    Took some time to rethink and re evaluate everything, ordered more parts. Had to wait for some others.

    In the process of all of this I pulled my inner left abdominal oblique muscle. Put me in the ER for a day and down and out for almost a week. Still in some form of recovery being as careful as I can. But that was almost 3 weeks ago now. So slowly back on the grind.

    Before we get started, let's all be sure to get our clown suits on.

    8012eae8774a433aaed98c2770856ef8.jpg

    Now that we are all ready, here is what I have come to find:

    So, I had to figure out the fuel pressure issue. I did find the correct fuel pressure sensor after trying 3 others I had on hand and another I found through work and two more I ordered via other sources all to be wrong. I found this is the one via summit racing. This took me far too long to find, it is the correct part number but listed for a Alfa Romeo and a Fiat. It works for the speeds as well. This is... THE ONLY PART NUMBER that works for my car and I'm going to assume All speeds. All the others that have been recommended on the forum and all over the Internet do not work. This fixed the fuel pressure issue. Mazda only sells this as a complete replacement fuel rail with sensor and pressure relief valve. The reasoning is due to the fact that the threads can be Damaged when replacing the sensor "air quotes"


    Here is a link to the exact part.
    https://www.summitracing.com/parts/bch-0261545053

    20240322_191043.jpg

    So now the fuel rail pressure issue is fixed, the throttlw position issue is completely gone. The only thing now is rich at idle and some choppiness when running.

    This is where the clown suit comes in real handy ;)

    I am at a point that the last thing is the injectors. Something I knew was a possibility in the beginnin, but refused to admit it. Considering this was a used motor I shut have just replaced them off the get go last fall.

    I have four sets of injectors now and sent a set off to injector RX. Even with 2 day shipping both ways USPS LOST the injector on the way there and the way back. It took about a month for turn around thanks to USPS. But they just showed up yesterday morning.

    Screenshot_20240409_080430_Drive.jpg
    20240418_085344.jpg


    While waiting for the injectors I sourced some injector studs nuts and found these upgraded filters from injector rehab. Since injector RX use's OEM filters I wanted upgraded filters.

    https://injector-rehab.com/product/bosch-metal-universal-filter-8mm/

    A picture of a junk filter from a junk injector next to the new upgraded filter and one installed in the injector for proof they fit.

    20240419_105254.jpg

    While all this was happening I was able to get the fuel tank lock ring tool and ordered a new lock ring and gasket as well those finally showed up. To finally close up the tank.

    20240419_105421.jpg

    I picked up some subframes to be cleaned, primed painted and new bushings put in. As well as new bushings for the front and rear lower controls arm and whiteline rear end links. I am still waiting on the front LCA bushings to be in stock from Damond before those get installed.

    20240413_161730.jpg 20240413_170355.jpg
    20240413_182948.jpg 20240416_185518.jpg
    20240416_185521.jpg

    So far I have bushings for the rear lower control arms, and the forward bushings for the trailing arms. Trying to source bushings for the front subrame as well.

    20240417_190047.jpg 20240417_190025.jpg

    All the while my front and rear sway bars showed up from corksport with the Lower tie bar. Still waiting on the coilovers to ship. Being told they are still waiting on the bodies to get in for assembly then ship out. I'm hoping to see them within... Dare I say two weeks.

    20240409_192250.jpg 20240409_193257.jpg 20240409_194031.jpg

    And picked up a bearing puller kit for the LCA's as well as some transmission work to come. 20240419_105021.jpg

    Please let me know how the bearing puller works for you.

    I have a kit like that, and bought it for the same reason as you. Been useful on many other projects, EXCEPT the control arm bushings.

    I literally got fed up and torched a LCA out of pure anger. Damn thing didn't die.

    You will need a press for the lca bushings

    Don't know about gen 1 but gen 2 the front subframe busing are only available for nonspeeds speeds have stiffer bushings

    I have a 20 ton shop press and all the fancy accessories.

    Got some guidance from @Matt@DM on how to press all out and back on. Hoping to get that all done in the next week. But we'll see. Still trying to be careful.

    I haz 12 ton, but it needs a new hydraulic jack.

    You gotta get real creative in supporting the control arms with some of these presses.

    I've mainly used my press for working 3/4 and 1 ton truck front ends. U joints, ball joints and control arms.

    Sometimes 20 tons isn't enough lol. Gets real fuckin scary standing behind plexiglass hoping it doesn't explode.

    I don't think these will be an issue. The front k frame is the one I'm more worried about. But I might have to use the c clamp press for those.

    I had on press that was a smaller tabletop one I had to return because it was too small to let me position the arms in a way that would let me attack the bushings

    Yeah fuck that.

    I might tackle this tomorrow if I can get the injectors done in a timely fashion and I'm feeling ok.

    Can't clean and prep for paint with bushings still on.

    Small update, got to the rail and removed, time for a little clean up, pull injectors, clean install and back together.

    I cut an old set of bolts with a bolt cutter to get the washers.
    20240420_091051.jpg 20240420_091513.jpg

    @Matt@DM informed me the tmm was backwards too lol, installed it the way I got it from the previous owner. Didn't even consider it might be wrong lol. So fixed that while I had the bat box and intake out yet again.

    20240420_105630.jpg 20240420_110247.jpg

    Got the rail off and swapped the FRPS and PRV to the newer rail that had less damage to the rail pressure sensor area. I'll get good pictures of that damage there later.

    20240420_113906.jpg 20240420_113910.jpg 20240420_115751.jpg

    Lunch time and give my back a break for an hour. Back at it shorty.

    Always had problems taking these out till I got one of these impacts.

    20240420_140925.jpg
    Cylinder 2 and four injectors had some leakage for sure.

    20240420_142012.jpg 20240420_142229.jpg 20240420_142320.jpg 20240420_142447.jpg 20240420_142458.jpg 20240420_142504.jpg 20240420_142509.jpg 20240420_142757.jpg
    I tried to get the best picture I could, I had already put the newer rail back together before I thought about these pictures. But this is the port the fuel rail pressure sensor mates to. As you can see in these pictures, when installed you potential destroy the seat and put metal into the rail. This could also cause the rail to no longer hold pressure. The one on the car now was from the parts car. The other two came from this car originally and the new motor.

    20240420_142914.jpg 20240420_142921.jpg 20240420_142840.jpg
    All four metered good, that's a bonus, sending these off to get cleaned at some point.

    20240420_143058.jpg 20240420_143109.jpg 20240420_143124.jpg 20240420_143136.jpg
    Scrub scrub clean clean boring boring

    20240420_143553.jpg 20240420_144944.jpg
    Studs, washers and injector retainers, still need to drill out the original washers.

    20240420_145015.jpg 20240420_150812.jpg 20240420_151102.jpg
    Dats good stuff, fresh injectors, seals, o rings, and upgraded filters

    20240420_145308.jpg 20240420_145621.jpg 20240420_150056.jpg 20240420_150100.jpg 20240420_150217.jpg 20240420_151607.jpg 20240420_153558.jpg
    The new OEM style filters compared to the ones from injector rehab.

    20240420_153746.jpg 20240420_153822.jpg
    Don't forget the lube.

    20240420_154255.jpg 20240420_154429.jpg 20240420_154505.jpg 20240420_164905.jpg
    Some more pictures of how awesome this tool is.

    20240420_170431.jpg 20240420_170443.jpg 20240420_170503.jpg
    Figured I would pull the plugs, inspect, clean, re gap, and back in.

    20240420_171303.jpg 20240420_171309.jpg 20240420_174013.jpg
    Annnnnd I dropped one... Well fuck... Off to town, back in an hour 20 or so.

    Well, can't complain here. Priced matched for online sales at O'Reilly's, got 8 plugs for the price of 4. Not a bad deal. Back to the house!

    I mean... It wasn't intentional. But now I'll have a complete back up set in car at all times. And there spares. Brand new will go in tonight.
