Quick update:
Haven't done much for a while. Been having a misfire issue. Dont think its getting enough fuel. If anyone wants to shed some light onto what it might be, please do. Im getting the misfire throughout the rev range. Only happens when i give it more than about 1/2 throttle. Coughs and sputters. Plugs are clean. Doesnt blow smoke at all. Changed the fuel filter, intake manifold gasket and leads. Got new dizzy cap and rotor as well. Dont know whether it could be injectors or rail or maybe fuel pump. If anyone knows anything or has had similar experiences i wouldnt mind a hand in sorting it out. Also having a brake issue. Sounds like a vacuum lead coming from the shaft through the firewall from the booster assembly.

Cheers
Sam

Have managed to fix the problem. Turns out it was a mixture of blocked fuel filter and faulty leads. The lead running from the ignition coil to the dizzy was having a spit, as were the other leads before i killed 3 in a week. Still have a slight issue at higher rpm and in the torque band. Am cleaning the injectors and rail this sunday with my airgun. Anybody have any advice with the cleaning of injectors and rail?

Good job and hope you sort those issues out.

Thanks mate. Everyone knows how hard it is to finish a project. But im a little slower due to funds at the moment. Gotta get the engine sorted before i can finish the interior and give it a nice respray and fix the bodywork up.
Oh and i picked up a trip computer today for $50. Will be fitting this sunday.
Also managed to order a set of xr indicators/parkers for $100 for a set!! Brand new through a mate who is a mechanic.

Cheers
Sam

Not my thing, but those amps do look pretty cool up on the parcel shelf with the speakers.

Overall I like your interior, think it's nice work & the two tone looks the goods, but I would have picked leather & vinyl for the trim job. The parcel shelf looks good too, with the amps up there like that. I hope your back window is tinted to help hide them away from scum bags!

Keep up the good work.

Cheers
