    Woodworking and my '02. Hiking and trail running for breaks from my projects. Psychiatry as a day job and a professional passion.

  1. I've dug through past posts on the subject but still am unclear on what alternatives might work, do you know specifically what those solutions are?
  2. Specifically checking out these from WN: https://www.wallothnesch.com/en/door-stop-front-and-rear-41-14-13.html It seems likely they would be compatible, but wonder if anyone has given them a try.
  3. Glad you got it done after all this time. I do think that the fuel filter should be between the tank and the pump, though.
  4. I'd considered that, too, the hoses likely keeping it in place, maybe I'll end up doing that instead of drilling holes because I am definitely concerned about that as well. This is the valve I purchased, keep in mind of course that I haven't gotten everything put together to ensure it works for this application but it seems very likely it will: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B001B7BUAU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  5. My 02 didn't have a heater valve in it, PO just had it pumping the heat 24/7... I didn't want to buy the $320 OEM valve so found one that will work online for just $15. Had to make a replacement bracket for it in either case as the plastic broke off as it does for every one of these things. This is what I came up with, will get it riveted in place once I get a rivet gun... Thought it might inspire some others out there.
  6. Thought you fellas might get a kick out of this, wanted to test my heater core without needing to go out to buy anything to do it with. Fixed it up like this, topped my small compressor's regulator at 15psi, then submerged it and luckily had no leaks! Gotta improvise best we can during these unusual times. Stay safe and healthy out there.
  7. And before one of you gets a chance to call me out on it I do see that I need to switch the spark leads at the distributor to 1-3-4-2 counterclockwise
  8. Spent much of the evening putting the engine back together, nice to see the new exhaust and intake/carb in place finally. So happy to have this grand project to work on during total isolation.
  9. I have the same problem on my stock seat... will be watching this to see how you can work it out!
  10. Ah right on, I'll get those instead. Looks like a better product and also I've had good experiences with you guys at IE. Thank you!
  11. Found some stainless JIC M8 nuts with the 12mm head, should be here next week. Really appreciate the help.
  12. Maybe not much but I took an hour yesterday to pull the unique ball head studs out of the destroyed old bracket and weld them into a bracket I "fabricated" out of some 16ga.
  13. Haven't found this problem posted by anyone else anywhere on the internet which makes me think I am missing something really, really simple. But... I can't tighten the nuts on the bottom studs because there is no clearance for the nuts to spin. What am I missing here?
  14. Hi, bumping this thread because I am looking for the same piece. Anybody?
