    Storm on the Horizon

    Alive an well Ian. Thanks for asking. We were most fortunate the initial hurricane track projections were wrong. Sadly, the devastation to the Bahamas appears to be horrible. Here is what we were facing last week vs how it turned out. As Walt indicated, hopefuly the track change to the Carolinas...

    Keith

    I'm not here too often these days but was truly saddened to hear of Keith's passing. I've enjoyed his posts, insights and his tenure as a fair minded moderator. Thanks to Ian for positing the details of his service. Keith seems to have had a life well lived and an intriguing personal history. It...

    GT40 Avenger

    You can apparently do a lot with these. This is a local car that has a blown engine and Oldsmobile Toronado trans. It's proabably just the thing for a soon to be organ donor though.

    Warch the trailer--are you going to see Ford v. Ferrari? here's a review just of the trailer

    I'm not sure how you determined RUSH "tanked". It earned $26.9 million in domestic box office, $71.3 million in international box office, with a worldwide gross of $98.2 million against a budget of $38 million.

    GT40 Avenger

    Mike, They had a number of these locally at one time and some were stunning cars. I think they had a plant in Miami. You can do a lot with a VW air cooled engine and 150 horsepower is not out of the question. Some also used Corvair engines but I suspect they are pretty scarce as are their...

    Ford v. Ferrari trailer

    Matt Damon is certainly a stretch but at least it's not Tom Cruise who was talked about in the Shelby role initially. They got the Dan Gurney casting pretty close though . Apparently it will be his son Alex. I also hope they give Phil Remington his due.

    A whole set of questions.

    Many use the Ford Cortina - will probably need 1/2" cut off each end. Seats:

    CAV GT Fuel vapor

    Check behind the right wheel well. Some of the early bladders tend to seep there. I replaced my cells with updated Fuel Safe cells and put in check valves in the filler necks. Absolutely no fuel smell.

    Show me your fuel pumps please! - Carb fed engines

    Julian are you using an air/fuel-ratio meter? If it's stumbling at WOT, assuming the fuel filters (there are also some on the pumps) are clean and it may be that you could adjust the fuel pressure via the Malpassi/Filter King unit.

    Show me your fuel pumps please! - Carb fed engines

    The Facet Red Tops have worked fine for me. The 480532E Gold-Flo is factory rated at 8.0 - 6.5 PSI and 45GPH. The Holley Double Pumper (650, 700, 750, and 800 CFM) are designed to work best at fuel pressures between 5 and 7 psi. Holley recommends 7 psi at idle, and a minimum 4 psi at engine...

    Show me your fuel pumps please! - Carb fed engines

    If the system has been working reliably unil now, check your fuel pump switch. On one side of the tertiary switch mine passed enough amperage to get the pump clacking away but not enough to get the 6PSI the carb needed. The other side was fine. Finally tracked it down to a spring in the Lucas...

    Connector Identification

    Thank you for the responses. I've found lots of spade collectors but none with the thick clear vinyl cover that waterproofs the connection (my middle pic). An internet search indicates several in the UK and I've placed an order there.

    Connector Identification

    Does anyone know what brand of electrical connector this might be and where I may obtain replacements?
