Any FB folks convert their shifter boot to leather?

I've searched, but nothing definitive. Has anyone converted the rubber boot to something like an SA leather boot? I see some Miata boots that seem like they could work. I've not been successful in...

Forgot to mention, just small amount of bluish smoke that it always makes after sitting for a few days, not black like I'd think if too much fuel. Gonna check everything I can tomorrow morning...

Yes, pumping doesn't change it, which is also odd as even if it would cough, I'd have something to go on. I can hear the fuel pump with ignition on and have let it sit in the on position for a...

If the car sits for more than a day, it will crank for several minutes before firing. Once running, it's flawless. Leads me to believe it's fuel related, but I think that would persist while...

Ewe should just buy the seals, parts don't cost that much (couldn't resist ?).
When parts are scarce, making do works, but these are easy to find.

I wish these were around last year when I had to buy tires, I would love to have the RWL on the car, not to mention a little wider. I'm sure they will be gone the next time I need them.

This is great information, thanks. I always like to know the "why" behind quirky engineering. Lord knows my F-150 has more than it's fair share of quirkiness too.

Dumb question, but why plug them, I assume they are like that for a reason? I just replaced mine, kinda a pain to do, but the old ones lasted 34 years and should outlast the engine.

What color smoke? White or blue/gray? Do you give it a stab of the gas when you start it?

If it's white, maybe the intake o-rings.

Sometimes the seals stick after sitting and takes a few...

I would hazard to guess with the new aluminum pump, I'll reduce my belt squeal a little. That cast iron unit is very heavy and such a heavy impeller, is harder to get spinning. At least that's what...
