IDI Engine / Re: Pump fuel screw......what setting is oem?
« on: September 19, 2018, 08:58:18 pm »
when I had a cap on my golf I was still able to turn the screw in enough to cause an erratic idle, black smoke and a noticeable jump in power. I don't think the safety cap is necessarily the factory point or else I wouldn't have been able to turn mine any.

Why so obsessed with getting it to exactly factory spec? do you have an egt gauge? id just turn it to where you have a steady idle and no smoke if you arnt looking for a performance bump.

Doesnt look like its been asked. Have the rods been inspected for straightness?

Damn looks like the higher psi sensors are normally open. 3psi it is i guess. I'll at least put it in the head so it'll give more of a warning then 3psi at the filter flange.

IDI Engine / oil pressure switch
« on: September 09, 2018, 03:56:22 pm »
Hey guys. I'm looking to install a oil pressure switch so I have some kind of warning in my Tacoma swap. Theres not a lot of room to mount aftermarket gauges so I'd rather just run the light for now. The cluster light turns on with ground and off without ground so I need a sensor that grounds at low pressure then opens the circuit at pressure. Is this how the stock sensors run? Also what kind of pressure should be running at the filter flange? I know theres a bunch of different psi rating switches available. Id rather one a bit higher to get an earlier warning of a developing issue then the 3psi one. Is 13psi likely to trip at idle on the filter flange on a healthy engine? Its been a while since I monitored pressures but from what I remember filter flange at idle should be around 20psi and the head is about 10psi which should make 13psi a decent size for the light?

sounds like he wants a t25 manifold to mount a holset with a bottom outlet like that pic

Search for 8v manifolds on eBay. There's ones that go straight out and ones that go "up" but you could pretty easily flip it and have the mount facing down

Lol all good man. Thanks for looking. I'll hook it up with a zapstrap until i can find a proper cable end

actually I just found this. you can see in his engine bay the kind of cable I have. looks almost like you hold the cable above the ball and then snap something down into it

heres a video showing it better

Sorry for the large pic imgur wont let me resize them anymore for whatever reason. I know what you are describing its what my old cable was like. the new one I pulled from a jetta aaz (1994 I believe) has a rectangular tip with a rectangular hole in it. I'm thinking there was some kind of rubber bushing or something that snapped onto the ball and then this cable snapped ontop of it. Before today I had never seen this style and I cant even find anything online that looks like it.

heres the link to the pic ill remove it from the original post so its not stupidly large

if you find one id love to buy it! I only really need the locking cap and maybe 6" of the steel hose with the black plastic part

IDI Engine / aaz throttle cable
« on: August 19, 2018, 08:17:14 pm »
how do I make this work? I had the older style cable with the black rectangle thingy and the metal collar that slides over and locked it into place but I cant find it. Went to pickapart today and this was the only cable I could find. unfortunately the ip and whatever this piece slides onto was missing. Anyone know what im looking for or where to find it? or would anyone have a few inches of the cable with the locking part (gotta hack 2 cables together and just need the portion to attach it to the throttle arm).

Anyone have a cad file of a block girdle? Have a friend with a cc, wouldnt mind getting him to cut me one out if anyone has a design they'd care to share?

Ill email them some pics but cross border return shipping is usually more hassle then the refund. The valve seat looks fine just their finishing machining work is pretty horrible. Like i said the valve face is all ugly and the base of the valve stem looks like it has carbon buildup on it already lol. Id use it in a pinch but it doesnt give me much confidence in the quality of the part when it looks like crap.

It was $20. I ordered a new one from partsplace last night.

Anyone know the best place to buy valves? I got one from tectonics tuning and I'm not sure i want to use it. The valve head is all rough and uneven and the base of the stem is also really rough. It looks almost like carbon buildup but its new... The face however is clean. Any issues?

« on: July 18, 2018, 11:01:52 am »
No I don't. What's involved in that? I dont have a tool to put the valve in either. Was thinking of bringing it to the shop when i get all the parts
