  1. We have been moving for the last 2 years and I am just getting to my 1966 Catalina projects. I am asking for your input, as I am use to Corvette Pure us. I have several questions for starters. This is a car that was only show for the last 20 to 25 years. The owner did not have a drivers license for a large part of that time. He was the 2nd owner. For the most part is is all original with 75,000 miles. Things like the battery , spark plus wires, spark plugs, mufflers have been changed. Here are my questions. 1. Since it was in a barn or garage with the front end sticking out for 20 years, it has a smell in the interior. I have have removed most of the interior out and I believe I am going to change the original carpet to help remove the smell. Should I? If I change it should I put in OEM carpet or a super plush carpet? Should I use the standard backing or mass backing? Is there a soundproofing I should use? I need to paint some small areas of the dash. Should I put new sill plates on? The originals are good, but look pretty old. There is no rust anywhere. Any suggestions on how to do this? 2. If not this year next I want to clean up the engine compartment. I will probably pull the engine. I am thinking about upgrading to a 4 barrel. I have all the parts and would put on an electronic carburetor and electronic ignition. It came with a period correct after market air conditioner. I am thinking about taking it off? Should I keep the OEM tappet covers or go with chrome? It was under coated and it has a lot of over spray. How do I get this off? What else should I or should I not think about? I really need to figure some of this out and I am about to order the interior parts to get that finished up. Thanks for any help you can be.
  2. I'm new to the forum and also to the build world. Just want some good respectful, opinions, and ideas, how how to build my 73 grand prix 455. First like to start with what size carb and flowmasters?
  3. Am not too thrilled about an I4 being added to the lineup, being a pony car and all but I guess there needs to be some competition with Ford and bring up CAFE mpg fleet sales... Need to see what power it will have and how much the new gen Camaro will weigh.
  4. Well fellas, I will finally have some more time Saturday to get to tweaking the issues with the '76 GP's idle/accel issues. Started with running terrible and popping back through the carb. After a new fuel pump (smelled fuel in the oil), wix inline filter and new lines, and 2 Rochester carb rebuilds (soaked the parts overnight in the carb solvent the 2nd time as well as installing a new brass float), re gapped the new plugs to .045 that were gapped at .080 by the seller, new vaccum lines, and I also have the new pcv valve and lines (there wasn't one) to install Sat. It now accelerates MUCH better, but idles like it wants to die at stoplights (and does die sometimes) but starts right back up. I thought maybe to tweak the vaccum lines to see how they work best b/c some diagrams show a "t" going to the vac advance with one going to the manifold, and the other going to the carb... and some diagrams just show a single line to the carb. I also don't know it the missing pcv would cause any minor idling or accelerating issues, but I do know that it should be there. the timing is solid. I am going to drain the tank again and refill it with 89 octane fuel to also see if that helps. I am curious though, as it seems to only try to die after it's warmed up. I know there is a choke internal in the intake but it's tough to find a diagram specific enough to list all of the line connections for a 1976 400 2bbl... (most show them for the 4 bbl) If any of y'all have any tips, I'll surely give them a try either tomorrow after work, or Saturday when I do the rest... Have interior pieces to dye inbetween as well so it should be a great Poncho day -- just would feel much better if I could get this baby to run smooth! She's sooo close... Thank y'all for your time, and all of the guidance that you've given. Stevee
