I been using water feed on the VK to the carby and a 27G blunt needle as a fixed jet. It is too fine a bore and prone to blocking. I took the needle out by heating the needle with the flame from a lighter and pulled the needle out of the stub with a pair of pliers. Voila now the bore is 19 gauge-ish. I had a pack of blunt needles for the project and did that to several of them and used 2 of them in line and a one way valve from the water bottle. It seems to be more reliable. It runs smoother, i get better economy and makes good power.
Watched it tick over the 450k km mark.
Dropped the mistress of to the repairs after being rear ended Thursday night.
Replaced a window regulator in the family wagon.
First time I've done one of these.....in and out in 40 mins.
Stealership quoted 1.5hrs labour at $240.
Late reply....that sucks.
All back in good order ?
Yer @VS 5.0 got the car back on the Thursday after dropping her off the repair looks good but I noticed the other day that a heap of the fixings for the inner guard to rear bar are missing which is annoying.
Took it for a drive to cool it down! These 43 degree days aren't good for a car sitting in the sun.
Yeah its been stinking over here got to 35 yesterday, nearly killed me. Last week was bad enough with some days at 28 deg.
When gets above about 35 nobody really does any work. Everyone just sits around in the AC and MIGHT go out for an ice cream or a Slurpee
Checked the water bottle for the water injection and the line going to the EGR port works well.
Took the CV8 for a quick 200km round trip to have a vineyard lunch.
When I got there, I noticed a small dent about the size of a 10c on the top of the front guard, only noticeable from one angle with the sun on it.
By the time I got home and put the car away in the garage, it was the size of a football, and noticeable from anywhere.
I reckon by next weekend, it will be a write-off. Arrghhhh!
No!! =how = a second hand guard and paint!!!
Original guard, no paint chips, dunno how it happened or how long it has been there. Geez, I hate little dings like that.
A bit of bog will fix it when I get animated about stone chips on the bonnet.
I'd be trying PDR before bog.
I drove the ve from Ipswich to Monto return today to pick up a puppy. 1011 kilometres, average speed 92 kilometres per hour, 10.3 kilometres per litre. Considering the hold ups I had due to towns with 50 kilometre limits and trucks that took me ages to get past I don't think it was to bad an effort
