    I have ordered a 50mm Vac gauge, on Amazon, and wonder if any of you have had success with carb tuning - using the 'high mercury' vac indication for setting up.. ? https://goo.gl/images/iSdXff Which part of the carb vac-pipe connection did you tap into..? 4A-F

    Part of the excitement m8..... Who knows? As this is a 'substitution/chop off stock' I only have to spend [another] £35 on a 'factory stock' box to return to normal.... 4A-F

    I have ordered some exhaust putty, good price + free pp, on eBay. Popped into Halfords Auto Centre and got 4x U-clamps for £1.60 each = cannot find any cheaper option on the web. I will have to form a bend/join - over the axle - so having pre formed bends, in the original part is an 'extra bonus' 4A-F

    Yes, it has been commented elsewhere that the 'factory' is best for street. My plan is to 'temp/bodge' the rod lift (disabled mode) by attaching a slotted arm to the rod - not unscrewing anything on the carb body - the slot in the arm will *'bite' the rod [due to the twist force] and a strong spring hooked to the arm end. This is turn on/offable for me to run at will, or not! *beetle lift jacks use the same principle to 'walk up' the jack leg. 4A-F

    Ah, the memories .... indeed I'm running a 'timewarp' '91 Carina II ..... These cars were default taxi/pizza delivery fodder 'bitd' >> then ovalled to death! I'm not going Rat or Scene.... (I'm 61!!) Just taking advantage of a bit of swappability & OldSkool mods. When I get the bus pass I'll likely move on to Mamod steam engines. lol 4A-F

    I plan the 'vac mod', to release the second choke for operation all the time, but no plans for dumping the AISIN. 4A-F

    I have just ordered a Vdubb t4 'centre box' exhaust to replace my std factory 'stuffer' box... It is 50mm and a resonator/straight thru. See how it sounds, eh 4A-F

    I understand the 4A-FE (2nd gen) had greater cam lift [7.6MM] than the dimensionally identical 4A-F Carb head. Anyone ever done a scrapyard upgrade this way.... ?? 4A-F
