Emissions? hah, here my 79 is old enough to be emissions exempt. Also, the place I take it to will pass it without question, if I slip the guy $20.

Thats great and all, but I don't live where you live, and they cannot fudge a test here, so I dont care. Yes it sucks that in Clark County 1967 is the cut off date, even the Nova has to pass smog.

I cant stand when people just say "that sucks! no emissions testing here!" I dont live there. Just like the price of gas in europe has no bearing on the fact that 4 bucks a gallon sucks here.

Yeah, that sucks man. I never would've gotten my old Nova to pass emissions either. Of course, I haven't had that car for about 7 years...

Just do what I do, drive down the street with headers and O2 sensors. Who needs a downpipe, cats, and mufflers?












Really though, I need to get some pipes put on it. I'm afraid to drive it because I'm sure I'll get pulled over with as loud as it is.

the one day I have to drive the jeep it decides to rain in this god forsaken desert. Yay for losing the back end of a 5500 pound truck on every corner I take!

Something weird just happened. The jeep was running beautifully on Monday, I drove it all over the place, and after a day of driving i retarded the timing a little to eliminate some pinging I heard, then parked it after a test run.

Timing was set at 12 degrees, doubt that matters though.

Went to start it, it woudnt fire. I kept cranking, but no go. I couldnt smell hardly any gas either with the air cleaner off, but figured it'd be reeking at that point.

I shot some starting fluid into it, and VROOM it ran for a few seconds and i shut it down.

K, so it's not getting fuel. I put some more gas in the tank in case it was lower than i thought, no go.

I then pulled the fuel line from the carb (edelbrock performer) and a little bit came out, as is normal, and a little flooded back out from the carb nipple. I put the line in a can, and cranked the truck to see if i had fuel pressure. The thing fired up instantly and ran, so i shut it down. It ran without the fuel line, and the can had a bunch of gas in it.

I put the fuel line back on, and it ran like normal.

What could have caused that? I don't see how there could have been a vacuum strong enough to keep the truck from getting fuel, even though it was super hot when i shut it down, and its alot cooler...but it's 4 days later. This seems impossible especially seeing as the fuel came back out of the carb when I pulled the line, the tank venting system is hooked up and i had the gas cap off.

Ideas? Is my carb just being funky?

might have just been a piece of trash in the fuel line.

Miss Amy's sensibilities and the language filter prevent me from telling you what I really think about you.

Could be, but there's a filter about 1.5' from the carb.

I guess it could have evaporated the fuel out of the bowls if the carb is leaky and because of the heat, apparently those eddy's have massive bowls that take a while to fill up if they drain out.

I probably need a rebuild anyway.

Eventually, but the nuts on the body bolts have broken loose so i need to get a 2" hole saw and cut holes in my tub from the inside to re-weld the nuts...so, maybe.

I was going out to try to smog the jeep with my retarded timing and after getting it heated up, but the smog station was closed, so I took the jeep and my girl on a little ride, out to the Kodachrome area. Real pretty colors out there. Maybe thats why its called Kodachrome?

Snapped 1 decent pic with my cell, and just thought I'd share.



A few others that are not as good. It started raining so I figured I better go home, seeing as i drove through like 5 washes.
