    Poorly running 89 2.9

    That's a weird system. Almost have to re teach it. But alright I did monkey with that screw a tad today. I backed it off like 1/2 turn. Maybe it needs more? Idk I never messed with it before that. So as far as I knew that screw hadn't be turned in 30 years till. I gave it a squeak today. But...

    That line your talking about that's looped. Its a hard plastic line with rubber ends. I think that's my map sensor. I seen other videos where the first gen 2.9s had the map as a little sensor bolted to a stamped sheet metal bracket. I don't have that it goes straight into the firewall. The one...

    Also that little pcv valve deal on the pass side valve cover. Its got 2 vac ports one runs to the throttle body area where does the second one go? It was just open so I stuffed a hose with a screw over it to stop any vac leak.

    Alright ill post up another video. Just got it all back togther with the new injectors and tps i wired a new plug for the tps too. Its got new vavle cover gaskets as well. Not that it makes a difference right now anyway. But I'm not sure if I have the rotation of the tps right when I put it...

    that's odd. because it gets so bad it will hold the throttle open at like 3k rpm. I was hoping that the new tps sensor would solve that part

    Poorly running 89 2.9

    alright. so I bought a set of injectors, TPS sensor, set of valve cover gaskets, and a set of intake manifold gaskets as well. I haven't gotten to make the little fogger pump I found a video of up there do to not wanting to go into Walmart while a virus is afoot. so look over this quick video...

    I ordered some injectors from summit. And some rims and tires too. Gonna head over there in the morning and pick it all up. Change it out over the next few days.

    Poorly running 89 2.9

    Well I just filled it up too....dang it. I mean I can just pull em out and let them soak in some cleaner I guess over night. Or I'll price them at summit. And grab em I bet autozone wants an arm and a leg. I gotta get rims and tires for the thing anyway
