I didnt get too much done otherwise. At a slow pace today, sorry oppo. I have an issue where nothing is supporting the back of my engine outside of some jack stands, so i cant get the trans in since i cant raise the car and i cant raise the car because the engine is on stands. Ultimately came to the conclusion that…
Something that I probably didnt need.
Sorry I’m posting these so late, kinja was giving me hell. Once again, its what I like/found interesting. Didn’t even stay for any races this year, it was just too unbearably hot this year. not much “new” this year either.
So i got my engine where it will idle, eyballed the timing and realized i still somehow have way more vaccuum ports than i do things to run on vacuum. Gotta cap those off.
Im gonna have to take some with my good camera and a tripod.
Kinja is giving me trouble uploading my vintage grand prix shots. Ill have to mess around with it.
Starting to look like a real car. Still gotta drain the rest of the gas tank and burp the rad.
Waiting at the dealer. Bored. Ama!
Somebody in my company daily drives this chebby
Can’t find a recycling center in my area. The trans am somehow had more than 5 gallons of gas left in the tank (for several years now) depite the fact that both the return lines were completely open. I don’t know any boyscouts either, that was my friend’s suggestion.
Holy crap. The machine shop put my dizzy on 180 degrees backwards. “professional”. Greasy bastards.
I have basically narrowed down my list of problems. I ran a lead directly from the positive on the(new) battery to the distributor. This had no noticeable effect on spark. I also confirmed that my carb has gas, as evidenced that the throttle shoots a spray of gas into the venturis.
Literally not figuratively.
Fuel air,spark. Fuel-yes, filled cab via the float tube. Air? Choke is closed properly. Spark?.... Yes? My spark is very weak oppo. I mean my wiring harness is original, and its a gm hei distributor. I cleaned up most of the terminals... Im not sure what to do. Any suggestions?
I didnt get as much time yesterday as i would have liked to work on it, but on the plus side the battery is enough to turn the engine over well while being jumped. Couple of loud pops from the exhaust, but i think its not getting gas, so im going to try filling the bowl manually.
Gm finally is ahead of the curve on one thing that is actually imprortant-value.
I can taste it. Bump for the daylight crowd.
So Iwas messing around with my trip computer, I wanted to see if my mpg was increasing with break in.
I finished one of the more difficult parts of what i have left. The bracket layout for the alternator /powersteering is kinda confusing and complicated.
Oppo, please learn me on car covers. The outdoor cover I have for the trans am is beginning to disintegrate, and after realizing that i dont believe a custom fit cover is really necessary, i have been looking at cheaper alternatives.
