knkayotte Posted November 15, 2005 Share Posted November 15, 2005 Well, it was a good weekend. Installed a new Holley carb, new plug wires, tweaked the timing, and adjusted my idle. Much easier when you have a timing light with an tach on it. Man she runs sweet now. Plug color looks perfect. Adjusted the timing wrong the first time and had a nice little bon fire in the carb, ouch. Won't do that again, didn't cause any damage thank god.Sorry Bryan couldn't get the quad jet to work right. Was waaaaaaay to rich for my car, left two nice black spots on my garage floor. Almost choked me out of the garage, tearful experience. I'll get the carb back to you asap. Hope your not in a hurry.Plugged the hole for my oil pressure gauge, looks like they tried to repair once, but it still leaks. Will wait until I upgrade my gauges and install an electronic one.Bypassed my heater core as it or the hose is leaking, couldn?t tell which. Tackle that problem another day.Next on the plate, fix the parking brake, causing a very annoying squeak sound while driving along. When you pull up on the park brake handle, the noise goes away.Also ordered Patriot Side pipes and new shorty headers, might have time to work on it this weekend. Tired of my redneck exhaust (rusty muffler poked with a screwdriver).Link to previous update: Previous updateLater all, Keith Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
