Since you have the tb on your manifold try hooking up your existing cable to the top attachment point.
The throttle component is the same as my Quick Fuel carb, so I'm in luck.

Wiring is almost done. I should have the Command Center hooked up tomorrow.

I'll start it up this weekend!

Command Center is in and I drilled the hole in my header for the oxygen sensor.

Installed all of the fuel hoses/filters.

I just have to hook up the blue wire labelled 'tach' and I'm ready to prime/start the system.

Wish me luck!!! Should be good to go tomorrow!

That's great Les! A friend is looking at using the RobbMc sump pump with either a FiTech or Sniper tbi unit as his tank and pump are in excellent condition. How much gas does the FCC hold and how mch did they recommend that you put in it before installation? Are you having the FiTech control timing?

Hey Greg, the Command Center holds about 1 Litre. They recommend priming for 10 seconds and shut it down for 30 secs, repeat once and it's good to go.

I'm not having the FiTech control timing.

It started, but then died. My battery was low on juice, so I'm charging it now.

Hopefully that's the only issue.

One issue I had with the Command center was I had to remove the low pressure needle and seat. It had a small brass burr keeping it from operating properly. Easy fix but just thought I would mention it as something to check prior to installation.
Other than that all was good!!!

I need to change my spark plugs because the carburetor was running sooooo rich and they are wet and blacker than black!

I should be good to go after I swap them out.

Thanks for the tip Sly!

Greg, we have to go cruising this Summer.

Looking fwd to it Les! Your old wheels and tires miss you.

Did you change the oil before the install? How is it now - any gas in it?

I have to sell a few synths and maybe a bass or 2 to raise US $ before I order f.i. and/or a/c. Will be in Vegas for a bit this summer as the boys are doing a 2 week residency at Caesars then likely head over to Cali to see fam and freinds.

I'm just waiting for the plugs I ordered. They should be here on Monday. I'm changing the oil tomorrow at the AGVI Garage.
