Is there any real good way to my '78 run better in the winter? I gotta sit and babysit it for 30 minutes until it hits 180. Any Idea's?
did you happen to see where he lives? it could be 30 below 0 where he is. How cold does SC get now a days?it should not take 30 minutes to come up to temp.
mine takes about 5 if i am driving it and 10 if it is at idle.
i wouls say if it takes that long a new t-stat would help.
if it wont idle then you have choke problames.
1st you have to fix the choke issue. Like Jopes said put it back to the electric choke. There is nothing wrong with that setup.When I first start it up, I gotta pump the gas pedal when she starts to snub out...
yeah!repair the choke so it is a auto choke. with it being a manual choke your unable to control it the correct way the engine needs for running
