I got the car last year from a guy just wanting to sell it. At the time I bought it the carb was done and it needed electric work. I fixed both problems by taking it to a shop for the light issue and installing a new 2 barrel 600 eldelbroke carb in it. After installing the new carb it worked fine at first. This is the problem. For some reason when driving it, it doesn't put out the power a 400hp engine should meaning. When I hit the gas it starts out real slow then picks up speed later. Some times it feels like it never shifts at all between gears but it speeds up. So my first problem is that the engine does not perform well. The second issue is the load. When ever I put it in reverse or drive at times it just wants to shut off. It does that at idle as well. Ive missed with the idle screw on the carb alot and thought I had it right, but never changes just goes back to lowering then shutting off after 15-20min, but any ways. When I back up it shuts off right before I put it and drive. So what do you think is going on? This is really a project/learn about mechanics car for me.
have the same problem?
