Good morning, all.
I was minding my own business, and ;
Have a GREAT weekend.
Good afternoon, all. God Bless you and your Family ... and Happy New Year 2020.
This happened Sunday after Church.
Hmmmm.... Chris. I bet you ran over an IED, it bounced up and landed on your distributor.
Chris, what did you do in Church??? G-d smite your rotor!
... NIIIICE one. LMAO
Happy New Year 2020 to you and your family, and God Bless.
Good afternoon, all.
My H.E.I. Cap & Rotor Saga is OVER.
Good afternoon, and God Bless.
Good night, and God Bless you and your Family.
This is a video of earlier today, regarding my Holley-950 Carburetor and Baseplate.
It broke when I was tightening the LAST Nut, following my Intake Valley Pan Gasket change.
... before the Intake Manifold Valley Pan Gasket change.
Thank you very much for your time and view, and God Bless you all and your Family.
Added some comments on your videos about your 4-hole carb spacer and your vacuum pump.
Short version is that particular spacer appears to be a 4-hole center section which can be changed to an open spacer(if you had the piece). That 4-hole center section has openings that are only 1 5/8" while your 950 has 1 3/4" openings so there is a possible restriction.
Your vacuum pump seems to run too much at idle. IMO once it pumps up it should shut off especially when running at idle, not using the brakes. Is it hooked up right? Vacuum leaks? Check valve at engine bad or missing?
Mr. Pesarchick ... Happy New Year 2021 to you and your Family.
The Vacuum Pump has always operated that way ... but I will indeed check for Vacuum Leaks.
My new issue for 2021 is this weird rotating squeaky noise. I noticed it for the 1st time the day before this video.
Mr. Jim Weise has never heard this type noise. My 1976 Buick "482" is currently in BUILD process.
Remove one belt at a time and see if the noise stops.
It could be a shaft on power steering, or water pump.
Unlikely, it is the distributor shaft or cam bearing, those would make a different sound. This one sounds "close to the outside".
Once metal on metal (bushing/bearing galling) starts, it can make that "chirping", but it will never get better, only worse.
A stethoscope can be picked up at auto parts store for a few bucks. But keep you hair tight and secured, no loose clothing and be damned carful around those moving parts. They got invisible hands that will snatch you in a New York minute.
