Re: Anyone convert to V8 carb?

I was thinking today and had the thought that if the fuel pump was wired through a oil pressure switch the pump would shut off if the engine died. This would save you from washing the engine down with fuel and help solve wiring issue. Just a thought. This is a great idea in theory but you will be c...

Re: Newbie timing belt adjuster question

Hey Craig. Loosen the idler pivot bolt slightly,that's the one the spring wraps around. Next loosen the idler locking bolt which should be a 13mm head.

Re: Anyone convert to V8 carb?

For all that work and money on the regulator set up I think you would be best served to drop the tank and replace the walbro with a low pressure pump.

Re: Jeremy's Merkur "The Mutt"

Well doing some final prep for Carlisle. And the Mutt just got some new shoes! Thanks to Ted for these OZ Montecarlos. I've been looking for a decent set of 17s for a while now. These should give me a few more tire options. http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a41/jkxr4ti/Merkur/CBD1C611-8A50-4B55-9C8E-...
