I mean the mating surface. I will get it all cleaned up underneath and straight edge it left to right and front to back. I have MANY files that were donated to me from a government machinist. And we will leave it at that. I probably have 50 or more! All shapes and sizes. Little baby ones way smaller than a point file, all the way up to the big ones.
 I was VERY careful with the carb spray. The whole part of the test took about a minute and a half. After I was done, I touched the exhaust manifold, it was hot, but not smok'in hot. So I felt good about the danger factor being semi-low.

 Intake came off with no issues. Just lifted right out. Pictures later....

   Can anyone recomend a good well known intake gasket set. Danny

OK,,,, So, I got all set up with a brand new tall Carb/Choke cleaner and my super brite mini flashlight. Pushed the car out of the girlfriends garage. Fired it up and began squirting the intake right away before things got too hot. Started in the back, soaked the hell out of it both sides... No change. Jumped quick to the front, same soaking, both sides, no change. Then started on the sides of the intake and Bingo!!  Grin  Center of intake right side, car started to die. I used a half of a can on one side only, waving it thru those 4 to 6 inches section below the side of the carb non-stop and the engine died. Let it cool off, went to the center on the other side, same outcome. Saturated it just above the valve cover and the engine died. Must really help to pull the fuel in a negative way when it's right next to the side of the carb. Gotta pull the intake.
  Solution to ALL problems, not likely. But a heck of a start. I had tightened down those bolts, infact ALL intake bolts got tightened down a while back. And those center ones were the ones that were the loosist. The water just wouldn't quite do it, was to hard to tell. But the carb cleaner did the trick. Won't be today, gotta go finish install of tankless water heater. Maybe Saturday..

 Question; I am going to clean-up the intake lightly, and surely can't have it reskinned by Jerry M. or it will look super out of place for a survivor..... But does the intake need to be resufaced a couple thousandths? Will that change the angle of the "seating" area's. Or should I just scotchbrite pad/steel wool it? ... Danny

   Todd,
 Yes I have tried pulling the line going into the smog, as that is where I put the vacuum gauge for testing. Where do the #10 Screws go?  Picture?  With everything plugged, can I still have the belt connected for the visual, or do I need to devain my pump. Is it gonna fight to work and screw anything up?

  Kelley, I have had the carb off so many times that I can't imagine it being that. The issue is to consistent, the carb has been off 5 or 6 times, but the problem never changes. I have looked at the gasket each time and it seems to have a sealed ridge all the way around. Which would mean it has been sealed. I will replace the P/B booster hose, as it is original. I remember disconnecting the booster hose at the manifold and plugging the intake fitting, still no change. So don't think it is that Booster fitting. I have been watching videos on youtube about how to smoke test. I would imagine you could do some damage if ya pump the hell out of it. Also you don't wanna create a hole that WASN'T there before. If I do it, I will go easy. Going to shut down and completely disable the smog first. And see where that gets me. ... Danny

I would like to just pull all the smog, but I am trying to leave this in the full survivor mode if I can.... D

I won't take it the wrong way. I get what you are saying. I am not sure yet if I can't figure it out. It started out with 6 problems, and I am slowly pushing thru them. Today I did a water test to search for leaks. Probably going to have to do a smoke test. When the car doesn't run well at an idol, it's hard to distinguish an issue. Here is what I found. Bubbles coming OUT of the smog pump valve after spraying with water. Is this an issue?. I also noticed the part turns inside the outer part. Should it have movement up and down, meaning turning CW or CCW.... Danny

I can't remember the guys name at Holley. I will get a water bottle with 3 or 4 drops of dawn, shake it up and spray it around the intake. I couldn't find a leak the last time I looked. But I see what you are saying. I noticed the P/B hose is showing some wear. I guess I better eliminate that and R and R it. It must be the cause of previous issues. A lot of people talked about it, but I just couldn't find anything. I will try again... D
 Oh, and thank you to everyone....

The idol mixture screws screwed all the way in, make the car race. With both screws screwed all the way in, it should of course die... Right? I decided since it backfired and there is NO PV protection, I purchased the Holley #125-500 kit and installed them both today. Put it in and it still does it. I installed the new 4.5 PV's at the same time. The tech guy I called at Holley tech line said it has to be getting fuel some other way thru the metering block, and that he doesn't know what to do, and to send it back. I still can't diagnose any other problems now. I'm Fu*#ing pissed! .. D

No work on the car today. Plan change... I am on with my Father Friday night to Monday morning. Bummer, was really looking forward to getting some work completed and maybe even go for a ride. But 84 year old Pop's has Dementia and Alzheimer's and can't be left alone. 30 weekends a year GONE! I know it's the right thing to do. It wouldn't be so hard to do, if he would at least remember beating the living hell out of me growing up. But Mom died of Liver Cancer in '04, and he thinks he never touched us kids. It was the thing to do back then I guess. But I digress... Danny

What's with the two different 3's in the VIN? The one on the right looks like it was done with a handheld engraver. Sure looks pretty beat up overall for only 19K miles. I would have to see it right in front of me, AND with the POP in my hand.. Danny

Someone MAY want a challenging long term project... That's rich!... Too funny. D

Can't get the pic's much better. Never seen a baby "MO" stamp like that, and all crooked??? Guess I am about to learn something... Danny
