stick some new plugs in it, if it was dumping fuel a low compression 460 can
foul the plugs quick....

After I rebuilt my carburetor I noticed in the tuning instructions a couple
of points specifically for american motors.  My question: Is the Motorcraft
2100-D two-barrel a ford design and if not what is it? Over a conversation
with a friend over which is better holley or edelbrock I had speculated that
my Carb might be a holley design for the lack of metering rods. If someone
can tell me or at least tell me where to look I will be very thankful.

Dustin

Sorry, I'm on several lists and may have confused this thread with another.
This is a 460, just rebuilt and won't idle.  What kind of cam did you put in
it, duration, lobe separation, lift etc...??  Even when a lot of things are
wrong it should idle like a swiss watch (and I don't mean tic, tic, tic, tic
:-)).

What plug wires are you using and with what plugs?  Those stupid carbon
wires are worthless because they are so easily damaged and soak up so much
of your system's energy.  All you need to do is stretch one a little bit and
you have a miss.  Metal, coil choke wires are the best (Heli-wound).  More
durable and put all the power to the plug.

This really sounds like the push rods were not sized after the head work was
done to ensure proper preload.  You may have some valves not sealing or it
could be a shoddy job of installing the intake manifold or carb or any
number of other components.  If you still have an EGR it may be stuck open
causing an over lean mixture and if the plugs were once loaded up you should
pull them and clean them to make sure.  I just ran into that, spent several
days trying every trick I could think of to start what should have been just
a flooded engine but it had been flooded many times before and had carbon
tags on the electrodes shorting them.  No amount of cranking or even firing
them would clean that off.  That one caught me and tripped me up, wasted a
lot of time out in the cold barn......but I learn from my mistakes :-)

Subject: vibration in front wheel


   On my 350 have a interment vibration, it feels like it is the right
front it only happens above 65 or 70 it varies a little depending on the
smoothness of the pavement, but happens none the less, I can feel it in
the steering wheel in will be a 2 or 3 second shutter then stop for 4 or
5 sec pause and then again.  I pulled the right front off last night and
nothing was loose or seemed worn.  The only thing that needs work is the
radius arm bushings, they are a little worn.  Any ideas????  TIA
