FWF Hoses; More Probe Installation
If you've read yesterday's entry, you'll see where I wanted to get most of the hoses and stuff worked out so that I'll know where *NOT* to put sensor wires. Superior gave me fuel hoses but they were also included in the FWF kit. I don't think the hoses from the kit are going to work for me. Here's the hose that runs from the FI servo to the flow divider on top of the engine. I personally think it's a little loose, but what do I know? I really need to get some friends over that have done this before to see what they think. I know that I want to firesleeve everything possible in here.
Heres the mechanical fuel pump. The hose at the bottom is going to the FI servo inlet, while the braided hose at the top is going to the fuel pressure transducer.
Here you see the other end of the fuel hose going into the FI servo. This is just finger tight for now and will have to get removed because I need to mount the cable bracket between the servo and the sump (it's on order and should arrive soon).
Here's the oil temp probe that threads into the oil filter adapter.
Just for kicks I crimped a crappy #8 ring terminal on the wire (it'll need to get trimmed seriously anyway) and put the terminal on the probe. Hmm...EMS is showing 81 degrees.
Yep...that looks about right according to my wall clock.
Ok, back to the hoses...the plug on the right is where you're supposed to put the restrictor fitting for the oil pressure transducer line. Well...the fitting is 45 degree deal and there's no way it's going to go on there because it will interfere with the mount as it gets rotated in. My understanding is that you can use either plug there for oil pressure. I need to check with Van's to see if they have a restrictor fitting that is straight.
Here's the digram. Yep...I missed the missive. No big deal. Worst case scenario is pulling the engine, but I don't seriously think that's necessary.
