    Holy $^!# I bought a turd

    I went to the autobody shop today and got them to make me some touch up paint so I can sand it down and have a look. and when I say touch up paint I mean 2k rattle can.

    that would be nice but based on the rest of the car I highly doubt that. I think I'm going to just try and fix it and see how long it holds. I dont think I'll keep this car for the long run. maybe a summer two and then sell or trade. everyone thinks it's a porsche haha

    my ebrake was stuck so I'll cleaned everything good and got it to move but it wont return even with both ends unhooked from the drums. I figure I'll take it out and let it soak in some honey goo.

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

    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 ✌
