    fuel delivery

    Hi all, I decided to go with Hibs Airtex recommendation, in no small way, as it is by far the cheapest option. However, with the engine running, with the old pump, the pressure, at the rail, is varying from about 28 PSI to 39 PSI. Could this also be a relay, or other, problem, rather than...

    Help to pass SoCal smog

    My '88 was running badly at low revs in OD, so on advice, I plugged off the EGR, reconnected it for my last smog test and scraped through with MAX HO readings of 112 and 86. It's due again in 3 weeks and, I'm sure, it will fail. All other readings were low. What should I do ? Any help is greatly...

    EGR solenoid ?

    Hi all, I recently plugged off the vacuum line to the EGR, as a temporary 'fix' for the lumpy running, I was experiencing at low revs under load. I've put off getting to the EGR until I can afford the injectors, I intend to replace, when doing this. Now I'me told it may be the solenoid. I...
