    Only thing I wasn’t quite so keen on with Per’s design was that it required a rectangular cut out in the firewall ... I thought at first that was required to get the socket through, but now I see that the split grommet seals work with a 3” circular hole.

    Maybe it would be possible to design your own circular plug that covered the mounting bolts/screws (oval face perhaps) for a clean look and incorporate some sort of grommet (seems absent from Per’s design) to keep engine bay fumes out. Why not go crazy and have a Pro-Flo logo on it?

    What CAD package do you use .... I am messing around with Fusion 360 because it seems good and is free (for personal use) ..... If you get a file you would care to share ... I would like to have a look.
    My son has AutoDesk Inventor through his high school. Still new at it though. Best he's done so far from scratch is a spark plug holder. :-)

      Hi the15car

      You may care to have a look at this link it will give you a free version of Fusion 360 that will work with adobe programs and it will output STEP and IGES files that are industry standard CAD files. There is quite a steep learning curve but YouTube has a lot of tutorials and with a little bit of “focus” you will get the hang of it.

      I made up the adapter seen here using the free version of fusion 360 (which I had 3d printed) so it should work for you ...

      Adobe Illustrator has a useful feature of being able to take a scan of a paper template and trace the outline. It saves it in a vector format and or you can import it as a dxf file into fusion 360. Unless you do this all the time it takes some time to work it all out .... but again YouTube can help.

      I have no commercial interest in this online course, but it might help those using Fusion 360 to 3D Pint parts LINK

        Does anybody know what the brand and model is for the large connectors used for the sensors/injectors and coils/iac?

        Did more searching and found it - Delphi GT 150
