Weird fuel tank pressure problem!

Help Me !! Today, 08:13 AM
Was there a problem running at 3 psi? I don't totally understand how your fuel is plumbed. I would start with the old fuel pump if that's easy. See what you get. Replace the regulator and see what you get. If it showed pressure before with the old setup then one of the items you changed...

Lifting engine & tranny from the side?

Engine and Drivetrain Yesterday, 10:04 AM
If your garage has sturdy framing you can use a come-along and move the car, then drop the engine on to a dolly.  It makes people nervous if they haven't done any woodwork though.  You can spread the load with an extra beam.

'75 280Z Headlight Relay Upgrade

Electrical 13 Nov 2014
Tamo, I whipped up a quick sketch for the starter relay. Original design is on the left, upgraded version with the new relay is on the right. Basically you are reducing the loading current on the starter switch so you don't burn up the contacts inside:

Headlamp harness Connectors

Electrical 27 May 2015
I'm assuming the "Bosch style" is a term coined by automotive enthusiasts to describe the size, shape, and pinout of those relays. I'm not sure Bosch ever really actually made relays themselves. If forced to guess, I would assume that Bosch didn't actually make them themselves...

Source for Tail lamp harness plugs

Electrical 20 May 2015
Great. That'll provide a source for others.   Getting the contacts out of that spade connector body is pretty easy. If you managed to get those contacts out of the Ford O2 sensor, then getting the contacts out of that six position spade connector will be a breeze by comparison. Pap...

'75 280Z Headlight Relay Upgrade

Electrical 13 Nov 2014
Tamo,   Three of the four relays in that Corolla box are very common and are almost as ubiquitous as the Bosch style relays that you are using. Here's an ebay auction for the three common ones. This one happens to say Toyota on the side, but there are lots of manufacturers for this one:...

Lifting engine & tranny from the side?

Engine and Drivetrain Yesterday, 10:04 AM
When I pulled my engine for its overhaul, I pulled from the side and even left the hood installed - but I pulled it without the transmission attached.   Here are some significant points:   Pulled the radiator; Removed the carbs, alternator, starter, fan and fan clutch; Unmounted th...

Ebay and Craigslist Today, 02:23 AM
Did the vanity mirror have a cover, originally?  Seems like one of my first ones did, waaay back then.

Lifting engine & tranny from the side?

Engine and Drivetrain Yesterday, 10:04 AM
Could the motor come out from the side without all the hassle?  I've got a 3 car garage and the one in the middle is the project stall, so I would have more room from the side.   Thanks for the repiles everybody, I'm trying to figure an easier way.   I guess I could just try it and...
