It's been a while but as I posted before some personal issues have kept me from doing much. (Mom died, Kids etc)
Anyway a new neighbor who is a very experienced mechanic helped me sort out this 305 .
Turns out it had several bugaboos. one was the distributor (which has been replaced with rebuilt) second
was the vacuum manifold tee was damaged (badly ripped threads and bent!) and third the tranny modulator was bad.
Also we checked everything from compression (surprisingly good) to vacuum and set the timing at 9 deg (good idle now)
All this has been fixed and it runs pretty damn good, it's tire chirping good reminds me of a friends 88' Monte SS
To prove it to myself if (because I think I need it.) I am going to post a video this weekend of me driving it just
to see how it sounds , expect a link this weekend. Anyway hope everyone is good and your B bodies too!
Here's a few pics of the new and the old parts.
This is the rebuilt distributor came from 80' 350. Everything is new except the shaft and weight mechanism
Here's the Vacuum Tee
Here's the old Tranny Modulator
And last and certainly least the old vacuum tee not sure what the heck happened to it but it did!
