Re: always surgeing

I had to do some quick research on that carb, as I wasn't familiar with the list number. 600 cfm is a lot of carb for an SV8, although with vacuum secondaries the engine will only use the delivery...

Re: always surgeing

My first thought off the bat is 18* of static advance is too much, especially for a 392. 8* degrees is about max. I'll be back with more thoughts. It's a lot to digest.

Re: Fuse Block upgrade?

So they do exist. At nearly $5 each plus shipping, that gets spendy for a kinda gimmicky fix.

Re: Engine Isolator

SII has a metal-encased, rubber mount on each side of the block that are roughly melon-sized. Do you have any pictures of what you're asking about? Its not ringing any bells. Could be some time of...

What vehicle are you working on? Basic data like this matters a great deal.

Re: Fuse Block upgrade?

If they start giving you enough problems, the best thing to do is bypass them with continuous wire runs through a grommet. Those connectors were primarily an assembly line convenience. When you get...

Re: Fuse Block upgrade?

You bet. And in case it makes any difference to you, the '79 block and firewall bulkhead connectors you have in your Scout are a much improved design over earlier model years. The earlier ones are...

Re: Fuse Block upgrade?

Geez! Lurch huh? No, fuse blocks aren't grounded. Individual circuits or collections of circuits are grounded at appropriate locations throughout the vehicle. You can google search just like I've...

Re: Fuse Block upgrade?

There's no practical or reliable way to adapt the glass fuse dock to accept blade fuses that I've ever heard of. I can understand your reasoning for wanting to do so, but I can't imagine it being a...

Re: 1977 traveller dies when I stop or when I put into gear

You're welcome!



I could see that being a potential problem. Vaporized fuel will shut you down quickly. The fuel pump can't pressurize vapor.

Re: 1977 traveller dies when I stop or when I put into gear

Never engage 4x4 either range on a hard, dry surface, especially pavement. There needs to be some give on your driving surface to avoid parts damage in 4x4. 4Hi is fine on pavement with a layer of...

Re: 1977 traveller dies when I stop or when I put into gear

Well, first thing is purge from your memory the shifting instruction given to you by the previous owner. Its complete balderdash.

You have a Dana 20 part time, four wheel drive transfer case. By...

Re: 392 Four Speed to 727?

Is there a physical reason, like a gimpy clutch knee or similar condition that makes an automatic personally more preferable to a standard? What's going to be the primary use of the vehicle and what...

Re: 1977 traveller dies when I stop or when I put into gear

Well that's handy! Maybe your mechanic will turn out to be a Motorcraft carb fanboy and just be a total whiz with them. If not, my suggestion would be hands down the Holley 2300 list 0-7448. That...

Re: 1977 wiper worries

Do you know of any good, electric motor repair shops in your area? Best would be to pay a professional to overhaul it for you, unless you're good with small motor repair. You could make things...

Re: 1977 traveller dies when I stop or when I put into gear

Thanks for the pics. They always have a story to tell. Somebody has gotten fairly creative under that hood a few times. Typical situation. I agree with the mechanic's opinion of the stock two...

Re: 1977 traveller dies when I stop or when I put into gear

It would help us to properly identify the carb. One of the best ways to do that is to get the rock strainer assy off and out of the way to reveal the carb. Then take some quality pics from both...

Re: 1977 wiper worries

Re: confused

This is going to be a little tricky. Reason why is because I have a '74 Scout and FSM to match. You have a '79 and matching FSM. The '79 BHC arrangement was updated and improved over prior SII...

Re: confused

Ok. You transitioned from the solenoid up to the BHC and I didn't pick up on the location change. I thought we were still talking about solenoid connections. Let me ruminate on this for awhile now...
