    Tool Fabrication.

    When you have some free time, and don't feel like spending money on something you can fab up for $0, you do this..

    Bearing race installer..

    Cut an old race, squeeze it together in a clamp, and weld it back together to make it just a smidge (technical term) smaller than the new race size.

    Weld in a crossbar:

    [​IMG]

    Weld on a rod for a handle

    [​IMG]

    Tap in your new races in no time at all.

    3200 spring

    Install an upgraded spring for MORE POWERwesport

    Here is the inside of the top of my fuel injector where there is a little governor spring that gets changed to make the fuel curve act quicker, giving more usable power and torque for improved driveability

    Here's the inside of the FI unit where the spring is housed

    [​IMG]

    This is the lower sector of the FI that the part previously shown mounts to.

    Fighting rust

    How about filling your roof with a rust converter to stop the eventual decay of your 20 year old pig ?

    Here I removed the sun shade to access the inside of the roof as well
