Re: Timing pulley guide pin???

when you say "guide pin" do you mean the pin that the tension pulley pivots on the front of the block? a machine shop can make one, if you can find the correct size rod you can make one yourself as well. that shop had no business working on a car they clearly was not familiar with. what a lot of cr...

Timing pulley guide pin???

So my radiator went out that was one of the things the previous owner said the shop replaced as well as the timing belt. The problem is that this "shop" is also responsible for welding my crank pulley on, having the distributor timing off by a tooth, and hooking up the distributor vacuum lines wrong...

Re: Throttle sticking

I know which screw you’re talking about, my one was unscrewed far enough that it wasn’t in contact with the other side at all so I don’t know if that was it or not That adjusting screw should not make contact when at a normal idle, but only comes in contact right after you release the throttle afte...

Re: Throttle sticking

You need to check something else: there is a small diaphragm on the front side (facing the front of the car) of the carb that is there to prevent the throttle from slamming shut (to reduce a spike in emissions). It has a linkage to the throttle shaft with a screw adjustment. It is a simple adjustme...

Re: Throttle sticking

Okay so I oiled all the moving parts and then coated them with lithium grease, the movement was a bit gritty initially and now it’s smooth I also sprayed down the whole carb with carb cleaner It returns to idle now, but if I lightly step on the gas it will still rev up to 1500-2000rpm and hang there...

Throttle sticking

Recently my engine has been sticking at 1500rpm and I need to rev it to get it back to idle

Is that a symptom of the choke sticking closed? I was thinking I need to grease all the fittings again

Re: The mother load of new and used parts. MUST LOOK. 6X6

Re: Gear ratio problem

Both of my rears have 37 stamped on their ring gear so I'm assuming that means they are 3.73 My front is already 4.10 so I just need to change out the rear to a 4.10, which is what I was planning on doing yesterday until I pulled the old one out and found it was already a 3.73 My reverse light, 4wd,...

Re: Performance carb vs stock

32/36 simply means it's a 32mm primary venture and 36mm secondary Usually it correlates with how much air it can flow through it, so I was just wondering if the stock one has similar diameters in which case you wouldn't see much performance gain theoretically (since they would pull the same amount o...

Re: Performance carb vs stock

Yeah I can't tell if mine is running good or not, it is pretty worn and has some oily spots on it from seals starting to leak. On cold starts it has a misfire and I have to rev the engine a few times to correct it.

Is the stock carb also a 32/36? I couldn't find any info on it

Gear ratio problem

My door badge says my car was manufactured April of 1986. The title says it is a 1986 model From my understanding, it should have the 4.10 gear ratio. But I just finished pulling the rear axle and it has 11 pinion teeth and 41 ring teeth. I took off the cover from the blown up front end and counted ...
