The EFI works great..but now I have oil everywhere
I just swapped in an EFI. I hooked up the fuel pump.....turned the key...no clicky!! Hmmm..always wanted to do the clicky fix...assembled the relay and wires...I had forgotten to attach the lead for the starter!! Dooohhhh [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]
Hooked up the clicky fix and....vroooom!! After six months, my sammie is alive again. Now I have a huge puddle of oil on the ground!! [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] Never leaked oil before. It looks like it's coming from the front main. I will replace that, the timing belt and oil pan gasket. For pans, do most of you buy gaskets, or make them? I don"t have the air cleaner hooked up and oil was spraying out of the breather pipe off of the cover. My pcv is brand new but I'm guessing there needs to be a vacuum for it to work properly. I'm waiting on the mega flow filter from Rocky Road. Does anyone else use it? How do you like it? Does it have a vacuum hook up for the pvc? Any other guesses on what would be causing the leak?
One more item, I am still in need of a windshield frame assembly with wipers and glass. I only have the driver's side wiper and the glass is starred in several places. Itlived behind a motorhome before I got it. When the frame broke around the wiper, they cut it out and put a plastic cover over it.
Thanks again everyone. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
