    Front bumper center Valence

    I have been trying to repair the front center valance on my 81. The car was in a minor front end collision before I bought it, so I am not sure what should and should not be there. Looking at the Assembly manual, it seems that there is no bracket or support on the front (pointy end) of the...

    Idle issues

    I just rebuilt an E4mE (1981 CCC carb). Put it on the car, started right up, choke engaged , fast idle perfect, kicked off when it warmed up then stumbled and died, increased the idle speed, 1100 out of gear, 900 in gear and it idles pretty good (a small skip every 5 seconds). Took it out on...

    EGR Solenoid

    This weekend I put the Distributer Shield on my 1981 -- Big day because it was the first time one has been on the car in about 27 years. Looks good, but I sure know why bubba thought fit to toss it in the first place. A bit of a PIA to get on properly. BUT-- In doing this I broke the EGR...

    E4ME adjustment Questions

    Hi all Just rebuilt my E4ME, mainly because it was sitting on my car without running for about 10 years. I started it this weekend and the choke worked fine, but when it opened it would not idle, I slowly adjusted the idle air bleed valve and to my surprise, the engine began to idle as...
