DAMPER POWER/MANUAL STEERING

Maybe save it as a jpeg or other image format. I dont think placing a .pdf inline is possible. It could contain several pages.

Skimming the inlet manifold.

Hi folks. It has taken me a while to find the source of my rough idle. Spraying some gas under the thermostat housing causes a change of engine note and will make it cut out if i spray enough. So it seems when i did the head/inlet manifold gasket a while back it did not seal correctly. I was very ca...

38DGAS carb inlet pinning

I found a similar problem with a fuel pump too so well worth pinning them while you are at it. I guess the fuel pump is not as bad as it will just spill down the front and not pool on the top of the inlet manifold. I used jbweld and a good tap of a hammer to fix it in place.
