    Re: Transmission input shaft

    There is no gasket for the front cover, only the rear. Use a sealing compound on the front. On the rear, sealing compound on the case and grease on the cover.

    Mike,

    Is the head bolted down to the block yet? If not, a few measurements with good calipers would help. What is the head thickness, how far below the head surface are the intake valves, how...

    I'm not getting any rebuttal on my argument that jet sizes are not the problem but most likely accelerator pumps given the statement:

    Re: Removing Fuel Gauge - Advice please

    I don't believe that's the issue. If there is an open contact in the tank sending unit or the wire to it is broken (infinite resistance), the fuel gauge will go to full. If there is a short to...
  16. Re: Adjusting Linkages to Idle stop verse WOT stop

    Wouldn’t hesitation from jetting occur mostly during transition from idle to main jets so in a limited rpm/load range but injection pump issues would occur across the entire spectrum except perhaps...

    In my experience the most common cause of hesitation or even complete stalling is accelerator pumps not injecting immediately on pedal movement or from insufficient quantity. Poorly synchronized...
