    Looks like its going good! See you got a new best in the sig there :thumbs2:

    I need to get my sn95 out there soon for a few shake down runs before tearing into it for upgrades.

    Dont feel bad Ryan, I tried firing the Maverick up a few nights ago after sitting for about 5 months and its pissing fuel out of the carb again:mad::mad::mad:

    I swear I will go through that carb one more time and thats it! This will be the third time in couple years. If it acts up again I will throw it out into the street, run it over with the truck numerous times, light it on fire, kick it, light on fire again, piss on it to put out the flames, and straight in the trash can it goes. DIE double pumper DIE!

    Than fuel injection they always play nice:rofl:

    As long as the thread is allowed to live then I guess its ok if it lives here. Just need everybody to find it.

    I didnt get much done on the car today. I got the timing cover off and need to find a fuel pump eccentric now. Anybody in the aread have one?

    Can you see if you have one for a 3/8" bolt, the early ones were 5/16. And hopefully one with the tabe sticking out to hold it in place. Otherwise I already have the longer dowel pin if I need to go with that style.

    If I get my Mustang running tomorrow maybe I can come by. I took the day off because the Mustang crapped out and I've already tried the easy stuff, distributor, coil, TFI ignition module. But still no spark. SO I'll be digging a little deeper tomorrow.

    Your right Adam, this kind of thing is all to common with these cars. Its usually one of two things, the TFI module or the ignition switch. I was thinking TFI module last night because of the way it died. Now im thinking I'll try the ignitiont switch. Its only $13 and about a 1/2 mile walk.

    Yeah my ignition switch is jacked up (previous owner had car stolen) and I always think I need to replace it. Its always something else. And FYI never think a new distributor from autozone means its not the disty. Between probes and mustangs I have personally had 5 DOA right out of the box.

    Did you see the enter at your own risk in the small print? :rofl:

    Anybody is welcome to the thread, but more then likely you wont care about anything we say here unless you want to keep tabs on how many times Gene has to remind me I havent changed my fuel filter.
