Re: always surgeing

Try the orange cam in the #1 position first as that will be the smallest fuel shot of the 4 choices you have. The 'power valve' will only open when the manifold vacuum drops below the rated value of...

Re: always surgeing

I would question if the distributor mechanical advance was optomized for that cam? If you are pushing the base timing out too far plus adding the vacuum advance, could be a cause of the engine...

Re: power loss, burning, lack of fuel...wtf??

If you look at the throttle 'rod' where it connects to the pedal linkage, there should be a clevis to adjust the length of the throttle rod to the carb. Maybe like 1/2" of adjustment is available...

Re: power loss, burning, lack of fuel...wtf??

Have you checked the exhaust system for restrictions? Is the 'flapper' in the passenger side downpipe free and opening? Any 'kinks' in the exhaust pipes or possible restrictions in the mufflers?

Re: power loss, burning, lack of fuel...wtf??

My opinion -- that 275 cfm carb is too small for a 345 engine. The carb is really a bit small for the 304 engine. The larger 0-7448, 350 cfm carb will make a big change in towing ability. It will...

Re: Mystery engine knock

If the knock seems to be at the front of the engine, try removing all the accessory belts and check for a cracked belt. Start the motor without any belts and listen for the knock. 10 - 15 seconds...

Re: Looking for some Information

If the cadillac valve covers have the International script on them, it is not a cadillac motor. The IH valve cover bolt pattern will not bolt to the cadillac heads. :nono:

Re: 1964 Travelall - Needs a Radiator

Have you talked to a local radiator shop about replacing the 'core'? There were 2 row and 3 row cores. The upper and lower tanks will determine which core you need. If I recall, it took one day...

Re: Holley 2300 tech specs

The 'aftermarket' air filters will only supply the heated/expanded air from the engine compartment. The main jets in the carb will be 'sized' to provide the air/fuel ratio for that 'expanded' air at...

Re: Holley 2300 tech specs

The ethanol fuel 'by itself' won't clog the jets. Clogging a main jet happens when there is no filter in the fuel line, allowing trash to pass from the tank to the fuel bowl of the carb.
While...

Re: Holley 2300 tech specs

The ethanol additive won't damage the metal of the jets. The central valley of CA appears to be mostly under 400 ft elevation. There isn't much 'down' from your location. Use a 'low restriction'...

Re: Holley 2300 tech specs

The 1 1/4" venturi is in the 'g' series 2300 carb. You don't have the 'governed' carb. Just a plain 2300 275cfm carb. Living under 2000 ft elevation, the #52 main jets should work well, as has...

Re: Holley 2300 tech specs

The 'normal/usual' main jets for the 275cfm Holley 2300 carb would be marked as #51, 52 or #53. Depending on the application. The #60, 61, 62 or 63 jets were used in the larger 350cfm carb. Again,...

Re: Holley 2300 tech specs

You are measuring the 'base/bottom' of the carb 'main body'. Those openings are the bottom end of the venturi. Measure the top of those passages to get the 'diameter' of the opening. If the...

Re: 304 problem

I still use the points style ignition, but I believe the callout for a brass feeler gauge has something to do with not being 'magnetic'. Best ask someone using the electronic system.

Re: 304 problem

Re: 1966 2WD Travelall Brake Issues and Redo

As the difference between the 'original' wheel cyl bore size is 1 1/16" front and 1" rear, changing to 1 1/8" front and 1 1/16" rear retains the 1/16" difference for weight shift. With shoe to drum...

Re: 1966 2WD Travelall Brake Issues and Redo

For the '68 1100 4x4 truck, the listed front brake cyl bore size is 1 1/16". The 2 wheel drive truck shows a 1 1/8" bore size. Because of taller = 31+ diameter tires, I am considering going with...

Re: Overheating 345? Help!

Have you checked the vacuum line to the vacuum advance can on the distributor? If it fails, the ignition timing won't get the extra advance at driving speeds - in effect, the timing is retarded by...

clip Re: Holley 2300 problems on rebuilt 266

This is the side of the metering body the fuel bowl mounts against. Only way for the fuel to flow past the metering body is to leave out the power valve. Try using 2 gaskets for the p/v. There are...

How practical is it to just go with a 'cool air intake'? Bring in the air from behind the grill and duct it up to the snorkel of the filter housing. Seal the lid to the base so the cool air stays...
