Looks good, Matthew.

Date, FilmCarp? Aren't you married to it by now?

As for me, I spent the day in the passenger's door on Rusty. Or, my arms did and have the scars to prove it. Got the old...

More likely it is the brake cleaner I use to get the parts ready for powder-coating. Just bought another case of it yesterday. As for the Holley jets, my thinking was that while the power valves,...

Idle seems to naturally come in around 12.5:1. But that's what it winds up being after I find peak speed with the mix screws, not what I adjust to.

Great minds and all that. I have a Holley #44 jet, but discovered that they are 1/4-32. So I have that tap in my wish list at Amazon and just haven't pushed the button on it.

And one of the...

Many EGR valves leak, so just plugging or capping it won't fix that and pulling it and placing a block off plate on the opening is the only way to fix that. You should be able to figure out if it is...

CB - I'd rep you if I could. I just got through looking at all the diagnostic charts in the shop manual and in many cases they say the linkage may be improperly adjusted. So, that's a must.

Yes, it sounds like a plan. Edelbrock still makes the same 6 pack intake, so I just have to round up the carbs. And the S10 combo would make the planning much easier. Thanks, guys.

As for the...

True. My add-on gauge has AFR and vacuum showing, and that combo proved to me the other day that I had a problem as the AFR was rich. Sure enough, the gas had gelled in the carb and some passages...

Yes, lots of research is required. On the one hand, buying an S10 for $3000 and installing the 50's body sounds cheap. But that S10 is going to have many miles on it and may well be ready to have...

Ahh! I sit corrected. Yes, I was remembering the Buick engine, and when I remembered "staggered crank" on the Chevy I thought of the odd firing of the Buick. Glad you corrected me. Maybe the S10...

I agree on the sound. As I've said, one of my favorite parts of the movie Cars is when Doc backs down coming to the stop sign. That Hudson six with split manifolds and glass packs sounds sweet.

So, the venturii are replaceable? Interesting. But keeping 3 carbs synch'd must have been fun, although we did it all the time on bikes. My Honda 750 K1 had 4 and when I built a mercury manometer to...

You don't want to plug anything. This is just a test to see how much leakage you have and where it goes. And 12.5% isn't bad. But, you need to address the fact that you are sending way too much air...
