    Holy $^!# I bought a turd

    would putting k & n filters right on the carbs better than this CAI?

    I would be interested in finding a stock air cleaner housing

    hahahaha that's awesome! so stoked you found that out. they are identical length and the glue job seems good. i added oil into both carbs and measure with the original damper rod. I might throw some higher grade epoxy on there hahah the car is a 73.

    this thing seems solid. it has had a ton of body work done to it I can only found one hole about an inch square right above where someone welded in new floor pans.

    what's the big rush in removing the CAI it isnt being supported by just the carbs. but because the car had a 14 Inch magnaflow that was soooo loud you couldnt hear anything we just welded in a glass pack I had laying around to act as a resonator. I took the valve cover vent off and plugged the hole on the balance tube. added 20w oil to the carbs. holy $^!# the turd runs decent. waaaaay better. now when I hit 4000+ rpm i hear a noise which i think is the water pump from searching the forum.

    hahaha I have the fuel section of the FSM downloaded although I cant see where the short rod would go

    I want to get the car running as good as I can. i have decent fabrication skills i can weld bungs in here or there modify the Intake if need be. I'm looking for a fair to good running car that I can enjoy driving with some reliability. its definitely not going back to stock unless that will greatly improve throttle response and drivability. this car is going to be a budget hot rod for me. really appreciate the input from some of you who are more familiar with this setup. and figured some of you would enjoy this FrankenZ... brother in law thinks I should just drop a sbc in it and forget about the inline6 but I would like to see how good I could get it ✌

    both caps are plastic. I guess I could use the 20w and use the one stock indentation to measure both carbs.

    Holy $^!# I bought a turd

    I think it must have come off a different car with the same carbs?
  13. mattjcr240

    should I buy this car!?

    I've bought the car... I started another thread showing how much of a mangled mess the car is. but in going to try my best to make something decent

    the picture makes them look like different lengths but they're that same

    Holy $^!# I bought a turd

    so I removed the two caps ser rhe picture. they were dry. from what in reading shouldn't there be oil on there? also in regards to the vent on the valve cover would it be better to plug the port on the intake manifold and just put a filter on the valve cover?
