Started working on my fuel system. After looking at the tank pickup it has a AN 10 feed but only a AN 6 return. Not sure why they would design it like that but I decided to upgrade the return to an AN 8. Hope it does the trick.
My favorite place delivered what I hope is the last of my parts I need to finish the car. New X1 regulator. AN 8 return fuel line. And a bunch of fittings. Shouldn't be long now. Getting excited. It's been a long haul.
Well I've installed my fuel system. Pump built up pressure to 30 psi so I adjusted the new regulator up to 39. Started the car and all seems good so far. Installed my brake drums after getting them machined and mounted the rear wheels. No cap on them as I need to torque the nuts yet. Getting really close.
If anybody remembers back when I was getting the engine together I came up with the Brite idea to remove the smog pump and put the alternator where that was. Well all good except that the alternator pulley is a quarter the size of the smog pulley so that when the belt runs from the alternator to the power steering pump the belt pretty much rubbed on the water pump pulley. That was the tightest belt I could get on. As soon as the belt stretched a little bye bye belt. So I came up with a fix. I mounted an idler pulley up on the supercharger bracket plate to move up the belt. Just waiting on my new belt to come in and it should be all good.
