Maintenance / slight hesitation
« on: December 07, 2009, 04:07:51 PM »
 after installing a new holley 4br 4479, i picked up a slight hesitation in throttle response it's always from a dead stop at 1st gear, i have a new fuel pump, new tank which i did not install but it looks fine when i had it out, also new fuel cap, changed fuel filter, new fuel line, the manifold is the old tarantula by holley, i'm thinking that the standard out of the box pump just isn't enough pressure or gpm to keep it happy,,,, any suggestions.

2. what should i be looking for when i open my muncie up, i seem to remember some part updates from a site out of mich, that rebuilds them, thanks.

ok update,, what a difference this makes,,, everything except pitman arm and upper and lower control arms , even adjustment to steering gear, which took some learning, i'm headed for the rear now, 
finished up with the rear a week or so ago,, eaton replacement coil and rear springs, bushings, brackets, i bolts, etc, i have to tell you i thought i screwed up at first, when i first set it down on the ground, i said oh no, did they send me the right springs, but after moving it and driving it,, there perfect, all of this answered the question,, are my springs tired, i'm happy i spent the time and money.

Maintenance / low vacuum at idle
« on: August 29, 2009, 06:04:21 PM »
Where do I start, after getting heads reworked on my 302ci 69 z and reinstalling I now have low vacuum at idle, this engine has modifications to it pistons 12/1, cam not sure but not stock by any means manifold, 750 dual pumper 4779-s, headers, HEI
I have checked for leaks and canít find any, but hereís the interesting part, I get a head brake pedal at idle, Iím checking the booster for leaks.
We used the valve adjustment  26/26 90 degrees before and after TDC , instead of the standard 30/30 at TDC, advance 33, could I have created a late valve lag to the point I have low vacuum, itís like 6 at idle , also I have very quick hesitation when I get on the throttle.

 after 39 years i have my hands on a 69 Z28 i have known since high school,, it needs work, so i have started the with the basics mechanicals, but have been blown away at the sheer number of parts suppliers, and have noticed a big difference in quality and cost, can any of the group point to a quality supplier, and so i'm off to do my homework here on the form read read read.
