Engine Performance problem V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 25 miles
My modified 1968 ford Fairlane has a bored 30/over 460 engine. It is a new engine block, that has been blue printed and balanced. It has a nice lion purr. The problem is: In order to start it up, I must quickly thump the gas pedal repeatedly to the floor a dozen times, and only when it is to the floor it starts & idles, "But only if I continue to hold (pedal now 1/2 way to floor) For 1 minute > I then Easily ease off pedal and it`s purring fine. This is very loud & noisy, if a cop came by and herd that Hmm. What are you doing (perhaps a ticket) and cough from all that exhaust etc. Maybe a gas mask too! It looks to be electric fuel injected is a (Holly) carburetor & electric fuel pump in the back of car. You know what advice I would Greatly Appreciate. Thank you. Richard Toronto, Ontario, Canada
