I learned something new yesterday: the injectors need to match.  If you have a "matched" set of injectors that aren't identical, your ECU will have problems figuring things out.  Apparently, the ECU knows something about the injectors, liking some types, but not other types.

I always wanted to sling some paint.  Here, I have to paint in straight lines, and be careful of the edges.  For some reason, whenever I mention slinging paint, people start making suggestions of drop cloths.  One small incident on the hardwood floors, and they never forget.

What will happen to the content on his site?  Will it fall into the void?

I couldn't get these to work.

General Fiero Discussion / Fiero track video
« on: April 22, 2018, 10:39:03 AM »
About 4 years ago, I stumbled across a video of a Fiero running a track.  It was a white V8 Fiero.  The location was supposed to be Germany.  I've seen this video a few times since then, but not recently.  Today, I was looking for the video, but couldn't find it.  Not much to go on, I know.

This came up, because I saw a V8 emblem on ebay, but it wasn't as nice as the one in the aforrmentioned video.

Edit to add: Has anyone else seen such a video?

Yeah, gotta love doctors.

There is a test for nerves.  It probably would wreak havoc on your stimulator, but they send signals down the nerves by sticking needles in you and running current through them.  It used to be a painful, 4-hour ordeal, but it isn't as bad now as it used to be.  I think the last time it took 15-20 minutes, and was basically just annoying.  Using this method, they were able to determine which nerves were severed and where.  I had numerous locations, and my nerves were basically in sections--some as short as 3 inches.  As I recall, they would tweak the controls on their device and control my arm and fingers.

Another possible alternative is deadening.  They can deaden particular nerves, rather than an area.  When they deaden the nerve that is feeling pain, they should be know where to look for the problem.

Since you're so active, you probably don't have this, but sometimes people get calcium deposits on their spine, which pinches nerves.  Basically, just just suffer through it.  I don't remember much more about it, except that it took several weeks to recede.

Of course, I'm no medical person.  I'm just spitballing.  I have no idea what these things cost, but I ran up huge medical bills.

I wonder if you could get a sonogram.  Since it's technically auditory, it shouldn't cause issues.

General Discussion / Re: Amazon!

One of the nice things about brick-and-mortar stores is that I can grab an item, pay for it, and then have it.  With Amazon, I can't grab an item, and paying for a product only means that I have spent money.  Now Amazon can't find the product.  They claim it was shipped, but never paid for shipment, and have no shipping info.  According to Amazon's tracking, the shipment was lost in transit.  They "sent" a replacement, supposedly certified overnight.  I always thought there was a receipt that you got for certified mail.  Amazon says no.  Not for business certified.  Amazon "sent" a second replacement, then cancelled the order, because they can't find it to send.  I requested a refund.  Now, Amazon says I must wait for all 3 to be resolved.  They want USPS to take care of all 3.  USPS refuses, saying Amazon must provide info.

I drink lots of cranberry juice, because I like it, but in theory it helps prevent kidney stones.

Sorry to read this.

Pinched nerve?  Did they disable the device in your back, just for testing purposes?

The money I've spent on doctors would've purchased a new Lamborghini.  Insurance picked up less than $100K.  The medical "experts" never were able to do anything but refer me to another specialist.  I had brain scans, color 3D scans of my lungs, and every imaginable scan for which they could use me as a guinea pig.  After they severed the nerve, I felt better.

Not I, but it seems that most everyone else has a manual transmission.  I think Dave just picked up one.  Perhaps he could compare his, to look for that part.  Isn't that control box basically sealed?  Foreign objects should be denied entry.  It seems that that transmission ran fine for 7 months.

At least you didn't have to pull the transmission.

What did you do with the control box you took off the "new" transmission?  I'm curious if you could compare notes with someone else.
