#1533758 Air fuel ratio gauge to achieve the correct fuel mixture at idle

Posted by wayno on 08 December 2017 - 05:20 PM

I have a feeling this is still about the exhaust popping.

That’s about as high as mine ever gets now, after I drilled an 1/8” hole in it. The line is basically the “warmed up” mark. Since October, it never passes the line. In the summer it will go a little bit past.

If you’re already in there, 100% worth the time and money to avoid having to do dumb shit like turn your blower fan off at stop lights.

I feel your pain. Get people interested, that's the key. I have business related threads going on other forums and I work hard to keep my followers interested. But then, I have a business to promote, so I work pretty hard at it.

I apologize if I derailed your thread.

Like I've said. I've done this to blocks without heads on just laying on the junk yard ground. The inertia of the rotating assembly is enough resistance.

Which should all be in one thread. You keep looking new, with every post. Stop doing that.
If you come up with a cool discovery, make a How-To. But every single nut and bolt does not need its own dedicated thread.

You should start a new thread telling people how-to not start a new thread every time they have something to work on.

Oh and dp, I’m pretty sure I have that choke cable x2.

I dont get the keeping the stock choke cable?   buy a Generic.  You already took the stock wheels with hubcaps off to put chevy wheels on. whats the difference.

Because it wouldn't match the other four knobs. Who wants to swap out one stock wheel and roll down the road with a single chevy wheel.

All I am saying is turn your motor with the dizzy cap off and see what happens.  On mine only one set of points ever opened which would make that set the primary no?  And I don't remember what else didn't 'fit' with the pertronix but I seem to remember the magnet collar thingy not fitting right.


I did when I had my dizzy out a few days ago to free the stuck pedestal. Both points open at the same time.


If one of your points wasn't moving, something was either wrong with it, or that sets of points was adjusted far enough out that it wasn't being contacted by any of the lobes. The points open and close mechanically.

Dude.... Nobody cares.

It seems like you're very difficult to please. God help those poor people who have you as a customer.

Yeh, I hear you but hang in there. You have to realize our vehicles are over 40 years old and things will fall apart. So don't take it personally.

Wayne, I thought it might have been the exhaust at first, but it sounded different than exhaust rattle.

d.p., haha. If it didn't look so cool I'd gotten rid of it a long time ago. Lol

Tanker, thanks. I hope it's nothing. But it sure does sound like something.

Mainer, I'll try that next time.

#1524730 Broken timing cover dizzy mount

Posted by G-Duax on 20 October 2017 - 09:38 AM

Most likely cause is the new blue gasket, and everything bolted down with old black gasket material still on the machined surfaces.

#1 cause of broken intake manifolds, and other cast aluminum parts.


Why not do it right, and just replace the front cover.

There has to be hundreds of those things laying in garages.
