  1. 2018 ZCON Information

    Tell her you need to come up for the Mitty in April as a test run. By the way, my wife will be compiling a list of shopping places for conference attendees who may not be as interested in Z cars as the rest of us.
  2. 2018 ZCON Information

    Also, the website is live. http://www.zcon.org We'll be updating things as we get them solidified.
  3. Here's the latest update: All - ZCON 2018 host hotel will be at the Sonesta. In order to book your hotel, you may use the following link and Group Code. They promised to simplify the code after the new year, but this one works so you can get your hotel now. The event is October 16-20 in Atlanta, GA - the website is www.ZCON.org. Event registration will go live 1/1/18. Get booked now within the room block for $105/night with free parking and free wifi included. We've extended the group-block two days before and after the event for those coming in earlier or wanting to enjoy the area after the event. https://gc.synxis.com/rez.aspx… USE BOOKING CODE: 10166823ZC
  4. I was looking for it. I thought I might have left it there.
  5. Count your blessings that you found it there and not like this.
  6. Any advice on bleeding the clutch

    Are you following the attached procedure?

    Here's a link: http://www.atlantafalcons.com/fan-experience/fan-promotions.html. You can go to Kauffmantire.com and sign up for their promotions. I haven't had issues with getting the discounts in the past. I know that during baseball season, the stores tend to get crowded on the day after the Braves get a home run in the 4th inning for that promotion. While it may be quite a bit of driving to go to Canton, $120 is quite a bit to save on tires. I don't know much about the tire stores in Dalton or Chatsworth. NTB and Discount Tire have locations in Cleveland, TN & Chattanooga. That's less of a drive but without the opportunity for promotions. Otherwise, you're looking at something like Walmart. They have a surprising inventory of lower priced tires, though I can't vouch for longevity, quality, or competence of mounting/balancing.

    That sets your price at about $60/tire plus road hazard, mounting & balancing, tire disposal fees, and tax. Unfortunately for you, there isn't a Kauffman Tire near you. The closest one is in Canton. They have frequent discounts based off the performance of the Hawks(maybe), Falcons, and Braves. For instance, the Falcons scoring in all 4 quarters merits a $120 if you order your tires the next day. The caveat is that it could require a prepayment and two trips down to Canton.

    So what is your budget for tires? That will drive most of the selection for you.

    By the way, I can install the latch at my house. Is the striker plate in good shape?
  11. Jai's Status

    It's the same 70-76. The 77 had the new design. What size are the tires?
  12. Im at wits end please help

    The FSMs are in the downloads section. I have it linked in my signature. You can see my signature if you're not on a mobile device. @Newzowner You might want to say were you live. There may be a knowledgeable member close enough to you that could help. You don't have to suffer alone.
  13. Regulator / Gauge - Do I Need It?

    I am just curious. Why did you go with an electric fuel pump? Did you use an oil pressure switch or inertia switch to cut off power in case of an accident? You can find the fuel pressure range needed in the EF section of the FSM. Before you buy a regulator, you might try installing a fuel pressure gauge. You can get a fluid filled gauge from Amazon at a reasonable price: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CIH38M You'll also need an adapter for the gauge. This is one for regular fuel line: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00093CL3M After that, if you need a FPR, and I doubt you will, here is one. You'll need 3/8 NPT to 5/16 barbed fittings, too. I also recommend getting fuel-resistant teflon tape. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00029JC6M
