  1. I've actually got holes in all 4 now. Was the only way to keep the transfer slot "boxed" and be able to idle properly. Prior to this, I had to use the main idle screw which opened up the transfer slot too much and rand so rich that there was no longer any adjustment at the metering block screws. This thread is really just about my timing jumping to 30 by connecting to manifold vacuum.
  2. So all of the carb adjustments I've done to date have been with all of the vacuum lines capped. I can get the car where I want it, idle at 850-900 in park, timing at 16*. All good and well. But if I hook up the dizzy to manifold vacuum, timing jumps up to close to 30, and the RMPS jump up to 1200. That's still in park at idle. I expected a slight increase in timing and rpms. but very slight. I don't even make that much vacuum. The dizzy is a Mallory Unilite, that I will be swapping out for the Duraspark soon anyway, but doesn't this sound like way too much advance at idle??
  3. Thanks for the compliments. Here's the link? What part of AZ are you in? I'm in Peoria. https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-x-100W-Class-D-Bluetooth-4-0-Audio-Amplifier-Board-TSA8498/221890226707?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Dd264ff9859ad4ab383294d3946f7d6e7%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D221890226707%26itm%3D221890226707%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Aa4a9a1e6-48ab-11eb-b228-1686229e35ef|parentrq%3Aa6f3bdaf1760a12b7cf6c355ffd67da4|iid%3A1
  4. Is that front sway bar oversized? If so, who makes that?
  5. I like that! Those lines aren't very secure at all without something like that.
  6. My car came with factory 8 Track, but the player was DOA. I wanted to keep the look, but integrate Bluetooth. So I bought a board on eBay that can easily power the 4 speakers. I hogged out the guts of the 8 track and installed the board. Now I have my 8 Track look (complete with Pink Floyd DSOM ;) Best album from 1973.), but Bluetooth enabled stereo. Here's some photos of my install, and a short video. The phone can't handle the bass, but it sounds very clean and loud with NO EXTERNAL AMP. This board is the only thing providing the sound. Music is through the phone. I have Android, but this would work with Apple too. 20201227_175314_1.mp4
  7. They changed the Buy It Now price to $89k. The action is ending in minutes. Top bid is $48,900.
  8. You should be able to find them fairly easily on here by using the search function. I'll warn you though, the originals are rough, and they have never really been improved upon, but they get the job done.
  9. Move that comma and make it $38,900. In all seriousness, they could probably get what, $70k for this? Clearly no explaining their number.
  10. Let me know when you've "adapted" and you want more. LOL
  11. I do remember those. Trust me, I'm totally jealous. I have to run two lines, pump to FPR, and then FPR to Carb. My fuel filter actually. It's hard plumbed to the carb already.
  12. That's good. My Delphi is good so far also. I'm in the same boat. I need to fab up a steel line from the pump to my regulator, and one from my regulator to my carb. I bought all of the bending and flaring tools. I just need a couple of scrap pieces to test my abilities on.
  13. I've been dealing with similar on my 300 page long "timing frustrations" thread. If you have a month of free time give it a read. LOL I have the same thing. 11hg vacuum. Smells rich. etc. 4150 platform carb. This ethanol fuel is not good for sure. It ate up my fuel pump pretty quickly. Just replaced that. I need to do all the hoses as well. I didn't see you mention your fuel pressure. If your timing was off and it was backfiring, you almost definitely blew a power valve. I idle at 1000 which drops to about 850 foot on the brake in drive. My Hg drops to 9. So a 4.5 power valve it is. If it's blown, or way too high for your vacuum reading it will bleed fuel into the idle circuit. My base timing is up to 18 with no pinging, and this has helped also. I'm getting there, but it's taken a long time with a lot of good suggestions and help from the guys on here.
  14. Get well soon!! Personally, I've business traveled this whole year and been fortunate enough to not come down with it yet. Probably been in 20 different cities, in 6 different states. That's a lot of meetings, flights, rental cars, hotel rooms, and all food coming from either a restaurant or Grubhub. I'm pretty convinced that the ONLY things that have kept me from getting COVID are Masks, More frequent hand washing, and boosting up on Vitamins C, D and Zinc. I could not agree more that you should definitely wear a mask. We had our monthly Cars and Coffee meet-up yesterday morning. I was one of VERY FEW people wearing a mask. Needless to say, I was pretty disappointed. Yes, we were outside which helps, but still with around 100 people there, and a lot of close contact long conversations, the risk was certainly there, and just by the numbers someone there most likely had it. It's a bummer to see how many people refuse to be slightly inconvenienced enough to wear one, and how many refuse to for political purposes also.
