I did buttonwillow by myself....dont recommend it unless your are in a good state of mind and motivated to do so along with your health status. Takes a lot out of you. I did take a lunch break in middle of day and when I think i needed one though. Think I lost like
8-9lbs that weekend just in water weight. Was fun and dont know how I did it but I wont do that again probably, lol.
I have the same ATP gate here. The pin is pressed into the arm, and it might be peened over. The older gates were welded if I'm not mistaken.
The pin itself is:
5.90mm dia with the groove, then there is a shoulder that is 10mm dia shoulder that is s2mm tall. This shoulder is what bottoms out against the flapper arm.
I do have a spare ATP gate and my old gate. Maybe I will grind the broken piece off my old T3 gate and weld to ATP gate. It has a hole instead of a c-clip groove. I have had the c-clip disappear on track and they are impossible to find if you drop them.
I'd call up ATP and see if they will warranty that. Seems like a simple weld on the pin would work.
That looks like a better design and easier to find when it flings off when working on it in the paddock. I haven't taken my car out of the trailer since the beginning of December.Just adding something that may be of use, I had one of the ATP clips finally fall off. I'm giving these a try, I'll report back over the weekend about how well it worked:
I painted it, then decided to get it machined and they hot tanked it. Current engine now has close to 9,000 race miles on it. The head even more. These redblocks are tough.If you paint your freshly rebuilt block, it will die a quick death, anyway. It’s the way with Redblocks.
how far into the wiring did you have to go to get the pump wired? like did you have to extend the wiring on the chassis side? or just to the connector that plugs into the chassis harness. That tank was a really good modification, it's something I did on my 90 regina 740 wagon a few years ago.
