Moosehead!!!!

I just installed some spherical bearings from Moosehead and these things are great. I was using urethane UCABs and they were trashed (25k miles) so the immediate improvement was obvious. After putting a few miles on them, they have a firm feel without the metal on metal harshness I feared. They feel...

Re: My Custom Stainless Exhaust System.

I just redid the exhaust on my M635. I ran two inch pipes from the headers to a Billy Boat exhaust can. It sounded great except at idle where it was too loud. I tried an X pipe as close to the headers as I could get and now its perfect. At idle it is much quieter and the sound in the cabin while dri...

Re: Cleaned engine. No spark now!

Check around the spark plugs. Water always seems to get under those rubber boots and settles down by the spark plugs. I use a piece of tubing hooked up to my air compressor to blow the water out.

impedance

You are correct that your injectors are high impedance. I think the switch over happened some time in 1985. My car is a January 85 build and it uses low impedance. Good idea to rebuild the current set and keep as a backup.

ITB Sync

There is a really smart guy over on mye28.com named Dean who built a Manometer for synchronizing individual throttle bodies. I used it yesterday on my M635 and it works better than I could have imagined. Here is my engine before sync: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x91Dia4SblA&feature=em-upload_own...

HondaPartsNetwork.com had them for $4.01 apiece. They are very high quality, much heavier than 1157s from the auto parts store.

Honda bulbs

I just installed some of these Honda bulbs in my M635. I put them in the brake lights, rear fog lights, and blinkers. They are noticeably brighter than the 1157 bulbs they replaced. Also, I checked them after an hour and they do not get hot. This is a terrific upgrade, highly recommended!

Anything with a high zinc content. I use Brad Penn but the other brands mentioned are also high in zinc. Any of them will be fine. However, if your cars are running good and not burning any oil, I would stick with what you have been using.

Conversion

Mojocoggo is right. There is a lubricant I bought on eBay that is specifically made for this type of conversion. I used when I replaced my condenser years ago and have not had any problems with it. Fill it up with the oil and r134 and you will be fine.
