    Can anyone help me ID these chips?

    The chip in the first photo doesn't appear to have anything on its label. It could be anything. The 2nd chip (BBKJ 9464) is the emissions recall chip issued in 1991/1992. The original '87 chip was marked ACXA 094.

    Hypertech 41372

    The Hypertech 41372 chip uses all stock spark advance tables so the suggestion to get a newer (TT) chip is good advice. There are only a few changes in the chip versus a stock 87 and they are higher torque converter lock-up mph, start-up AFR richer from 68 - 133 degrees coolant, richer PE AFR...

    Chip config

    Sorry for the late response to your question but I just saw this post. The answer to " Is there a way to check the size of injectors configured within a chip? " is yes, well sort of. You need to put the chip in a PROM reader so the numbers inside can be copied. One of these numbers is used by...

    Cam Position Sensor/Crank Position Sensor Testing

    The no-start tree refers to Code 41 which is Cam Sensor failure (no output pulses). You don't need a scan tool to determine if an error code is stored in the computer. Just use a metal paperclip to short pins A & B in the ALDL connector. This is the port your scan tool plugs into and pins A &...

    Fuel Gauge reading wrong

    The gas gauge sending unit is just a variable resistor. It's resistance is 90 ohms when the tank is full and zero ohms when empty. It is linear so 1/2 tank is 45 ohms, etc. You'll need a volt-ohm meter to troubleshoot it. Two wires are used to make it work, a pink wire for the gauge and a...

    Casper chip?

    Pull the chip out carefully and look at the bottom. There should be a sticker with additional info such as the injectors it was made for, max spark advance, etc. That was the convention "back in the day". If it say "Bluetop Performer" you're in luck because I have the details for it.

    FP Regulator bad?

    I was thinking the same thing which is why my return line was suspect. However I can't see any kinks, I enlarged the opening and blew air through it 3 times - made no difference. It certainly appears that the frame mounted return line is the problem because I first disconnected the hose at...

    FP Regulator bad?

    In 1998 when I swapped the stock turbo with a TA49, I wanted just 'a bump up' from stock. The GN was my daily driver and I was commuting 110 miles a day. As for the fuel pump I'm not opposed to using a smaller one. I just want to provide the fuel required for the Lucas 009 injectors at 16 -...

    FP Regulator bad?

    The pressure at hot idle is set to 43.5 vac off. The chip is my own design. As a temporary fix for the rich idle and normal driving, I have the ecm command less fuel during non-boost conditions and switch to normal (for my injectors) under boost (set to 16-18 lbs). I can change anything the...

    FP Regulator bad?

    Sorry guys, I was away for a few days. Let me start with info I should have posted much earlier (or put in my signature). 1987 GN (original owner) Stock engine, TA49 turbo (adj. wastegate rod), stock intercooler, stock intake with open 4" K&N, stock MAF, flow matched Delphi/Lucas 009 injectors...

    FP Regulator bad?

    Well I'm back from the garage and have good news and bad news. Good news first - I was able to drill the Return line to #28 (0.1405) without destroying the Saginaw fitting. I blew out the line from the rear then hooked everything back up. Now for the bad news - fuel pressure w/vac off = 43 psi...

    FP Regulator bad?

    I've already done that, twice actually. First with a narrow awl then again with one that has a wider taper. It helped but didn't solve the problem. Maybe I don't have enough muscle, or my awl is too short. (Although my wife never complained).;)

    FP Regulator bad?

    I do have number gauge drill bits and intend to start with a #34, then #32, then 1/8. If the tube wall thickness can 'handle it', I'll keep drilling with a #30 and possibly a #29. It's interesting how the flowrate increases with each larger opening. #34 = +3%, #32 = +12%, 1/8 = +30%, #30 =...

    FP Regulator bad?

    Anthony, thank you for the flow info and the link to a calculator. This is exactly what I needed to know before I put a drill on the pipe. OK here's what I learned thanks to Anthony, and please correct me if this is wrong. Drilling the pipe end to 9/64" will increase the flow rate by 65% but...

    FP Regulator bad?

    You're right Charlie, the pump pressure is higher than the return line can handle. I proved the culprit is the frame mounted portion, checked it visually for crimps and blew air through it from back to front. Since the fitting end opening is so small, I'm assuming that is the "restriction"...

    FP Regulator bad?

    Okay, PACECARTA pointed out that the Return down-pipe from FPR and the frame mounted line are not the same size. Obviously I didn’t measure the two lines but my theory was derived after putting the same o-ring on the end of each pipe. Neither fits snug but below the engine, the o-ring falls...

    FP Regulator bad?

    The restriction is not in the line from FPR to below the engine. That pipe is fine. It's in the next section that runs over to the passenger side then along the frame, back to the rear axle. My guess is that the restriction is the end of that pipe where it was crimped to make the saginaw...

    Factory Fuel Line o-rings

    Since I recently went through this very same exercise, I thought I'd share my discovery for those that find this thread in the future. Also knowing the part numbers you'll no longer have to depend on the clown behind the counter. The Supply Line o-ring is referred to as 3/8" and the Return...

    Fuel tank vent line ??

    Thank you, These should do the trick.

    Fuel tank vent line ??

    I also want to replace my return fuel line with a rubber hose but I'm having difficulty finding the correct fittings to go from FPR to hose. Maybe you can help me. My situation is different in that I'm just replacing the return line with 1/4" high pressure hose but we both need a male fitting...
