  1. Today
  2. Yesterday
  3. It looks like a rivet holding the other one on there, but it may be part of the vent just folded back to look that way. It's all metal, maybe I'll try to tack weld it .... the material of the vent probably isn't going to take well to it though
  4. Not sure how to make that happen from my iPhone videos. I can send the video via text can you post it?
  5. Imgur allows video uploads, should be able to upload it there and paste the direct link here.
  6. Anyone willing to post the video . Says 120MB but will exceed 500MB.
  7. https://imgur.com/a/1EcWp7r Finally got the chads intake and exhaust along with the Tdo6h 25g running . Trying to post the small vid running thru gears 1- top of 4th, little fun.
  8. Well, good news, if you've been away for 15 years, you only missed about 9, because we lost all the posts from the last 6... It's nice to have the site back up, though, and it's been fun to see old names show up. Welcome back.
  9. Yep, that's probably a job for epoxy... Or eBay
  10. Hey there. Just popped onto the site to lurk as I do a time or two every year and got caught up. Figured I’d post to say hi and catch up. Can’t recall the last time I posted. I retired from the PD in 2019. Great career, 21 years total 17 in special operations between Bomb, Swat, K9. I unwittingly retired right before all hell broke loose. No regrets there! I work still, got a sweet job with a company that builds cell towers. Family is great. 2 kids are out of the house, 3 left at home for a bit. We were supposed to go to Ireland in 2021 for our 25th Anniversary, and we’ll you know how that went. Current cars include a Land Rover LR4, BMW Z4, pickup, motorcycle, I bought an 06 Mini 5speed a few months back to have something fun for winter months when the nice cars are in storage. The Mini is fun as hell. Still have a mint 89 Quest hood complete with heat shields hanging in my shop!
  11. Got three uncracked Exhaust Manifolds available from the ones pictured. One unfortunately appears to have been repaired previously.
  12. I believe I was getting fuel over this past year ( i have around 50 logs with megaviewer ) , I would be more curious if the fuel is shot, but since the other folks destroyed my wiring with digital meters (ripped wires out), that wasn't hooked up I couldn't tell. Basically trusted the other mechanics who I paid money for to make sure all was working So megasquirt and all its goodness was starting scratch. I think in the end something flowed through the line and or got picked up weeks back. I'll be taking apart the pump area for inspection both electrical and lines. I'll follow up Thanks, Oh, yes I will probably purchase a new pump next, TPS, IAT, CLT, RPM, coil firing now, since I took the deep nose dive to help myself and solder the right way. Cross my fingers and fuel is last, hate to be cheap but why I was looking for a good fuel distribution as I see prices from 40 to 400 as why I'm asking for opinions on hardware.
  13. That looks like a job for Mr. J.B. Weld
  14. Last week
  15. Any suggestions on re attaching this bracket piece to the pillar vent?
  16. I had a similar problem recently. My car has been sitting for about 4 years after blowing the motor. I finally got it running again. I wasn't seeing any fuel at the throttle body when jumping the fuel pump with the connection under the hood. I disconnected the lines from the tank and at the throttle body, then I was able to fill the lines with Seafoam and blow it through with compressed air. After that I reconnected the lines and set up a catch can under the hood and jumped the pump. Fuel came gushing out, so there was some sort of blockage that came loose from the compressed air and Seafoam. Might be something worth trying.
  17. Been 4 years in a MPI build, 1 shop had it for 2.5 years another for 6 months, now I'm on it for a year debugging. Think I'm close, but weeks back after cranking to get it turned over, I heard a loud winding noise, and gas we slighly pouring out of the back or at the bottom of the tank. Now no fuel pressure, was only advised it probably got clogged and it burnt out. I did get it many years back from TopEnd, I see they are still there but don't know if they have them (290.00). Any replacement offerings on external pumps recomendations? MPI build is up to 400 hp approach.
  18. For just having the toe set I could probably get away at no charge, but not once he figures this out lol. It wouldn't be surprised that he knows already, he is a front end repair guru.
  19. Yes they will! I remember the first time i had mine aligned many years ago and they took hours before finally coming to me and saying the parts on it weren't OEM. I had to show them how to do it. Just couldn't wrap their heads around adjustment only on one side.
  20. This thing won't see a ton of miles or inclement weather so I am not too worried about them not being greaseable. I was disappointed to learn that the passenger side has to be removed to make any adjustments to the tie rod. I ball parked them and tossed them on and discovered this when i went for the tape measure alignment(really should have been obvious). So I did all the adjustment to get it drive able on the drivers side and my steering wheel is all crooked. My alignment guy will love it.
  21. Glad you got your exhaust in. Back in the mid 2000s myself and my buddy who owns a muffler shop in Montana built from scratch a 2 1/2" downpipe back exhaust.Then a couple of years later I installed D-2 coilovers adjusted all the way down. Always on the look out for speed bumps, deep dips and never park on dry grass. 😉 Bill
  22. You could probably do it without a press. It's SOOO much easier with one though. I bought this a few years back and has worked like a charm for many jobs. I also have a normal shop press. https://www.amazon.com/Orion-Motor-Tech-Replacement-Automotive/dp/B01FLVOAZI/ref=sxin_14_pa_sp_search_thematic_sspa?cv_ct_cx=wheel+bearing+press&keywords=wheel+bearing+press&pd_rd_i=B01FLVOAZI&pd_rd_r=f29ee619-4af3-4c74-9d8a-e140fba32ac4&pd_rd_w=GgkMM&pd_rd_wg=9taxh&pf_rd_p=4ad71b32-b810-4124-8735-d02a39478d0c&pf_rd_r=3JTMYEH43EGQQNF39KEN&qid=1642350651&sr=1-1-a73d1c8c-2fd2-4f19-aa41-2df022bcb241-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExVURRQTVVU0JXUERHJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMDc0NzY5RjVaVzdRUDAwNFAwJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA4ODU5NjkyN1VXWk1SNk9FSjQ3JndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3Bfc2VhcmNoX3RoZW1hdGljJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
  23. That's a bummer! Pretty sure mine are all Moog and I know they have the grease fittings
  24. Really? I found that most of the time there's a bolt installed where the grease fitting goes. Up to you to find the fitting. Other option is to drill/tap and install fittings yourself
  25. Everything showed up and is correct, I am a little disappointed that neither the mevoteck or the Moog parts are greaseable. Next stop alignment shop!
