Installing Fuel Injection.
Well I gave up on getting the quadrajet working the thing was warped to bad and after spending a week trying to get it to run halfway decent and not wanting to spend $300 on a new carb I just went ahead and ordered a Holley Commander 950 system to fix the problems with the carb and ignition at one time 🙂 The system isn’t hard to install but they don’t give you much in the way of instructions for it. I also will be converting the distributor to a 7 wire computer controlled setup and getting rid of the old mechanical and vacuum advance setup. I don’t like the short wiring harness that it comes with so I will probably end up mounting the computer somewhere in the back. probably in the side where the door latch is, I can make a cover to keep the water out of that area so it should stay dry hopefully.
I also mounted the coolant recovery tank right below the main air purge tank. I have had good luck so far with the cooling system. I let the engine idle when it still had the carb on it for about 30 min and the car never tried to overheat. The fan would kick on at 180 and keep the temp right there without letting it vary by more than a few degrees. The carb was running so bad it would dump gas down the engine if you let it get more than 1500rpm and flood it out and make it almost die so I still have not been able to get the car to move out of the driveway yet and see if it would cool the engine while it was being driven.
