For the fuel cell in Tom’s RX7, we were concerned about being able to pick up fuel when cornering. The fuel pick-up is in one corner of the tank so any slosh will uncover it.
After some research, I found these Walbro fuel pucks designed for snowmobiles. They come in a few varieties: single connection double connection and a right angle connection. Some come with vent holes.
I have been experiencing some odd behavior when starting my Renix Cherokee lately. While the starter sounded like it was spinning fine, the engine would not fire up. Often it would fire just as I let go of the key.
I have been running an old Optima battery that I got back when ChumpCar was giving them away as part of their sponsorship, The battery read over twelve volts and the starter sounded fine. However, I noticed that the REM was shutting off and the voltage was dropping while trying to start.
Troubleshooting a no start condition on my 944 Race Car
After the race at Indy, the car has made a few short trips in and out of the trailer but that is it. In preparation for the next race, I pulled it into the shop. When I later went to move it onto the lift, it would not start.
I first swapped the DME relay. No start. I then replaced the DME with a jumper. No start.
They say if you don;t use something in year you should get rid of it. Well I don’t take that advice on tools. I can;t remember how many years its been since I last used this tool but today it was really handy to have.
