Back On The Road

The new steering pump and rebuilt rack are working well. Surprisingly, the new pump and new rack servo add up to more power assist. I think the steering is a little light for my taste, but compared to a non-assisted setup, I'll take it any day.

The new Wilwood brakes work as expected. I still have a slight rub on the fenders when turning sharp while going over a bump. Next step is to roll the fenders but that is low on the list.

Over Christmas, I plan to take a few days off work and install the new top.

The next large purchase will be a set of new 30lb injectors and fuel rail along with a calibrated MAF sensor. The engine is still using the original injectors from 1995. I think I have a sticky injector because randomly I will smell raw gas as I drive down the road but I have not been able to find any leak in the fuel supply lines. If it was the tank vent, I think I'd smell gas every time I turn the car and slosh the fuel around. I am upgrading from the stock 19lb injectors because I want to replace my stock 5.0 long block with a Ford Racing long block (347?) and so I'll need the extra head room on the injectors. It will take a while to save up for that though.
