Still not positive on my jets. I'll get around to it. Fixed the throttle binding. Set timing to 20 degrees. Running fantastic. Think my cold idle is better too, I'll know for sure tomorrow. If it's running fine it's safe to say I can leave the jets alone yes? If it ain't broke don't fix it sorts thing..

Some pictures. Thanks for all the replies/advice/and help.

+1 on the quarter trick, deleting the asv cans-not really sure what you did there, -there's still quite a bit of 'junk' you can get rid of.

You know you can use the cable linkage piece from the Hitachi, right? But it looks like you cut the cable end off and put the screw-on end there.


May I ask what the thing is you have on your + battery cable?

Also, what is the black square-ish box on the p-side firewall?

Black squarish box is an old aftermarket alarm system that was on the car when I got it. I made sure the wires were cut and have just left it there. Good spot to lean on when I'm working over there. :-P

Positive battery cable has a 100 amp fuse. Part of stereo system.

Asvs I've left alone. I just put filters on the lines so no crap falls down into them. I like the sound of them being open.

Oh and I was going to use the Hitachi cable plate but I found it easier to set up this one. Aside for my distaste for using a pinch bolt to hold my cable still, and after a little fenagling, it's working great!

Weber install complete:

Just for the record, leaving the asv lines open was causing me massive backfiring while shifting. Closed them up with the quarter trick and all is well. Very happy.

Video was shot before asvs were blocked off.
