Re: Any experience with the Knocksense system?

Safeguard has filters built in for the air cooled valvetrain noise and can be linked to electronic ignitions like Megajolt.

Re: Clutch adjustment

The currently available throw out bearings are different from the originals. They are made to remain in contact with the pressure plate and turn all the time.

Re: Turbo AFR numbers...

Ray Sedman (who supplied my wideband setup) told me not to trust the AFR readings at idle. Set it where it runs best and forget it. Use AFR to tune your rods/jets to maintain the desired AFR when cruising and under power.

Re: Fuel controller

I have one too, great way to convert to an electric pump without all the oil pressure and inertia switch wiring. Retains the stock engine bay look as you don't need the oil pressure sensor, etc.

Re: 180 improvements

My recommendations based on my experiences for someone who wants to improve drivability and performance somewhat but generally retain a mostly stock look to the engine bay and car: -Get rid of the original turbo heads and use modified 95HP heads or 62-63 cylinder heads to eliminate spark knock issue...

Re: LED TAIL LIGHT BULBS

I installed full exterior LED bulbs from SuperbrightLEDs.com along with their LED flasher which does require it's own ground. On my EM I was able to easily ground it at the turn signal switch (which is screwed to the steering column right next to the fuse box), not sure if it's that easy on your '69...

Re: Rod knock?

Once you have ruled out the lifters you can find a rod knock by grounding out each spark plug with a test light, one at a time. If the noise changes on one you found the location of your problem.

Re: OPGI Catalog Delayed

Not trying to start rumors but this whole thing has had me wondering from the beginning if OPGI is buying out Clarks and merging them into their group of brands.

Re: '64 transaxel dipstick attach question
