    Introduction and beginning of a (super slow) build thread

    Just slowly working on small things. Readjusted my valves, they were all pretty spot on it seemed to me. Then I decided to fix the noisy smog check valve on my exhaust, but I couldn't get enough leverage to get it off with the collectors on the car, so I had to pull them out, which led to me...

    Jack and spare tire help

    Like @g-man says I think the handle may be different though. I’ll order it and update when I get it.

    Jack and spare tire help

    So my truck didn’t have any of the jack tools when I bought it so I am trying to accumulate then. I found a jack on eBay, but I have a quick question. Which of the tools I have circled in the picture are used to lower the spare tire? Looking from the back of my truck I see a slot above the...

    1985 2f engine pull and replacement thread

    so I basically went to every local parts store and convinced them to let me look through all their hoses. I finally found this one with the right diameter and coils inside it so it keeps its shape when I make the 90+ degree bend. I don’t remember the brand or anything, it was just hanging on a...

    Not another emissions thread! Ugh.

    I like the hijack! The more talk the more info. They did not plane my intake. When I got the truck the PO had put on headers and a brand new intake, so it was in pretty good shape. So you did the desmog @Infinity00? I have a couple extra smog pumps, so I was gonna debate one, but then what do...

    Not another emissions thread! Ugh.

    @Infinity00 just for the sake of accuracy, my vacuum is 18. I went back and looked at my first post and I must have mistyped 19 cause I said 18 in the line before it. Still very happy with that number! Fresh engines are great! So excited to have it past emissions. Five years of not having to...

    1985 2f engine pull and replacement thread

    @garfieldthecat haha, my wife would say I'm an example of how not to do it. Haha, she is very understanding, but you can see from the length between my posts, and slow progress how it's going. Some weeks I might get to loosen 4 bolts or maybe just glance at the truck as I walk through the...

    Juanita - Slow & Steady

    Ugh. I’m down in Castle Rock and I battled the emissions for a while. So frustrating. Finally got it to pass with a smaller jet in the primary. 1.36.

    2f Idle help

    I did notice today that two of my carb screws that hold the top of the carb on had vibrated loose. I’m gonna take the air cleaner off and make sure they are all tight, probably readjust the valves, make sure I didn’t mess up the idle mixture to much and go from there.

    Rough Idle After Timing Adjust (Solved)

    Correct. If you time it to the BB at 7*. If you set the light to 7* and time it to the TDC line then you are at 7*. If i was using the BB I would just leave the light at 0. Otherwise I put the light on whatever degree I want and time it to the TDC line.

    Rough Idle After Timing Adjust (Solved)

    Good advice above. I am no expert, and I am just learning as well, so I’m not much help, but I am at 6500 ft elevation and I have been able to bump my timing up to about 10 degrees. I have a timing light that you set the advance on and then shoot the 0 degree mark. If you don’t have that, you...
