Re: Chevy luv brakes

Rock auto has them, next thing is my locking hubs. The ones that are on the car do not work, and i would love to use my 4x4. Before assuming you need new hubs (which can be near impossible to find) try taking them apart, see if anything is broken or missing (the snap ring in particular). If not the...

Re: Choke issues I think

Your engine is a G200Z, try using that designation when looking for parts.
The stock carb secondary is vacuum operated, it won't open until the engine attains enough rpms to build enough vacuum.

Re: Top Speed

I already have the weber 32/36 due to the stock carb being too far gone to restore. And still not getting over 67. So the only thing I can think of right now is regearing the rear end. With 31's you think 4.56 would be a good ration to maintain highway speeds?(65-70) and what teach would work good....

Re: Top Speed

I'm coming up with 2,667 RPM in 4th with 31" tires -- somebody please check my math. Since 4th is direct drive, engine RPM = driveshaft RPM, so there's one less step in the calculation. Jack You're just a little low, since 31" tires are really 30.5" in diameter when new, 29.5" w...

Re: Top Speed

On a tach that is suitable to a 4cyl engine attach the signal wire to the distributor side of the coil, the light wire to a switched light source, the ground wire to ground. If your speedo is 10mph slow that means your stock tires were about 26 inchers, your current 31 inchers have reduced your 4.10...

Re: Choke issues I think

-"It's definitely not a float issue i checked all that when I had the carb out of the truck and cleaning it up really well" The float level is what determines the fuel level in the float bowl. If the fuel level is not correct- centered on the sight window bullseye- the float level needs ad...

Re: Choke issues I think

No fuel visible through the carb sight window or at the wrong level means the float level is incorrect, this is not a fuel pump issue but internal to the carb. This is a separate problem from the choke function but can definitely cause starting & drivability problems & needs to be corrected.

Re: Choke issues I think

It's very possible you just need to lube the moving parts. Spray everything down inside & out liberally with carb cleaner while running, turn off, then lightly lube every moving part with something like WD-40 while cycling the throttle fully. Watch for slop in the choke & throttle plate pivo...

Re: Heater Core Flow

The water valve on the 2.3 heater core is internal to the core. The valve controls the amount of water flowing through the core & is adjusted by a lever on the dash. Your valve is defective, those plastic parts that fell out were it. IF it's fully open & you can no longer shut it down there ...

Re: rear wheel bearing/parts

First off the "M75" on the option plate is the transmission, not the differential as you state. A M75 tranny is a MSG-5, which means you have an Isuzu 10-bolt rear & a 2.3L engine since you also have a VIN starting with "4JA1". This is important because rear axle assembly par...

Re: Stock air filter adapter for Weber 32/36?

http://www.carburetion.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?Part=99010.675 See if this might work, #99010.301 has a taller lip if your air cleaner clamps around the lip like a Chevy LUV. If not Redline makes similar adapters for several different Weber to stock air filters but nothing specifically for a...

Re: 270 Camshaft

Assuming you have all the emissions deleted you can run more initial advance than the stock, probably in the range of 12 degrees. Get the engine running as well as you can, gradually advance until it starts to knock under load, then back off until it quits, then check with a light to see what it is ...

Re: Running rich

Sounds like your float level may need adjusted. Some 2.3 carbs have a float bowl fuel level sight gauge on the front of the carb, if yours does the fuel level should be centered on the circle in the sight gauge. adjust by bending the stop tab on the float. Also make sure the fuel return from the mec...
