Ok, well I'm trying to get a set of 370s and the 0.020" sealing washers (or thinner if possible). I think I'm goin to yank my plate and let my afc be my full load rack stop. I'm wanting more details on the afc washers. I'm going to grind, not flip. But I'm just curious what the washers look like and What to expect before I pull it apart.
I'm also going to grind the barrel of the afc foot too. And then whatever else gets in the way. I thnk I might leave my stock rack plug in cuz swapping out to a Mack plug just might be too much fuel on a stock hx35... But if anyone has some good pics of the washers and some info, hook me up!
I want to move on past the Basic Performance Upgrades!
Heres a pic of the afc with flat washers inplace of the cup washer on the spring side of the afc. Hope this helps
Thais guys. I did read about fender washers too as an option. I looked this picture over real hard bu I couldn't figure out what part to grind on the washer. I couldn't see where the flanged cup part was. Makes more sense now that you mentioned it is alreay a flat washer.
I'm gonna tear into it as soon as I can bring the truck home. I haven't been driving it since it's for sale but I just sold one of my other cars so maybe I'll play with it more.
No, I'm not gonna grind the foot. I can adjus the smoke screw and it'll do the same job. I'm def gonna grind the barrel on the foot. I'm not gonna swap/flip the washers cuz it'll prevent the afc foot from returning fully to it's rest position. So it won't be able to control preboost fuel like stock.
just go to the hardware store and get two washers with 8mm hole in it and do it right. for only a few cents there is no reason to do it any other way.
this mod is super easy. and you will gain noticeable power from it so just dig in and get er done. let us know how it goes.
Definitly! As soon as I can bring the truck back to the house, I'm gonna go thru it. I hope the deal on these new 370s goes thru as well. I was this [....] close to having 20x10" billet rims on my truck, with 34x12.50s too! But the center bore doesn't clear fullfloater axles I'm havin too much fun with this!
