Small projects

Posted November 15th, 2010 at 11:03 PM by Jeff W

While the car is at the paint shop I will be busy repairing and painting all the little things that will get bolted back on.

Two little projects below:

1) The little return spring is broken on my drivers inside door latch pivot (Picture below) Steve @ the doghouse is searching his junk pile for a good mechanism. I can't see an easy way to remove that spring and have not found a source for replacements.

2) The other picture is of the drivers side "splash...

Intake Air Temp and Injector Harness

Posted October 28th, 2010 at 09:45 PM by pbrown

The wiring is nearly finished. The EFI portion of the wiring is done. I'll also be rewiring some older wire and some of the factory wire.

This EFI system is a bank-to-bank setup. This means that there are two injector drivers - four injectors on each circuit. My injector harness connects to the main harness with a four wire Weatherpack connector. There whole thing is wrapped in harness tape.

I needed a place to mount an air temperature sensor. In the EFI world this is...

The Intake Is On

Posted October 10th, 2010 at 06:13 PM by pbrown

The first attempts looked great but didn't work so well due to excess flex. 16g steel is not strong enough. The second attempt works great. I used the first bracket as a templete for the the new one. I made it out of 1/8" steel plate. It is painted black and hanging to dry right now. I'll put it on tomorrow.

I installed the intake manifold today. It's looking...
