    Radiator Source?

    Ya, pictures would be awesome. Those seem easy to find at a reasonable price.
  2. Anyone have a source for a new radiator for an 80 brat? Or an alternative that fits and is easier to find. Thanks
  3. Thanks guys, i swapped plugs and wires, cap and rotor look good, they are pretty new. Checked timing, and it is sitting at 14*. I am out of room on adjustment. Running 83+ distributor and diy bracket, im going to try getting a bracket from pick and pull, see if that helps. 1 notch on disto was to far. Will update if it helps.
  4. How is the return line routed from the weber, i haven’t seen this before. The vent still leads to the charcoal canister. I was under the impression that the weber wanted the same fuel pressure that the stock pump puts out.
  5. No, just direct connection from fuel pump.
  6. Running an 80 brat with weber. I’m getting horrible gas mileage(mid teens). Seems to run good, carb is adjusted and falls with in specs(idle and mixture). Cap and rotor don’t look bad, Im running a junk yard coil, and rebuilt 83+ disto. All smog equipment is bypassed, disto is only vac line used. I smell gas on hot days, how much could I be loosing to evaporation. Should I reconnect the charcoal canister system? Could low fuel pressure cause bad mileage? Plugs look good. coil? Plug wires? I have checked for vacume leaks, i think I'm good. I am not expecting anything great, i seldom hit the freeway, and my average drive is <2 miles. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance IC

    4x140 - 5x100 Wheel Adapters

    Anything ever happen with this?
  10. Does anybody have this PDF? Link is dead.
  11. My first step would be to find the grounds and trace them. May have broken or shorted one. Check the back of the fuse block, if it roasted the fuse that bad, could have screwed up the connector on the back. If none of that works, get a meter, and look for voltage at the connectors, if there is no voltage, trace the wires back til you find it. It is possible that you unplugged a piece if harness when you put it back together. Good luck ic

    I love it... What size tires are those? I like the way they fit the fenders. Are you using the cheesy bumper mounted hitch?
