I need a new base for my carb. It’s all pitted and I think it’s causing a rough idle. Jason or Russ do you have one in good shape?

Alternators

Has anyone had a bad alternator cause a weird misfire at idle, almost like the car is not sparking properly? I’ve upgraded to pertronix, replaced coil, plugs, plug wires and cap. Carburetor replaced twice. Still idles like absolute crap at idle. There are no vacuum leaks, believe me I’ve checked 8.2 million times. The vacuum booster is good. The compression is good. The carburetor has been adjusted every which way from Sunday. To no end sit at a light and idle and it gets worse and worse. Step…See More

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…
