Oh-to answer your other question, The mentioned carbs come with necessary vacuum ports. But,,,isolate your problem 1st before throwing $$$ at it.

Good advice from NOYENKO also....if the timing is wandering, or "sticking" at full advance, your engine will  run erratic. Like he posted, very easy to remove from the equation. BTY, CHP was very fair on the price when I had my distributor gone through last year. Plus certification Grin


Heed Gary's advice on carb replacement or rebuild. Food for thought, while your carbs getting refurbished, whatever, you do not need a high dollar carb to feed that 302. Sounds like you are just out to cruise. Don't think any no lift 7800 shifts in your car's future. Check Summit, they carry refurbished Holleys and Edelbrocks. (street avenger ?) You would be surprised the overall performance a 600 Edelbrock does atop that engine...just to tie you over.

Also check out Crane Corvette if you are pretty set on another 780 ,look to have a good rep and descent prices, see what they say.

I cannot see putting out $700 for another carb, when you own the born with...new base plate, metering blocks, neoprene gaskets, blow out protection, needles and seats etc,,would come in half that...

Assuming no bind in throttle pedal or linkage. Return spring stiff and pulling plates (and keeping) them shut.

You had the carb apart. was it rebuilt ? Metering blocks, base plate, body checked for warping ? ( machinist straight edge)

Pull off the air cleaner, have your girlfriend start the car....you operate the throttle and see what it does. Watch the squirters ,at idle, and see if it's getting a signal to pull fuel. Should not at idle. Different circuit. Check your float level ( fuel should slightly weep out the sight holes) Consider upgrading to Holley Viton needle and seats if they have not been recently replaced. Hard to trouble shoot online,,,,,does the car seem to be running rich at idle, exhaust burning your eyes ?

Holley has a great website, take a look Smiley---steve

Racing aside, I see the benefits of integrating some modern technology into these older race bred engines. Drags are easy, make a pass ,back to the trailer to cool off. Street is far more demanding. Plus the benefits of soft hit rev limiters.....when Shut Down comes through the speakers, and your right foot gets a little heavy Grin

12.5:1 compression ?

If you plan to run a MSD checkout p/n MSD Programmable Digital 6AL-2 Ignition Boxes 6530. More to chose from, but appears a nice street/strip unit. Very popular with the bracket racers around here--can take some timing out at shift points ,launch etc.  based on track conditions. Very user friendly with laptop. One of my buddies chases points ,and installed the next unit up last season. Loves it. He has a 900+ HP BB which puts his Camaro in the high 8's ( and on the rear bumper once) His daughter runs the car around a mid 9 dial. If I was going a different path with my Z , A MSD set up would be my ignition system of choice for it.  Proven in our Gasser. Probably more a TC response, but thought I'd add.

plot keeps thickening......I'm out on this.

Good advise guys.

Shawn have you tried talking with the seller and resolving this,sometimes reminding him about word of mouth or as I like to call it (The Internet Justice League) can change someones attitude real fast. Lawyers get expensive and the process is long and drawn out.

And the Lawyers always win. Like I said ,different situation for me. And I had a contract, etc...also more than 4K ( is that what I'm gathering KERR paid?) involved ,28 years ago.

good advice vince      Just hate to see someone get so taken.

2 summers ago I sold a guy a 68 SS El Camino (needed restored, solid car, wrong big block) We went at it a little ,lasted a couple weeks but both walked away happy. A year later I ran into him, the car was done right. He showed me pictures and offered to let my wife and I take it out seeing as my Z is out for a while. Did not take him up on the offer ,but we ended up friends...this is how things should work.
99  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: any of you ever sued over a car you bought on: July 22, 2014, 12:00:15 PM
What did you pay for it ? Not similar ,but went through the court system against a body man on a 64 ss years ago. Now, I did have estimates, receipts and promissory notes.

I would definitely have a sit down with an attorney, and see what you have for a case....shy away from nonprofessional opinions here.

Keep in mind , I feel for you ,but you were sold garbage...and the seller knows this. There should be a price to somewhat ease your pain ,and deter him from trying to defend his wrong doings. Buyer beware...to a point. Talk to your lawyer. Consultation should be free.
