Yep, planning is good.

Is your Tr6 carb or injected - can't remember if your were USA or UK based -
sorry to late/early.

I would love to pick your brains on this one - I'd like it even more so on
my Stag which I think could really do with it for driveability and power.
Wrong forum I know.

My Lucas doesn't really give me much problems except for occasional pedestal
seals and injector 20 cent o-ring which causes damn missing on first start
occasionally. Never can get the idle realy nice though but I believe this
was always bit of a problem - probably valves are tired amongst other
things.

Anyway do share your injection thoughts when you have the time - I'm off to
bed otherwise would chat some more.

Regards
Joe

Joe, does planning count? I've gradually acquired enough to Megasquirt a
big 6, but haven't actually done it yet. I'm looking for reliability and
driveability, not necessarily performance...
