  1. Very nice. I'm a bit surprised ITG didn't have that hole predrilled. Very easy to overlook, for sure. How much gap do you have from the mouth of the stacks to the inside layer of foam filter? The more air space you can put in front of the stack, the better off you will be.

  3. Want boost but really?

    Here's a solution http://baurspotting.blogspot.com/2012/09/bmw-2002-dragster-warning-purists-may.html?m=1 Ed
  4. This fabric is for sale in the classifieds section.
  5. NGK BP5ES or BP6ES. Where do you set your ignition timing? Incorrect timing or sloppy dizzy can cause incomplete burn and fouled plugs. Side drafts benefit from more ignition advance early in the curve. What type of air filter are you using? Make sure the bowl vent is not obstructed (recent thread had that vent blocked by the RamFlo backing plate) Ed
  6. Hard to Troubleshoot Rough Idle

    I'm with Simeon. Your engine seems to idle pretty well in the video. The 292 cam will have some lumpiness at a low idle. Increasing your idle speed to 1000 should give you the improvement you're looking for. Idle speed by the book is 950rpm... with a 264 cam. To chase the very best idle, adjust your valves first, clean and gap the plugs, confirm your timing with a light, and tweak the mixture screw on the Weber...but really, I think your splitting hairs here. Go thrash it in the twisties Ed
  7. While Barney repaired some rusty inner rocker sections, I prepped, fit the outer rockers. Was a busy day capped off with getting the driver's side installed and the passenger side is all ready to go in the morning. Weather is perfect, so hopefully we can get most all the panels repaired in the next few days. Ed
  8. That would do it!!! Glad it was something simple...still, maddening. Glad you found it. Ed
  9. Perhaps your accelerator pump on the Weber isn't delivering a good shot of fuel? Do you only pump the accelerator once, just to set the choke plate? Every M10 seems to have it's own unique start up procedure. Some will flood if you pump more than once, other need a couple kicks to get things going on a cold morning... Adding a bit of advance would probably help your situation.
  10. Hmmm... You have a clear fuel filter under the hood? Does it have fuel in it before cranking? You might peer down the bowl vent and make sure there is fuel in the bowl before cranking to eliminate fuel supply from the equation. Some engines like a couple pumps of the accelerator to fire off when cold. Ignition system in proper working order? Clean plugs and timing set properly?
  11. Trim delete logic?

    Autozone trim. Cheap, looks very good.
  12. And that air leak will allow fuel to drain back from the pump into the tank... making for long crank times because the fuel line is empty. Replace all soft lines with tightly fitting rubber lines, proper clamps, and for good measure, use the check valve near the tank. My $0.02...
  13. Final engine tune - no joy yet!!

    Double check your plug wires are fully seated and in correct firing order. Look for vacuum leaks, vacuum leak will give a lean pop-backfire. Hope its something simple. Ed
