    Still running the factory oiling system, ex filter and cooler? Maybe a restriction there. Totally off the wall but check the clearance between the dist bore in the block against the diameter of the dist. Maybe too much oil getting past. I've seen where people have notched the dist to provide oil to...

    Just my opinion but I wouldn't put 5w30 in anything I owned. 5 psi at idle is quite low. I had a case many years ago on a big truck motor when I was sent the wrong size bearings. Did you plastigauge the bearings? You're correct, I forgot the dist. (Trying to remember since we're still not home from...

    I don't think there is anyplace to put restrictors in a V6. (Somebody?) Different oiling system than the V8. What is great oil pressure? What is the oil pressure when at idle, engine hot? What grade of oil? When the motor was rebuilt were the galley plugs removed and the passages cleaned? Were the plugs...

    It's all my fault. I recently asked when we might be going to HTTPS for security reasons, as opposed to HTTP, and I've seen two different versions of "forum software" since. In the old system with one click I was looking at the latest posts. With this system I haven't figured it out. I've...

    Got this when I attempted a reply to a thread. Turns out it posted anyway.

    Teflon tape is fine, taping into the fitting for brake booster is fine. As long as there are no leaks and as long as the brake booster fitting is not restricted in some manner. There has to be no leaks anywhere. IMO taping the brakes or even stepping on them should make virtually no difference in how...

    Yup, agreed. Done it many times in the past on a different application. I've seen how difficult it is to -fully- close off a line. So just sayin' to be aware.

    That's what the manual says actually but I'd be cautious. How do you know for sure that you've fully pinched off the line? Just a thought.

    It should hold for for a long time. Minutes. If yours drops that fast you have a leak somewhere. FPR being only one possible location. the others are: bad fuel injector(s), bad check valve or other issue in the fuel pump, an actual, fitting or hose, leak somewhere....

    Re: Daughters First Ty???

    I'm 110% on the driving thing. I remember sitting in my dad's lap just steering. Later offroading in a Jeep. Go-carting. Getting sidways in my parents '59 Pontiac. That was interesting. I like your parking lot practice. That will save her, uh, rear one day.

    Re: Daughters First Ty???

    You could also let her drive the Ty down the track but not on the street. I let my niece do that with the Sy and it was great experience for her.

    First, not that it's a bad idea but how do you know it needs replacement?

    Anyway. First get Sportmachines AFPR. Tools: 3/16 allen, 5/8 open-end and 3/4 open-end. Parts: one inj o-ring. (Sportmachines AFPR looks like it comes with an 0-ring.)...

    Re: Daughters First Ty???

    I agree. A decent safe, IE airbags, first car until she has driven maybe as much as a year. Meantime put her on the insurance and let drive the Ty with you in it. "Cute" doesn't cut it. Only experience. Her safety must be paramount. She may not like...
