I could run them off on my mill if you're just talking about 1 or two and can live with mailing me the blanks and paying for the return mail. PM me if you can't find a local option.

Not at the price they are asking. I was working on my own using an arduino microcontroller, but had to set it aside before getting it done to focus on other things on my 40. Should get back to it...

Oh yes, you have to. If you dead head the FPR at the rail, the only fuel flow you get is what you are currently consuming at the injectors, and that's not enough to keep them cool.

I'm not sure what...

Jet Hot manifold coating or alternatives?

So I'm thinking about doing Jet Hot on my exhaust manifold and turbo down pipe for heat retention purposes. The last time I did this was a very long time ago, and the results were initially good, but...

It was another "while I'm in there" decision. I made the tank before moving out to CO in 95. But a few years ago I decided I wanted to Line-X it along with some other parts. So I decided to cut the...

I'm beginning to think you didn't fall off the turnip truck yesterday when it comes to MFI conversion on vintage auto's :)

So I pondered the tank venting issue a lot. I originally wanted to put a...

Thanks, it's been a classic case of mission creep. I think I've now run out of things to do "while I'm in there". Plus I hope to be able to join you guys in Moab next year if I can, so now I have a...

Good question. As I'm sure you know MFI requires a high pressure pump, and those don't last very long unless they are effectively cooled by being immersed in fuel. So I built this tank with an...

Here's how the intercooler tucked in. I was really surprised and pleased at how well this one fit with minimal fuss. I had to move the radiator over a tad to clear the FJ62 steering box anyway, so...

That's the thing, you can't go back without replacing everything. Freon uses mineral oil. R134 requires PAG oil.

PAG oil is lighter. Lay it on top of mineral oil, everything works because the...

A/C Conversion

Two things to keep in mind - A system designed for R12 will not perform as well as it did when filled with R134, and you can't go back without replacing everything if you find yourself less than...

Yup, that looks like mine right down to the Ferd shock tower. Was that a stock '62 PS hose or some other?

Le Blond is a really nice lathe. If I didn't have a nice late model Logan that's good enough I'd be all in. Now if it was a Monarch 10EE.... :D

Good luck, hope it lands in a good home..
