Question :

I found an open vacuum port on the front end of the fuel rail . The hose was just laying below with a totally degridated elbow . I found a short piece of rubber hose that I made fit snugly .

What symptoms would be noticeable with that vacuum port open ?

Probably none. I think its the fuel return valve. If pressure gets to high when the engine rpm is low the difference in pressure causes the valve to open to relieve the high pressure by sendin the fuel back to the tank. I think? Lol

My XJ is behaving. She probably know's I'm ready to swap in my front shafts with new Spicer 760s and new front DS. She will wait to break until after that.

Picked up a free near new track bar bracket...the RC one if I recall. Looking at the full IRO Double Shear setup, but it is pricey to get it here.

Also need a pair of adjustable upper control arms, anyone have any used for an XJ for up to a 5" lift? PM me if you do...no luck finding any here.

Oh and what the hell happened to the COTY contest?? Bummer...I was so (not) in the lead! lol Thanks Chris for doing it, but what a hassle. Sounds like it is over for good now maybe?

Yea it's probably the best track bar for the money, I read on other forums that the IRO bushings are soft and offer too much deflection but I haven't had issues yet.
