Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

One thing that is being missed is that rule 115 of the NHTSA standard did not become effective until January 1st of 1969. By that time all of the '68 Cougars had been built. If some one can find the original rule 115 we can see if it dictated how the tags were to be installed. I don't know that it i...

Re: Carb/Vacuum question

Where do you live? I like tuning. It is a really fine balance that you are looking for between timing, mixture, and gasoline. One thing that I always like to say repeat, is that most carb problems are actually ignition related.

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

Re: Carb/Vacuum question

On modified vehicles you are the engineer. You will need to do your won tuning and write your own specs. In particular if you are running a performance cam and have greatly diminished vacuum, stock parameters are not likely going to work.

Re: Carb/Vacuum question

If you are working on a Chevy then the advice being given in the article is correct. However it is not correct for Ford products built from '67 to '73. these applications also had VERY low initial static timing (usually 4 degrees or less, and some actually were set at 2 degrees AFTER TDC).

Re: Any one speak Spanish or possibly Portugese?
