Curious as to what people use to access the Forums. Looking to make it easier (if possible) for everyone.
Thanks for your vote.

WooHoo!  I'm glad to see all my photobucket pictures are back.  I don't know when that happened but I gather Photobucket decided charging everyone for their service wasn't working out.   :)
Fuel Systems. / Re: Fuel Injection Conversion

The kit comes with an inline electric fuel pump.  However, in reading the reviews from mainly Jeep guys who have used the kit, they said the fuel pump was very noisy and they recommended one that is available on Amazon, which is what I ended up going with.  I can still hear it a little bit, but not too bad.  I'm still loving the kit, I took the car into the mountains about a month ago and it performed great.  As I said earlier, one of the nice things about this kit is the computer controls the spark advance also, which is really handy when I go higher in altitude.

I will definitely be looking into this upgrade. My chinese knockoff motocraft 2150 worked great compared to the Carter. I just know the prior owner never maintained it properly. I think Fuel Injection is the best way to go for better power and reliability.
Thanks for the tip.
Almost forgot. what fuel pump did you use? factory mechanical or higher pressure electric?

Don't know if you're still considering seat covers from these guys...  I got an email from them that they are having an 'Early Black Friday' sale this week: 20% off and free shipping.  Use the code 'EARLYBIRD' at checkout.

That is an "all the way around the block to get next door" method. From his own admission that whole project was just to do it to prove it can be done thing.

The rear is easily lifted with springs, shackles, or blocks, no need to go to that much effort back there.

The concept of dropping the IFS is simple, it's the design of new control arms that is the most challenging part. I was hoping someone would chime in that had done it and maybe had a cad drawing of the parts designed to aid in building the parts needed.

Yup; we've all made lots of bonehead moves over the years.   I'd give y'all some of my examples, but I'd be typing for days.............but every goof makes you a better mechanic going forward!

Well it’s out. It wasn’t seized on the input shaft. I went underneath and took off the bolts on the flywheel and it still didn’t come out. Turns out that I missed the bolt on the drivers side engine mount to the front diff.  :banghead:
Don't feel bad. Years ago, I put a new engine in a Mustang SVO I used to own and decided to put a different camshaft in it after installing the engine. The cam shaft retainer is on the back of the head and tough to get to when installed in the car. Well, I dropped one of the retainer's screws right down an oil galley. I had to pull the engine back out to drop the pan to get the screw out.  :banghead:
