  1. Hi All, Can recommend replacement for D3VE-A2A heads? or tell me the exact size for valve guides. Could not find info that tells the size of valve guide. I think I got worn valve guides. My idle vacuum when engine hot vibrates fast, but steadies at high RPM. I try to adjust my valves first, but I fear the guides are too worn out. Thanks in advance! Please move to correct section (under engines)...
  2. More search done and I found the solution, there are many cut-to-lenght universal accelerator cables and brackets for them, just need to pick one...
  3. Hi All, I need your help. I installed Weiand 8021 intake to my BBF 429 (old one leaked), but my accelerator cable is too tight and it keeps my idle at 1500rpm. When I remove the cable from carb I get normal idle around 900 rpm (I got non-stock camshaft). My current cable is 23.75" long, I need atleast 24" or more. But I couldn't find one with the correct brackets (maybe it's my poor search skills). Do I need a custom one? Or should I change the gas pedal and cable (Lokar?) Thanks in advance :)
  4. @Fabrice I found this code in the bracket D3MH-2882-AB. Hope this helps, I got pics too if needed.
  5. @Fabrice Thanks, I need to make rear more stiff, so much power... I got rear end sway bar waiting to be installed. Black bracket is for A/C pump, but whole A/C system has been removed. I think you're not missing anything if you don't have A/C. But I can take more pics for you. @OzCoupe72 Thanks for the info, I got Holley 4150 with secondary vacuum carb. And I have planned to add 1/2" wooden spacer, should help. @keiths71 and mach71351c THANKS!
  6. Finally she is ready :) Last problem was fluctuating idle vacuum, so I had to open half of the motor and put it back together. No exact problem was found, only that my valve springs had too low spring pressure for my use (55PSI) so we changed them more stiff. But now she works like a charm, fun ride :)
  7. Welcome from Finland also :) Eli tervetuloa ;)
  8. Nothing much done in the winter as I don't have heated garage and my friend car is also there, so no room to do anything. But I got my back seat back from upholstery shop. Now they match front seats.
  9. @OzCoupe72 I am not a fan of shining things and I like it simple as you said. :)
  10. He's wife (or gf) eat it :P just because Fabrice is too busy with his car that he forgets to eat :D And great work as always! keep it up!
  11. Sorry I got it wrong I meant 50mm2 cable -> AWG 0. SORRY. We use metric system so I made mistake... And I used highly flexible rubber cable.
  12. Do you have any pics of your set up? Seems that I only got pic where I routed it. Plus cable already in place. Minus cable fits also there. I used 6 AWG eletrical stranded copper cable.
  13. Well I got fiber glass front bumber as well :)
  14. Welcome from Finland! Nice car!
  15. I got battery moved to trunk, my +/- cables are routed under passanger´s side door (don't know what that space is called) and through the firewall to engine compartment.
  16. @protouringstang73 Thanks! I love it too :D
  17. I have to admit that the engine was already build and in place when I bought the car. Only things I have done are replacing altenator to 1-wire 100A and rewired almost everything. I argee you on that fuel line it's annoying me also and it's always on the way when I was timing the engine. I'll try to get car ready and inspected before I turn my eyes on little things. Here I got pics from underneath.
  18. I got headers and I think they are self made (not 100% sure) but rest of the pipeline is. It's X-type and 2,5". And some videos for you all :) Hope you enjoy :)
  19. @Fabrice Done that already without start phase but I need to upload it to youtube. In the video the BTC at 7-800rpm is set to 18 degrees and at 2-3000rpm BTC is 38 degrees. I still got some issues and adjustment to do with the carb.
  20. So got my Pony put out to pasture... I got still some minor issues and adjustments and timing to do, but it's running without any leaks in the engine. Minor leak coming from power steering but nothing to worry about now.
