Mini seats only have the front mounts. Come off in a matter of minutes, but for a racing bucket seat they really need to be secured in 4 places. Could be sorted I'm sure.

The pins and R clips will be as strong the nut and bolt fixing that's there at the moment I'd have thought, failing that I could just use wing nuts instead!
Ideally you'd have better fixings at the rear but as its just for track days and not full blown racing I'm happy to just make do with the little bit of play.

Nothing stopping you putting a pin through the floor and the opposite end on the back of the bucket seat. Same principle as bonnet pins.

I'd like to make sure if I accelerate/brake hard or get shunted from behind your seat won't pop out with just clips

Might only be a trackday but if some other gimboid can't drive and piles into you and puts you in a roll and you ain't got a cage you better hope that's some tough pins!

i dont fuss,, there are verry good aviation pins with a nureld gripp with a ring pull, they releace a ball when you pull the ring, they do not give at all unless you pull , seat mounting should not be taken lightly, nor should a rat trying to get up your trouser leg doing 50,m,p,h, all of a suden your nUts become more important,

Just finished fitting an adjustable fuel regulator.



Only had that bananasty bit of hose to use as a vac hose, will replace that obviously.
Got it set to bang on 3 bar, that'll do till I fit the Walbro pump tomorrow or Monday.
Awaiting the arrival of a wideband too, that'll give me the chance to use the ECU's self mapping mode, don't think it's going to get to the tuner before my rolling road day, so hopefully the wideband will do a chunk of the work for me.

Out with the old:

In with the new:

It's noisier than the old MPi pump but its certainly not as loud as the cheap 255 pumps you see appear on here every now and then.

Edit: also found some windscreen washer hose and tidied up the vac hose on the AFPR till some silicone arrives.

Dunno if you've found this on the web.

Quite informative and says best to set the regulator to 3.2 bar. Any more over fuels it.
