Just wanted to share my happiness with everyone. I finally got the cash together and decided to send my carb to an expert for the rebuild. Glad I did since he was able to tell me what was wrong and why it was not working properly.

First off he told me the Power valve was broken and that the choke stat was not working. So after $150.00 for the rebuild and a new choke stat, here it is. Sweet job he did, it looks new.



Here it is all installed, which I did all by myself, sorry that was a big deal to me. I've never done any of this type of engine work.:rockon



It just needed a little tiny adjust on the idle, but that was it. She is running like a mean arze Bronco again.:chili: :chili:

Now I think I'll be lookin at a steering pump upgrade or something. She has developed a hard spot in the steering. Like it is binding in one spot. Weird!:doh0715:

Good job, girl! :thumbup I know the feeling, I put a relay on Brutus for my MSD box and did it all by myself. Was pretty proud of myself and was excited I actually used something I learned from school. :toothless

Looks good Filly

Seems like money well spent ! Tune that idle mixture with a vacuum gauge before you change the idle speed, it may kill ywo birds with one stone. You can also recheck the dist timing settings too.

Get it so it leaps off the line again :toothless

Nice! It's always reassuring to hear/feel it running better than you remember, isn't it? Does this mean you make it to the PNW PJB M&G?
I'm just waiting for a date for the M&G so I can put it in my calendar.:chili: :twotu:
