Yes great video Jason! Thanks for that! I now fully understand how it works. I never knew what that thing was in the first place and how it operated. It's one of those parts that I am sure most of us that own these cars simply don't even think twice about on what it's supposed to do or how it functions.

This definitely should be in the help section on the forum to let everyone know before you tune the carb, it's a MUST, to MAKE SURE the throttle check isn't keeping throttle plates open.

Thanks Tony. I meant to point out the adjustment screw.. I'm a bit rusty on the videos! LOL People screw it out as an idle control ... not knowing or otherwise! I've done it myself on marginally running parts cars to keep them running instead of fine tuning and dialing in the carb when all I needed to do was see that the engine runs, move the car around, or just tickle myself silly with the pleasures of hearing a 390 or 429 run!

Nice explanation , of a part that is seldom ,if at all seen on other cars ,so that helps a lot to understand its purpose

64 Power Servo vacuum leak

Posted by Kent Prows on June 27, 2020 at 4:02pm 0 Comments

I finally got around to fixing a leak in my heater core.  I decided to check to see if there were any other obvious issues while I had everything torn apart.  When I put a vacuum directly (bypassing the transducer) to the power servo it gets to about 10" and then slowly leaks back to zero.  The fan will not go to full and the mode door will not open completely.  I have read a couple of other posts that said they repaired the power servo leaks.  How?  Does anyone have one to sell?  I just…
