Summit Racing. I should have everything together tonight. I'll post some photos.

If you need any part numbers give me a shout.

I finished the fuel line from pump to carburetor. Not so sure I'm loving it too much but it works. Well kind of works, I have a leak in my pressure regulator and I think it's the flared fitting I used which shouldn't be flared. Anyways, here's a few shots of what I came up with.

...and yes, Matt, I have the upside down fuel pump. Funny thing is on my year jeep from other photos this seems to be the correct orientation?

Steve,

It sure looks pretty. Bummer about the leak. Did you make a bracket for the regulator? It's difficult to tell from the shine coming off your engine.

I've always read the regulator should go between the filter and carb. Have you found other info?

I'm anxious to see how your carb treats you.

Matt

Hi Matt,

The rigid line and fittings make it pretty sturdy, but I am going to make a bracket that attaches to the valve cover bolt that you can see in the second photo.

As far as placement goes this one goes before the filter. At least it says in the directions: http://static.summitracing.com/globa...a-4207(2)1.pdf

Tonight I'm going to hook up my electric choke to my 12v source (ignition switch), and then find that leak and fix it.

I also used these to connect to my other braided fuel line you can see it in the last photo:

Stay tuned...

Steve,

Interesting about the placement of the regulator. I notice the instructions also call for a second filter before the pump. That could explain it. Without that second filter, I think the regulator would stand a chance of getting clogged in that configuration.

Oh, I'm staying tuned all right, if anything, just for the photography. I doubt I'll go to the extent you did on my regulator/fuel line, however.

Matt

Holy Crap! I was letting my engine warm up and looked over at the headers...they were glowing red. Just the rear two ports on each side. Is this a timing issue or?

i"m letting it cool down for now...

Advance the timing a little. If that does not fix it richen up your idle circuit a little. Do one thing at a time. Lean condition can make headers glow red but so can retarded timing. Be careful of detonation/ping when you advance the timing.

That would have made a pretty pic.

Let us know if advancing the timing helps.

Matt,

Those headers are my brand new ceramic coated Doug's headers....I'm scared to go check on 'em right now.

I'll let you guys know what works. I do have my mixture screws in pretty far. I think 1 turn out right now. I'll start with advancing my timing first.

Thanks guys.

SC

Whew...Just went out to the garage and looked my little buddy over. Looked at the distributor and by the looks of where my vacuum advance was pointing I was probably a good 10* off from my initial visual setting. Pointing the vacuum advance more towards my power steering bracket (advancing timing) and everything is all better now.

Thanks again guys, this really got me worried.

I need to make that bracket for my fuel pressure gauge, and I''ll be back to Dada's "Golden Tuning Thread".

Do any of you guys keep everything you take off of your jeep? Just seems I can't get rid of things I remove as I feel it was original and I must keep it...for originality sake. I have a two barrel intake, tie rod, drag link, front and rear drive shaft, motorcraft 2100 carb, valve covers, power steering bracket, steering shaft, etc...

Do I need an intervention...if so, please advise...

drag link, tie rod and drive shafts are handy to have as spares on the trail just in case...regarding the other stuff? I gave away or tossed mine and I now regret that because there are plenty of people here on the forum that could have used some of them...

Hi Mike,

Glad you chimed in...Hope things are well with you and your family!

I spent a bunch of time on your blog and really love the business/lifestyle you have developed. Family is number one...keep up the good work with your girls. They have a great father!

Anyways, that's my point. There was a post a while back where I had the part that someone needed, but thought I just can't part with it.

Now...it's just sitting in my garage taking up space...

I did however give away my leaf springs to a young forum member and was able to send them to him along with shocks. The appreciation he had for those items was priceless, but then again these weren't OEM items...but never the less these leaf springs have new life...

SC
