Well my guy found some original AC Delco points and replaced them on my
truck. Mine are still on order at Carters, getting to be 3 weeks. He did
the timing and told me that I put my new distributor cap on backwards. I
did not have a clue that there was a correct way to put the caps on. We can
now drive the truck and have a normal conversation in the cab. For some
reason the engine runs much quieter. The truck still hesitates on
acceleration however there is no backfire. After driving 10 - 15 minuets
there is no hesitation. Also, I noted 3 months ago that I was running
straight 30 weight oil and I had 30 lb pressure for the first 10-15 minuets.
I have changed to 10/30 and now I have 15-17 lb pressure for the first 10-15
min then it drops down to 7 lbs and stays there. This is also the time
period that I have had all of my problems. Is there a connection?
My guy told me that to stop the hesitation that I need to rebuild the
carburetor. What do you all think?
