Got to remember to bring pit crew and back up vehicle on these outback travels. I believe this qualifies as “Too much fun” ?John JonesModeratorFebruary 25, 2021 at 7:57 amPost count: 8200

Daily has had an erratic idle for quite some time now. Figured it was the cracked intake boots.
Inside of boot was still good???
The intake manifold ends are epoxied in place.
Pass side had let loose.
Franz mentioned there may be a better intake in the trailer. CHROME!!! And it has heat risers!
Had to wiggle the fan shroud up to get the new intake in place.
Riley tore down and cleaned the carb up, removed all the PITA bolts, and helped out a ton! Thanks Bud!!

Pat, I’ve got the same Empi intake on 2 of my cars. Knock on wood , I haven’t had an issue yet. Are you gonna fab something up for the throttle linkage to work with the new intake?John JonesModeratorMay 2, 2021 at 12:39 pmPost count: 8200

I run a CB Per. base plate with the mount for their sheath cable. No mobs required to the intake.
Followed Franz’s advice and opened the squirters up to .060 from .050 during the cab rebuild. Much smoother acceleration.
All back together. The new intake ends are flared down so they sleeve into the end casting. That along with the heat riser make it much sturdier .
We will build it if it comes.DaKineParticipantMay 3, 2021 at 2:23 pmPost count: 34
Wow! I didn’t know that throttle sheath kit existed! Thx for the link. That will get rid of all my linkage slop. 👍Pat KModeratorSeptember 28, 2021 at 12:31 pmPost count: 2191
Worked on the daily over the weekend. Pulled the 1/2 head to fix leaky pushrod tubes, and the trans to fix the torn boots I keep getting.
Cleaned everything while it was apart.
Boots keep pinching and tearing on the frame horns because my shits LIFTED.
Notched the frame horns for a bit more room.
Spring plate stops were bent inward at the lower rear, because LIFTED!!! Added a Sletten style class11 braces. They should stay out now!
Spray bomb paint to seal it up.
We will build it if it comes.
