    Hey, you guys are doing that special wave with your one finger exactly like the homecoming queen waved to me that time. She didn't wave to anybody else like that... just me.

    What are you talking about, you got a 4 speed in it! A 700 is a 4 speed.
    I still say you like me have the perfect face for radio. But miss Ashley looks like she’s having fun atleast.

    Lloyd and Ashley sound like they are having too much fun to talk to us. Can’t really blame them though. We ain’t that interesting.

    Right? Effer has a 41 page thread leading up to the first drive, then doesn’t say a thing!
     
  11. Yeah, I noticed that myself. HRP

  14. Well, the car rolled down the highway like a damn cloud. Rides and drives amazing. Handling? Yeah, that's a different story. But I couldn't be happier with the ride and drive. Just go in a straight line lol... it was lean, stumble of idle, bog when you stood on it, etc.... I've messed with it quite a bit. Set the timing to 35 total, no vacuum advance hooked up. Switched the primary jets to 72's, put a 35 discharge nozzle on the squirter. Put a yellow spring in the vacuum secondary pod. It runs pretty damn good. Still not perfect, but I'll put a vacuum gauge on it tmrw and see where I am on the power valve, it's got a 6.5 in it. I bought me a scoop in the swap meet :D transmission won't shift into 4th gear, I'm running it as a 3 speed. It cranks 3000 at 70mph. 12.75 mpg at the moment, we'll see what it gets on the trip home with the 72 jets. Overall I couldn't be more tickled, last tagged in 1973, now it's back on the road and raising hell!!!

    Wouldn't fret the stumble till after you get home, Lloyd. May need a 50 cc pumper diaphragm to keep it from stumbling w/ the tunnel ram. Have to tune it richer than a standard hi-rise intake, have lots more plenum volume. Power valve is probably okay. 3K @ 70 mph ain't bad, better than my 60 mph.

    Ya'll have fun w/ it. I was wrenching on my van on my honeymoon. :eek::D

    I gotta say, it takes some pretty big balls to barely finish a ride, then jump in it for an outta town show. I did that a couple times in my younger days...with varying results:mad:.
    Glad it all worked out well for you and Ash'.
    Congrats on a job well done buddy.:)

  23. Man I look forward to hanging out with you! I owe you so much for all of the help you've given me. You're a good man buddy. I pulled out a bottle of Woodford tonight and partied with the Bartone nitro funny car team and the Horan nitro funny car team. Me and Mrs Ashley had a blast! We always have a blast at this event though, enloe, sidewayzz69, hemi Dave, pprather, all have hung out with us. Still another day to go, but we're already excited about next year. Car is running pretty damn good, took the clutch guy from Horan's team for a ride, he was impressed. All in all, another great event. Hope to see all of you here sooner or later. :D
