first of all...the marine grade rtv....wont work on engine parts, it has no heat resistive qualities. you burned thru it real quick.
the vacuum system for the front axle works good, ive never had mine fail on the trail, i have had it fail from age and something rubbing a hole in it, but not on a trail failure. do a search for 'vacuum' and im sure you'll find many posts and some diagrams.
the weber installation is pretty straight forward im sure someone has a copy of the destructions online. golf tees make fantf*ckingtastic vacuum plugs....just cut to length. i knew there was a reason why i should not hate golf as much. take a look at this pic, it just may do the trick for guys that hafta have the factory smog hookups and still want the weber performance
sye kits, great idea, many different solutions for a common problem. tom woods has about 2 or 3 different kits available in a package deal, kits and new a driveshaft.
we just had a rather lengthy discussion of over/under cooling the last week, stick with a 195 thermostadt, im running a 180 in mine, and it still runs about 190ish
right now, im searching for a link that a guy wrote up about his weber conversion, and the vacuum stuff....im still lookin, so there is more to follow
to be continued.....
