Or you can just use the Lisle tool and whack 'em with a hammer. It works really well.

Idk man. those bags are expensive. I would be wasting a whopping 1.7 cents per bag. Idk if I can swing that.

In all seriousness tho. Great little trick. I will be doing this. Just gotta figure out what I wanna use to compress the spring now. Im leaning towards pvc and a c-clamp.

Yes, at least that's the same way my completely OEM from the factory untouched motor is.

You want to use the Lisle tool and a hammer. Seriously.

grr. there is one valve that is still too tight. measures in at .1mm gap with a 3.18mm shim. Spreadsheet says it should work. Places it at .1836 gap which is in spec (.18-.24). I guess I have to order a smaller shim. sigh.

So sad none of these peoples give you directions on drinking.

Remember, what is most important:

a\A) where is the best breakfast: / It's on the menu / "I can't describe what i want but it's something like this, with this,"

B) it's the same as A), only you realize, **** yes I am super tired, give me a room, and I will llive to race another day"."

C) you drive theses dudes home anyay #notrepayble

Nobody posts like Faeflora used to post. Last night I felt inspired to try. Not as good as one of his truly incomprehensible rambles, but a decent effort.

Today I installed the flow force 960cc injectors.

Out with the old FF 640s. (going up for sale, PM for first dibs)



The new.


These filters are so cool.


They slip inside the inlet like so


The whole assembly. Such quality.


So I threw them in, fired right up, idles pretty good, revs up smoothly. I changed req fuel. But my AFRs are pegged at 7.5. I know if it shows 7.4, thats a fault code. But its rock solid at 7.5, not 7.4. Du ***.

I deleted that number from my phone, but I made sure to save it in my encrypted cloud file first. For, you know, special occasions.

Oh, I know what you mean, except I usually change their names to something like; "Psycho chik#69 Do Not Answer" or something like that.

Ok, I might answer #69 anyway
