Batch fire. For a couple reasons...
B) I'm running an ms2 which doesn't easily support v8 sequential
3) I donot have the equipment to be able to tune anything well enough to take advantage of sequential.
I only have 1 wideband o2 sensor and a butt dyno lol
Yeah, I invested in one of those butt dynos myself. It about a size 44 right now, but is expandable if the need were to arise!
bro. "just finished dinner" d
Thanks for the props..... I've been trying to following your lead ..
The fuel rail I picked up on eBay in a 36 length and cut and drilled and welded the fittings on it and capped the ends. I just drilled the injector holes 3/8 and then drilled and reamed the o-ring .590 diameter hole. I believe the fuel rail id is 5/8, way more than I needed but it was very reasonably priced and it was good quality and easy to work with.
The intake side I made steel bungs using 3/4 .125 wall dom tube. Then reamed them to the correct id for the injector o-rings. Then beveled them at the correct angle. Then located and drilled the intake where I wanted them. And welded up. So far so good. Ive pressure tested it and no leaks..
Mine are fully welded.My earlier question about who fabricated your fuel rails results from the need to have my own rails done. I'll probably go with the "store bought" tool to drill the injector holes (Ross Machine - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSNb9QKj568) but the question was what tool to use to make the o-ring bevels for the end fittings. What did you use - and what size? My line will be Dash-10 (5/8).
Some mockup pics finally lol. Need a few more coats of caddy blue on the intake yet but ran out of paint. Go figure. Eastwood no longer carries it I guess. Have to find something else and hope it matches the rest of the motor.
Still,need to make linkage and a wiring harness for it yet. And also need to,make some intake gaskets. Going to cut 2 sets of felpro material and sandwich the valley pan between them that way the valley pan will keep oil and such off the injectors.
This is the first one of my intakes I've seen anyone other than myself do anything with! Looking good! You seem to be talented enough to have built your own...Moved to Texas and and had a rough start but am ready to start building again. Built a single plane curved runner intake (High rise), mounted a turbo directly to carb inlet and made 2x4 draw thru intake for that...really tall but oughtta be fun in my 507 powered T bucket!
The connectors can be had by Tray maintenance. Don't now if they have a site. But I do know they have the connectors. Try and get them from the dealers. Good luck. This is a very good tool to crimp twin lock connectorshttps://www.ebay.com/itm/Buick-Wiring-Harness-Crimp-Connector-Wire-Terminals-Crimpers-Tool-nos-14-18AWG/301309236789Another update:
Got the valley pan and gaskets cut and bonded up. Installed intake and bolted down hopefully for the last time on this 500..
Throttle linkage took some figuring as I had to highly modify the original bellcrank system. This 500 has much less room head to firewall because of the opposite cylinder bank offset.
Next it's harness time. I've studied way too much on what plugs I need.. I'm using all GM sensors and such. I usually just go junkyarding and snip the plugs off what I need and solder them up for harness... Not this time. I wanted to do the harness without any breaks lol. Delphi metri-pack 150p is what most of them are. Very cheap new, but alot of variations to what they can be. Like once you figure out what plug you have, then you have to buy the right pins and seals for the gauge of wire your using. Also the crimping tool is needed. Good thing I only actually need like 5 plugs total.
Then finally I'll be moving onto the crank trigger and pickup. I have another 75 500 on a stand that I can use for mockup since there's no room in the car to work..
