Re: Accelerator Pump Diaphragm

I have never lubed these parts but I have put a dab of motor oil on the accel pump actuating arm pivot and the roller at the other end of the actuating rod.

Re: Relay wiring madness

Thanks guys. The wires are removed and I can start rebundling the remains. Out of eight relays under the hood, I removed seven. The only relay left is for the horn.

Re: Lacia wheels

Brad, I cross posted this ad on Xweb looking for pics of them on an X and one guy posted with a pic of them on a spider.

Re: spider in-head thermostat gooseneck WANTED

Richard, doesn't everyone have a lathe in their garage and can cut down that flange?

Re: 131 oil sump breather

What are those large L-shaped ports on the top of each manifold runner?

Agree with Brad that you don't need the factory vacuum line but there is a port on the #1 and #3 venturi for that vacuum line if you want to go that route.

Re: spider in-head thermostat gooseneck WANTED

No functional reason not to use a modified external thermostat gooseneck, just esthetics.
If I could not find one I would go that route or better yet have one welded up to close that outlet.

4mm pistons create interference motor?

I don't think this has ever been discussed here. One of my 1500 non-interference X motors has HC pistons and is now clearly an interference motor. Does putting the typical HC street pistons on a 2L motor (4mm domes) make that motor an interference motor? Just curious.

Kudos to everyone, as well as Brad. I don't know about others but I have used this resource many times.
