Engine Performance problem
2005 Other Chevrolet Models V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 180 miles
I have a 1940 ford deluxe with a chevy crate 502 engine with a holley carb model 4150, 850 cfm. When my engine temp gauge reads 195-200 (which is where these motors want to run) it will tend to stall. I've installed a 1" phenolic heat spacer and a heat shield under the carb, re-routed the fuel line away from the block and have installed a heat shield sleave for the fuel line (from chassis to the carb) yet the problem persists. I've seen fuel coolers which look like mini trans coolers but I'm not sure that will slove the problem. I want to avoid converting to a fuel injection system due to the cost but if I have to I will. What do you think?
have the same problem?
