#1534336 Mine now ('74 Cactus Green)

Posted by FrankRizzo on 12 December 2017 - 06:04 AM

Truck has been running like shit for the last couple of months.It would run great for about 15 or 20 minutes, but then would not idle and start coughing and stuttering. I Replaced the IACV, plugs, wires, cap & rotor.  No luck.

 

Turns out that the new to me "rebuilt" MAF from RockAuto was bad...POS. I sprung for a brand new MAF from Nissan. Everything is good now. So while I was tracking down the problem, I picked up on a few air leaks in the intake piping. So I sprung for some new carbon fiber intake pipe (because I like the way it works) and new silicone couplers and T bolts. Now I was able to use my eye-of-redness MAF bracket (with some modifications).

Also - I swapped my old Hella H4 and H1 halogen bulbs for new LED bulbs. By bye old yellow lights.

 

Old on the left, LED on the right...

#1530858 stay away from Hagerty classic car insurance

Follow up:
Got my policy from Hagerty yesterday.
I was able to get the total cost down to about $230 per year ! ...I did not need the towing service since I have AAA already, bumped the deductible to $500 and covered at an agreed value of $12500.
I had to send in 4 good pics and did the application online. An Agent called me to verify a couple of other details and the policy was issued electronically a few days later along with the card. Super clean process.
Overall I did not save any money on the policy overall, but AAA verified that they would only pay “average retail” based on things like the Autotrader if it was totaled. The Hagerty cost ends up being almost exactly the same as AAA, but with much higher coverage and Earthquake damage as well. So I feel much better.
The one restriction is that I don’t use it as a daily driver.

There are no members currently on any mod review.... There is nothing to stop any truck drivers from posting here, just empty your piss jugs outside the forum.

 

Funny story. "Piss Jugs" was my gay porn name back in the day...

#1528719 KA24DE conversion issues

I recall the part number cross references to some sort of Chevy sway bar end link bushings. I bought some, but have not installed yet, I'll see if they are in my parts box in the garage.

That suspension looks really clean, nice.

 

I ended up using a Walker "super turbo" muffler  and a 8" long Cherry Bomb glasspack as a resonator near the tailpipe. To me, it sounds great, no drone and no "farty" sounds like so many ricer cars. It's quiet under normal conditions, but sounds balls deep when I get on the gas.

 

There is a video in my build thread someplace.

Thanks to this thread, I got a online quote from Hagerty.

 

$14k replacement value, 500k/500k coverage with $1k deductible for $350/year! More than $750/year less than AAA ... AND they include earthquake coverage so when the get clobbered by shit in the rafters in the garage during an "event", Im covered. AAA does not have anything like that.

Since it's only paint grade, MDF for stability, ripped and planed to uniform width. Everything else in the house is painted pine T&G board, 4" and 8". I made that 6"X10" white oak box beam there too. Finishing this ceiling and then the beam will wrap a glue lam next to it.

 

 Whats the floor? Looks like white oak.

 

I just bought and installed a 6 x 12 box beam cover made from foam and factory stained that looks surprisingly (very) good to cover the beat up exposed ridge beam in our master bedroom. It was light enough that Mrs. Rizzo could help me install.

At precisely 10:00am there were no less than 30 speedboats pulling out of Long Beach harbor right behind the park.

Ive never seen such a spectacle. Cigarette, Donzi, Scarab. Easily $10 mil worth of boats idling out of the harbor off to some fun run and the view from the park was amazing...
