Another groove done. Our own car it is a 1600 cc carburated the throttle body was mounted in cast iron but i went easy and got thru it without breaking the bit. didn't quite get the full depth and it was a little out of alignment, but first drive i feel a difference in the way the car drives. there seems to be more power and less throttle needed at highway speeds. more info to come.

Hi CJ! Sounds good. Did you plug or re-route the PCV valve to improve manifold vacuum? I'd bet it has a distributor and old-style plug wires too. Older engines like yours here offer opportunities for gains in Ignition, starting with increasing plug gaps. If $$ and interest allow, you might upgrade the cap rotor and plug wires.

I learned to look for any system or part in a vehicle that I could find a way to reduce parasitic losses. Tire pressure for example. and Friction...

Of course, today Ron has blessed us with the 100% Pure Snake Oil product line. Using the various Snake Oil products in the appropriate areas of your car WILL kill parasitic losses. The resulting improvements in power, MPG's, smoothness, driveability and overall longevity increase has to be experienced to be believed!:woohoo:

The combination of the Groove, our other"Tricks", and the Snake Oil products, can and will vastly increase satisfaction in your and any other vehicle. We here have the world's best proven Arsenal of engine and vehicle improvements. With nearly no parts needed!!

The most important part or tool you need, is your MIND.

and we can thank Ron Hatton for opening the door and showing the way!!:cheer:

(I'll get off the soap box now)

Git 'er done, CJ!

New set of plugs on this and have done a carb mod from eagle research which was to put a slight vacuum on the float bowl which seems to get the car to run leaner. after taking proper readings today we are getting 5.5 litre per hundred kilometres average. Mainly highway but about 20-30% city.

CJ, that's the first time I've seen mention of Eagle Research's Carb. Enhancer mod in quite awhile.

IT always sounded like it would work to me, I bought one back in '03, and tried to use it on one of the carb's that George Wiseman says it won't work on. A Carter BBD on my Super Six 74 Dart Sport. He was right. Glad to see that it seems to work on your ride!

If this Toyota has a distributor ignition, I have several Ignition ideas to give ya...
