The engine has 71000 original miles so I thought maybe the cam had a bad lobe. I pulled it out and the cam and lifters look great. While I had it out, I installed a new timing chain. When I had the engine out to install the trans and a new chrome steering column, I took a look at the rod and main bearings (they looked fine), and installed a new std. Volume melling oil pump. I don't know if it had this problem before I bought it because it didn't have any brakes so I hauled it home and never tried to drive it until after I installed the new trans and new power brakes. It also has a HEI distributor with a flame thrower coil, cap and module. I don't see anything wrong with them and I just installed new AC plugs ans new plug wires. NO HELP AGAIN ! A friend says it may be the exhaust doesn't have enough back pressure. It has stock manifolds and the pipes are stepped up to 3" into dual flowmaster 40 mufflers then 3" tail pipes out the sides in front of the rear tires. I don't like this set up but it was like this when I bought it. I've done everything that I know to do. Any help would be great.
have the same problem?
