  1. Thanks to help from this forum, my engine has run like a watch for four years. Two weeks ago after idling for about 15 minutes, the idle speed became a little erratic, so I gave it some gas to clear its thoat but no improvement. On the way home car would die at stops unless I kept up rpm with pedal, choke or dash control. Tried car again since then with same result and some lack of power at higher speeds but smooth. When trying to lower idle speed below about 700 rpm, engine will die suddenly. I can catch it with a blip on the throttle(has a Carter BB-1D updraft w/pump). Cleaned the points & plugs-no change. Glass bowl on fuel pump was clean and pumps 4-5 lbs and will hold 4 lbs for a few seconds after shut down. Disasembled carb and still looked as clean as four years ago. Float is even with top of bowl which is 1/16" higher than spec but it ran great before like that-still no change. Vacumm test(from wiper tube)only showed 12 Hg at any steady speed but only 10 Hg at 700 rpm. I believe this engine pulled 17 Hg four years ago. Gaskets look ok. Noticed that iron carb spacer(1.5" high) sweats a lot after running for a few minutes. Is it possible I have a breach in the intake/exhaust manifold ? Sorry for long wind and thanks for any help. Ted
  2. Does anybody have any experience with the Delco Lovejoy shocks with ride control? I have them on my '32 Pontiac. I tested them and the adjustment did not make any difference in the force needed to move the arm. I then added some Hydraulic and Jack oil (AW 32) and they now seem to work fine. They go from very free to extremely difficult to move as you move the adjusting lever. My question is: should I just leave well enough alone since they seem to be working? Before I added the oil I was planning to rebuild but now reconsidering since they seem to be working as they should. Any help would be appreciated. Rob
