few Pictures of my now defunc Kuya…

At Tangkuban Perahu Bandung
Relax after light off road at camp

Will add some more if I can find the old picts..
