Thanks guys, I ordered some new washer stuff from summit. I like the washer idea, the threads themselves are big I hope there is enough room to fit inside. I'll post up the results next week. Merry Christmas!
I'm home injured and can't run to the shop right now.
I did it over 20-25 years ago, so I really don't remember how much trouble the inner fender washer was??
I do remember trying just one and it still seeped a little and went to both and it's perfect.
IIRC, it was partly my fault, I over drilled the hole, and the bulk head fit in, instead of being tight and being screwed in.
A smaller hole would probably seal better when you actually have to screw in the fitting.
Hey, it was my 1st cell, I learned the hard way, "as usual".
I got a set of Earl's Plumbing Dow ty-Seals #178117ERL installed and dropped 5 gallons in the cell and not a drop so far. Been 2 hrs, keeping fingers crossed and plan on dropping in another 5 gallons tomorrow evening to add weight & volume to the mix. Can't thank everyone enough who chimmed in to help me fix this. No more gas fumes!!!
OK, 2 engines being built. I want to switch to E-85.
Some guys say stick with gas, some say switch to pure meth, some like & use E-85, but only from a barrel, not pump.
Does anyone know for absolute sure what the loss or gain is from switching to E-85.
I have always heard you will always...
When av gas is used with an oxygen sensor, How long before the sensor is junk? Is there a hard and fast rule on time or it depends upon location and usage? What tricks can be used to maybe help shield it from contamination and still be effective?
As in terms of static comp ratio, timing, and boost. This is with two bullseye S475's w/1.32 on a conventional headed BBC in a drag boat that will run very cool water temps. This is a 555cid aluminum engine and flashes straight to 73-7500rpms and stays there for the duration of the pass, maybe...
