    Just buy something from Thule or Yakima.

    I think the boilers are the biggest problem, a little dangerous to build/test/run. I don't think many places sell boiler kits or assembled boilers, I don't even want to think about large size boilers.

    I want to build a steam engine one day, need to get the required mill and lathe first though.
  4. Random thought thread

    Truck, CEL popped on because of the gas cap popping off again, it finally cleared after leaving work today. Still need one for some OBD-II stuff and a couple OBD-I, GM, Ford and Honda at the moment, was looking at the Bosch 1300. Seen some positive reviews of a few Autel units but they have to be ordered.

    Anyone got an opinion on a code scanner? I think it is just time I invest in one.
  8. Fox Mustang: Next Purchase

    I'm unsure of my next big step on my Fox and would like a little input. I'm looking at replacing the stock 302 with something a little more power. As I'm looking at it now I have 3 options: BOSS 302 crate engine, SysteMax intake --Not real crazy about the GT-40 heads it includes but one phone call gets it all Built Dart 302/331/347 with TFS 170 or 190 heads, SysteMax intake, cam up in the air-- unsure of a builder Spare Porno block, maybe 306, with TFS heads, SysteMax intake, cam up in the air-- unsure of a builder and the weak block but cheapest option What are some thoughts?

    Speaking of which, you still have Leonard's stuff laying around?

    Below is the current fuel and timing maps: Should I set an 8x8 fuel to what 3lbs/hr, that is about where it was idling, along with the 24.6 cells on the timing map? Still need to check the Inductive delay again and verify the timing, which is hard when it will not idle at 10*, I guess I could bump it to 20* and see if it will idle there and check it, just have to mark the balancer again.

    It is CA after all, nobody is in a hurry there unless it is to get drugs, hide illegals, or ban guns.
  14. Home building 101, er, 404?

    I need to build a set of stairs for a cat, when I get the time.........

    Wait......Isn't there a sign that the business "has a right to refuse service"......... The second thing is, why would someone want to spend money somewhere that doesn't provide the service you want? I'm about positive that there are other places that would be happy to make a cake/flower/etc.

    I'm assuming I need to turn off CL learning and CL comp?
  17. 2010 Camaro SS

    Actually no, it is a general statement. Went through it with a friend over a Honda that was using a quart plus every 1000 miles. Honda stated that was normal.........After a year or so with the problem they finally re-ringed 3 of the 6 cylinders in it. I always thought it was a funny statement as if normal is a quart per 1000. There is 4.5-5 quarts of oil generally in an engine and with 5000+ mile recommended oil change intervals the math doesn't add up. after about 3000 mile there wouldn't be enough oil in the engine to lube stuff. Talk about shitty engineering.......who said math was important. Not poking at you, just automotive manufactures in general.

    Does it take you step by step in building the stringers?
  19. 2010 Camaro SS

    You are just a little above what most manufactures equate as normal, a quart every 1000 miles.........with 5000+ mile oil change intervals.......
  20. Fox Mustang: Next Purchase

    Dumb question........ WIth the EECIV you pull the spout and set the base timing at 10*, by the manual. With the Holley it will not idle at 10*, currently to get it somewhat stable I'm around 25* in the map. Using the 16x16 maps seems to be a lot better for initial adjustments than the 31x31. IAC is high so I think I need to open the throttle blade or put the belt on it. The discharge was not on it during the first round before the distributor mishap.

    The key was not working the other day, the shank was being pushed up out of the center and wouldn't fully seat. It took quite a bit of jiggling, rocking, tapping, PB, etc. before it would seat correctly. I don't trust the cylinder to not have a tumbler mess up again, less than $20.

    The coupe is back running and the blower motor is back working with just the ignition switch. I think I'm still going to replace the cylinder though.

    Would this work also: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/zex-ns6688 $13 cheaper than the NX piece and made of steel.
