    Backfire through carb

    My 82 C3 with crossfire injection is popping through the carb. It runs smooth during idle and low acceleration, but under torque or high rpm the engine runs rough and shows a compression backfire with no flames through the carb. My thought... intake gasket, lifter, head gasket. Any...

    Computer reset.

    I have made allot of good changes to my C3 engine in the last couple of weeks. Should I disconnect the battery to perhaps reset the on board computer/processor? Thank you Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk

    82 carb rebuild

    I just finished rebuilding my carbs on my crossfire. The vehicle starts and runs better but the rpm is holding around 1500. Even when the engine is up to temp. Any ideas please. Thank you Sent from my SM-G928T using Tapatalk

    Drivers power seat removal

    Would anybody know how to remove a powered drivers seat that does not work. I have removed the cushions and I can get to the front bolts that holds down the front of the track. I cannot get to the back bolts because the motor needs repair. Thanks Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk

    Engine timing or drive shaft/u joints

    While hitting a cruising speed above 40 mph, I'm experiencing a vibration in my vet. If I let up on the gas slightly the vibration goes away. Any thoughts please. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk

    Tach in off position on a 82

    My tachometer needle parks itself around 1500 rpm when I shut down the engine. Returns to normal when engine is turned on. Is this something that I should be concerned about? Thank you Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk

    Winter Storage

    I'm looking for advice on how to prepare my 82 vet for winter storage. My big concern is rodents. Is there a solution for keeping them out of the wiring, interior., etc.. Thank you Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk

    C3 transducer vacuum

    Mounted right above my cruise control transducer on a separate bracket, I have a vacuum relay that has a 2 wire connector on it. The unit is hooked up to the intake manifold via vacuum hose. It looks like it should have a vacuum hose on the wire side also. Any clues please. Thanks <br />...
