It's been awhile since I had anything to get excited about but today a video showed up that I am thrilled to be able to share. This is the first prototype and some size issues may still need to be addressed, but it's proof of concept taking my wood carving to the next level. This switch recreates th...

It’s disappointing to have to ship our money to another country, but there is little to nothing left in Canada that I didn’t already buy.

Lifters can be serviced by dis-assembly and cleaning. If there is no excess lash/noise there is no problem with them.

Another drivability issue is cold idle speed. Casper will rev to 2500 rpm on the cold idle valve. If it's really cold the engine will take so long to warm up the ECM times out and starts a fuel cut cycle. Breezy is not so extreme and will start at 2000 rpm. Carl barely hits 1500 rpm. Are the idle va...

My 91 stock Sprint Turbo idle sags a bit when the rad fan kicks in or whenever I switch on any load. Since it has an idle speed adjustment screw, I used that to set the warm base idle at 900 rpm and just live with the sag to 750 rpm when every electrical load is switched on. My car still idles smoo...

The supplement requires that the diagnostic connector be shorted to ground during idle adjustment to clamp(disable) the ISC VSV. I will check if it clamps it open or closed just to understand it better. I’m banking on closed.
