    Accelerator pump tuning guidance

    No vacuum on meter at idle. My answer for timing are in twined in your post. Primary idle mix screws made no difference screwing in or out. Secondary turning either in increased idle. Thanks

    Accelerator pump tuning guidance

    I was thinking the same thing on the jets. From what I read on holley's website and other places they 570 normally came with 54 primary and 65 secondary. Mine had 64 primary and 68 secondary. I know my secondarys are 64 cause I moved the front to the back. and fronts I am pretty sure is 58's. It's still a tad rich, but not near what it was. I was pretty familiar with how to adjust the cams, but wasn't aware of the nozzle til recent research. But, having it come with the larger jets then what was specified on the site I am starting to wonder what the nozzle size actually is. I have no idea what stream size of volume a nozzle should spray, but I was surprised at how thick the stream was that came out. But like I said, nothing to compare that too.

    I actually did check those when I was fighting it being rich. I should probably pull the carb and verify the slot is still correct. From what I gathered the slot should look square when set properly. My cam looks more red then pink right now. I was gonna pull the nozzle tomorrow and verify which size it is once I got some good guidance from this thread.

    I set the fuel mix screws with vacuum gauge. Power valve is not stock but is a 6.5. It's probably year or so old. Yes I did change the jets. It was running 64's up front and 68's in back out of the box. and was extremely rich. I am now running, if memory serves me, 60's(maybe 58's) think I still have the package, up front 64's in back. I set ignition using light. at 10 degrees. with advance unplugged. But yeah mostly by ear. distributor is using metered vacuum. explain the process using vacuum gauge and tach and I'll reset it how every you say. Carb has site glasses and primary and secondary are both right at bottom. thanks

    No I did not. I will readjust it tomorrow using that technique. thanks

    Ha that's what my wife says when It try to explain something to her. Bog probably not the best word. stumble is more appropriate. Ok, so, idles great, put it in gear take off normal no issues runs good. At 40 or so if you are accelerating and floor it it picks up and goes fine. If you are running 40 and let off of it and let it coast for a few seconds and get into it hard it will stumble for a second then pick up and take off fine. if you are sitting park and floor it from dead idle it stumbles for a split second and takes off fine. If in park and you have the throttle down a bit around 1200 rpms and floor it it picks up fine.
  8. Car has original 302 2v but with 2 year old holley 570 street avenger. Not sure on specs of motor. By ear sounds like small cam. Car runs great except for kicking it down from idle. It bogs a bit. You can smell fuel when it does for split second. I adjusted the arm and it seems correct. You touch the throttle and it starts to squirt. The nozzle shoots out 2 thick streams fast. I haven't pulled the nozzle yet to get the size, but it almost seems to much too fast. Next steps?

    Sail panel

    Yeah luckily I saw the tab on the back if the panel and read about it a little before hand. But thanks for the heads up.

    Much appreciated Brian. I figured out it was the skin only from your pic.

    I got another project car

    And lets be honest. Is there anyone who really does not NEED another project? I have 4. My 69 Fastback an 1 for each of my 3 kids. Five if you count the bass boat my wife inherited from her dad.

    Parents Killed by Son 1 mile from us

    The volume of guns in this country hasn't changed a lot over the past 30 years. Guns are no easier to access then they were in the 80's or 70's. I grew up with guns in the house. Had easy access to them. Never once thought about going to a school and shooting things up. Wasn't uncommon to see a rifle or shotgun in the back window of dads truck or a dozen others. What has changed is how children are raised. What we have is a mental health crisis in our youth. Blame it on violent video games, lack of parenting, single parents who are doing best they can, divorce, raising kids to be gender neutral, promoting and supporting 10 year old children to change genders, the list goes on. The existence of an AR15 isn't making these young men decide to go shoot up a school. You remove the AR15 and they will grab a double stack 9mm with ext mag and still get 18 rnds that is easier to conceal or even worse a 5 minute google search and with way less money then an AR cost and you can make homemade bombs. The arguing over guns from both sides is pointless. It will resolve nothing. And it's nothing more then a power struggle between republicans and democrats. Neither side care. If they did they would work together on the problem(mental health) and not the symptom(school shootings). Drunk drivers kill more people then guns taking out suicides. No one is chanting lets get rid of booze. Why, too much tax dollars generated from the sale of booze. Neither side wants to be responsible for losing that much money. I am PRO gun all the way. However, if I thought for 1 second, banning AR's would end all school shootings I would be all for it.
