Yeah I know right where that is, I used to work at Camp Perry in the summers so I spent a lot of time in that area. I would be more than happy to stop by and help you out. I might not be available on the weekend till after the first of the year, but my evenings are open. Let me know.

I don't think I have everything quite right.Got choke stove hooked up but took electric choke off.Sometimes it seems to use to much gas.Do you think I need to hook up the electric choke back up?I think I need dist. moved and carb adjusted.I just don't know what I'm doing

Got stock intake and stock 2 barrel.Sometimes this engine just dumps the gas.Not to often but alot when it does.
This engine will be 1 year old in july.
I don't have any vacumn hooked up just what I need.
This is a crate engine from Jaspers.
Runs pretty good just think I need to get all the bugs
Myself I'm not much of a mechanic.
Would like any help I could get.
Thanks for getting back with me.

What do you mean by dumps the gas, do you mean using gas or actual spillage. You can get rebuild kits for those carbs for pretty cheap but swapping in a dual plane manifold and a aftermarket carb really makes them come alive. I run a edelbrock 600 cfm 4bbl w/elec. choke and edelbrock performer manifold on my 400 and also have no smog stuff hooked up it has all been eliminated. I get about 9-10 mpg with 4.10 gears and 36" tires. But am thinking about swapping to a howell efi kit. Maybe think about rebuilding your carb and make sure you dont have any vacuum leaks cause those can give you trouble too.

I mean uses gas only hasdone it twice in the last 4 months.I.m getting just under 12 mpg highway.Maybe I ought to just leave it alone.It's running good just thought their might be a reason it dumps gas like that.Could it be the choke sticking every once in awhile?

Yes it could definately be that you might need a new choke stat for it you should go to the site LMCtruck.com they have everything for the trucks.
