Revisiting Emulators
« on: February 14, 2018, 11:16:59 pm »
Yea I know it's been discussed way back when, but after reading them , I'm a little confused at some answers. In one it says to drill the emulator from 2 hole to 4, ? Are you talking the actual emulator or the emulsion tube that the emulator sits on top of. Was thinking of cutting stock spring on my 03 4 1/2 inches & installing spacer & adding emulator. 

Thanks ,

There's also an option to drill holes in the emulator blowoff plate:

I just put Race Tech springs and emulators in this winter. The emulators I received already had 4 holes drilled in them from the factory.  Each damping rod gets 2 more holes drilled all the way through. I included a picture of the damping rods modified and unmodified.

The extra holes in the blow off plate are to aid low speed compression damping. because there's not real rebound damping (done by oil weight, around 30 wt) there needs to be a way to soften the low speed compression damping. High speed damping happens when the valve blows open. HTH, Steve

Thanks , shame the pictures don't show up

If you click on the photobucket hosting place holder thing, it will take you to the photo...
Or you can download a patch for Chrome that allows the pics to shsow, but simply clicking the photo placeholder still works...
