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!!
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
