Had the engine out of the Bradley for a while now to access the fuel tank. I needed to add a bottom fuel outlet to the tank, relocate the external fuel pump, hook the normal tank vent back up, block off the vent in the filler cap, remove the low pressure filter ahead of the pump and replace it with a high pressure filter after the pump. I did all this to cure a vapor lock problem it was having in hot weather. That and a fuel spillage problem from the filler cap when the tank was full. (Ruined a paint job.)
Got every thing back together today and installed the plasma ignition as well. Took it for a rest drive this evening and it runs better than ever. Pulls strong all the way to 6000 RPM. Leaned out the mixture slightly, but if I go too far lean it bogs on initial launch at part throttle.
The engine starts very quickly and there is no hint of vapor lock!
I have to admit I've be in auto parts sales for most of my adult life and some of my teenage years... Mostly for the discount on parts because I love playing with cars I do own 6 of them. 1 being my Bradley GT . and I've never heard of plasma ignition before. So off to the Google I went. So today I've learned something new and cool. So thank for the post

I have more information about it posted in the "Off Topic" section under the title of "Plasma Ignition Experiments". I've been a gear head all my life as well. I first learned of this simple method about five years ago at the Energy Science and Technology Conference held each year in Hayden, ID. Aaron Murakami discovered this simple process, patented it, and offers it open source for anyone to replicate.

leonardabell: Dakota, if you are looking for a GTII windshield, you may be SOL. They were made just for those cars and scarce as hens teeth.
