Are you feeding the bottom of the regulator from the rail?

Nah, that's the return. It does look that way in that photo though. I just ditched all those braided hoses for something more low-key.

Well a few years ago I did try to plumb the regulator before the rail so go ahead with the doubting Fortunately someone pointed it out before I cranked the car.

I’ve been busy with work and cleaning out my wife’s old house so we can get ready to sell it. Plus I’ve been trying to find that stupid battery draw in my 142 which is driving me crazy. I dropped off two alternators today to get tested.

I didn’t burn it down...yet. I drove it around the block the other day. Next step will be upgrading brakes (probably going to do what Kyle did for pedals/dual masters). I can’t get a good feel even with the smallest bore master on a single circuit. Doesn’t seem like air in the lines, just seems like a single circuit master can’t push two 4-piston Brembos plus the discs in the rear.

After that I need to get some gauges in this thing. I picked up an extra dash to cut up so I can put gauges in the way I want. Then it just needs some tuning and it’ll be driving.
