      The DPR ("gray box") controls fine-fueling. The basic metering is completely mechanical.

      Where/how did you test fuel pressure?

      You can use the horn relay in place of the fuel pump relay to...

      Take it apart. IIRC, you'll be able to fit regular hose on and use regular clamps.

      There'll only be two screws holding the actual cluster on. I've never been able to tilt and reach the speedo cable, but if you're able to, that would be great. Otherwise, you'll get good at lying on...

      I've regretted kyb gr2s since the day they went on. Should have splurged for billies the first time around. Konis seem recommended as well

      5 years later, no more hard starts when cold. When I got this Fox, it had the CTS shunted, so obviously cold starting was tough. First thing I did was replace the CTS and all the ignition components....

      An ammeter simply runs inline with whatever circuit, measuring current. If you still have it connected, but now turn the meter off, it will not be a closed circuit anymore (ie no power to the dpr and...

      Vacuum/intake leaks? Check the stickies in the CIS section for how to tune the fueling. You'll need at least a long 3mm allen. Does it run on starter fluid? If so, this is bad advice but I'd try...

      What's the condition of your fuel pump relay? I know Digifant controls the rev limit, but maybe the relay still cuts out if there's no spark after a certain amount of time? If so, you could try...

      Vacuum advance is more for emissions than anything. If your cts is not allowing a warm condition, it will not go into closed loop and the o2 sensor will not come into play.

      No you cannot simply unplug the cts. You must also shunt the plug in order to simulate a warm condition. Otherwise it will be pig rich. No sensors for timing. It's a simple centrifugal mechanical...

      There's no fancy electronics here. The temp gauge simply measures coolant temperature. If it acts up when the gauge reads low, then sure enough, your temperature is low. A stuck open tstat could keep...

      There's not many sensors that control the mixture-- really only the coolant temp sensor when cold, and the o2 sensor when warm. It's possible that the CTS isn't dropping enough in resistance when...
