I got the coolers and pipping all wraped up, just waiting on a 3" intake horn to complete the 3" intercooler pipping.







I couldnt take all the shiny aluminum it just wasnt looking right on this project. So i got out the scotch brite and blitz black.

Well i got the hood on and the fan blade was too high so i had to use a different fan hub on the engine. I got it fired up and took it for a spin and the slight miss never cleared up I was hopeing there was just some air in the fuel system, so we found #5 had the miss so we swapped the nozzle/injector with a different cylinder and the miss moved to that cylinder so i have to send that injector out and have it gone thru or buy a new injector. I did get the tach working ran it off the tach pulse on the alternator to a dakota digital tach module and got it dialed in to the right rpm. Also tryed the cruise control while on the road test and that worked great. So as far as wiring goes all that is left to try is the a/c but i havent charged that up yet to try it, and i need to finish up the heat grid wiring, I have the solenoid on the fire wall all wired up just have to wire in the timer, I got a volkswagen glow plug timer that will turn on the heat grid when the key is turned on and shut it off after 20 secs.

Well the different fan hub also moved the fan a half inch closer to the radiator so i had to machine a spacer to space the fan of off the clutch. I a got a new injector and the motor seems to run good now, i have been driving it for a couple days now and i will say this, the rotary pump motor is a pooch in stock form! planning on fixing that this weekend with a governor spring, star wheel adjustment, fuel pin rotate, and full fuel screw. i will get more pics this week.

They are terrible when not messed with. I will say though, that the governor spring is a night and day difference, and a great mod for only $20. I went from foot-to-the-floor just to maintain 55mph to barely touching the pedal.

I just hope for your sake you didn't get a pump like mine... Half a turn on the fuel screw and it was bottomed on the o-ring that seals it to the pump top

What all have you done to your pump? Are you happy with the power output now? have you change exhaust housings or done any other mods?

Well i did the pump mods this weekend and WOW! did the 3200 gov spring turned the star wheel a 1/4 turn (thats all i could go and it was bottomed), turned the stock fuel pin to the deep side, and turned the full fuel screw in unknown amount but i think i can still go further. i still want to check fuel pin travel and possibly make the plastic washer thinner so i get more travel and maybe turn the full fuel screw some more but i dont have a pyro on it yet so i will prob roll with this for now. I cant believe the difference very fun to drive now it will easily run with a stock 24v. seat of the pants its hard to compare to my old 24v truck it had 3.55 gears and 35" tires, this truck has 4.10 gears and stock diameter tires on it, but feels quicker than the truck did.
