  1. I am ready for season 4 West World is good starts out slow first season but it worth it, all the californiacation fans should like TrueBlood good time to start Game of Thrones again, Project Bluebook was good,
  2. The breaks that you have look like the old Jmar, I had the same issue with the older jmar, quick fix would be to just run a washer, but that not what we would do, depending on how the rear seal sits, I would put a spacer behind the Race to move the bearing farther apart, but running a washer should work, the aluminum nut can be dangerous, they strip out pretty easy, the 7075 made in the USA did not have a issue but I don't know if anyone is really making them anymore, the steel ones is what you should use,
  3. couple of things running the cable off the transmission kick down is not a great idea, a better smoother option is the cable that raps around the TB or weld on a longer tab the picture below will allow you to hook up the morse cable and use the picture to wrap around the Throttle body, also make sure the morse cable is in good shape move it by hand and make sure everything is smooth, as of a return spring , I run one but for a cleaner look I run one on the throttle pedal back to around the morse cable mount,
  4. with this style fuel pressure regulator they do not hold pressure, it should blead off as soon as the ignition shuts off, the speed of the bleed off will be determined on the fuel pump, some fuel pump have a one way valve and will hold pressure longer, most aftermarket pumps will bleed off in about 2 seconds, the longer you wait to start the car after the ignition switch turns on the HARDER it will be to start it, to wait 15 seconds after starting these cars it might loose all the fuel pressure, then crank and build it back up again after turning on the ignition, most fuel injection system will prime for 6 seconds and then loose all pressure, See how it starts after you turn on the ignition and only wait 2 seconds then start or cycle the ignition 2 twice and on the second time hit the start button after a second or two and see if it starts, If you really want the rail to hold pressure they make one way fuel fittings that you can put on the inlet, these can help hold pressure, if you have a check valves after the pump and it does not hold any pressure, then first see inside the regulator check ball, the ball should seat flat if there is a burr or a flat spot it can blead off pressure, I really only wait about a second after the ign on to start the car, if the car has sat for some time, sometimes I will cycle it 3-4 times until I can hear the fuel shooting back into the tank and then if fires right up
  5. Why would it hold pressure after the pump turns off, Your not one of those guys that waits for the pump to turn off to try to fire up the car, are you,

    LS t-stat

    yes unlike most motors, the stat is on the inlet, you can fill the water from the upper hose and bleed the air out of the steam ports by loosing them, or just drill a couple of 1/8 holes like on page one, and this will make your life easy to fill the motor

    Make sure to add the holes that way it will fill with water so you do not have to vacuum fill it.

    i have had one fall out, and have to chase a heating issue My next one will be a redline or still weld them in

    I have had one freeze plug fall out and some pumps are very odd size. I make my own on the lathe and weld them in. Then I have some brass plugs fit tight. Cbm uses a retainer compound. the redline might be the easiest way also putting a hole in the center is not the best idea The concept is to bleed as much air out so if I do a hole it is all the way left

    I run not T stat also the Freeze plug is for the bypass hole from the inlet side to the outlet side of the pump, it was a pressure relief valve for plastic radiators so they did not blow appart a lot of people run the hole in the freeze plug, from .125-.250 and redline runs no hole, we also run no hole, but we run our steam port exit at the end of the pump near the freeze plug
  12. on the factory system the MAP sensor runs 50% of the system and TPS runs about %50, TPS need to go to 100% wide open if not it is running all over the VE table, make sue you DO NOT GET ONE from autozone or check, I really do not trust amazon, I get mine from Summit racing, Jegs or the dealer, it get the factory AC-Delco, not AC-Delco Replacement, Map easy to check what ever the air density is when the motor is not running is what it should read, so what ever the air density is outside the motor needs to be at the MAP before startup, last would be a cam sensor, but it would back fire every other startup,
