Dropped some useless weight

Finally got around to removing the a/c condenser and compressor. Was a waste of weight as the a/c wasn't working anyway.

PS: went earlier in the day to Harbor Freight to pick up a few tools including a telescopic magnet - about 15 mins into the above project I lost a washer, pulled out the magnet and retrieved it. I'm glad I didn't trust myself.

Reconciled the Pelican order received for a gazillion seals, hoses, gaskets, inector lines, hardware and rubber bits that need to be replaced on a 39 year old car. All present and accounted for, thank you Bruce of Pelican!

Next is more cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. For some reason, my wife objects to my using the dish rack for this purpose. Very unreasonable... after all, itís her car.

Busy day with the 911, replaced right hood strut. At least it wasn’t the left.

Almost forgot... tested the thermostat per Boyt911sc -thanks Tony!

Works fine, though I was a bit concerned the water boiling point might not be hot enough at 3500 feet, made it but just barely.

This weekend I removed the rear suspension and ordered the required parts.

Out with the shocks, discs, brake calipers, park brake, banana arms, spring plates and assorted other bits and pieces. Things looked pretty original an very worn out.

Cleaned out the fender wells and degreased the undercarriage of the motor this weekend. I'm amazed by how much caked-on dirt the old cosmoline will absorb.

I replaced the two flexible fuel lines from the tunnel to engine. I did this on my 76 and the next night on my friends 77.
My old ones were very brittle and I could snap the fittings off the ends of them. I suppose they are 42 years old. Changed just in time I think, you know, BEFORE the fire.....

Haven't drove car yet. Still have to put brake calipers on and bleed brakes. I hope like a go kart or like my JCW mini cooper S. Whole front suspension and steering rebuilt and rear suspension rebuilt.

After the EFI/ITB conversion, the garage had the faint smell of raw gas. This didn’t work for my wife or for the fumes coming in the house through the dog door. The dog could care less.

Al Kosomal of X Faktory fame and purveyor of fine EFI systems came to the rescue. I reinstalled the charcoal filter with the fuel breather, connected the outgoing line to one of the stacks/rain hats, and the fresh air intake to the shroud. Grommets and hardware was cobbled together at Ace because Napa had nada. So now the best of both worlds, happy wife and mo power. And the dog sleeps on and could care less.

Good Job!

Did you do a write up about your EFI/ITB conversion? A friend was going to go from CIS to PMO carbs but was also considering the EFI/ITB route.
Was it difficult?

Iím interested in seeing more of this too. Iím considering converting my 3.2 to PMOs and mech advance distributor. Wonder if I will be unhappy with the fuel smell in my garage too. It would be nice to have a ready made remedy if required
