Re: [DML] Re: Contemplating a Carb Swap

Again - nothing to do with the car, the man or the company.  These personal 
attacks will stop NOW or I will stop them.  That goes for everyone involved.

Why in the world would you read a complete thread but skip over my posts in it? 
Is it because my posts in fact do not support your ad hominem attacks against 

I just reread the entire thread too, *INCLUDING* my posts. A summary of the 
posts you skipped:

Message #85349: Outdoor display area at DCS'14 will be better for Chad's planned 
workshop than indoor display at DCS'12 was.

Message #85354: (Reply to Chad) A 2 barrel carburetor is perfectly sized for a 

Message #85356: (Reply to Steve) Carburetion is compatible with Chad's 
performance modified PRV.

Message #85369: (Reply to Steve) Chad impresses me as capable of making his own 
decisions about his own car -- he certainly is within his rights.

Message #85371: (Reply to Martin) I do not think a Renault/Peugeot manifold with 
dual Solex's is the best option for Chad's conversion.

Message #85377: (Reply to Chad) Picture of how I limped one of my Lincolns home 
when its fuel pump failed.

Message #85379: (Reply to Steve) I agree that Chad's new fuel pump should not be 
grounded via the inertia switch.

Message #85384: (Reply to Martin) Explaining differences between single plane 
and dual plane intake manifolds (Renault/Peugeot manifold he is selling is 
single plane).

Message #85389: (Reply to Martin) Yes, I *HAVE* driven a DeLorean with a 
Renault/Peugeot intake manifold installed.

Message #85435: (Reply to John) I suspect that Chad's fuel pump failure was not 
the primary motivation for his planned conversion.

Message #85450: (Reply to Chad) With a disclaimer at the beginning: Discussion 
Chad and I would have had at DCS'12 about his conversion.

Message #85455: (Reply to Steve) With a disclaimer at the beginning: More 
discussion Steve, Chad, and I woudl have had if Chad's  conversion was discussed 
at DCS'12.

Message #85456: (Reply to Marc) Isn't the Mustang carb he is reporting problems 
with a 1 barrel Holley, not a 2 barrel Motorcraft?

Message #85467: (Reply to Marc) Problems he is reporting with his Mustang are 
likely caused by it sitting idle.

Message #85471: (Reply to Marc) Carb on his Mustang is not a good design -- no 1 
barrels seem to be.

Message #85477: (Reply to Marc) Trying to understand why he would change his 
distributor as part of a carb swap.

Message #85480: (Reply to Marc) Distributor recommendation for his Mustang.

Message #85483: (Reply to Andy) I couldn't install K-Jet on my PRV even if I 
wanted to -- the heads have no injector bungs.

Message #85485: (Reply to Martin) I do understand K-Jet, and was able to tune my 
old Eurospec installation quite successfully despite bad advice from he and 
Darren Bowker.

Message #85489: (Reply to Martin) Example of bad advice given by Darren.

Message #85490: (Reply to David) Satirical response to his suggestion that I 
modify my heads to accept K-Jet.

Message #85492: (Reply to Martin) I have two different styles of K-Jet throttle 
bodies -- which one does he want me to look at? 

Message #85494: (Reply to Martin) Picture of the incorrect barb Darren told me 
to attach spark advance to.

Message #85499: (Reply to Martin) More examples of bad advice from Darren and 

Message #85500: (Reply to Steve) How I am helping Chad at this time.

Message #85502: (Reply to David) Chad has made it very clear that his planned 
conversion is an elective procedure.

Message #85506: (Reply to Eric) Explanation and pictures of custom parts I made 
for my own conversion.

Message #85517: (Reply to Louis) Lighthearted comment about T Shirts I am not in 
fact making.

Message #85523: Defending Chad's decision and pointing out responses
to it.

That's it. Every single post I have made in this thread. I see nothing to 
support you accusations that I am:
- Confusing facts and opinions
- "Making inflammatory, erroneous exaggerated statements wrapped up in as much 
flowery language as possible"
- "Shit stirring"
- Making sermons that will pass into DeLorean lore
