So it’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog, This is a recent image of the progress, had the engine turning over last night just couldn’t get a spark from the coil, suspect it is an earthing problem.
But so close I can taste it.
Do expect a video in the next few days.
After pulling a few strings I can gladly say progress is being made!
Carbs and Manifold is about to be sorted by Chris,
A good chap named David is gonna help me tackle the wiring :D
So big thanks to them.
Mockup on my spare 4ag of manifold and plugs.
I have accumulated injector port plugs, and a fuel pump so there is only really 3 more pieces to the puzzle being:
Fuel Pressure Regulator
There is one mountain I have to climb before I can begin to learn and progress with my e7.
I really wish that I was capable to fabricate my own stuff to solve my own problems instead of constantly relying on people.
At the moment the problem is that the carbs and manifold do not like each other very well, the throttle wheel does not clear the manifold and the manifold pulls the carbs too far apart for the linkage to be effective. I mean it’s not a hard solution, it could be solved by extending the tab on the linkage, and relocating the throttle wheel but oh wait it requires welding.
Sorry Stan you can’t solve your own problem fffffff, other options would include relinking it with a kit that costs $$$ that I don’t have.
And once I solve this problem I just have another one ready for me his name is wiring.
I just want to drive my car now pleaseeeee,
Upon my outing at the GT86 Release I was amongst many great people and great cars,
It’s funny yet sad that I feel no real major hype over the new 86. Although I do dig how some people have styled them such as the 666 one.
Any way’s just as we decided to leave I saw rolling from a distance, a very familiar chassis, yep definitely was one I owned myself. It was relatively low, but not low enough to get annihilated at the speedbumps, the front wheels were aligned with negative camber that was a bit too excessive for everyday street cars which was a very good clue indeed.
For those who don’t recognize this, it’s the Teamblink SR powered e7.
There’s been a few action photos of this machine going at it surfing around the interwebs recently. Gave me a little kickpush in motivating myself a little more to getting my car where I want it to be.
