  1. Hello, Sorry for the lateness in this response .... very busy of late. Yes, it has been resolved and long story short it was 90% wheel balance and 10% Pittman arm. Keep in mind I have had the wheels balanced at least 3 times by reputable garages with modern equipment. I took the Mustang to a smaller garage owned by the mechanic who has been wrenching on cars for many years and does a fair amount of work on drag cars and muscle cars. He currently races a 41 Willy's dragster. He took my car for a test drive and immediately said, " pretty sure it is wheel or tire related, probabl
  2. PS, I guess the only way to rule out the fuel pump would be to remove and inspect or just replace ? Thanks
  3. The fuel cap is NOS, but I'll check the gasket. Filler hose and tank grommet are new. Vent line to carbon canister is newer. Fuel lines from tank to carb I'll have to look at next time I have the car up in the air, but no evidence of gas on the garage floor. I'll check the vent lines also, but again no sign of any leaks. Thanks for your input.
  4. Hello, Checked all the plugs, they all look identical, dry and Brn/Gry in color. RE gapped to .35. PCV valve is functioning and all vacumn lines look fine. Checked choke while restarting today. Temp was app. 70 degrees, when gas pushed to floor choke plate closed to app. a 3/8" opening then rapidly opened as enging warmed, seemed fine. YOur thoughts ? Thanks
  5. I have pulled two plugs and they both look fine and the same. Dry sort of a brn/gry. I'll check them all and regap to .32. Trying to find the correct torque specs to reinstall.
  6. Ok ....will do .... I'll post what I find. If they are burning correctly they shoudl be brown/tan ? If that is what I see I guess I can reinstall them. If the carb is running rich or have a bad plug would I see black carbon appearance ? What would you recommend for a gap on my plugs ? Stock motor with dual exhaust. Thanks
  7. Hello, Will have to pull a few spark plugs and see what they look like .... should I pull them all initially or maybe one from each side ? If I go out at anytime and smell the oil I smell a light odor of fuel in it. All the vacumn lines and PCV valve are correctly attached and operational. Thanks
  8. Hello, Have checked many of the above items. Car runs well and performs well. No running on when shut off and no pinging. Choke operates properly and opens all the way when warmed up. Did have the carb professionally rebuilt a few years ago to stock set up. My reason for this post is that when I drive it and shut it off there is an odor of gas not overwhelming but more than I think should be present same when idling. Also, I change the oil every Fall .... if I smell the dipstick there is a faint odor of gas. Am running a Pertronix system in distributor with a hotter coil. The
  9. Thanks very much for the info. ... appreciate it ! Steve
  10. This would fit but you would have huge port miss match. This is made to fit the larger ports in 4-V head. The air would exit the intake and run into a step because your heads have much smaller ports. Edelbrock does make the Performer 4-V to 2-V head with smaller ports. Here is link to the non EGR model they also have an EGR model. https://www.cjponyparts.com/351c-2v-edel-perf-intake-non-egr-for-a-4bblcarb/p/EDL2750/?msclkid=3b5a2d2d79741e48807473a992e85993&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Bing%20Dynamic%20Search&utm_term=%2Fp%2F&utm_content=Dynamic%20Search%20
  11. Hello, Thanks for all the comments. It is not perfect, but a well sorted out, as you said driver. Take care. steve
  12. https://newyork.craigslist.org/wch/cto/d/ashburn-1973-ford-mustang/7096259439.html This vehicle is located in Ashburn, VA Happy to answer any questions ... thanks Steve
  13. Hello, Would this fit on a 73 351 c H code engine that came from factory with 2barrel carb ? Looking to upgrade to a 4 barrel. Thanks Steve
  14. Hello, looking for four barrel carburetor and intake that would fit on a 73 351 Cleveland H code motor currently has two barrel carb. Either original Ford equipment or aftermarket is fine. Thanks
