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....

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.. ?

Which part of the carb vac-pipe connection did you tap into..?

..... there is a vacuum tap-off pokes straight out of the inlet manifold - facing my bulkhead - and will give steady vac.

The dizzy is 'ported vac' so not steady for full range required.

Gauge should be here over next few days.... Really looking forward to some timing & carby tinkering :)

My silicone vac pipe tube [4mm & RED!] just arrived so I'm not short of anything for the tuneup/overhaul.....

Just it's Winter.... And damn frosty :-(

I robbed a part out of an MR2 column stalk to fix my own 'turn flasher' switch. The indicator had been Bzz Bzz Bzzzz - but not flashing - on right turn, so I stripped the switch apart and found the little slider worn smooth... Swapped fresh MR2 slider in and reassembled my dash.

Great fix... No parts exist(cheep£££) so it has to be spares/robbed.

Cool as a.... Fosters at the barbie, m8 :)

That is a common misconception mate, we don't drink Fosters, i personally haven't seen anyone drink it since the early 80's, let alone seen it for sale in bottle shops.

I drink a fair amount of it 😂 it's in a few bottle shops near me. Actually tastes like beer and not water like great northern etc.. Oldies give you a bit of shit for drinking it however.

Hows the tuning going?

I have seen a few of the old timers do it with a vac gauge, never really took much notice of it as I prefer to use a wideband o2.

Those wheels suit the sedan shape perfectly. I'd love a sedan that shape with a 20v in it.
