    I saw a skitzcunt/wounder rolling in a shit brown datsun with primer patches this morning. It's actually quite the sleeper with its rugged appearance

    Fancy new school engine won't go?

    It involved giving them to a shop, and paying money. Depending on what/who you know bugdet maybe $25 per injector?

    Damn straight! With a nice clean spray pattern and NPD 100+ octane gas, I'm quite looking forward to 'tec'n it hard myself.

    Phosphoric Acid Metal Prep

    I have heard a mate say they weren't allowed to use some stainless steel cleaner at his work anymore. (He's a TIG welder) perhaps that had that shit in it? I also saw a tech bulletin at a brake shop once saying that certain kinda of brake stuff will convert into that if the car has been burned out. And it will keen burning you in till you get an injection to reverse it.

    When I first read your build thread, I thought sound more wounding than a pipe bomb wrapped in 12 layers of 4 inch nails. But as your thread has progressed, it's actually grown on me. You can pretend you're an early '80s playboy zipping around in your proper british sports car.........

    I dropped the injectors off to get serviced this morning. It used to honk out a monster cloud of black when the 'Tec kicked in. So there's no harm in optimising their performance. Nice spray pattern should improve fuel economy too.

    Had another fuck with it tonight. It's only firing on one cylinder. Pulled all the plugs. All bar one were dry as a bone. The other one was black. Blocked injectors?

    Phosphoric Acid Metal Prep

    I've used Kephos 253. It's phosphoric acid Bourne in a solution of xylene. Dries fast etc. But wear a respirator. Otherwise it will blow your head off. (Even usng it outdoors it'll make you high as fuck)

    So the Mrs pride and joy has been getting a birthday after a seven plus year park up. It ran when parked, #ranwhenparked but when we began trying to put it back on the road, it no go. car is an EF8 crx with a B16A. The fuel pump was stone dead. I bought a new one and installed it.(Yay for rockauto!) Fuel.tank was badly caked with fuel scale. Had it chemically cleaned out. New fuel filter. Fresh gas. new pump made the right noises, but when cranking the engine would only give the odd fire. Then I got paranoid that being from 'Murica the pump might not be an EFI pressure one. Last night I rigged up a pressure gauge and tested the fuel pressure. Came up to what you'd expect for EFI. about the only other thing I can think of is maybe the injectors are blocked to shit with old gas. Before I hook them out and have them cleaned, what other things might cause this problem? I know what most bits on the engine do, but there's some of the white man's magic in there is mysterious to me.
