hah! beat the fuel leak!

Seems like I got it on Saturday! Thanks to Dave for pointing out the cause, I totally missed it. The screw on addapter for the EL fuel rail can only be tightened by hand when it's in the engine bay, seems this wasn't enough. Moved the fuel rail around abit on Saturday and tightened it as best we could. Didn't start it then due to pissing petrol all over the engine loom, but firing it up last night showed no leaks and all of today's driving was fine too.

So people doing BBM conversions in the future - tighten the fuel hoses up before you put the manifold in. It'll save you a lot of effort.

Also got the XR rears in today all by myself, gotta get my hands on a set of spring compressors and I'll do the front. Feels HEAPS stiffer in the rear end, can't wait til the front matches it better.

Re: hah! beat the fuel leak!

It's about 3 fingers between the wheel and the guard, not as low as I'd like but it's better, plus I can get away with it for insurance. Sits slightly lower than the front, though the handling benefits are going to be huge I think.

Wait a minute, I never asked. Better do that tomorrow!

Re: hah! beat the fuel leak!

Good stuff Chief Your car is coming along very nicely. Oh, maybe you should buy a decent set of compressors, it might just save you a lot of hassle

My springs have made a massive improvement - I can boot it around corners a lot faster and she sticks like she's on rails
