  1. I have a complete set of Limey's reproductions that I won't use. Instead, I used the heims chad has been selling with a .2215" spacer on each side. You can get stainless tubing that is 18mm OD and 14 mm ID and simply slice .2215" off for one spacer, or as many as you need. I parted mine with the lathe. I will sell Limey's joints to anyone that might want them as they will only collect dust here in my shop.
  2. Thanks for the info guys. Looking into this a bit suggests you guys are right about a different alternator mount. The length of the pipe/tube suggests it is a Yanmar tupe of alternator mount. I was considering removing it to mount a better alternator but I think it is going to fit without doing so. Thanks guys, you are the best!
  3. When I removed the alternator in my 87 injected CT, I found this piece of heavy wall tubing (pipe) that is welded to the frame. Nothing was attached to it and it appears to be factory installed. Does anyone else have this in their car or does anyone know what it's purpose in life is supposed to be??? It's underneath the alternator and can be seen from underneath the car or with a mirror in the engine compartment.
  4. Looks like a MSD Blaster SS coil from what I can see. I don't have any info close by as to mounting positions for this coil, but it does appear to be on it's side in the pics. Might not be an issue with this coil, you would need to verify that with MSD techs. I don't know how this coil is cooled, so more questions for MSD. Bypassing all that, do you have any spark output while cranking?
  5. , I have the MSD coil. My fuse box, relays etc were all rebuilt to higher than factory standards by George as well. Maybe it does have something to do with the MSD? Allen, I don't know which MSD coil you are using or how you have it mounted. If it is a standard round old school type of coil it needs to be mounted vertically, NOT horizontally unless it is a MSD #8222 epoxy filled coil. The other coils are oil filled for cooling the windings and will expose some of the windings to air if mounted on their side resulting in overheating and intermittent failures until it just dies a
  6. Dean, Never did I say your's were not of good quality. When asked about them, I did convey that they were NOT heim joints at all, rather they were fixed bushings. The bushings appeared to be of quite good quality, but that does NOT make them the same as an actual heim joint. That is why I asked to return them to you. As an aside, I was also a bit concerned that the arms themselves were made from a solid rod rather than tubing. This incrases the components weight, and a solid rod bends easier than a tubular one. Though they would work, they were NOT what I was seeking. Sorry if t
  7. I have to migrate towards supporting Allen's argument here. I seem to have gotten myself into somewhat of a similiar argument to this on a Ferrari site. Fuel injection and carburetion can never be compared directly unless the rest of the engines parameters are the same. The Countach FI uses milder cams and some claim lower compression ratios were also used. I have not researched the compression issue at this time, nor seen any documentation supporting that. However, both factors would contribute to lower HP and torque output. FI (420 HP) versuses carbed (455 or 465 HP) stated horspower ra
  8. My original payment was by Paypal. Sent it when all this still in the talking and planning stages. Then Kurt refunded my payment because it was taking so long to get the parts produced and shipped to him. Then he asked for a payment once again by PayPal when the parts were available. Up to this point in time, everything was above board. I do not recollect any "gifting" on PayPal with this transaction for the final payment transfer. If Kurt was on LPower on the 23, did he post or log into any threads or discussions??
  9. Has anyone heard anything from Kurt?? Earlycat, has Kurt got back to you since you sent your heim joints back to him?? Damned, how I hate to be taken advantage of. One tries to trust another, and guess what happens. You are screwed over and then can never make contact with the screwee again. Kurt, I hope you can justify in your own mind the damage which you have caused all the people whom have placed their trust in you. It is just so sad that one whom professes to be a fellow enthusist finds solace whithin himself to reap profits from others for a product that he markets that is
  10. Missed your post. Yes, he sent out new heims when one ordered his "kit". These new ones are the ones that are not holding up. His solution is to send back the "new" unused heims and re-press them in a factory supplied jig, and then send them back to you once again. Hope that makes a little more sense to you.
  11. Kurt last posted here on April 19th, has anyone heard from him since that time?? His words .... "This will probably take upto 4 weeks, but if after 4 weeks give or take i don't have an answer yet, i will report this to you guys" Anybody see the report, or did I just miss it? How long is "too long" to keep screwing with this issue?? How does everybody else feel about this situation? Any suggestions on how to proceed from here?
  12. Allan, Could we kind of ignore Kurt's (Limey) lack of sponsorship until the members here whom have already invested their dollars with him get their money back, or have a slim chance in the realm of hell to do so?? It is to the benefit of many members here to allow Kurt to have a venue as to how he is going to rectify his promises to us all. Then again, is he actually going to fulfill his promises if this is done? I just pray he will be as honest as he say's he is!!! Perhaps next year he will be a sponser. By rhe way, I do have a bridge for sale over in London!!!
  13. This is just a "Where the hell is Kurt" posting. Anybody heard from him, or anything about his magical heim joint fix? Anybody else getting as upset as I am about the absolute lack of resolution to the product's deficiencies (spelling?)? Who else just wants their money back for the defective heim joints Kurt supplied? This whole ordeal seems to be getting to be a bit ridiculous!! I would now like to ask a question. Kurt told me he sold somewhere around 50 sets of these reproduced heim joints to George Evans (I still have a copy of that email). Is Mr. Evans comfortable with usin
  14. I use the Jag distributor cap on my 87 FI Countach. Somewhere in my records I have the part number for a NAPA jaguar cap, but the rotor has no cross. It seems the rotor is quite unique and built out of unobtanium. I'll see if I can find my purchase orders for the cap.
