So, my 71 Mach 1 has been down for about 3 years now...but I am feeling better about it because after many different diagnosis, tests and theories, I now know that the carb is bad! There's no shame in it, the old carb is a 12 year old Autozone rebuild! I did put a new fuel pump on and tested it, so I know it is getting fuel. It will start and run if I hold the butterfly down on the carb so a new carb should do the trick! Maybe a nice chrome Edelbrock will make it run even better! The sad part is that it took me 3 years to finally figure it out! I attribute that to several things...I admiringly lost a little interest plus I am getting too old and too fat to work on cars! It sucks when you know what needs to be done but you sit there and think about "how in the hell am I going to get up off that creeper?" I did find renewed interest after I got the pump on but now my budget isn't well enough to place that order for a new carb! Maybe next Summer! I've been saying that for 3 years now...but this time I meant it!
