  1. Thanks for the input. It does have the ability to datalog. I haven't done that, yet. I still need to change the fuel filter. I can't remember if I changed it when I did the bumper swap. If I didn't, it's been on there a while. Then I can do the datalogging. After that, I can send the info off to Affordable Fuel Injection for a different map.
  2. It wasn't having issues before the conversion. I drained the tank completely a couple of years ago for the bumper conversion, and I didn't notice much in the way of debris in the gas I drained out. Of course, when I look at the filter carefully post change, my opinion of the condition of the tank could change.
  3. Well, I tested the car this morning. It doesn't like starting smoothly, but once it got going, it ran nicely...for a while. I was going up a hill, and it started losing power, like fuel starvation. I decided to add fuel, almost 7 gallons. It drove well on flat roads (little elevation change), but on a rise a few miles later, I felt the loss of power again. The road leveled out, and I made a right turn. Again, under load, it didn't have enough fuel. I'm going to change the fuel filter and increase the pressure a little on the fuel rail. I have also started researching surge tanks just in case.
  4. I remember looking at snowmobile throttle cables a few years back. Those looked promising to me.
  5. I have a set still in the box I could sell you for $999.49 (less than $1000) 😉
  6. On the northwest side of Lake Lanier Yes, on http://fiddlingwithzcars.wordpress.com and https://georgiazclub.wordpress.com/2016/06/12/making-new-memories-284-photos/ No, I don't sell them. I bought mine from Group Harrington.
  7. If you want to see the stainless steel bumpers in person, I have them on both of my cars, and I'm within a decent driving distance.

  10. To be specific - Use a threaded plug with a good coating of anti-seize. Otherwise, it's likely that you are still welding up the O2 bung. I'm pretty sure I used anti-seize on the bung for my headers, and I still had a bear of a time removing the plug.
  11. Between 2 & 3 - Coat the area to be soldered with a good flux. That will help the solder adhere to the wire.
  12. Where exactly is this in the wiring harness? I can't make it out with the close-in shot. By the way, great job on the perseverance. You're representing your generation well. Edit: Wait, I'm taking that it's at the fusible link. So that branch wasn't getting full current due to the corrosion. When it got the extra load, the voltage would drop.
  13. These numbers seem high to me. The resistance across wire runs should be very low. You may want to validate your readings. Keep in mind that the quality of the probe with the wire being measure can greatly affect your readings. Make sure you have very firm contact on each side of the circuit.
  14. I got 6AN to 1/8 NPT fittings to replace the barb fittings on the TBI adapters. I could not put the back throttle body fitting at the angle I wanted because it was hitting on the base of the adapter before it was to the point I wanted, so I compromised. It looks a little kludged, but it doesn't leak. (If it looks stupid but it works, it's not stupid.) I also purchased a Walbro GSL395 fuel pump. This fuel pump is rated up to 20 PSI and is targeted for GM TBI systems. In other words, it's a good application. In addition, it takes male 10mmx1 fittings, so I got it with 6AN to 10mm fittings. After that I put 90 degree elbows on the inlet and outlet and 5/16 to 6AN fittings on the elbows to go to the fuel lines. I was able to orient the pump so the inlet is on the bottom, like it should be. I got the fuel pressure set, and I got a smooth idle, though it is at 1200 RPM. Now I have to test. That might have to wait until Tuesday, though.
  15. @Usain_Boat- This is the thread @wal280zis referring to
