there was a leak at the carb but im sure the carb wont idle at 600 . it sounds the most healthy at 1k rpm . maybe it has a bigger cam1k rpm idle..., either issues like vacuum leak, carb problems and not enough initial timing, or your cam isn't that small. Stock or mild cam would idle at 600 unless problems. What is the vacuum and the timing with the vac adv plugged at idle in Park, and then the vac in Drive?
Think it's got a big cam from the exhaust note , had 440 with a lunati 604 cam and that sounded more tame !!HI,
1,000 rpm's is to fast.. unless its got a big cam in it.. Idle should be like 750 at the most..
any faster then any adjustment in the carb or timing is mute.
good luck take care be safe
It is quite dirty cleaning her up , getting a new carb too , hopefully solves the issuesBy looking at your pictures, the engine compartment is very dirty and it looks like it has a very fine dust all over. It's hard to tell but it looks like your air filter is quite clogged.
Start with the basics. Get a new air filter - if the car can't get enough air there will be problems.
Next, if some idle and timing adjustments don't work, I'd try a good carb rebuild. That doesn't mean slapping some new gaskets in it, but going through EVERY small hole and orifice with a wire and carb cleaner, and then carefully reassembling it and tuning it as discussed above.
haha not throwing money at herYou seem to be throwing money at problems.....where there is no problem...& not fixing the real problem.
You already have an excellent carb, which is why Mopar used them.....
Why buy a new booster if yours is OK?
