It's fixed. It apparently was the condenser all along!! I have been doing some fine tuning to the carb but it runs great with the 4bbl. Heres my...
Here's a side shot[ATTACH]
The new carb also doesn't seem to have made a difference. I'm kind of at a loss of what to do.
I'll add some pics tomorrow. I still need a heater and to fix my kick down linkage for the new carb as well as finishing up the interior.
I'm still working on the tuning. I think I might have a big vacuum leak that's not helping.
New carb and intake [ATTACH]
As well as snow tires and rims [ATTACH]
Thanks Bob. I have a bunch of quadrajets would it be worth while to rebuild one and switch the manifold rather than just get another 2bbl?...
Here's a picture of all the club members working on my car[ATTACH] [ATTACH]
A big thanks to Bob(oldcars.acadia) and everyone else from the car club who came over Saturday and helped me with my car. It's still not...
Thanks! I'll probably be fixing my car Sunday as the carb is still giving me trouble.:mad::mad:
Well I got my license but am still trying to get the carb tuned better. It didn't help that my fuel filter broke and let a bunch of crap into the...
Well I think that the brake booster may be bad causing a vacuum leak. I did read into the valve adjustment and there's nothing about it in my...
I have hydraulic lifters so they adjust themselves right?
Thanks I'm definitely going to be driving it a lot.
How do these plugs look as in lean vs rich? I'm doing some tuning to the carb. It has a slight backfire (as in burble) when you let off from any...
I thought I was but it looks like I won't be able to make it because of the rain.:(
Thanks Marcia!! Will you be at the Belfast cruise in this Friday?
Thanks! I'd love to come check out your shop!!
I'm already planning some modifications and improvements:)
Thank you! I'm...

IT PASSED!!!! I hooked up the power...
I had to remove the seat to drill holes for the seat belts so I decided that I might as well paint the floor while I'm at it.[ATTACH][ATTACH]
I'm loving the low budget take to this build. I can't wait for some video of the banger running:)
I talked to Mark about tires at the last meeting he said he had a couple:). I actually have some replacement rockers that came with the car that...
It doesn't look like anythings happened but I've finished the floors, finally got it running better and feeding out of the gas tank. Also...
Thanks for this info. I'll have to call and see what they say. I'm actually considering doing my own electric wiper conversion.
Looking great!! That frame looks like its in really good shape.
The s10 leaf spring bushing gave me even more trouble than the bleeder screw. It even broke the air chisel!!!
[ATTACH]instead of buying shackles I made some and saved $80
My almost completed attempt at a removable [ATTACH]transmission cover.
I should have gotten the whole setup from the Sonoma but I didn't know it had a rear sway bar until I got the rear end and I didn't...
I have the bar itself but not the pivot arm pieces that attach to the ends.
Yes it bolts right in except for the sway bar. I could make mounts for the sway bar but I think I'll just throw it up on Ebay.
