    Plainfield IN car show

  3. guys i have a 72 with a 454 and the last time the front springs were replaced in1980, i was thinking of having my front end rebuilt ,car rides great and have no issues but the other day i noticed the rubber bushings on the top a arms are shot, i have a local shop that i would like to get a quote from ,but don't know what a good price would be , my biggest FEAR would be installing the one of the many different big block springs available ,andnot liking the correct car height, thanks roger

    great ,thank you for your help , i will start out with baby steps and let you know ,the last time i had the original carb rebuilt and is in the car now the carb was professionally done ,the carb also had worn out throttle body shafts that were creating a vacuum problem for me, used a propane torch unlit of course and went around the throttle body plate ,and the rpms went up as the car was idling telling me there a vacuum leak from the worn out brass shafts, thanks again roger

    hi, i have a stock rochester quad carb, stock ignition, timing maybe a little advanced and the exhaust out the rear off the car, yes that could be that it is a little rich ,the car turned off at the car show will also have a rich smell to it until it cools down,thanks
  12. the car show we went to ,on the way there my wife and my eyes got irritated from the fumes giving off on the inside of the car with the windows down, could it be that the carb is set to lean or rich, i would not know how to correct this,i think it is a carb issue ,but the car runs great at idle and exceleration, thanks
  13. the club i belong to is having a car show on sunday from 2-'6 p,m, at the moran ac club on nichelson st in joliet ,i will try to be there weather permitting

  15. not quite sure what is going on maybe normal, when i have my emergency lights on the rear red parking lights are not on, but when i have the driving lights on without the headlights on they work ,but my front yellow parking lights flash when my emergency lights are on but the rear red lights don't work
