Who is running the TGP forum?  For the past month or so it's been bombarded with SPAM.

Taken care of.  That was the result of one spammer somehow registering a heap of accounts. I rarely visit over there these days as you've noticed. I don't think Luke visits there often anymore either. Maybe someone here that does can get in touch with Luke and be promoted to mod or admin status.

Its not really looked after too much these days, I don't think I have any powers over there. I haven't visited myself in quite a long time.

Maybe it would be a good idea to merge the forum with ours. Maybe a forum within a forum.

I was thinking the same exact thing, we could use the numbers and I'm sure there's a bunch of stuff over there that pertains to other first gens

I think I've suggested it before, but I doubt it's that simple to do. Keeping them separate is likely the easiest.

 

 

Sent you a PM Chris. :thumbsup:

I know its been talked about, and not saying it won't ever happen but for the time being I feel its best kept on its own site.

I wish that the pics were still on it with the DIY for the walbro? walboro? whatever fuel pump install.  Now that the land rover is fixed, I think my TGP is going to get some love.

I don't see why it would be. probably would be advisable to put a fuel pressure regulator on it

No, fuel pump install is the same as any first gen w-body.  Fuel Pressure Regulator is different between the turbo 3.1 and NA 3.1 but you don't need to do anything with it.  I installed a new hangar/sending unit at the same time as they get quite rusty.

 

I would like to see the TGPforum brought over here to make sure the information isn't lost, but from what little I know about databases and such that house the information, I doubt it would be easy/possible.

I have the 3.4 DOHC. Thats why i ask. Im considering a walbro if my AC Delco ever goes out.

It's virtually a direct fit. I think the p/n's are in the write up. It never got put into the faq or anything but it's here somewhere.

I haven't posted here in many years (I didn't bother to resurrect my old account but it looks like it is still here, FutureTGPer).  But I was just thinking about the old TGP gang and looked at TGPforum for the first time in 5 years or more, and was sad to see its a ghost town.  I learned a lot over there in my late teen and early 20s and was sad to see the TGP community looks a little gutted from its hay day.  Does everyone make a wish every year that Jeff M would show back up and breathe life into these old GM's again?  I know I do, that guy was a force.  I got to meet him in person a few times, he was like standing next to a roaring fire, just a constant crackle of input and output.  I still wonder what became of the guy.

The TGP forum sees some action at times.  I tend to post here and FB more though.
