In Topic: What did you do to your dime today?

Interesting, I've never looked that closely at at the Z tank. I guess if one pickup is good, 2 is better. :)

 

That was my thought, now does it actually work or make things worse. I'll never know lol.

Slow and easy, don't be too rough with her, unless that's how she likes it, depends on the truck really.

 

In my life, they never really want it. They just put up with it. lol.  Oh the truck.  yeah I'll blast the plugs with some PB blaster and let them sit for a while. Then go back at it.  Can't drive anyways since I need to fix the brakes again.  They are stuck engaged.  Feels like the master cylinder isn't releasing. 

 

Would like to find something like that,...need something with out a computer controlled everything.

 

It's nice having both.  I love the creature comforts of my 16 Nissan Murano, but I love the simplicity of my Dime and Truck.

OK, gotta ask. Why are there two fuel pump mounting rings in your tank? Are you running dual fuel pumps?

 

No, just one fuel pump. The setup is from a twin turbo 300zx.  It had the fuel pump and a level sending unit that had a hose running to the fuel pump.  Not exactly sure what it was doing, but it was on the other side of the hump in the gas tank from the fuel pump. So I figured it couldn't hurt to have it, though maybe it was working as sort of a secondary pickup, but could be totally wrong.  And figured if I was already cutting one hole in the top of my tank, it can't hurt to cut two and put them both in my stock tank.

 

 

They must have used the same coating on yours as the place used on mine when I had 4 tanks done a couple of years ago. Had that same color to it. I was gonna ask what car that tank was for cause I only have one sending unit hole on mine. I see you have two holes. Good luck on it.

 

I'm hoping the coating is good, seems like I shouldn't have any more leaking problems. but car is just a KA powered dime. See answer above lol.

...but you don't need to smog 75 and below in Calif.

 

Washington, only have to worry about it being over 25 years old, or 2009+ with CA emissions.  If it fits in one of those two categories, don't have to worry about smog checks or anything like that. 

 

 

...hopefully they were just loose and spark plug hole was not stripped.

 

Sorry, it was just the plug wire that wasn't fully seated on the plug, not the plug that was loose.  Hell, I tried undoing two plugs and they were on pretty really good. I'm hoping I can remove them with out breaking them.

Quick adjustment on drums and now doesn't violently pull to the left when braking.

 

And on a V8 aren't all 8 spark plugs supposed to be plugged in?  Two came right off in my hand without a fight. Still needs a good tune.
