    To standardize, from the drivers seat right side is always right no matter where the steering wheel is or what side of the road you drive on. Likewise left is left from the drivers point of view. Worldwide standard. Done.
  4. Twas the Night Before Christmas.... 'Twas the night before Christmas and in the garage, There wasn't a trace of Chevy or Dodge. The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit, So I figured I'd mess with the Zero a bit. I popped the release and I lifted the hood, When a deep voice behind me said "looks pretty good." Well, as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick, And there, by the workbench, stood good ol Saint Nick! We stood there a bit, not too sure what to say, Then he said "don't suppose that you'd trade for my sleigh? I said "no way, Santa" and started to grin, "But if you've got the time we could go for a spin!" His round little mouth, all tied up like a bow, Turned into a smile and he said "hey! Let's go!!" So as not to disturb all the neighbors' retreat, We pushed the Zero quietly into the street, Then, taking our places to drift down the hill, I turned on the key and I let the clutch spill. The sound that erupted took him by surprise, But he liked it a lot, by the look in his eyes. With Goodyear's a' crying and side pipes aglow, We headed on out where the hot rodders go. And Santa's grin widened, approaching his ears, Then he yelled "can't recall when I've felt so alive!" So I backed off the gas and said "you wanna drive?" Ol Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys, When he walked past the headlights he shook at the knees! Then the engine exploded with side exhaust sound! Santa let out the clutch and the tires shook the ground! Power shift into second, again into third! I sat there just watching, at loss for a word, Then I heard him exclaim as we blasted from sight, "Merry Christmas to all, it's a heck of a night!!!"
  5. No worries, just curious? Health issues first and foremost. HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL! AND STAY SAFE
  6. Actually in that post I don't think the LP pump died. I think it was never powered via the loom, that was my problem anyway. I had always tested the system by direct powering the LP pump just ass-um-ing the GBS harness would work correctly. The swirl pot was full on my first trip out and I can tell you, you can go 7.5 miles on a swirl pot full of fuel till you end up on the side of the road for your first drive out. Scratching your head. High heat will cause the Facet LP pump to stop working. GBS reply is "dump cold water on it and hit it with something to get it going again." My untested and unproven theory is the diffuser reduces air flow and traps heat causing problems for the LP pump. Especially in our constant +30*C temperatures out here.

    LP fuel Pump

    Just connect to the + terminal on the hp pump. The lp pump is grounded in the loom at the rear of the loom.

    LP fuel Pump

    Miked5, I’m running a Haltech Ecu and had to run the LP pump via a wire to HP pump even though using GBS loom. Just use the wire in the loom and run it to the hp pump. Works fine.

    Good deal even on this side of the pond.
  10. Looks great. Really like the bonnet venting.

    Heat soak

    Is it a cranking problem or running problem with the heat? If cranking check the ground cable to/from the battery and you may want to add another ground strap to the starter. If it is a running issue more than likely it is heat soaking of the swirl pot and HP pump in the engine bay. Tin tops do not have this setup and it is why I am in the process of moving everything to below the boot. Pumps do not like heat and we have more of it, it seems here in California (even though I'm in northern California) than in the UK.
