    Hey Ross, OK. So here we go from square one, doing things in the proper order. OK? Let's get BACK to the the Timing Curve. In order to make this coherent, am going to alter the sequence of your post to respond. OK? Have gone back and read your previous post, and found some recommended options...

    Hey Mr. GZ, Didn't forget ANYTHING! THE GODDAMNED RPM NEVER "CHANGED"! :) It just got ERRATIC! I chased the goddamned RPMs up&down, up&down, up&down, up&down, and up&down, till I couldn't see straight! And each time, it got MORE&MORE erratic. And the more I chased it, the more elusive it...

    Hey All, Friday, June 24, 2016, Morning Update: IT'S EASY-PEASY... BUT ONLY IF YOU SAY IT REAL FAST! First thing... Turned the Electric Choke Cap to where the Choke Plate was about 3/32" off the Back Wall of the Air Horn. Next, hooked up the Vacuum Gauge to the Vacuum Line FROM the 4100 TO...

    Hey Ross, Thanks. It was an interesting process, and have actually comprehended most of what was done. Still, there is so much to it that one could mess with it forever. Would you believe that this is ACTUALLY understood? Can see how THAT would affect the advance rate. BTW, how are Advance...

    Hey Mel, HAD to show off that HUGE U-Joint. It's like a piece of sculpture. Am thinking of cleaning it up and painting it in dainty colors (pale pink, light lavender, and white) to make light of it. It would have about the same effect as seeing Hulk Hogan in a tutu&satin ballet shoes! :) Am sure...

    Hey Tim, The intent was a "sight gag"! I mean, a sixty-pound HEAVY-DUTY-POLICE-INTERCEPTOR U-JOINT? That just struck me as being funny! :) That U-Joint is bigger than Ms. American's Differential! And to blame the PerTronix Ignition System for BLOWING that BIG a thing... Don't they WISH? It was...

    Hey Mr. GZ, Can only DREAM of 20" of Vacuum in the Intake Manifold at 700 RPM Idle. Now that Ms. American is no longer in the Driveway that goes to the back of the house, am going to back Lorrie as far to the rear of the house to unload her cargo bay of all the "stuff" that was used working on...

    Hey Mr. GZ, Was coming out of the Brookshire Brothers Grocery Store, and as Lorrie turned left going East, there is Jerry's Restaurant, a kind of TruckStop Coffee Shop across the street from the BB Grocery Store a little East of the Exit of the BB's Parking Lot. With Lorrie's Steering Wheel on...

    Hey All, Thursday, June 23, 2016, Mid-Afternoon Update: SOMETIMES THINGS GET ADDED THAT CAUSE PROBLEMS! Went out to do a test drive of Ms. American. She started right up, and was running so nice. Pulled out of the driveway, and turned left to go to the turn-around. She was doing fine. Turned...

    Hey Tim, Well, everything WAS going swimmingly until---. Know what you mean. But, it's been so long since having gone anywhere, it's not like it used to be. Used to just love to go driving. In fact, when I was just a little kid, one of the things that my mom&dad used to say was: "Let's go for a...

    Hey Mr. MJ. You doing all right? Oh, if only it was cool! :) Everything would be so much easier. BUT, the good news is: I seem to be making the adjustment to the warmer weather quite well. Have noticed that the T-Shirts are not getting as wet as they were a week or so ago. Am hoping for a mild...

    Hey All, Thursday, June 23, 2016, Morning Update: WOOHOO! MS. AMERICAN SEEMS AS HAPPY AS A CLAM IN SALTWATER! Removed the 4100's Hot Idle Screw Spring. Went through the start-up routine. The 3.14 fired up without hesitation. She is still a little tempermental about warming up without...

    Hey Ross, As has EVERYONE! "Grumpy"? :) Now that the "hang" of all this is finally being gotten, am going to be a bit more confident, and a bit more discriminating. All in all, everything seems to be working out quite well. We'll see in the VERY near future. Fed the Felines and took my meds a...

    Hey Mr. GZ, You don't use "Facebook"? Me either. BTW, has anyone noticed how SLOW FMF is running. There a commercial website that loads stuff BEFORE loading the Thread, and THAT commercial website is REALLY slow. Seems like it's taking forever. JC

    Hey Mr. T, :) Usually the Diaphragm will work for a while, but they dry out and then when pressed back into service will crack. If that happens, it may put gasoline into the Oil Pan. !!! GREAT! And finally, someone who knows how to spell Voila! :) But you DID put Gas in the Gas Tank at first? If...

    Hey All, Wednesday, June 22, 2016, Late Afternoon Update: NOT TODAY...: It is just too hot to be out. It will not be cool enough to work outside till tomorrow morning. Will be out around 7:30 a.m. for tomorrow's Timing Curve Mapping, as there is nothing else that needs be done before...

    Hey Mr. T, Did you put NEW gas in the Gas Tank? If "yes", did you check to see the condition of the inside of the Gas Tank? If the vehicle had a full or partially filled tank of Gas when it was last run over thirty years ago, there is undoubtedly residue in the Gas Tank from the evaporated...

    Hey Tim, The Nuts were already as tight as necessary. Just felt them with the Wrench. Didn't have to do anything. BUT, we got some results with the Idle Mixture Screws PRE-SET to 1.5 turns out. It was GREAT feeling, sounding, running, and etc. We're closer! JC
