    To be sure:

    It was going lean before this, correct?

    It liked idling before this setting, correct?

    If it does make a difference when you unplug the distributor at idle, check if the vacuum solenoid lines are reversed. If so, the solenoid will not vent properly which can hold the timing high...

    LOL
    It all depends on the rubber (natural, synthetic, etc). If its viton like the PPR o-ring, no problem even with gasoline.
    Play it safe and use the silicone grease.

    I see you asked Josh if he still had the one he posted about in Ethan's wanted ad. I'd suggest you PM Josh.

    If he has sold it to Ethan, please PM me so I can close the thread.

    Carbs don't need the pump to be primed unless you let them sit so long that the bowl goes dry. OEM systems may or may not prime when you turn them on. It depends on the type of RPM relay, etc., i.e.,...

    If it is 0.0psi, you can assume it is probably contaminated (with air). Big difference than "you don't see at least 70 psi".

    I've seen several Ds that would 'prime' the pump when flashing the high beams. Cycling the switch, bumping the starter, charger/jumper cables...can do it too.

    If you are sure your connections etc. are good, it must be the gauge. In that case, I'd buy a gauge or isolate the gauge and run it with two dedicated wires (fed by the Aux 2 relay's feed).

    Yep, that would be "extreme". :deviltail:


    Not really. That's only true if the charge is at least 70F, E.G., at 60F, R12 will be 57.7psi. Adding would over charge it. And, you must...
