Q. How is that sub under the seat, thinking of doing the same. Does it sound good?

The sub turned out really good. I like that you barely have to turn it up to get some of the low end, makes for a longer life.

So I'm getting a rebuilt warm up regulator and a rebuilt fuel distributor. I am going to clean all the hard lines going to the injectors.

My question is to get the injectors cleaned or to just buy new. I have done some reading about it and found that you can have them cleaned but they still wont be as good as new ones.

Depends on what shape your injectors are in when they get sent out for cleaning, a good injector shop should flow test them afterwards and will be able to tell you if any need to be replace.

I've sent multiple sets of injectors out for cleaning, usually as a part of maintenance, the only set of injectors I've ever actually managed to break was all on me haha (was tuning for e85, and might have opened the pulse width, and pressure a bit too much for already maxed out stock injectors hahaha)

Where would be a good place to send them for cleaning and flow testing for the CIS

You know on the East Coast I really couldn't tell you, CIS is not as uncommon as you may think it is

Everything coming out of Germany in the late 70's through the 80's was unfortunately using toilet bowl injection, VW's, Audi's, Porsche's... I think Merc was the only one not using CIS

I would call some local Porsche/ VW shops and if they're kind enough they'll let you know who they use.

I would just convert to Megasquirt in the future, its really not that hard of a conversion!

Called Tony with Translog in York, Pa. He can clean, back flush and test flow for me for $20 each. Sounds good to me.

I got my fuel system taken apart last night and just as I thought. The plunger was stuck in the fuel distributor, so my fuel was running full open and flooding the cylinders. I am getting the fuel distributor and wur ready to send out to get rebuilt ones and I got the fuel injectors out to give to Tony tomorrow to clean, back flush and flow test. I should be up and running in a couple weeks. I am getting excited to finally be able to drive and enjoy the car.

Tomorrow I have my 5th or 6 treatments. Almost done with chemo.

I am doing good. I haven't had much energy the past week, but I will be sending the fuel distributor and wur down to Brian at RarlyL8 early next week to be rebuilt. I can't wait either. this weekend I will be doing some dry walling though. Take a break from mechanics. My family has a cabin south of PennState that we are in the process of building and my dad and I will be hanging some dry wall on the ceiling in the main room. I recruited some help because of my lack of energy but we'll try and get what we can done.

I need to get some pictures up of my progress so far.

I will be at the cabin this weekend. We didn't get the dry wall finished. I ran out of energy half way through.

Dang, Andy -- if you have enough energy to do drywall work you must be feeling at least a little better; I'll take that as a good sign! Manhandling panels of sheetrock is no easy feat . . . especially overhead when doing ceilings.

Good on ya, brother -- holding out positive thoughts for your speedy and complete recovery.

Hey everyone,

Tomorrow is my last chemotherapy treatment. Then in 3 weeks I will have a PET-Scan to make sure everything is gone and possible radiation treatment for two weeks. At least I will be done with the toxic poison side of all this after tomorrow.

Thanks everyone for all the support you have given me through this tough time and also for all the great advise on getting the 911 back on the road.

Right now I am just waiting for rebuilt parts to come back for the fuel system and I will be on the road. Can't wait.

Wow! You are a very talented dude. I wish you the best. I love the 55 Chevy BTW, I had that exact same car and color combination when I was a kid. Bought it for $50 in a wrecking yard and built it into a screaming fast street/drag racer back in the early 70's.

I got my injectors back last week and they are up to par with flow and spray pattern. Thanks to Tony with Translog. I order the new seals from pelican and now I am just waiting for the rebuilt FD and WUR to come back. Getting excited.

Andy, good to hear that your almost done with your treatments. Can't wait for the good results from your scan either!

I will hopefully be doing my trans leak this week (engine/tranny out and seperated, then back together all in one day is the plan).

Other than that mine has been running fantastic. Glad to hear you found a problem with your FD. Looking forward to hearing about your first ride!

Cheers
