    I bought one when I was trouble shooting the Lexcen, handy bit of gear to have in the tool box!

    Yea I thought the same, I reckon one of those pieces of kit I won’t use often, but when you do its invaluable…

    Beats guessing  :yes:

    And with how cheap special tools are these days why wouldn’t you purchase!

    Bought an air chisel set the other day in Bunnings for $14…

    I remember borrowing one as a kid as I couldn’t afford the $300.

    That’s so true isn’t it.  Tools are ridiculously cheap.  That noid set was $30.  “he who dies with the most tools wins” ha ha

    That’s funny Gary as on Friday at work I was thinking how much gear I have between the building and mechanic stuff it’s a bucket load and more to come, who doesn’t like a new tool

    Managed to get the pins for the under dash, as they are still available through GM.  Funny how some things are, others are long gone.  Also found a place called Gen 2 Automotive 10 mins from me.  Its run by a pair of second gen enthusiasts Danni and Ben.  They run its as a part time business selling and wrecking them to fund their own “obsession”.  Really nice people, and they had a mint dash facia.  So that’s pretty much that for now until the bonnet arrives.  Happy days.

    Also got the engine all adjusted up, idles beautifully, can get it down well below 800rpm.  Thought I would also fit the trumpet screens as that’s an accident waiting to happen.

    Got onto a company in the UK called ITG Air Filtration, EFI Hardware (thanks to IJ) put me onto them.  They look like having a nice filter set up specifically for the Jenvey, so waiting to hear back from them on that.

    Yea I have Cav, its all good having a low idle when its warm but when its cold bit of a pita keeping it running.  I was just paying around to see how low it would go.

    Just got sent the images by Troy the Street Machine photographer for the engine feature.  Super happy with how they turned out.

    Nice job 👌 looks great.

    I find an infrared thermometer handy for diagnosing misfiring cylinders as well, the exhaust primary temp will be much cooler on the dead or misfiring cylinders.

    Thanks for that, yea I have one, it’s actually good for a broad idea of how well the ITB’s are synced too.   I didn’t think of using it for a misfiring cylinder though!  I have a “tune equip” box, it’s starting to get rather full!
