  1. Jeff, the vac advance problem is easily solved, You can take manifold vacuum and run it via a solenoid controlled by a micro switch on the throttle, what you are looking for is to cut off the vacuum at idle. it will simulate ported vacuum just fine. been there, done that, worn off the t shirt.
  2. The only thing/s that don't look good on/for me....are snowflakes.
  3. Dear Jeff, who is teaching you all these nonsense ignition theories? Tell you what, Got whatsupp on your phone? +19402069747, afternoons, pacific time. I'll sort it for you. No need to thank me, its painful (to me) to see yah fighting with it, for god's sake, take something simple as pouring wizz out of a boot and over complicate it by a factor of 100.
  4. 1:10 Rookie mistake #1 Never ever drain the oil before removing the fill plug.
  5. There is no reason to reinvent the wheel, the car came from the factory with mounts for a 3 point seat belt, mounting a set of universal belt is quite easy, you will need a few longer bolts and spacers to mount the reels, the bolt size BTW is 7/16 fine thread. if there is interest I can take pics of mine.
  6. Well....look at the bright side, you now have a spare LH (not passenger)door handle now. BTW, that break is classic, if anyone attempts to open the door while its locked it will break every time. Happened to me more then a few times..
  7. Just swap the handles left to right!, you dont need to get a new one.
  8. Good idea....the last thing Jeff wants to do is to pull it out one the dash is installed.
  9. A word regarding electric vs mechanical fuel pumps. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the mech pump, throw what you want at it, dcoe 45? no problemo So why electric? there is one and only one reason, in my particular case, I incorporated it into the security system, in other words unless you know the secret hand shake ......the perp will be stalled in 50 feet or so with no fuel. Regadess, and as been my experience a few weeks ago I have been driving the 240 and it died about 1/4 mile from my house as if its out of gas, which it wasn't, reluctantly I have suspected the supply hose/s at the fuel tank, both were 100% original and super brittle, both got replaced.....yet the problem remained. finally, I replaced the hose from the fuel rail (100% original)(pass side fuel rail to the fuel pump) and that did the trick. Moral of the story: Don't wait 45 year+ to replace any flexible rubber fuel lines, the factory stuff may last that long (not) ..but aftermarket?
  10. Dear jeff, don't worry about the return right now, if you can make it it work, great, if not no sweat. Fuel pressure should be kept bellow 5psi, 3.5 for the street is more then required. go ahead and try it without the reg, Manufacturers do not always "tell the truth" a 6 psi pump can easily translate to 4 psi in real life. You will have more then a fun time tuning it for the street, good luck with that. Hoping for you it will not be an (overly) costly project.
  11. 4:27 that is the pcv outlet.a hose connects to the pcv valve in the intake.
  12. To each his own, refer back to post #401. You have those who been doing it for 30 years + and those who are too busy talking how it doesn't work.
  13. Its not supposed to be funny. The brakes are not the same, you get more pad material=more clamping area=better braking As the front brakes do %75 of the work, the bias front to rear is negligible. you would know that if you ever tried it.
  14. A son comes to his father and asks for help with homework, Dad, I was given an assignment to explain the difference between theory and reality. The dad thinks about it for a minute and tells his son to ask his mother if she will be willing to sleep with the neighbour for $100, the son returns and reports the answer is a loud "NO", the father sends the kid to ask the same question to his older sister, the son return with the same results....the father now sends the kid to ask the same question yet up the price to $1000000...the kid returns with an "I guess" answer. The father responds: you see son, in theory we are millionaires yet in reality we have two whores in the house. Badabing. If you don't get it....no worries, you wont get it.
  15. Are you speaking from personal experience zed head? Somehow I doubt it. I have installed many dozens of toy calipers over the years as well as on my personal cars. all work perfectly well without any other mods. Here is how one knows when the brakes are out of bias, one axle will lock before another, not the case here. If you have any evidence to the contrary please present it....otherwise you do know what they say about opinions right?
