Electrical & Instruments > Big Stereos and Alternator Death (2 replies - 3135 views)

Carburetors > Z-S Carbs - "Choke" and fuel/air adjustment (8 replies - 7725 views)

Apparently the adjustment is mostly the needle and not the jet.  I have too many cars with Z-S's to keep the various setups straight.  Thanks. Now have ...   06-01-2009 03:14 am

Carburetors > Z-S Carbs - "Choke" and fuel/air adjustment (8 replies - 7725 views)

Well, purely be accident, I discovered the main problem I was having (see Distributor falling out...) and it is definitely air/fuel mixture.  Apparently enough fuel ...   05-27-2009 06:11 am

Ignition > Distributor Falling Out... (8 replies - 7970 views)

Getting closer, but still not there.  Engine idles fairly well, although don't have a tach, but it's in the 1000-1250 range (by ear and feel).  ...   05-25-2009 05:12 am

Electrical & Instruments > Big Stereos and Alternator Death (2 replies - 3135 views)

Anyone have any experience with multiple amp stereo systems running off a "vintage" Delco alternator?  Once I figure out how to get it all into ...   05-22-2009 05:41 am

Ignition > Distributor Falling Out... (8 replies - 7970 views)

Ignition > Distributor Falling Out... (8 replies - 7970 views)

Thanks Dan.  I have the clamp removed and cleaned and after sticking my fingers in the "socket", I have a reasonably good starting point for ...   05-19-2009 11:03 pm

Ignition > Distributor Falling Out... (8 replies - 7970 views)

Is it just my perception, but is there not only nothing holding the distributor in other than Newton's 2nd Law, but there is, in fact, ...   05-18-2009 11:41 pm

Miscellaneous > Your classic car history (17 replies - 18600 views)

I didn't consider some of my early cars as classics...although I guess they would be now if they existed... 1978 Pontiac Bonneville - 403 ci w/automatic.  ...   05-13-2009 06:45 pm
