are your motor mounts in good shape/ or already replaced?

also would anyone have a picture showing what the prechamber balls look like? i am not visualizing what is being tlaked about.

Yea, all new motor mounts, filters, rubber lines. Even repalced the hard suction and return lines. There's nothing left I can think of for the shake. The prechambers have a ball suspended over a hole. Thats the chunk im missing in 2 prechambers. As a side note, there is a tool I just bought for 14 dollars that I have already threded into the PC. All I have to do is yank it out when the kids go to bed. If it works, Ill post the name of the tool and such in case anyone else wants the 14 dollar, no welding required method.

sounds good.

again, i feel when you get the prechamber sorted you will have a good car. some blowby wont hurt anything. the compression numbers look pretty good.

on thing i am wondering is what caused the balls to break. (i am assuming your wife is not a ball breaker). heh heh.

seriously why?

never heard of it before.

I wish I knew what caused the prechambers to be molested like that. I got that car 3 weeks ago and the wretched shake was part of the reason it was only 1k. Got it from the original owner with all the paperwork. Even the took kit is still sealed in the MB plastic bag. Spare tire has never seen daylight. However, I think that Bubba the local mechanic got hold if it at some point due to the missing cigar hose and 1 off looking injector that didnt fcome on the car originaly. Only thing I can think of is that buba busted the balls out not knowing they were supposed to be there? If they would have broekn off they should still be in there somewhere and they are not. I wish I knew!!

Maybe my wife is to blame for the problems I had with the smoker. Lord knows she fits the profile.....

I got the PC's out this am. I am baffled by what I see. I am going to start a new thread about fractured PC's and see if anyone has any ideas...as a side note, the tool worked great and was only 14 bucks!

It would be interesting to see your homemade tools if you can post pictures of them.

When you do your new nozzle you may want to clean your other nozzles. It takes time but with some magnification and small brass wires you can clean your injectors and make your car run stronger and more efficiently.
