Re: Pumping Brakes = Stall?

There are two ways that the brakes are connected with the running of the engine. The first way is by the vacuum hose. Pumping the brakes "uses up" vacuum, and some air gets sucked out of the booster and into the intake manifold. If this tiny amount of air did anythng at all, it would sligh...

Re: impossible timing!

This stuff kind of makes my brain hurt... but I think you should have turned the rotor one tooth CCW instead of CW when trying to get the adjustment range below 15 deg ??? I don't know what the standard timing is for a 4AC, but I would guess that 15 BTDC at idle is pretty close. Cheers... jondee86

Re: headers are burning my feet

If the problem is caused by heat radiating from the exhaust tubing and heating the floor, the best solution is to prevent radiant heat reaching the floor.

Re: Te72 Shifter Shaking

I would be surprised if the shifter shaking at constant speed is caused by bad engine or transmission mounts. Twisting of the engine and transmission is more likely to be caused by uneven power impulses from the engine. Maybe you have one cylinder down on power from a blocked injector, bad spark lea...

Re: T3 Tall Shift Kit

Re: starting issue

The two tubes pointing down are for the water hoses. The two tubes pointing out without caps are for the P/S. The one with the cap is for the A/C idle-up (I think ?). The water tubes don´t need to be capped, but all other tubes must be capped. Use a piece of hose (or whateva) to see if you can easil...

Re: starting issue

You need to look underneath the throttle body and see if the thermostatic idle-up valve is still there (part inside the red circle). Often, if the valve does not work properly, instead of fixing the valve, it will be removed, and a blank plate fixed in its place. Then you will get the cold starting ...
