    if I lower it, it will be a mild drop on some proper 80s 15" wheels
    I can't lose capacity or make the ride worse

    something like this

    its nothing that I'm actively pursuing, but if an opportunity presented itself, I'd consider it. nice thing, it's super cheap and easily reversed if I don't like it.

    but i need to do this carb, then exhaust, and i need a plastic bed liner.

    I'd leave it the way it is and not lower it. It would look nice with some period correct wheels or some other Toyota wheel from that generation.

    unfortunately, all the cool old school celica wheels etc are 4-lug. these are 5x4.5 but that means i have lots to choose from.

    well, the old carb is out, the new one is fitted, the linkage is hooked up and works nicely.
    i have lots of vacuum ports and thermo switches that are no longer used that need to be tidied up.
    i have to decide where to pull vacuum from for the advance, and hook up 12v to the choke.
    couple more evenings should do it.

    My Mini had a Weber 45 on it when I first got it... Weber's are damn loud.

    boooooooooWAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    part of the problem is the lack of a noise supressing air filter setup.

    lol, I didn't say they don't sound good. They are just a bit loud for what I would like a daily to be.

  19. #119
    heh it's a 32 year old pickup with no sound deadening in it.

    so, think this was leaking for awhile? lol.



    thankfully, toyota was smart to design the booster in a way that it won't fill up with fluid



    cleaned things up a bit



    bench bled the new rig



    installed it and did some further engine bay cleaning



    and since my mityvac is broken and my bleed helper went to bed early, I did some additional cleaning, including scrubbing out the washer/overflow bottle. this engine bay is going to come out like new.

    if this engine lets go in my ownership lifetime, I would definitely replace it with at 22RET
