Pinto on R1 Bike Carbs
Just got a new manifold from Bogg Bros. It is a work of art! The carbs
are 40mm off a '98 Yamaha YZF R1.
It was a little lean and was spitting back out of the inlets but I went one
size up in the idle jets and now it is very well behaved.
Summer's car "rebuild".
Summer's 16th birthday present, 78 Mustang II Coupe.
She likes old cars, we didn't want anything with HP as a first car, plus
not a "big" car either with C pillar blind spot. That little Mustang was about the only choice to
find something dirt cheap, fixable and looks classic.
Nothing too fancy in the refreshing, this car will end up on a highschool
Rebuild the little 2.3L engine, great on gas, 28-30 MPG on the highway.
Block 60 over.
For maximum grip upgraded the 13" to Front 205/55R15, Rear 215/60R15
sitting on Basset D hole Wheels.
Primer sealer/filler/urethane paint is PPG. Yellow is 2010 Camaro single stage urethane.

Ford Ranger 2.3 2300 - EFI Delete - Carb mod - 8 Plug head
The first ever carbed 8 plug 2300 head I've ever seen. Thanks to my buddy
Zach for making this possible. The intake was all a guess as far as runner
length and plenum size. I knew I was going for torque and MPG...so we
tried to make the runners as long as we could...the rest is just what
fit:). The carb is the Motocraft...Autolite 2100 (best carb ever made).
Better than EFI if you ask me. Ford had it on lock down with patents
untill EFI came out. So simple you could rebuild in the dark. Distributor
is a billet procomp pro. Neep Hp plug wires. NGK plugs, 96' ranger
headers, no cats just stock muffler, complete EFI removal. Ebay digital
gauges, I used a cheap no name ebay fuel pump. The carb was used off a
1965 Mustang and rebuilt
with a $16 kit. Thanks again Zach for the aluminum and fabbing skills:) I
still cannot believe how good this thing runs. Thank god for 70's

1971 ford 2.0 pinto engine
1971 ford pinto 4cyl overhead cam engine, has around 50K miles, I dug it
out of my dads shop while cleaning, it had been sitting for around 12
years. We poured fresh fuel in and cleaned the points, and after a few
failed attempts caused by faulty starter solenoids, we jumped the cables
and she just fired right up =P sold it to an 86 year old man for a 1927
model A to sit in parades. His original engine 27 will cruise 70 MPH all
day long, but is hard to drive at low speeds, it overheats and has ancient
controls, whereas the 2.0 automatic will sit in traffic all day... He was
going to put this in his, but decided to build a new one since that is an
original. I want to be like that at 86 lol
