    Cracked Fuel Injector Plastic

    I posted this in my turbo build thread, but figured it was worthy of its own post. I sent my injectors out for cleaning to InjectorRx. Spray patterns were good after cleaning, but the #6 injector has a cracked plastic housing. It’s cracked on both sides. FWIW, the injector report did not...

    Broken Distributor Connector

    Any ideas on a way to secure a distributor connector with a broken tab? I tried a zip tie but the orientation of the wires doesn't allow the zip to compress properly. It will eventually need to be replaced as the orange wire is chaffed, but I'm hoping for an interim fix. Anyone have a part...
