Glad I've been waiting years to replace my bad lower joints!

On those uppers, is the joint in a different location than the stock version? I'm wondering if the SAI or roll center is the same.

If a third run ever goes, I'd take a second setup to have for work where I see a lot of T3 with running issues. Save a lot of time to have easy data available.

Not necessarily. You need to get the other inner race off to compare to. Just because it has gouges in it, doesn't mean it won't fit correctly. If it's worn down, that's when there is a problem.

This is a 1985 distributor, so I'll have to measure a 86 and later, but it shows just over 59* as the window size and around 122* (actually closer to 121 after I zoomed in after saving the screenshot) ...

I see an awful lot of posts saying they are okay with the closures from people who don't live in Utah.

It was nice here when everyone was afraid of Mormons and liquor laws with bar memberships.

Unplug the cts and see if the temp goes to -40. I suspect you have a wiring issue issue though, but it could be an ecm as well.

Please explain the pic with the intake and exhaust pulses.
