    Visual Parts Location

    Post by AJracer33a on Fri Feb 10, 2012 9:52 pm

    I forget what it was called, but there used to be a site that had pics of an engine bay (both 1G and 2G) that
    showed you where parts were located on the engine. The site shut down and (to my knowledge) is still shut down. Regardless,
    I would like to make something like this here at Eat Sleep DSM.

    This is how I want it to work. First, get an engine bay shot of each car. We will use a 1G turbo DSM as the
    example. Then we make 4 quadrants in this engine bay pic. Top left, bottom left, top right, bottom right. Click the area in
    which the part you are looking for is located.

    The next page will come up. This will have a close up picture of the area you selected on the previous page.
    From here, there will be a dot on every single part that is shown in this picture. Say you click on the dot
    that is on the Cam Angle Sensor. Next page comes up, gives you a picture of the CAS, tells you what it does,
    how to diagnose problems with the CAS, how to remove/replace it, etc.

    This will be the same for every single part. This will become very useful for any member. The point of this
    on the other site was to help locate a certain part and/or if you didn't know what something was, you find it on the picture and click on it. But, it was very basic. We plan to make a little more advanced version of this.

    When something is created, there is a name given. I want to come up with a name for this that will stick. Maybe make it into a really easy to remember acronym.

    I plan to do this for a 1G turbo, 1G NA, 1G 1.8L, 2G turbo, 2G 420A, 2G 4G64, Evo IV through IX 4G63, and whatever other DSM we can. We will need people to chime in and help. If you want to use your DSM as the donor for the pics, you must have a clean, lightly modified engine bay, a good camera, and able to follow directions.

    Let me know what you guys thing about this. Also if you want to use your car as a canidate, let me know as well.

    Yeah thanks for posting this AJ because we will want to get pictures of cars that are as close to stock as possible. If you have a stock car please contact us so we can instruct you on what we need.

    My car is stock. Clean engine bay.....not so much lol. Its a very good idea. Also once it all gets figured out there should be an underneath of engine compartment view and also something along the lines of when the motor is out. Every part. Call it. DSM Anatomy. If we can get as detailed as possible with this sort of thing, I bet it would take off and alot of people will want to use it and also it could help ALOT of the intermediate guys like myself. It would be awesome if I could know where everysingle part is located in and out of my engine and transmission, and how it works, without ever having to take it apart.. Should also do something for the suspension as well. And when you click the part, should tell you how to remove it, what else needs to be removed in order to remove that part, and have a link to the other part if theres one that will need to be removed first. For electrical parts, there should be something that tells you the correct voltage or resistance that particular part should have so you can test it with a digital meter and know right away if its good or bad. I can think of alot of things that we could add to it. But we gotta get the basic layout completed first. I will be more than happy to help out with this as much as possible. I cant wait untill this is started and because I know I can really use something like this.

    Yea why stop at just engine parts? It will take some time but if we can get this very advanced, the end result will be very helpful and get us a lot of traffic here at esd. Also, i like "dsm anatomy".

    That was it! The site would be down every other week and change domains. I have about 6 different links saved in my bookmarks. Then I decided to make my own and take it further.

    There is a lot you can do to help. There is a "THROTTLE" forum on here. You can make a writeup on a specific part. If I think it is informative and helpful AND grammatically correct, I will add it. Must have pics too.

    We need to have people post pics of their cars so we can decide if they are clean enough to add to the program...

    Yes, indeed. I need several different cars to add yet. But I think I am going to finish what is already started before I make more.

    If your doing write ups on specific parts, as long as the part in the pictures are clean and not broken or missing pieces, it will work for me.
