well recently i tried to sell my rhd 1979 fairlady, but the buyer
fell through so i kept it.
i had to clean the gas tank out and hot wire a fuel pump, and
then it started, but it was running pretty crappy. all the
spark plugs were replaced, the fuel filter is new, fuel pump is new,
new plug wires, new oil and filter...
so being the curious guy i am i unplugged the afm/maf and the idle
jumped up from 400rpms to 800 and idled perferct, plug the sensor
back in runs like shit, grab 2 spare sensors and they all make it
run like shit. so i left it unplugged and drove it and it runs great,
why would this be??? it is a jdm car but it should need a sensor
just like every other car ya know, it is a little jerky driving if i am
barely on the gas but full throttle or off the throttle it is great.
the car is running rich i can tell by the gas smell and cloud coming
out the exhaust at full throttle, thats the only draw back i have
come across. is it ok to run the car without the afm/maf?
having just a filter on the tb sounds absolutely amazing btw,
it growls and whistles ridiculously loud lol i like it i just dont
like not having all the proper stuff working
another question is i am not getting power back to the
fuel pump so ran a hot wire and switch,is there any fuseblock
under hood or somewhere i can pull power from and have it
shut off with the ignition? in my rx7 i did it that way but this
has fusible links and i cant find a place to tap into
thanks in advance i will make a video of it running and
show you all the intake growl its awesome!
