Yes, a full tank was used on the weekend. Which doesn’t mean anything as they chew the juice.
A short Night cruse with all the family. A couple of trips to Bunnings Hardware (just to set off some car alarms)
The Bridge Port is OK to drive I thought it might be painful. Can’t wait for another drive hoping there might be a car club run soon (I will have to join)
Still have a little bit of fumes, changed the breather setup made it a bit better. I think fuel injection and a new tank with internal pump might get rid of the smell. I know it just an old car and that’s how it goes but it will give me something to do. Air conditioning might be on the cards as well. :oops:
Lots of looks on the road while driving and a lot of people asking is it for sale

Thanks for the pump link that looks good.

I have been driving around my local area getting lots of looks :shock: . Took it out in the pissing rain to see if there are any leaks and to see how good the wipers work. No leaks, the heat/fan just keeps the screen clear. Actually enjoying driving the Bridge port on the street.
Still have a fuel smell can’t find the source so I guess I will have to speed up the injection set up and make a tank with built in pump. The PAC one looks OK but I just can’t bring me self to buy one from them.

Out and about

The standard air filter covers most of it.

Car looks absolutely sensational! The angel blue really suits the sedan shape. 8)

Injection setup looks good and will be great under an original air filter. I know what you mean about fuel smells.....my t shirt stinks of fuel after a decent outing in mine....I trialled a full sealed breather setup on mine and it made squat difference, so I put it back the way it was as it looks much tidier.

Thanks. I drive it least once a week still at the moment. My boys love it. Even if it is the Hardware.
Hope to start putting the injection on soon, I have a new tank with inbuilt pumps, new Teflon lines and fittings. Computer and wiring set out but not wired. Manifold need to be finished off with some match porting and vacuum lines.
Biggest problem is I like to dive it on the weekends, so no time to change it over.

Had a good cruise to Dave's and hope to get out on a club cruise soon.

Yes fuel smell is a Rotary thing but I really want to try to get the car the best I can for driving. The sound deadening and boom mat has made it good inside, no real droning noise. My 3 year old fell asleep the other day.
