General Chat / sooo hard.......why?!!
« on: 20:28, Fri 03 April 2009 »
treated the car today to new ht leads, fuel filter, dizzy cap and arm and spark plugs. i was gonna do the oil and filter but i'll do that another day with mobil super s 10/40.
anyway, everything was very easy until i got to getting the old spark plugs out!!!! they didnt want to budge....i even snapped the tool. in the end i got a long wrench which worked but there was only one that was easy to unscrew. the others felt really tight and it was tight putting the new ones in. the old plugs were very black and sooty, is that about right???
 took it out for a spin and it was going well, then when i put my foot down i felt a slight missfire. got home and there was coolant over the front bumper???!!!! had a look and the altanator had put a slit in the pipe that runs from the top of the expansion tank to the black circle thing lol.
 another thing to do. still one of the most fun cars ive had tho.

this is my first one. so far its pretty good, its running 15psi. it has a few problems tho hopefully you guys can help
1. crunches when going into 5th
2.idles between 1000-2000rpm, stays about 1300 most of the time then hunts. checked for air leaks.
3.feul gauge stays at 1/4
4. front lights turn off then on when youve had the lights on for a bit
also i have random wires in the engine bay, but im gonna buy a haynes manual and see if it helps. car drives really well so im not that bothered. the fan is on a switch, which i find annoying!

spec is-
k-tec fmic
twin dump valves

cone air filter
lowered
k-tec front bumper
badboy bonnet and a bonnet scoop(which i really dont like!)
