    the photo in the middle shows how tight it is behind the altenator.the dizzy leads are strugling for space.you might be able to see the fuel line in the foreground.The photo on the right shows where The heater water comes from.it just happened to be the same size as the brake vacuum line on the carby inlet manifold, so I just screwed the threaded pipe into the threaded hole in the head,meant for a sensor,I think.

    Default Far too neat!!

    Gee Jo after following your progress with this engine, I have visions of pipes everywhere and stop gap connections sworn into position, that is one neat layout and as Haakon says very professional. Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh!!

    Congratulations on a fine job.

    The head went onto the wreck, and it looked just as you described,ken.Even had an ice cream container on the floor with 2L of fuel as I hadn't connected the fuel lines. All the lines and pump, and new tank pick up were put on the new car and tested before the whole kit and caboodle were droped in. When the motor and box were on the hoist,I took the opportunity to wrap and tie all the wires,making it look standard.The air filter is still a bit shoddy,as it gets too hot in traffic,and the flexable boot has split a bit,but I'll get onto that soon.

    Cost heaps.totaly not worth it on a purely financial,basis, but I'd do it again in a flash,as I enjoy the challenge.Head$500.Reco and gasket Kit,$350,fuel lines and hoses.$100.fuel tank pickup,$70.Pump.$50.Various sensors,$100.New dizzi cap,leads,rotor button,plugs,TDC sensor,ETC,ETC, ETC.Oh, and about 25 ,18 hour days!!
    I have not been bothered to do accurate Fuel consumption figures, But with the carby, a tank would give me 340-370 Km, wheres now I'm getting about 10Km per L.Better when gentle and a bit worse when being a hoon.The bigest difference was on the highway,but cant remember the figures.

    Icon14 Now for the Badge!

    Jo, you now need to do the research and attach an appropriate "EFI" badge alongside the "Fuego" one. You deserve to show it off
