Lobby / Re: Today I... "Redux Edition"
« Last post by roadking77 on Today at 06:41:42 AM »
Is there a subscription fee with those?  I like it. My wife put one in one of our rooms in the house to of all things keep an eye on the pets during the day. I think it cost something like $30 or so and I was amazed at how well it works. Only problem is if I step in during the day for something which happens often, she will send me a text "what are you doing home?", LOL.  I have a wired system in my garages that backs up to a hard drive but no real time monitering. I want to get a couple of these in the near future.

Charlie, glad to see your car here again! That EFI install will be a fantastic edition to your motor. Just keep in mind that sometimes you have to play around with the settings to get the idle and off idle tuning right. The main fueling tables will self learn and adjust based on feedback from the wideband O2 sensor. Keep in mind that you'll need to calibrate the timing and other settings yourself. Also keep the main wiring as far from wiring for the coils, radio, and plug wires as possible. These can emit radio noise that can interfere with the sensors and cause issues.

So with the 7 pin distributor, does that allow for the ECU to control timing? If so that's a very smart move.

No offense taken Scarebird.

Aussieta, that is another fantastic suggestion. That is a gorgeous color on Trans Am's

That makes sense.  I have a 72 shop manual, and I don't see any wiring diagram for this system, but I was looking at the engine and maybe I should go back and look at the accelerator pedal.   The power supply has to be shown somewhere. I did find an illustration in the "air cleaner" section, but it may be outdated based on Mace1971's comment.  These illustrations are tiny but I was able to zoom in and get some legible info.  I will include the whole thing here just for posterity.

Hi,
good job and your feeling with the project :cool:
I'am from France and I may have to get out my 400 with headers on my Formula 1977.
I need to change the exhaust gaskets, and may have/need to remove the engine from the car.

Question, you seem to have remove both the trans and the engine at the same time, right ?
What is the minimum height to ceiling to work on  the removing the engine usiingng your workshop crane ?
Headers render the removing more complicated ?
Thank's and carry on your project on your way
Sorry for my English writing.

Cheers  :lol:

i have one i have used before, intake is already off and its not a carb intake anyhow. intake or bell housing/ water pump may be a safer alternative curious to see the clutch that came apart.

my take is
it's your car, paint it how you want it
i went through this same dilemma, took nearly 20 years before i made a decision
i always wanted a martinique blue trans am
bought a black trans am with the intention of painting it blue
then found it was numbers matching Y84
, finally decided as i have no intention of selling it, paint it blue
when i'm dead someone else can restore it to black and gold

Thanks Kerry!

Well, I can sleep a little better now. I installed a cheap wifi camera with alarm in the one side of my shop to watch my baby sleep.

Night vision.



Night vision when motion detected (turns on a little LED light and an optional siren)
