    Cadillac Alternator Jumper Wire? - Need Electrical Insight

    I'm using the 2004-2007 Cadillac alternator 150AMP (GM 84009383). I'm having an issue (electrical is not my strength), but the volt meter in the cockpit will at time show a strong 14 volts then fall to about 12.5 volts and then migrate back up to about 13.5 or so (as best I can read the volt...

    Centroid Fuel Sender

    Most of us probably have the original Centroid fuel level sender in the tank. I believe the unit we have has continuous output of 2.33V empty and 0.54V full. My fuel gauge is based on ohms (240 empty and 33 full). 240/33 is the factory default setting from Speedhut for the fuel gauge (it is...

    To tune or not to tune....that is the question

    This subject may be too involved for the forum, but I thought it might be a good idea to share some knowledge about the tuning process, so I have put this together to get a dialogue started. It may go nowhere, or we may learn a lot from the more experienced among us. I’ve chose like so many, the...

    Graz & Shift Adjustment

    1. Is there a best/correct way to adjust the original shifter and the Graz tranny? I see there is an alignment hole at the tranny linkage but not certain the best way to use it, if at all, with the stock shifter? 2. I can only get back into first gear after I stop the car (aka it won't...

    LS3/480 Tune

    If anyone has an LS3/480 tune they think is really good, if your willing and able I would like to compare it to the one I have. I have the HP tuner tools and software and would appreciate anyone sharing if willing. I'm having a random stall issue that's new, but not sure where its at. Thanks

    Looking for STOCK throttle table for LS3/480

    Gents, tried the net but no luck. If anyone took a snap shot or captured the GM stock throttle table in the engine controller, would mind sharing it with me. It’s a long story, but seeing it will give me confirmation on an issue I’m experiencing with the controller. Thanks

    Stronger Starter

    The stock starter for the Graz is the Bosch SR0408X. Its a refurbished unit built for Volkswagens from 1995 - 2006 for nothing more than a 1.9L engine. Has anyone found a stronger gear reduction unit or anything better than this unit?

    SLC Car Cover

    OK, this is an odd question, but has anyone found a ready made car cover that fits over the SLC? I have a wing which is making it harder than usual. I have a couple oif car shows to attend and the cover will come in handy.

    Standard shifter - internally adjustable?

    I know many of us are less than pleased with the standard shifter, but has anyone ever played with adjusting the internal parts? Looks like there is some opportunity to adjust its movement as it exits.

    Tuner List - Share your Recommendation

    Gents After 4 tuners, it has dawned on me (a little slow I guess) that tuners are every bit as critical to our projects as hardware. I wanted to start this thread to share with all builders the good tuners we have found (so list yours as well). Tuners are typically local, unless they travel or...

    Need Verification on Fuel Tank Threads

    Gents I discovered a leak at the fitting that feeds the fuel pump from the tank (the bottom one on the tank). What type of thread did RCR use on the tank, I don't see it in my notes anywhere? I'm hoping I used the right type of adapter thread into the tank. Thanks

    Best way to adjust Grazianno shift cables?

    I have a whopping 40 miles on the car. I’m struggling with getting into first and second on a downshift. Up shifts are fine. I have the old shifter so when I set my cables on the shifter arms of the Graz, I set the shifter in as neutral a position as it would allow and the transmission in...

    Weather seal, mounted on door or body

    Got a question. I set my doors to be as flush to the mating body panels as I could get them anticipating the need for weather stripping. I purchased the type from McMaster Carr that has been suggested on the forum. In mounting the seal, I would have preferred to mount to the door versus the...

    Request a cross check on heater plumbing

    Guys Before I tear into the heater plumbing, take a look at my schematic. I can measure 140 degree heat on the engine side of the 4 way valve but on 60 on the heater side. I see the motor on the diverter valve move when I turn the switch, but it still stays cold on the heater side of the...

    Mazda Door Locks - I'm stuck

    Gents Looking for some help/thoughts on the Mazda door locks. I copied the solution suggested to design a door locking capability from the forum. However I have run into a concern. The "Z" bracket attached to top of the tumbler had to be straightened (now an L shape) to stop hitting the...

    Just pulsing the blog to see what others may have done to protect the main body area that is exposed to debris from the front wheel. By chance has anyone tried the tintable RAPTOR sprayable bed liner. Curious how it accepted color.
