It's just for holding while he skates. It's essentially like a big handle.

They seem cool to me. Don't know why you would bolt them on, run the car for five minutes, and then take them off to sell.

Probably these (definitely pick those up, shortys are sexy): http://www.ebay.com/itm/1995-1996-19...#ht_2414wt_984



Which brings me to my point... My ebay headers seem to have the wrong pipe diameter.

midpipe: 60mm and 55mm
headers: 50mm and 45mm
Clamps: 53mm and 48mm

I haven't cut the midpipe yet, but there's no way the clamp is going to fit on. The headers could probably slide into the midpipe for easy welding, but that's not what I want to do....

yeah. there must be a route to ground in the circuit.

if no 'ground wire', then get a gp with a ground wire, or, thread a nut to the thing with a wire along the threads. it need not be huge, just a good solid contact.

just make sure the wires for the circuit are suited for the amp rating. you don't want to have a melt down.

Might want to adjust your W4 so more is withheld next year. Depending on your income there's a lot of deductions you might want to make sure you got.

pics of said dizzy internals??

it's been ages since i have worked on anything with a carburator. ignition systems are fairly simplistic, though.


df
That's what I was thinking. I'll get some pics of inside the distributor in the morning. Do you know of a way to test the signal generator in the dizzy?, or is it safe to assume it's bad since every thing else is brand new?.

Nvm... Got it figured out, wife wasn't working first 6 months of the year, so I had 2 dependents on my W4, she started working full time and I forgot to switch it back...

I will only be paying a fraction from what I was estimated for!!! (3.5k)
