I started her up, let her warm up and then out of no where she died. She still starts up but she wont stay running. I just took apart the entire dash and put everything back together. I dont think I should have messed with anything that would control the idle. The reason i think i might have blown a gasket is bc when i went to inspect the motor, there was oil on the underside of the carb, oil on the intake manifold and there was white smoke coming out of the old tube in the side (dont know what its for) Im looking for any ideas why she wouldt stay idling and where should i buy my new gaskets? I want metal pref the ones with the blocker plate.
Like to add:
on my drag race track Car I did every possible trick in the book to keep my intake and carb as heat free as is possible and it worked real well
Super High performance was my only goal then
so I do understand the idea behind the concept and have applied it in the past — big time
I myself have no desire to alter the way my 64 —429 engine performs as I am completely happy with its stock performance for my needs
my feelings are the same for the stock braking system in my 64 that has never given me any reason to question if it will stop me fast enough when up tp spec ( never any brake fade )
what I like is surely not for everyone - so do enjoy the direction you choose and the results of you efforts
