    Time to install the tow bar


    eventually I'll get the time to build a trailer - I even have all the bits to do it - just not the time (stupid deck)

    it doesn't run, it runs.... replaced the pickup coil - now it runs. the bit is so dead simple (basically copper wire wrapped around a spool that is then dipped in resin) that I can't imagine how it could fail.... but alas, I did nothing else and it runs again.

    the offending piece




    this was a pain to get back together mostly because I read the instructions and tried it their way first


    the old bit


    next up, I'll probably put the top back on... though this weekend I may go do a run I've done before - and that'd be cool without the top.... I also have to fix my hummer.... so we'll see.

    plug reading.... at first glance, I thought I had an oil fouled plug in hole number 2.... but no, that's not oil, that's simply carbon.


    5 of the 8 plug were cracked, that plug - the fouled one - wasn't cracked... that means that 6 of 8 cylinders were misfiring, not firing at all, or having a low-voltage moment....

    time to fix a couple issues....

    so there's supposed to be a gasket under the handle - if not, paint chips... and it chipped, oil plug seal to the rescue

    and these leak.... which I thought I fixed before with silicone... nope


    gasket made

    So after the last run, there were several issues that I simply need to get addressed. one was a persistent fuel smell, another the exhaust leak, the 02 sensor (again) is acting up, and I've always thought this thing gets terrible mileage for the set up...

    I've not been a fan of the Holley replacement TBI, but it was what I had and my hope of a replacement either being found (I have one, somewhere) or found at a swap meet just wasn't happening so today I went to the wrecking yard, spent $40 on these


    the issue with the holley (the biggest issue) is the way they hold the injectors in place. GM used a bunch of screws to hold them down, the Holley just uses the air cleaner hold down.... to say it's inadequate is an understatement. It's worse thing is it doesn't stay sealed - it will do a nice spray pattern for a bit, but it will dribble and drip.


    I cleaned up the TBIs, picked what looked like the best (it's the newest) and slapped it on


    and I think the IAC is sticking, but it runs again (more messing with tomorrow)

    which brought me to an issue or two I didn't realize
    the is the old base gasket.... I think it's been leaking


    back side doesn't look bad but see how close the witness mark is to the hold-down bolt? one of the bolts has crud from where it's been leaking up the bolt.... vacuum leaks galore


    which I was all ready to take the blame for until I saw this


    Holley uses a larger butterfly, it's been hitting but what's worse is that would create a tortured path for air and fuel to flow into the motor..... and of course, vacuum leak, uncontrolled fuel entry and I am hoping that I've found the source of what's killing my O2 sensors.... we will see, first step is reconfigure the throttle cable the replace the IAC....
