3500 is about where a Weber goes from the idle circuit to the main circuit. I would suspect either a miss sized or plugged main jet(s) or a problem with the emulsion tubes or the air corector jets. H

In my experience the short coming with Macco and other shops like them (Earl Sheib et al) is not the skill of the painter, but rather the shortcuts taken in prep and the use of cheap paint. If you ar

Am I missing something here? If the engine and trans are bolted together on the floor and the clutch master is located in the car on the other side of the garage. How do you connect the two together

If the A/c has not worked for a number of years it is most likely empty from either a leak or normal outgassing of the hoses (read leaks through the hose itself). So at this point there is probably

R134 systems that are retrofited do not, in my experience, get new hoses UNLESS the old ones are leaking. Why you ask? Simple the ester oil when mixed with the mineral oil of the R-12 system provide
