    Re: Steering rack source

    No doubt Jason. My car has been down so many years that I don’t want to lay it up for another minute and this job looks like it could be a long time between removal, shipping off, return and...

    Re: Steering rack source

    Thanks Dave. I believe I have tightened up hoses in the past but didn’t seem to be the issue. I also did check on the heat shields and all is intact. I will
    take a closer look to see if it’s...

    Re: Steering rack source

    Thanks for all of that Dave. I gave Raul a search but didn’t come up with him on here or Google search. He has a sedan you said and also works on the racks?
    Don’t think I’ll be doing the rack in...
  6. Wanted: Re: 1978 Beta Sedan bright work fasteners.

    Thanks Dave. That’s a good idea. I do have all the trim and a lot of busted clips. I thought parts were hard to come by 20 years ago 😔

    Re: Steering rack source

    Good advice for sure. I remember years ago putting that stop leak in the system but don’t think it worked too well. May try again. Thanks Ben

    Re: Steering rack source

    Ugh. Unfortunately I’m in the same boat. Haven’t given it much thought in 25 years as the car has been sitting waiting for me to get off my a$$ and get to work. Just went to town in the last week...
  11. Re: Regulator/check valve at carb leaking

    Hey SubG,

    I spoke to Mike Pierce and Pierce Manifolds and he couldn’t tell me what the hole on the top of the fuel stabilizer is. Gonna just order another from him. He also said that his has a...

    Nice!!! How do you post pictures to the site? Not seeing a way to do it. Thanks.
  14. Re: Regulator/check valve at carb leaking

    He hasn’t responded but I will follow up if he does. I did install it like you suggested but still leaks out that hole. I wonder if I could just plug it without consequences. Does leaking indicate...

    Looks like you have a mechanical pump. Mine is electric. Maybe that makes a difference.

    Re: High IDLE 1977 Beta saloon 2000

    Nice job!! Car looks nice. Keep up the good work. I’d rebuild the carb for sure. All the soft parts especially if sitting for a long period or just simply old. Just replaced a bunch of fuel lines...
  17. Re: Regulator/check valve at carb leaking

    Great info as always SubG and much appreciated. It’s been mounted horizontally for years but I will try vertically mounting it to see if the leaking stops out the hole. The pump installed is...
  18. Re: Regulator/check valve at carb leaking

    Thanks for that Dave. It does look
    Like that for the most part. Just don’t understand the factory pin hole in the unit. When I said orientation, I meant hole on the top as opposed to the underside...
  19. Regulator/check valve at carb leaking

    The check valve, or as another thread contributor called it, a fuel pressure regulator as seen in an emissions booklet, is leaking fuel when the vehicle is running. I pulled out the unit, which has...

    TY again Dave. Good idea on the pre filter. Just have to figure out the direction of flow. Don’t see any arrows on the pump. Car only had 30k miles when I bought it so confident that it’s...

    Re: Fuel line size 78 Beta Sedan

    Hey Dave. Appreciate all the good info. I’m going to start by replacing all the hoses within the rear compartment under the car. There’s probably 5 or 6 under there. They all look the same size...
