roll back to basics with XF carbie

Well after failing to find and fix the problems with the EFI on the XF, I've picked up a carbie and inlet manifold to whack on it.

Since this is a paddock basher, I'm not all too worried about the legalities of what I want to do to it, which is basically rid it of its pollution gear and have it run like an engine of old. There seems to be alot of vacuum lines that I'm sure some of which arn't needed.

What can I do to it that will simplify its operaton?

Watchout with the fuel pressure the efi delivers over a carb engine! efi is 250kPa while carby 56kPa.

Re: back to basics with XF carbie

I cant remeber if the carbie and a flow back to the tank, you may have to invent something to overcome the fuel pressure increase.

I had nearly all the vaccum hoses blocked on my XF, had something inside the tubes, so they looked connected but did nothing.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: back to basics with XF carbie

Geez, that would have to be a record I reckon. 1 year for the first reply to a thread... hahaha

I ended up refitting the EFI stuff and getting it working again. Havn't had enough spare time in the last 12 months to drive it, but plan to over the christmas break.
