  1. Everything I've touched this weekend has broken: this afternoon the seven's starter motor died (again). A similar failure occurred about 3-4years ago (motor spins but pinion doesn't engage flywheel). It's the stock/standard duralast ford focus starter for my 2L duratec. I do have a Odyssey battery. I'v been lead to believe this is a solenoid problem, does this sound correct? Is this just bad luck or is there something I should check/fix that could be causing this to prematurely fail? thanks.
  2. I have haltech as that was original setup I got. My unit is now obsolete but I’ve had good experiences with support (Oz office remotely logged into my car to help diagnose a failing ignition module). I think many cat’s have SBD systems. Some folks have good experiences with Typhoon? ECU last time I discussed with them. I’d give some/nominal consideration to tuning ability/interface since we are often engineer-types: (Can you find someone to tune a turboencabulator & can you further modify the settings)? My tuner does what he can and has advised: do this/that to further f
  3. have you checked to see if BirkinDirect has any on hand? i think i got one with my chassis that's in my attic now.
  4. Many thanks to Mike & Tom (as well as everyone who came to make it an amazing sevens gathering) just arriving home now I’ll post this end of the weekend shot of the die hards - Not pictured is the groundhog sunbathing in the driving line at turn 2. Luckily for the little critter we both managed to avoid it.
  5. 1) Have you tried one of those viscous aluminum powder radiator leak stop solutions? 2) have you replaced your O2 sensor? Last time I got re-tuned we discovered my sensor was giving intermittently erratic readings
  6. Tom what is the COVID - dining room situation regarding lunch/breakfast?
  7. It would seem to either be spark/fuel to #4. any way you can swap all (coil/injector/wire) for #4 with another cylinder and see if that one stops working to narrow it down? good luck... seems its the last 1% of this herculean adventure screwing it all up.
  8. Jay - I have a menagerie of spares. call me tomorrow p.
  9. I too have broken that seal in the name of 11th hour Se7en repairs
  10. Jay - so sorry to hear this. I’m off duty until Sunday - phone me if I can be of any assistance p.
  11. Can you rotate the steering rack to change the steering column angle?
  12. I’ve camped in the field there on more than one occasion. Weather will be good this time of year. Afterwards you can go over to cape may for a day or two.
