Finding the Right Connector

Open The Manual

Posted By Andrew B

For the past year I have been restoring the family car.  It’s the car we got around in when I was a kid in the 1970’s.  For all the Aussies out there, it’s a 1973 Holden HQ GTS Monaro – 2 door with the 350 Chev engine under the bonnet.  It’s an incredibly cool and very rare iconic Aussie muscle car.

In its original guise, it had an unfortunate problem – not enough fuel would get delivered to the carburetor at high revs and the engine would starve and not rev out properly.  This powerful car would not reach 100 miles per hour. 🙁

During the rebuild, I’ve installed a larger diameter fuel line and a high-flow fuel pump to make sure this manufacturing glitch will not hold me back once I’m driving this baby again.

So now I have good components to deliver the fuel to the pump and a great carburetor and engine but when trying to connect the pump to the carburetor, I discover that I need a specialist part – I need to find the right connector.  The connector is out there, however the jargon is technical; it’s beyond my know-how, I need to talk to a hydraulics expert, I need to consult a manual.

Such is Beyond Freedom Evolution.

You know when you have great components within you – a solid heart, a smart head, a willing body, big ideas but there’s a connector that’s just a bit technical for you, you have trouble marrying some components together?

Beyond Freedom Evolution contains those connectors – it is the expert manual!

So if you need to connect your high flow fuel system to your engine so you can do a hundred miles per hour, consult the manual, find the connectors and build yourself your own powerful muscle car within.

    Hi Andrew, I know exactly what you are on about. No body can achieve everything that they want by themselves. Even if it is only to look and find the right manual – and boy have we found that manual with Beyond Freedom Evolution (BFE). I see the GTS Monaro is still a bit like us (a work in progress), but I know that you will achieve the finished product and enjoy it for many years to come. I look forward to a ride sometime!!.

    Such a great “connection” there Andrew! Love those moments where the principles of BFE show up in unexpected areas. 🙂

    Love it Andrew. I love cars (mostly new flashy fast ones though) but love how you have explained about BFE being the manual to help you connect your parts.. Totally agree

    Nice analogy Andrew!

    Connecting what I want to achieve with what I’m learning for myself using BFE. Noice!

    Powerful analogy Andrew! Important point is that you could have let this mechanical challenge stop you from finishing the job. Many would. Instead, you found a solution to get around the challenge. Whether we are fixing cars, improving relationships, building successful careers or any other topic, understanding how to be solution oriented is part of the mindset developed by using BFE.

    Hi Andrew
    Love it, I don’t understand much about cars. But I certainly get the connector concept you are talking about with BFE. Look forward to seeing the car on the road.

    Very cool post, Andrew. I connected with the analogy — pun intended! I’m going to reflect on what my connecting part might be. XO

    Thats a sweet ride Andrew, all the best with your project.
    It is amazing how these general principles apply to all areas. Thanks for the reminder.

    Beyond Freedom Evolution certainly helps us make that connection with our higher self & keeps us raising the bar in our life.

    When you easily get to 100mph that’ll seem …. ho hum…. next is 120 … Col

    Super cool and right on analogy, Andrew.

  12. Kim G says:

    Great analogy!

    You’re talking my talk Andrew, I have a 71 Falcon myself, and even with its continuing ‘Quirks’ there is always a way around them to ‘fix’ it. Excellent Post!!

    That is a great analogy Andrew. Loved it and fully understand. Thnk you for that.
