  1. Get the electrical issue that causes all the dash lights to stay on figured out. My bet is that will solve your fuel problem. Good luck.
  2. I’d follow-up on the power to the fuel pump. The fuel pump un my 82 Brat is always on. I am pretty sure it should always gave power when the engine is running…. my $0.02 good luck
  3. If memory serves, the one on the top of the filter is the return …. I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

    Brat brake calipers

    Consider rebuilding yours. The process is not too complex.
  5. Why is the insurance company “taking” the car? They don’t have to take it to do an estimate. Sounds SUPER shady to me….
  6. Hi all, been slowly making progress w/ my Brat. It is now safe and roadworthy. My newest issue is the transmission is leaking badly at the shifter shaft seal. my questions are; can it be replaced without removing the transmission? and any words of wisdom or advice before I dig in? So far I have: replaced a head due to a previously botched helicoil for a sparkplug. Replace h2o pump, hoses, radiator. Installed new 32/36 (it runs, but not quite right, but that is a later project). Redid all brakes that need immediate attention. Fixed the leaking t-top. Replaced a bunch if wheel studs. Entirely replaced exhaust. And, additional sundry repairs and maint. thanks in advance.

    Europeon EA82T/XT

    I am pretty sure the methods of testing hp in the US vs Europe were different then. It isn’t always an apples to apples comparison. That said, I have no idea if there was any difference in the vehicles.

    Fan Thermo Temp Range

    What are you running for T-stat temps? Doesn’t make sense to me to look at one w/out the other....
  9. Leave it, cap it, remove and recycle/dispose of it. Doesn’t make much difference. It isn’t really needed anymore. My $0.02
  10. Possible a tire is bad. Tread separation or defect.
  11. Installed. All went pretty easy. The cat-back muffler/pipe will be installed next week.
  12. Thanks all. I went with a Magnaflow. The mounting point on the tail end of the unit matches stock better (to my eye). Now welding, or mods needed. So far, so good.
  13. Yes. It is a filter and vapor control and should be replaced periodically. I am guessing you still have the original carburetor. The vapor line is often capped/removed if an after market carb is installed.
  14. Is there anything other than a failure of the wiper motor that will cause them not to park? they just stop when I turn off the switch. Thanks in advance for help/ideas!
