  1. 351 W Carb 'throb' at Idle

    A quick flush with carb cleaner inside and out will cure most problems and point you in the right direction for probable repair needed. plugged air bleeder will cause the problem in your video.
  2. Normally the 3/8 fuel line can e used to connect the pcv. Having the spacer plate removed is costing you bottom end power and maybe a fuel over heat trouble as the carb sitting directly on the intake.
  3. Intake Manifold Vacuum Fitting

    Well your choice is hit the junk yard or go with a vac tree connector from your local parts house with a nipple in the intake.
  4. How do you test Power Brake Booster

    Simple test for booster operation. With engine off, depress brake petal a few times till all assist is gone. With foot on brake petal pressing downward, Start engine. If the booster is working your foot will drop slightly as power assist is returned to booster.

  7. Dash guage issues

    While the amp gauge to work is much more involved, Test the oil pressure first by grounding the wire at the sensor and flipping the key to the on position. If the wiring is good the needle will peg to the left. You sending unit my be bad. But also check for the eng to body ground straps are in place and any other grounding points. thsi is a main problem with miss reading guages.

  11. Need advise on UCA bolt

    Good thinking there and something else to ponder, What if your wheel alignment needs shims? The short bolt would need to changed out a a extra cost anyway.
