Re: Looking for some advice - blowing out fuel lines

When he said he had stainless steel fuel lines, I assumed he had already replaced it, since stainless steel fuel lines were never installed in Corvettes by the factory. But that brings up a good point. If the fuel lines are the old lines and the car had gas sitting in it since 1995, replacing the ru...

Actually, testing for fuel in the carburetor can be done much easier that that. Assuming you have fresh gas, crank the engine for about 5-6 seconds. Remove the air cleaner. While looking down into the carburetor, pump the throttle a few times. If you see fuel squirting into the carburetor venturies ...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

I made some tuning adjustments to the fuel injection today and took it out for a long drive, some in town, some 45 mph roads and lots of 65 mph roads. The adjustment I made to have the RPMs drop to idle speed faster when I let off the gas worked a little, but still needs to drop a little quicker. Al...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

The next day I fired it up and took it for a longer ride to start the self learning process. The more you drive it, the more it learns about how the engine responds to changing conditi...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Here is the bottom of the gas tank installed. You can see where I used the peel and stick roofing material. I not only put it on the front and rear cross members, I coated the tank as well. You can see in the photos the front cross member took some punishment, but I can clean it up easy enough and r...
