Engine Performance problem
1979 Chevy El Camino V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100+ miles
The engine is aparently a 5.7 no points; it is module. I installed new ignition module, solnoid, rotor, cap, plug wires and spark plugs. Timing sounds better but Still lacks power and tops out at 35 mph. Compression is: 1@160, 3@170, 5@150, 7@165
2@160, 4@152, 6@150, 8@140
I tried to adjust feul air mixture on the two barrel carburator, but I probably made it worse. Vacuum is modified. The oil on the old spark plugs was baked. What's next?
have the same problem?
