    If it's a dual plane manifold per "side" of the carb it will feed the front and rear cylinders on one bank and the middle two on the other. This gives roughly equal length runners.

    My one data point dis-proved your hypothesis. That's all it takes. Also my Denali doesn't have variable valve timing or cylinder deactivation. It's a relatively simple analysis to do if you remember...

    You did read the key off part didn't you?
    At low throttle openings you aren't pumping much air. At large throttle openings you pump a lot of air. Which is harder?

    With the engine off as long as it was still in gear there would have been vacuum for the power brakes. The engine need not be "running" to make vacuum just turning. Also, maximum engine braking...

    One thing to consider. If you were running rich/flooding you may have a lot of fuel in the crankcase. You should check your oil and change it if there is any question about that. Won't solve your...

    You have a fuel oversupply problem. IF you actually have fuel dripping from your carbs at the end of the test that is a physical indicator that the carb bowls are overflowing. There is only one place...

    Have you actually measured the fuel pressure instead of relying on the "setting" on the regulator?

    Nice. Stainless steel has an even lower heat transfer coefficient. Copper however has a really big one. About double that of aluminum.

    Remember that your booster will see and hold the max vacuum your engine has produced since the last brake pedal application. So when you release the throttle to begin braking, unless you pop the...

    Another consideration on the "hot" adjustment is that your valves, and really the entire head, will be a whole lot hotter running along at a constant 80 mph than simply letting the coolant warm up to...

    That's a good choice. I use Valvoline SynPower 10-30 in the Z and 5-30 in my other cars. My '81 Ford pickup gets the cheapest oil I can find and miraculously hasn't wiped its flat tappet cam yet...

    It was. Fabricated a foam brush with a wire handle to get the spots I couldn't get to. Sometimes I think it might have been easier to completely disassemble the entire unibody. Or go to CA and get a...

    I cut out a rectangle of sheet steel and bent it over a tube to form the basic shape. I overlapped the ends a little and welded it closed with a few tacks on the outside and inside. The carefully...
