      I'd consider parting with one. Problem is, I am going out of town for a week.
      I can check in when I'm back and if need be, we could work something out.

      Don't lose hope, or buy a reman.
      Just look for a used one.
      One other area I say is worth checking/fixing.
      the injector or rings upper and lower.

      they are integrated inside the meter.
      From what I read, they were pushing the envelope making them by using a laser to cut the slit. This was beyond cutting edge in the 80's as laser cutters were a...

      I'd make an offer but I don;t want to insult oyu.
      Question though. how did it perform?

      Wow
      Is that what we were talking about last night?

      They probably are, but in my experience, I had a dodgy cutout issue that turned out to be a hole in the pickup tube at the transfer pump. I made up a new one while I replaced the 26 year old pump...

      This weekend, I was going through one of my bins of parts and saw I had another CIS-E 1.8 Meter.
      It is untested but it is probably still be good and could likely test it on my 86.

      Nice setup and cool video.

      Looking good
      I'm getting a coupe on Monday.
