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

Been looking on the For Sale forum. Not sure if possible or not, but it might be good if there would be sub-forums so cars go in one area and maybe spares could be sorted in a way as well. No idea…Continue

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…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
