Well got a couple of hours free to set up the accelerator pedal and cable today. Bit of buggering around but got there in the end. Still need to clean up the bracket and add a mount for the cable but it all works.

That a Lokar pedal mate ? I am playing around with my throttle pedal at the moment , I would like to keep the stock pedal if possible but with the EFI it needs about 50mm of travel.

No, just a cheap one from one of the local rod shop suppliers. Ebay have them with the cable as well

I purchased them from here https://www.partsforhotrods.com.au/ but I know you can get the accelerometer and cable on eBay.

Cheers, Simon

Chipping away, pipes made up to go from the under dash brake master cylinder to the upper fill point that is mounted where the speaker would normally reside. Also in the process of installing the fuel cap and filler pipe to the fuel tank.

Nice work Taz,

Most people dont realise that high pressure fuel / return is not allowed in the boot space and does not comply with the Engineering process.

I have seen a lot of pumps in the boot area and shudder to think what the outcome would be if a hose come off.

Anyway your progress is coming along nicely.

Greg
