  1. Good afternoon everyone, Well I am going to give it a shot. Hopefully the picture comes out. Thanks for considering this 1966 (poor man GTO) Tempest. HEHE. The motor is original with only a few minor upgrades. The transmission is original and recently rebuilt. Thank you again for considering our car. Sincerely, Larry
  2. Good morning guys. Just wanted to say Happy very late fathers day to all the dads. Been a very busy few weeks(work, family) but just wanted to say hi. The Tempest unfortunately has been put on the back burner, for now. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks she will be going out for a nice cruise. Hope everyone's summer ride is leaving some rubber.. hehe
  3. https://foreverpontiac.com/gallery/image/296-/ https://foreverpontiac.com/gallery/image/297-/ Nice Ghetto heat shield huh? hehe Is the screw you are talking about the top one or the bottom on? Thanks on the rig. It's a side business and in the infant stages of the business but hopefully things keep going the way the are and just keep going up from here...

  6. I'll tell you Just A6 the starter is great. It is a little pricey( I think it cost around $228) but no starting problems at all. Besides being half the size and weight what I like about it is it's a gear reduction starter and it actually has two bolts on the front of it so you can position it any way you need. Definitely worth the money. I am going to attach a picture of the home made heat shield and a picture of the carb just to make sure I am turning/adjusting the correct screw...
  7. https://foreverpontiac.com/gallery/image/294-/ https://foreverpontiac.com/gallery/image/293-/ https://foreverpontiac.com/gallery/image/295-/ The picture of the motor is probably not the best to show the carb and the screw I am talking about. But if your looking at the front of the carb its on the right side. I tried to circle it. And I can here the comment s about the jerry rigged heat shield..hehe.. Just be gentle..hehe Thanks again guys. If anyone ever needs a tow give us a call. Just got a new truck..... https://foreverpontiac.com/gallery/image/254-/ And that picture was taken before the Pontiac was running..hehe...

  11. Good afternoon guys. JustA6 I finally put on the electric choke kit. I performed the procedure as you stated it seems to be running fairly well. I just have a couple of more questions, the idle screw your talking about is that the one located on the bottom or is it higher up, closer to the top of the carb? ill attach a picture to show what I am talking about. I believe Frosty answered this(thank you if you did Frosty and hello!) to properly adjust the rockers how do you do that? I tried finding some information on it but no luck. Also Frosty I took your advice and installed a high torque starter. What a difference. You definitely were right a bit pricey but worth it....
  12. Good morning, umm that would be a no. Refresh my memory on the proper procedure...hehe...

Also readjusted the floats.

  18. Good afternoon guys, Finally got a chance to work on "Tillie"...(Work is very over rated!! HEHE!) I ordered a rebuild kit from Edelbrock and a set of floats. Just A6 I did what you recommended with the floats, which I must say I never thought of doing, and the floats are fine. I ended up replacing the needles and seats and voila!! No more leaking/flooding. I took the car for a drive and it ran pretty well, sort of. Well the first thing I noticed was a nice puddle of antifreeze on the inside passenger side floor. And ordered and replaced the heater core, twice. You really have to love when new parts are defective(I'll send a picture of the defective heater core) Then I also noticed the car does run a little rough. If the rockers are not tighten properly could that cause the car to run rough?(Just to double check to tighten the rockers on my engine, 326, the vehicle needs to be running and remove one valve cover at a time and then tighten?) And how can you tell if they are tighten properly? Hope everyone is doing good...
  19. Hey JustA6, I will never shy away from any advice no matter how mundane it may seem. Sometimes we get so involved with the big picture that we forget sometimes about the very minor important details...So I found a manual for the edlebrock carbs(I tried to post the link for it but it would not let me. Saying that I am not allowed to post a file like that. Weird). However it states to take the top off and flip it over and adjust the float clearance with the gasket in place to 7/16 of an inch. Then lip the top up right and let the float hang and the clearance should be 15/16 to 1 inch. I did all that and it still is flooding. Could the needle and seat be bad? How about fuel pressure, to high? It is a regular fuel pump..... https://foreverpontiac.com/gallery/image/280-/ https://foreverpontiac.com/gallery/image/281-/ https://foreverpontiac.com/gallery/image/282-/

  23. Hey Just A6, I don't believe it is. I think you have to remove the top of the carb...
