Nice car. Those big bumpers have got to go.
Can't wait to see your progress.
No. An 8.8" is an 8.8". It's a C-clip axle rearend like the older GMs.
If you drive on the street, don't run a spool.
I agree, unless you have the Duraspark-II ignition with the blue gromet. It has a start retard feature.
That said, anything over 20 (initial)...
I run 10w-30. The reason I suggested 10w-40 is because it's got close to 100,000 miles and he's in a hot climate (Georgia). For today's engines,...
I set mine for 12 initial, and I have 26 in the centrifugal, which totals 38. I never messed with the vacuum advance, but I was told it's about 10...
I run 37-38 total. I really wouldn't worry about the vacuum advance unless you're getting detonation.
Any brand motor oil of the correct viscosity is just fine. I use Motorcraft FL1-A filters for the V-8.
Cool project. Those bumpers have got to go.
That's good news. It definitely sounded like a spark issue. Also looked way retarded in the picture (but that's no real proof of anything). What...
I would re-stab the distributor so that the vacuum can is pointing more toward the center of the car. As it is, there is no room to back off the...
I would just start over connecting the ignition wires. Starting with terminal 1 and procede counter-clockwise.
Check to see if it's getting spark.
Asking for a friend. Does the 351w use the same mechanical fuel pump as the 302?
Either type spacer will run good.
The 4-hole may improve low RPM throttle response and improve idle slightly.
I agree on a phenolic or composite...
I can't see anything.
That's gonna be a night and day difference from the inline 6 that was in there.
Another thing I like to do is while using a radiator cap with a vent lever, put a drain pan under the hose that runs down. Have the vent lever...
