Guest Posted December 3, 2000 Share Posted December 3, 2000 I need help. My 425 nailhead was just rebuilt to a short block. I did the rest of the assembly myself. When we turned it over for the first time to do the camshaft break in. Things went fairly smoothly. Once the initial break in was complete we had trouble timing it and keeping it at an idle less than 1000rpm. No matter what the idle it dies when put in gear, unless I give it more gas. I have replaced the original carb I rebuilt with a brand new Edelbrock 600cfm electric choke. I've checked everywhere for vaccuum leaks and I am at a loss. As far as I can tell all cylinders are sparking. I fixed an oil leak and am working a fuel leak right now. I am getting ready to go back to TDC and start ignition timing from scratch. Oh yeah, I also installed a Pertronix Ignitor and Flamethrower coil. I would be very grateful to anyone who has any suggestions, advise or can help me in any way.<P>Thanks in advance,<BR>Dave Wright<BR>'65 Skylark Gran Sport<BR>email@example.com<BR>(520) 579-3373 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
