I picked up a 59 elcamino awhile back. It has a 327 and a turbo 400. It ran like hell. Barely idled so I did the usual. Checked compression first. All 8 are in the 140 range. I checked for vac leaks and found a few. Intake was leaking for sure. It's a aluminum performer. So I pulled the intake replaced the gaskets and buttoned it back up. Ran a little better. Even got it idling with a lot of idle screw. Smelled like a lot of fuel. Wasn't right. But operable. The tranny was shot. So I parked it. It sat for 4 months. Finally picked up a 200r4 and got back on the project. I fired it up and wouldn't idle today. checked the intake (sprayed starter fluid where the intake and heads meet). And of course it's leaking again. Here is my question. Is the intake warped? The heads warped? Should I re tighten with new, better fastners? Do I takes warp to uselessness? Should I put and throw in another small block ? Your advice is appreciated.
