2016 Catch-up Part 2

In addition to rebuilding the carb, I also installed an electric fuel pump and regulator.  The Weber carbs are picky when it comes to fuel pressure and the mechanical pump was providing too much pressure.

 

I started a post about trying to use a regulator with a mechanical pump, and it just wasn't feasible without having to run fuel hose all over the engine bay.  It also details some of the part I bought

Carb reinstalled with fuel pump block off plate and new inline filter (Mr. Gasket universal filter)

 

The fuel pump block off is Empi 31-3011 as used on air-cooled VWs.  You can find them all over ebay for cheap, or pay more for the same item from a BMW aftermarket supplier

You can also see the cooling system is finished and electric fan wired up with a coolant temp switch in the coolant housing.  The heater core lines are just plugged at this time because the heater box hasn't been put back in.

Holley 12-804 Fuel Regulator installed:

I wanted to mount a fuel pressure gauge, but had issues finding a good one.  The oil filled ones weren't accurate unless you vented them every time you wanted to check them and they could only be mounted with the vent straight up.  The non-oil gauge just bounced too much.  I ended up adding a fuel schrader valve so I could hook up a typical fuel pressure gauge tester:  http://www.dieselorings.com/schrader-valve-fuel-injection-rated-1-8-mnpt.html

 

Fuel pump in trunk, Carter P60504 inline pump, includes a filter.

I replaced the leaky Ansa center resonator with another Ansa (non-sport)

While I was at it, pulled the rear bumper off in prep for a tuck:

And pulled the diamond plate out of the trunk to see how bad it was:

Yep, it's bad:

While I was doing the cooling system, I got rid off the overspray in the headlight area and painted the grill.  Also mounted some new Hella lights - https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B001G72SKQ/

And also painted the wiper motor cover and arms to get rid of the orange overspray:

No pictures, but replaced a leaky rear wheel brake cylinder and installed a new ST front sway bar to match the rear ST bar.  I thought the one I had was stock, turns out it was an old ST bar, but was a bit rusty and the bushings were shot.
