Yuk! That's UGLY!!!! Man, what a lesson that is. And, that is one problem with EFI - they use higher pressure on the fuel system so leaks are even more of a hazard. But, carbs can leak too.

Bummer!!!! Thanks for the reminder - I'll get fire extinguishers for my trucks, plural.

And the firewall plate - if you go that way.

Edit: Also, when you get the transmission cover also get the screws and speed nuts that hold it on.

I don't know if the bell housing pattern is the same, nor about the in/out shafts. The guy to ask would be Rogue_Wulff as he has one of those Mazda trucks. Don't know what transmission, but he may...

No, it isn't different. But your firewall may be slightly different. Some of the 80 trucks may not have the dimpled spots showing where the holes would go. But, IIRC, Rogue_Wulf reported that his '80...

This is one of the rare times I will differ from Dave's recommendation - I would install the firewall reinforcement plate as I install the clutch assembly. I don't like having something that may...

I doubt anything has changed in the dizzy since installation, although it is worth checking out when you have the cap off. And, I remember this has come up seemingly as a consequence of the carb...
