in her previous life, suzi had suffered a windshield strike. the crack ran almost all the way across the window. it was generally above my line of sight(so i didn't care) and i assumed it would finish cracking.
the crack never got any worse, but when i installed this new seat i was looking right through it.
suzi has a new windshield.
shoulda done this six years ago.

Broken windshields are an interesting thing. The window on my Raider was cracked when I purchased her, two lines running amok from side to side. Upon visiting wrecking yard row, a commercial CHP stopped me with the hand out gesture. Though the officer already had another driver in trouble for an illegal load, I was asked if my supervisor knew about the bad windshield...as if my Raider was a state vehicle. I later informed my supervisor, my collegemate friend/boss, as directed by the officer. Next evening the world changed when I had a different pane put in, wow!

suzi the psychic has had fuel problems again.
she has this hitachi 2bb "feedback" carburetor/computer arrangement, and when it screws up - well, let's say she don't run good.
i have taken this carb. apart many times, and it may be developing some problems from that, and there are some choke alignment issues i had never figured out.
i have been able to repair this, but there is a reliability issue.
and i have to smog her every 2 years.

i have put the weber back on.

That Weber isn't smog legal, right? So you have to swap the stocker back on for the test? Have you had any issues getting it to pass by changing back and forth between the two? How much work is it to swap them out, and what do you do with the random vacuum lines and stuff when the Weber is on there? Just curious...

How's everything? I hope all's well with you guys, Richard, and wish you the happiest of holidays! I need to make a drive back up there sometime and see some of my NORCAL friends...

good to hear from you, jon. best of the holidays to you and the family. and i see mentions about a birthday? great- keep 'em coming.
re:weber
not smog legal, so i will probably have to refit the stock again in a few months. i have been able to incorporate a few of the devices the computer looks at, and the check engine light functions normally, and the egr seems to work(i modified my header to pass exhaust to it).
i'm not sure where to tap vacuum for the evap. canister, but if i get it figured, and it can run clean enough, and the smog tech doesn't look close.........
i tried a couple of years ago, but i hadn't figured the check engine light thing out yet. we'll see.
i can't rely on that stock thing. it has quit on me a few times now, and it is difficult to move when only the idle circuit works.
i'm looking for a "new" stock carburetor. they are very much like samurai carbs. but different. apparently only this model of 1989 sidekick used it, and there weren't that many made.

If you can give me some specifics on the carb you need, I'll keep my eyes peeled for one. Thanks for the kind thoughts, and hopefully we can meet up again in the not-so-distant future. Hello to the lady of the house for me...

jon- good on your end? work is still getting in my way.
i have located and recieved a replacement carburetor.
many thanks to brent at trail tough(oregon- excellent source for suzi parts).
there can't be too many of these available any more.
used and previously worked on, but mabe between the two of 'em i can make something that works......

i've decided to monkey around with a air/fuel ratio guage.
i bought a glowshift unit, but it doesn't seem compatible with suzi's oxegen sensor.
something about a narrow band sensor, so i bought a sensor kit.
$
i will pull the header off of her for modifications.
i wonder if i should try something other than bar-b-que paint on the header-- i'ts pretty rusty.
perhaps i should have looked into this more. i probably should have started with a wide band guage...
naww- the existing sensor is only looking at one cylinder. i'm putting it in the header collector so it sees it all...

i pulled suzi's header to install a sensor bung in the collector.
bought a cool bit that made the hole easy.
[Linked Image]
then i sparked the bung on.
[Linked Image]
naturally, the threads on the supplied plug stayed in the bung, but i think it may clean out with a spark plug chaser after i go buy one.........
i'm optomistic and used some header paint to hide any other defects.
[Linked Image]
i picked up a gasket(felpro "new and improved") and some studs, nuts and bolts for the refit.
i'll drink a beer and watch the paint dry.

here's a bad pic of the plug. i must have overheated the bung/plug.
[Linked Image]
i had to put this header somewhere 'till i get the chaser, so i hung it on the head.
i had to pick a color. i wonder how long this will last.
i think it'll look cool.

used an 18mm sparkplug tap. didn't totally blow it(there's still time).
