Right now my SU carbs are still running fine but I may just have to do one of the above upgrades down the road.


Dealing with the choke is annoying in the mornings, especially as the temps start to drop. EFI is a great solution.

Thanks, I?m definitely leaning that way. I like the FiTech or the Sniper EFI. Both are decent investments but seam to pay off in the end.

Guys - sorry to revive an older thread. A couple questions as I go through this on my 91 110.

- Having some trouble with the PCV; how did you plumb it when you did this?
- Throttle cable; mine is RHD and seems like I need a longer cable?
- The original heater hose under the manifold - does this change, seems like I can't get it to fit?

Any help would be appreciated - definitely a newbie here.

Best,
Ben

Ben,

Off the top of my head I can tell you that I was able to reuse my throttle cable. Also, the original heater hoses were tossed, and I ran all new hoses from the water pump/manifold in front, around the side of the engine across the top of the curbside valve cover instead of routing one under the manifold.

I also reused the original crankcase breather. Only modification was that I tossed that charcoal filter box thing, and just ran a straight hose from the breather all the way back to the rear of the truck so exhaust gases didn't come in the cab. If your truck has antique tags, and/or isn't required to pass emissions, then go ahead and do the same thing if you want.

Thanks Kent - I think we have figured the breather issue out. Will probably do something similar to what you described above.

I still cannot get the stock throttle cable to work - ordered a 72in Lokar cable in hopes that it will be long enough, and be able to attach to the pedal...Will post detailed pictures in the thread as a follow up for the group
