"How many miles on the points and your last full tune up ?
Your timing was retarded if at 0-2 which is what happens as point wear out
3 degrees retarded from the stock 5 degrees is a lot of negative timing change
"Awesome!! Yeah, there was no spacer, so I didn’t know.
Tony any Ginny 429, I’m not quite sure why you’d think there was a timing issue. The car ran good before, but timing was at about 0-2 degrees btdc. I just gave it a little…"
"Cleaning debri from the front channel of the carb —will be a big plus after a cold start to warm the carb and makes for a very smooth improved idle

"If it is a Carter AFB you have to use the stainless steel shim under the carb. These carbs came with an idle spoil port that caused the carb not to idle correctly if left off. This was intentionally done to force mechanics to reinstall the shim…"
"so the first thing is the stainless spacer shim. It may be missing from your carb. If your exhaust ports were completely plugged, it would have idled without it, but now that you have cleaned the exhaust channel, it won't. "
Hey guys, I'm having a problem with a 63 DeVille. I just rebuilt the carb and now I'm having issues getting it to idle. There was a few different issues, so I'll start at the top. The car ran and drove fine, but didn't idle well on a cold start. Carb hadn't been rebuilt in a while, so I pulled it off and rebuilt it, no major issues found, just a bit dirty.Sidenote- the carb kit came with updated needle/seat, so instead of your typical needle style, it uses a rubber bumper.

Hi all I am looking to have an aftermarket distributor made for these year models. I have fitted a Holley Sniper to my 63' 390 & want the Sniper to control the timing.
This is in the very early stages so I am looking to see if it is viable. I understand the purists might see this as sacrilgious but the Sniper has made my car soo much better for me. I am asking to see if there is any interest?
Hello, would anybody be able to tell me if I’m using the correct gasket on my Rochester throttle body? It doesn’t look right to me. I’m not sure if the carb actually ran with this gasket because I got it used with no history. Any help would be appreciated …
