280Dan Posted May 13 Report Share Posted May 13 So the PO was in the process of rebuilding this truck before I bought it so I’m looking to see if you guys can help my identify what I have, what’s missing or what needs to be changed. It has the original engine but I believe he put on a redline carb. I don’t think it’s properly tuned and that’s something else I’ll need to tackle. But he started removing emissions components which I’m fine with but I don’t think it’s running great. Some things I’ve recently experienced: After filling up with gas it just cranks/no start. I have to let it sit for a few minutes and after a few attempts it’ll start (possible purge issue?) At highway speeds it feels like it’s randomly misfiring. Not sure how to determine if that’s an air/fuel issue or a spark issue. I’m going to change the plugs right now and get a set of wires since they look real old anyway Any help is appreciated Quote Link to comment
