how do you know what motor you have by numbers and which numbers are relavant ?
We are the third owners and have had this wonderful GMC for 17 years. It has always been garaged and is in excellent condition. Solid walnut cabinets, roof air conditioning and 6kw Onan generator. Cared for as a family member. Always garaged and continuously maintained and upgraded, it is in excellent condition.
This tool works, but I found it a bit clumsy. It is two bits in one. A slot bit, which fits the recessed Quadrajet idle mixture screws. the other end is an open hex socket for the other type of mixture screw.
All pullers must be in the staging area when their class starts 2. A competitor will have a maximum of three 3 minutes to report to the starting line after the sled is ready 3. All pulls must start with a tight chain 4. All pulls must start with the sled and pulling vehicle inside the boundary lines 5. All pulling vehicles will come into the competition area under their own power. The test puller will have the option of accepting the pull or coming back 6th spot from when sled is set.

Please follow the post completely for details of the process. Throttle response is not delayed, I expected it to have a delay like most modern fuel injection cars do. Throttle response is as instant as a carburetor.
After years of selling Pontiac parts we have finally put up for sale our collection of distributors listed by application and date code. Distributors that are nothing special are sold at a discounted price and will work fine for most applications while our rare and very hard to find distributors are priced to reflect their true collector value.
The rebuild never seems to last and some of the areas like leaking around linkage and dry gaskets are often not fixable. They are too complicated, too hard to adjust, and in a difficult place to work on. I have a new engine, is the old carb still correct for the heavy breather? With a closed loop control, this should be adjusted automatically. I think basically, I hate carburetors. These are the parts to be added. Need to get under the wheel wells and do some work so it is suggested to raise the front of the coach.
I feel safer with it up on blocks and this was enough height. This picture shows that it is necessary to put a block or stand under the rear of the GMC when ever you are under the rear. There is nothing lower than a GMC if an air line or bag breaks. Time to get rid of some of this clutter. Ready to remove carb, christmas tree, and gas pump.
Be sure to save the illustrations separately. The opinions expressed here are my experiences, and your experiences may vary. I don’t put myself forward as the world’s leading expert on Holleys, but I do have some helpful ideas. In some cases, I may not be able to answer specific questions, but I’ll do my best.

Three different types of numbering systems are found on Carter produced carburetors. Thus in the example C5VF-A, the carburetor would have been the first application for Lincoln in the year It is extremely doubtful that any of the single, double, or early triple digit tags will appear; as they were produced before and were constructed of red cardboard. The metal tag appeared about with tag numbers of about s. The 4 digit tag appeared in , and was continued on until the end.

That individuality combined with corporate policies limiting maximum displacement for different body styles to produce a multitude of different engines of very similar capacities and outputs. By , for instance, Buick, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac each offered a cu. While Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, and Buick each had distinct small-block and big-block V8 engine lines, Pontiac really had only one.
It had certain features in common with the contemporary small-block Chevy, such as rocker arms pivoting on studded ball joints rather than rocker shafts a feature that had actually been developed by Pontiac engineers and shared with Chevrolet , but it had some significant internal differences. It was also somewhat bigger and heavier than the Chevrolet engine, with greater growth potential.
Grow the Strato-Streak did — from cubic inches 4, cc in to cu. Over the years, it was offered in a bewildering number of states of tune.

The 2-speed Jetaway trans used behind the V-8 [not the L6] in the models also utilized a switch pitch torque converter. For a transmission built during these three years, you can identify the transmission as having the switch pitch parts by the electrical connector on the side of the trans case. A run-of-the-mill TH will have a single spade terminal protruding from the case to activate the kickdown solenoid valve. A switch pitch aka variable vane trans will have two terminals one for kickdown, one for vane angle.
The TCS is wired to a pressure switch connected to the accumulator piston area, that allows full vacuum to the distributor only when the car is in third gear when the engine is cold. There probably is two wires coming from the thermostatic vacuum switch on the front of the manifold.

The s had a power boost for the 5. The most radical changes were made in the name of safety, Dodge switched to lower-force driver and passenger airbags the passenger one could be deactivated , changed its driver controls and audio systems, and added adjustable seat-belt loops. The next part was harder: To avoid crashes in the first place, they went to bigger brakes, a better suspension, and stronger, stiffer body.
The changes to the front of the van also improved walk-through access and updated the styling. Customers responded favorably to all the changes, and sales went up. In the s, V8 gas mileage went up. Dodge bragged about double-sealed front doors with laser-welded inner panels and door beams for side impact protection. Dodge noted a wishbone-type independent front suspension.
Vans got standard six-speaker audio systems. Many Rams were used for wheelchair-dependent people; the roof could be raised and a wheelchair lift added, with custom seating.
It used to be thought that adding EFI to a classic, carbureted vehicle, required a degree in rocket science. But now, many manufacturers have jumped head-first into the realm of developing an EFI system that does not require a laptop — or the aforementioned degree. The Quadrajet has been on the Cheyenne since it left the factory.
After 30 years and 75, miles, my original L engine was still very dependable and running solid. However, after installing my TKO 5 speed kit, I decided I wanted some extra horses up front.

In trying to get the headlight door motors, I ended up taking out the whole damn front end – grill, bumper, etc. There was just no easy way to get to the door motors. I probably removed 50 bolts out of the front of the thing. Eventually I had half the car in the back of the truck just to get a couple pieces of trim and the headlight door motors, but there’s nothing wrong with a few spare parts.
I have heard since then that if you remove the horn it’s easy to pull the motors right out the top, though the shop manual says you can pull them out the bottom, which is impossible.
FiTech Go EFI 4 installed in a (to conversion) Trans Am was a success. Please follow the post completely for details of the process.
In a squarebore, the bores are closer to the same size, though, in some squarebore carbs, like cfm Holleys, the primaries may be noticeably smaller than the secondaries. However, even then the bores share the same centerline. Many aftermarket intakes, such as mine, and the Edelbrock Performer and RPM, etc, are “dual pattern” intakes the area where the carb bolts on looks like a butterfly.
Either a squarebore OR spreadbore can be physically be mounted on them with no adaptors. Carter Thermoquads, Rochester Quadrajets, and Holley ‘s, ‘s, and ‘s are spreadbores. If the intakes are true squarebore intakes four individual holes or true spreadbore intakes again, four individual holes, though of different size , you cannot really bolt a squarebore carb on a spreadbore intake and vise versa.
In the case of putting the squarebore on the spreadbore intake, the primary bores of a spreadbore, though small, are spread further out than the primaries of a squarebore. The squarebore primaries of the carb would not line up well with the holes in the manifold. Also, most spreadbore primaries are smaller than most squarebore primaries, so even if they did line up, the manifold would present a sudden, constriction.
