Miss this place, many a night and day I spent here helping my FSJ run better and just goofing off....

Glad to see some old pals...

Maybe I will make the Ouray 10 year and donate my 2002 trophy!

Yes, az, I agree in that if the balancer is out, the vibrations will not abate as the rpm's go up.

this unit has no clutch and a flex fan. I wonder if the darn fan can be causing it? Hmmmm?

Harmonic Balancer?

My 360 has a fairly harsh vibration (parked, not running...) that becomes real noticeable at about 1200 RPM's and seems to abate as RPM's climb.

I do not see anything out of wack with the balancer,...

Selling Louise. Very Sad.

It is with a heavy heart that I must sell Louise, my beloved 84 GW famous here for having the saggiest springs at Ouray I.

Basically, like many I expect, I have to let her go to someone who can...

Thanks for the idea, that must be it. I was a little worried as I could not remember all the weird things that could cause that, but as it was sudden, and really nothing else is up, I will check that.

Tailpipe diameter?

I am getting a new cat to put on myself. I am thinking 2.25 x 2.25 stock, correct?


I can buy a cat for about 50 bux and put it on myself, I imagine. Saving about 150.00 from the shop charges.

I dig this, and this is a good way to really "see" the condition of the wires, correct? A bad wire will look different, weak. A fouled plug the same?

Chasing down a miss. Want to avoid a shock

Ok, pull each plug, while running, to check for a possible miss.

Techniques? I have done this, and received a big shock. Now, due to my recent heart trouble, I am hesitant to risk it.

For a cat-back on my 84 GW? The cat is long gone, the muff is as well, and the pipes seem to be real bad, although exhaust does come out of the tail pipe!
