Just bought some stuff for the samurai.

WALBRO fuel pump from www.jcwhitney.com
Gauge set (temp, pressure, vacuum, ammeter, volts, etc)

I might be making a trip to tellico this coming Wed!

Things to come:
Some bearings for the front end, valve rocker tappet thinggies, a replacement tie rod for the front (old one is rather bent!), and probably a crank key just in case. Rockrat driveshaft adapters for the yoter shaft?? Weber modifications for the steep inclines,

Wawhoo, 600 miles in my zook [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img], good thing I'll have street tires for this trip if I go.

I think I'll be removing the AC stuff for cooling efficency, I'll also be installing the fan shroud with an electric fan again for cooling efficency too.

Re: Just bought some stuff for the samurai.

Are you talking about the adjusting screw tips ? If so , the part #12848-82000 is for the Sami 8v head . They run $3+ each , but are worth the money if yours are pitted and worn . If the noise doesn't stop , or adjustment won't make it go away , get two new shafts #'s 12860-82600 (int.) , 12870-82600(exh.), and eight 12841-60A20 rocker arms . Makes a huge difference....

Re: Just bought some stuff for the samurai.

Cool, thanks for the heads up, now for the 20% off of LIST prices [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Hopefully they are not on backorder. Yap, my valves are ticking, yap, mine are nice and worn.. Weber disection soon [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Sarge, you've got weber jets correct?

Could you shoot some ##'s at me for the following:

GTI bottom end stock bore, new rings
calmini header, 2", cat, flowmaster series 40
weber 32/36 with the holes dremmeled out (the 26/28 stock holes)
Soon to be wolbro pump set to 3 psi
Unknown float (should I get the plastic, is it THAT good?)

I think I've got a 170 main and 160 sec air bleeders. I'll post my real numbers
soon.. I think I'm about 1.5~ 1.75 turns on the idle air screw..

I'll be doing the carb 180* swap and the fuel bowl vent modification too.

Note, odd thing. If I plug the PCV and all the vacuum ports, she idles bad. when I have the new pcv hooked up and the fuel evap container, idles great! Hmmm...

Still need an adjustable cam sproket, verify crank key is in 100% shape, and a real air intake setup.

Seems I *might* have a KNOCK in the eninge?!?!?! After an oil change, still the same!? 75lbs cold idle, 20 is the MIN at 900rpm hot and 70 ish hot at 2k plus. Good, bad, ugly?
Ooh, 10-30 valvoline and a PHAT filter, purilator super duper 6 dollar filter..

I need to spend some time with my sammy, I've gotten accustomed to the x-90 and electronics [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Just bought some stuff for the samurai.

I'd check that knock out real close as it could very well be that crank sprocket . Make sure to locktite that bolt but good . You need larger idle jets for sure , way too far out on the idle mix setting . That engine should land around 135-140 on the mains for fuel , probably 170/160 on air correctors . If you plug off the pcv system , check for sure you aren't losing vacuum elsewhere , such as at the base of the carb on the adapter plates . This is why I build modified intakes for folks , those plates leak pretty badly . BTW, what cam are you using?

Re: Just bought some stuff for the samurai.

The AAPA torquer cam. I've got 6 new valve tappets and one new crank key coming in on Fri. I'll have my weekend full of work [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
