  1. you left out an option... single 45(or 40) DCOE. probably the best option for you. long runners. better mixture management than duals. cheaper and easier to setup and tune. looks cool. sidedraft noise. more than enough carb for a stock engine. there is a manifold made specifically for this.
  2. 🤣😎 but if you are doing all that, you have entirely eliminated the need for the U-bracket....throw it away.
  3. Looks just like stock brackets.... Just further back. This is how bmw installed 5spds at the factory. Search for the 5spd install thread. Extensive detail.
  4. Yes there is. Bolt on real support brackets and throw the U bracket away. It just isn't that hard to do this right. Seriously, it is simple to add a set of factory style brackets further back in the tunnel.
  5. mine did. the bracket does not fail, the bracket slowly bends down because of the cantilever weight on the tunnel brackets that are not designed to take that load angle. trans dropping leads to driveshaft misalignment....guibo failure. it is just a really bad design. all it takes is looking at the load patterns for a few minutes to realize the problem. plus, if the factory did not put the mounts in EXACTLY parallel, the end of the U could be up or down from where it should be making guibo alignment an issue right out of the box. U brackets suck. if you are gonna put a 5spd in...do it right. attach new brackets to the tunnel.
  6. iirc, m42 bolt pattern for trans is different than M10. if your 5spd is for an M10, won't work with M42.
  7. whatever you do, DO NOT use a kit that has a U-shaped bracket to support the back of the trans. get one that has separate real mounts that attach to the tunnel.

    great video!! love watching rally drivers. (as long as you mute the sound....)
  10. This appears kinda funny.... Concerned about torch starting a fire, but not concerned about fire from cutting wheel sparks or MIG welding heat/sparks....😎😎 The pedals are removable so this work can be done off the car. Replace the bushings while they are out. Another possible solution for some is shoes with narrow soles like driving shoes, wrestling shoes or water shoes.
  11. drove a 73 2002 when i entered the military in 1977. drove a 75 2002 when i retired from military in 2018.
  12. like toby indicated....the engine is not the big difference between all those classes. read the rule books! figure out what the rest of the car fits into best. then build the engines to the rules of that class. it really helps to have an engine builder that knows the rules.
  13. Have a bunch of these cheap spring blocks put in the spring to keep it from compressing. https://www.autozone.com/suspension-system-coil-springs-and-lift-lowering/coil-spring-booster/surebilt-twist-in-front-coil-spring-booster/540609_0_0
  14. have you done any tuning of the carbs? do you have a selection of jets? what are the current jets? do you have a WBO2 sensor installed? way too many variables for anyone to say if what you have is right or wrong. you have to test and tune. have you read books on how DCOE's work? reading, learning, and tweaking them is all part of the fun of DCOE's. if not, start here. https://www.amazon.com/Build-Power-Dellorto-Carburettors-SpeedPro/dp/1845849590/ref=asc_df_1845849590/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312075063032&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16286245507489995657&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9008187&hvtargid=pla-570654323504&psc=1
  15. instead of using the "img" option for the link, use the "direct" link option. been using this method from pbucket for a long time. direct link option: img link option: [URL=https://app.photobucket.com/u/mblytle/a/3c2dea84-55dc-44a7-a6c8-ad483e12b4c0/p/28f62407-047a-42c0-adfd-fc991ac6f4da][IMG]https://hosting.photobucket.com/albums/pp59/mblytle/2002%20heater%20valve%20rebuild/.highres/2013-12-14_13-01-35_361.jpg[/IMG][/URL] direct option works.
