Plate forward ?

Got my guages installed and the KDP is pinned, so I'm thinking it's time to slide fuel plate forward. I havn't taken it apart yet, how far can it move (.001&quot and what is a good starting point or just go all the way at once ? And what's with that goofy screw, is that to prevent tampering for emissions or something ? Removing it doesn't look too difficult, just curious. If I do decide to change to another plate do the others slide forward and back to adjust them too ? Thanks, John

Re:Plate forward ?

Lots of room to slide the plate around. Be sure to mark your zero point though, so when you get a TST plate you will have the zero to start with.<br> Have fun with the tamper proof breakoff screw. Mine wouldn't come out for love nor money. Cut off the head and replaced it.<br> I think you'll like it when you go to the TST plate and boost elbow. Much better than the stock plate moved.<br><br>Bill

Get a tst plate and put it in. Mine was already full forward from the factory so I waisted my time taking it apart to adjust you will be much more satisfied with the higher hp plate. Matt

Re:Plate forward ?

Make sure when you go to slide the plate you use a good machinists square or it will mess you all up .I made that mistake when I did mine and ended up re-doing the D#[email protected] thing 3 times &gt;. Also, depending on how many miles your truck has on it (probabloy quite a few since your in the 12v link ) you may need to get your valves adjusted because youve probably got quite a bit of valve lash and it will make your truck very sluggish under about 1500rpm. Hope this helps and I think youll be pretty happy with the few extra horses you get out of the plate, for a while , but BEWARE BOMBING IS ADDICTIVE!!!!<br> Wheels
