The Car Runs

I got the garage door fixed and took the car out for it's first run and it ran pretty good. It has a bit of a stumble and I think it's maybe too loud but it seems to be running pretty strong. I'm not sure where the temp should be sitting as I'm using the original gauge that is in the dash but it may be a bit too warm, I'll have to build a shroud over the winter. Anyways, I've got it out and running and that was my goal for the summer so now I can start working on the interior. Once again thanks to all that helped me through this engine and tranny swap, I really apprecite all the advice..

Finally !!!

I've been talking to a local mechanic for the past week or so and he came over today and said that he was thinking that it was the transmission. He asked me if I had taken it apart and I said that I but a shift kit in it. His suspicion was that I missed putting the shiftrer arm in properly when I put the valve body back in and so we took the pan off and as we lowered the valve body, he could see that something was wrong and it has been stuck in low gear all the time. As well ,it was a little low on fluid so it wasn't working as it should but it was working enough to hold the engine back. Then somehow I must have revved it more or did something for it to actually turn the wheels and hit the garage door. So I'm off to get a pan gasket tomorrow and I am feeling confident that it's all good to go now. The only thing is now I can't get it out of the garage because I haven't got my new door on yet .....Thanks to everyone here who offered advise and suggestions, I really appreciate them all ...

Are you Suggesting

that I might be pulling too much from the PCV valve by having it in the front port of the carb ? I just thought that it should got to that port.

emwolb using a baffled/filtered vent on one valve cover and using a pcv in the opposite cover works great. you can use a rubber hose from the pcv to the carb and it'll vacuum the oil mist out of the motor. look at a stock motor and how they're plumbed. the designers did a pretty good job of engineering the motors and pcv system. follow their example and you'll be just fine. notice though that they don't feed the pcv line into the high vacuum port on your carb, but use a filter in the air filter housing. it's a low vacuum that your air filter housing uses to vent the pcv system.

Early Pic

That was a picture I took last winter, I didn't use those headers but went to a set of Hedman blockhuggers and ran them into a set of dual 2 1/2 " exhaust pipes with Thrush mufflers so I am pretty sure that the exhaust is flowing freely, As a matter of fact I know it is as I felt the exhaust coming out the tail pipes a while ago. I appreciate the fact that you took the time to look at that and offer that suggestion ..Thanks

123pugsy I posted earlier about restricted exhaust as I have experienced the"holding back" feeling from this issue.

I have attached a pic of your header. Is this normal? Things look a little strange to me but maybe I'm mistaken.

Typically

I am standing in front of the car working the throttle at the carb, for some reason I got in it this time so I am lucky in that regard. I am hoping I can install the new door in lieu of paying my deductible . Car still isn't running right, is it possible that the torque convertor is holding the rpms back somehow??

67Mustang Al. Glad you were not standing between it and the door. You can buy new doors.

I replaced the gauge and it's running around 6 psi. Just to be sure, I replaced the fuel pump but the results are the same. I'm kinda wondering if somehow the transmission is holding it back but for now, I have bigger problems. I wanted to make sure that the transmission was in park so I disconnected the linkage at the tranny and put it in park, I think it has been in neutral up until now. Anyways, I was revving the engine when the son of a ***** dropped into gear, squealed the tires and drove through my garage door, well not right through it but it pushed it out 2 feet. Now I have an insurance claim on top of the cost of the carb ( which doesn't look like it was the culprit) I'm beginning to hate this car ! You can see the damage to the door in my avatar. At least the car didn't get damaged.

Verify the fuel pressure w/another gauge- if it's 9.5 psi, that is too high.

If it was me, I'd set up the timing curve first then tune the carb.

The Edelbrock Owner’s Manual covering Performer and Thunder series carbs is here. With the info from it and from Edelbrock Performer Series Carburetor- Complete Guide to Set-Up, Tuning, and Performance Jetting, you can go about adjusting it for better performance.

Carb

The carb is an 650 Edelbrock Thunder. I am wondering if I need to change the jets and metering rods. I was going to buy a new carb but can't really afford to at this point.

Staightned it out and put it back in and it appears to be working so I fired up the engine and it ran great....for about 5 seconds , then it loaded up again and backfired, something it has never done before. I think I'm getting too much fuel but I'm not sure why. It will idle all day long but bogs and won't rev when I step on the gas..
Just curious- what carb?

Any chance of a restricted exhaust?
