Ok thanks. As for the vacuum. I've tried a spot on the carb an intake. It didn't seem to make a difference at all.

It will make a difference when it is set correctly under load.

Yes i'm going to try that tonight. On a side note I think my carb was mislabeled. Cause it looks alot like redlines 38 dgas carb. It's the only instructions I've found how to tune for a carb that looked like mine. So with timing an a little tuning I might get it finished. Atleast it idles now, so i'm headed in the right direction.

just toss 400 bucks in the bank every month (as if you had a new car and were making a car payment).

gives you something to work with when you need to replace a little part here and there (like an engine, transmission, or axle).

Well, she runs an drives pretty good. I guess I had two plug wires in the wrong spot. So I just need a little tinkering an she'll be as good as new.

Now I just need to figure out why I have no dash lights, an no tail light, but I have brake lights. The put on a new muffler since it looks like this one got hung up on a can opener. I'll keep y'all posted.
