Quote from: POLARACO
Believe it or not, I have Autolite Platmuns in Polaraco.  Runs real good.  Actually seemed to increase the power and idle better.  I can go 30,000 on those if it behaives itself.
 
I think any platinum plug seems to be happy in a car with EFI as opposed to one with a carb.

I called Mobby and gave him the step by step in fine tuning his carb to the best of his ability and also working on it in the dark.
He brought up the timing a little,adjusted the curb idle.Vacuum reading 19-20 inches.adjusted the mixture screws until the needle on the vacuum guage stopped jumping around.
Throw it in gear,put it  under load .No ping.
Mobby is out driving it now and I am  awaiting his call back.
Electric choke is disconnected for now
Mobby? did you re-connect your vacuum advance????
He called and said yes.
OK.

Let that be a lesson to you.  You would think you learned on the first Holley.
 
You asked me which carb to get.  I told you get an Edelbrock.  So you come home with a Holley.  What part of those letters didn't you understand?  There are only 2 common letters between the two names!  Both vouls.
 
Stop listening to the performance guys that have Holley decals all over their cars.  That is not the carb for you.  You need a Plug and Play setup.
 
Sheeeesh

That'll teach him. . .   I love this.  One of the best creations I have done yet.  You should have heard the conversation between the three of them while they installed 1 stinkin spark plug.  It was halarous.  Mobby had his phone on speaker.
 
I had Leaburn on the other phone at the same time.  He was laughing harder than I was.  The three stooges would fit here too.  Wo Wo Wo Wo  Nar Nar Nar Nar
