    I pulled apart my TBI this weekend after buying the rebuild kit. Everything was going great until I pulled out the regulator. The spring was broken into about 5 pieces. It seems that the previous owner put in some sort of adjustable FPR and apparantly didn't like the performance. Well looks like the jack ass welded in the adjusting screw. That explains why there was a gas leak. :angry1:

    To top it all off I can't find anyone that carries the whole kit (housing and spring). I also have to rush this so that I can head out to Ocala Nat. Forest this Friday for some wheeling and to pickup my new bumper.

    Is there anyone that sell this kit. I don't have time to go to the junkyard this week so it would have to a web site or I would even buy a used set if the seller would overnight the package.

    Do you have a 2 or 4 BBL TBI unit? I klnow someone that has a stock replacement 2BBL Holley TBI unit that should be a direct bolt on if yours is a 2BBL. He'd prolly let it go fairly cheap.

    This is the stock 2barrel TBI. I've heard to many bad things about the Holly units. Besides I just rebuilt the thing and all i need is the regulator. Thanks though
