    What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Barney, you are making such great progress with your car. I enjoy your progress reports. However, You need to slow down. You are making the rest of us look bad. Thanks for the motivation. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Agree with iinca. the changes I would make it the ICE Auto AC would be to install a Spal fan and to use a trinary switch with a heat sensor on the bottom of the radiator. This would give you some extra margin of safety at low speeds while in slow traffic. With the addition of the condenser on the front of my radiator, my car tends to get hot in parade speed driving on a hot day(high 90’s). The condenser provides in my kit was a regular condenser. A larger parallel flow condenser would be nice too. If I were ICE, I would update their Clardy clone kit with the modern improvements recommended in Rob Siegel’s book to have as close to perfect A/C for a 2002. One of the nice things about the ICE kit is that everything is there, it is new, and you have good instructions. You can upgrade things as you assemble them, but everything fits together pretty well and the A/C will handle Alabama heat in the summertime to cool things off a little.

    I have the ICE Auto Air system in my ‘75 and I like it a lot. My car originally had a Clardy aftermarket A/C system installed. The ICE system is a copy of the Clardy so the install was easy. Rob Siegel’s book “Just Needs a Recharge” is required reading before playing with A/C.

    Lynx Manifold technical question

    Thanks. I will look at my down pipe to see where I can mount an O2 sensor. Ideally, I would like to mount the sensor on the collector tube rather than one of the individual tubes. I have a tii Manifold and downpipe. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Lynx Manifold technical question

    Thanks for the input. I am now strongly considering installing a wideband O2 sensor. Considering the 10 and 2 requirement for mounting the Lamba sensor, where are these best installed? In previous discussions most wideband 02 sensors appear to be installed in the down tube vertically between the small space between the tunnel and XMSN. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Lynx Manifold technical question

    Thanks. I just richened cylinders 1/4 and leaned cylinders 2/3 a little and took the car for a drive. After the engine cools, I will pull a couple of plugs to see how they look. Anyone have any recommendations as to brands or sources for a wide band A/F sensor? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Lynx Manifold technical question

    Thanks. I am strongly considering that. It is the right way to do it as recommended by Pierce Manifold. I just have limited space with the 5 speed and want to do it right when I get the time. I need to mark the location where I want the sensor on the down pipe, remove the down pipe to have the bung installed, then put everything back together. Install the gauge.

    Lynx Manifold technical question

    Thanks, that helps a lot. Duh for me. The front barrel serves 1&4 while the rear barrel serves 2&3. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. I love my newly installed Lynx Manifold and 45 DCOE. The car runs really great, but In checking the plugs I am trying to get the idle mixture sorted out. After inspecting the plugs after idle, two plugs are correct, while two are rich. I know that one barrel of the carb serves cylinders 1&4, while the other serves cylinders 2&3. Unfortunately, I did not pay attention when installing the carbs to verify which runner went to which carb barrel. My question is, which carb barrel serves which cylinder? Thanks, Frank

    Original MOMO Alpina steering wheel

    Nice wheel! I had one that came with my car. To give some a idea of what it costs to professionally recover one of these wheels. I recall, I paid over $400 to get my wheel recovered by Kraft Customs in TX. Beautiful!

    I finished installing the Lynx manifold and DCOE 45 on my ‘75 and tuned it. Works great! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
