Get the 32/36 on order now, it’s nearly a must have item for an Ope owner, especially in the beginning.Also my grandpa and I tried to start it and it wouldn't start. My grandpa thinks the carb is gummed up. WE had to spray gas in the carb to get it to run. If we can't get the carb working good, we have been thinking about getting a weber 32/36 because I have heard they work good and they increase performance. Should I get this carb or stick with the stock solex?
I don't know where the idea that calipers should not be split came from. When I was working in a brake/alignment shop we rebuilt calipers every day and never had a problem.
Forgive me, I forgot that you have the automatic yes I was referring to the manual 4 speed transmission.Yes we will keep on driving it! It is just so much fun! My grandpa has a vacuum gauge and he was getting around 16. We will probably mess around will the distributor and see what is wrong with it. I think the "fuel filter" is actually the electric fuel pump that we installed. We bolted it up there so it should stay.
Also my trans is an automatic is yours? Or is the oil thing only on the manuals?
A worn 69’ perhaps, the timing chain stretch (late valve timing) can affect this as one example. the pistons in that engine were originally flat top pistons that raised both, the vacuum readings (a little) and the compression, I can’t remember if you did a cranking compression test or not but 150 plus or minus less than 10% would be a good number and 17-18” on the vacuum at idle. So long as the needle is steady on your vacuum gauge I wouldn’t worry at all.But is it good for a 1969?
