Well just took the car on its very first road test, Went very well it stopped, went straight and ran great. One item is first gear is a little harder to get in but the rest is perfect maybe a little adjustment on the rod to get it in first easier(  I would lengthen the rod I assume ?)Just eased it around our little town but my god it feels like the motor could destroy the car but very well behaved. Im pretty pumped right now. :bananasmi :jumping: :cooldancing:

Thanks guys, all was good till yesterday ran great then parked it, and this morning started up ran great for 20 seconds and then started misfiring badly. so changed plugs and coil no diff, changed msd box no diff, only thing I can think of is the pick-up in the dissy. ? What do you guys think? this thing is killing me.

All new gas,I put new plugs and coil to see if it was that but no luck. then replaced the msd box same thing. it runs great for 20 seconds then starts to misfire, ill change the pick up as I think that is the only thing I did not change.

Sounds like your ignition is fine. How about fuel flow? Sounds like it could be the filter to me.  :2cents:

You ARE running a fuel filter...right? Just curious what you had to 'blow out'?
I had issues with the Holly sintered filter at the inlet once. Caused fuel starvation issues. Removed it and relied on the regular inline.

Hey, Yeah I am running an inline filter. Just stripped the carb down and blew everything out, worked.
