      original mount ...saw my friend broke 1 of these ...so decided to look a stronger 1 if not make it stronger .....planned to use the 1 in the upper left ...it comes off a automatic transmission ...need to c if it can work ....



      showing the weakness ....




      being boxed ...it was much stronger .....& only 1 hole was out of alignment ...just had to slot it .....

      the little hole to the right of the long 1



      ground off the weld that holds the nut on the inside ....



      measured the diameter of the original hole ...center punched the space besidre the hole & started boring with a small bit 1st then went to a bigger 1 as i progressed



      looks better ,stronger ...now i know i can go faster ....lol 4got to take pic of the other 1 mounted ..but it wasn,nt stronger ....

      I'm not sure about the hubs but I think it's pretty F'n cool that the power of the internet and globalization has enabled islanders like you to share your automotive creations. I'm building a megasquirted 16V but I think I might beat you.

      I now know that i need the corrado vr6 hubs ...so i am gonna get them .....FYI ...no "good" machine shop here in JA.....in the mean time i decided i needed a fuel pressure tester .....but cannot afford the 100$US for it ...so i decided to make 1 ....


      here is the gauge off a old air compressor .....


      mated to a "T" fitting ....


      braided hose to be attached


      check (schrader) valve to make tha adapter .......


      this will be trans formend in2 to parts ....


      parts to make 1 of the adapters


      parts to make an adapter


      the union crimped to the hose that goes to the gauge


      part for adapter taken


      the other end of the hose that goes to the adaptor .....


      adapter


      the adapter that goes in the fuel line


      the bleed valve


      gauge onto hose



      schrader attachment ....


      fuel line adapter assembled ...schrader valve to prevent fuel spillage ....


      schrader valve


      adapter attached to gauge assembly


      bleed valve

      another vu


      fitting it in2 a old case


      the case ...


      the full assembly cost $3000JA $30US .....& it works more adapters to come


      my inspiration
