If my ECM is dead I plan on replacing the carb and dist. Here's what I'm thinking:
Summit Hei blueprinted dist @ $85
Eldebrock 1406 or Summit remanufactured Qjet---don't know which is a better choice
What do y'all think?
I just purchased an 81, still waiting for the service manual. Previous owner removed all emissions stuff. While driving it home you could tell there was a miss that seemed very much like a timing issue.
Put the light on it to discover an initial timing at 22 Adv! Ran it up to 2100rpm and no...
Just bought an 81 and at idle the tach seems fine. As you accelerate the tach begins to climb but stops at approx 1300-1400 rpm. You can imagine my eyes when I saw the tach at that mark while I was going 65!
What should I begin to check?
