Progress on the build today. Figured out why it only revs to 2,000 RPM: the connectors to the electronic ignition were reversed! #2 cylinder is not firing right at low idle, causing the cat to heat up!
You think the catalytic converter is a little hot!? #nofilter #bestdamn18rgra43celicaintown #ra43 #18rg
So you want to know why an #18rg only revs to 2K and behaves like the timing is off? Two insignificant connectors from the electronic ignition were reversed! Now on to get those carbs dialed in!! #bestdamn18rgra43celicaintown #ra40 #ra43
Any jackass can put a prancing horse on their #snapon toolbox, but not too many people have the embossed #ferrari script from the titanium exhaust off a #f355, in this case a #355challenge. This was cut from Cary’s racecar around the time I bought this box from him. There is a couple other cool stickers on this thing, and the data plate off my green Buick, if any Colonial Beach kids remember that car! #oxnard
Holy cow, a cleaned storage locker! Also, let’s not forget the #nardiwheel and that big 125 MPH speedo (that was only on ‘78 #ra40 Celicas, all the others got the 85 MPH speedo). Cary Eisenlohr should recognize that #snapon I bought it from him ten years ago! #bestdamn18rgra43celicaintown #celica #oxnard #classiccelica #kyusha
Took some time this morning to organize the storage locker, and my trusty #snapon toolbox. Cary Eisenlohr should recognize this thing, I bought it from him ten years ago (it’s not that red, that’s just the cool Instagram filters). There is only a handful of tools here that aren’t Snap-On or #craftsman- and everything here tells a story- there is four generations of tools spanning close to eighty years in here! #oxnard #oldschoolusdmhunter #followyourpassion #builtnotbought
