A quick update as this car has sat the last four years while I tried to figure out the Q-Jet Carburetor issues. Long story short; I sent it down South of the Border a second time to see if it could be fixed. Ray Klemm out of Ohio graciously ( he did not charge me for his time) offered to help me correct the long standing idle issues. Happy to report that he was successful and the car now has a proper idle circuit operation on the Q-Jet. I was very fortunate that the carb wasn’t severely damaged in the return trip back to Canada, as the box looked like it had been kicked all the way back home(((. There was some minor damage to the carb, but fortunately I was able to fix it. Now I can move forward on completing the car to my personal standards. It does need a new AC compressor clutch mechanism (engagement) replacement ( you can hear the whine of the bearings in the video). Also, some basic belt tightening, etc. I’m a very happy camper today, steadfast perseverance has paid off today.
