It looks so strange being the only clean new thing under the hood. This was from your first batch. I have been sitting on it forever waiting to install it. I finally did it when I was down at GSMTR a few weeks ago. Took me about 5 minutes to get the idle dialed in and I was testing it on the trails. Very happy with it. :beer:

I was going to post this in the "What have you done to your cruiser this week" thread but since it took more like a month....

Before:

After:

Dang bunch of searching for needed parts (much thanks to GA Architect/Offkilter) to put this back together more like original... even surprised myself going beyond my intelligence and ability level by creating my own metal fuel line.

Very nice. If that is the vac line for the dizzy attached to the fuel line you can just route it under the air cleaner straight down to the dizzy.

Copy that... it is the vac line - speaking of vac lines: I was on the edge of calling you because although truck was idling perfect, I had a heck of a time getting back up my steep driveway on test run... tightened up all the vacuum lines with clamps - problem solved!

Thanks...

@Trollhole

I'm not sure I've got my vac lines correct on the new carb on my FJ60. I'll send you some pictures later, but could you enlighten me on how it should be routed? I'm pretty new to this, so dumb it down for me.

Here's some info on my truck:
  • running headers
  • no HAC (obviously)
  • EVAP system gone (obviously)
  • I have one (untested) VCV coming in the mail - need for dizzy vent?
  • no VTV's
  • A/C idle up from OEM carb now on THC carb
I don't remember how my brake booster and A/C idle up are routed. I'll get pictures. The lower port is routed to the vacuum advance closest to the dizzy. The outer one is plugged.

Edit: Sending this as a PM just in case you miss it here.

On my 87 60 series. The day after I messed up my install by taking too many lines off you helped me talk it through and provided excellent customer service.

A very happy customer and the truck runs great with it.
