Ok, we found the problem with the mpg issue. I havent tested it yet,
but im positive I had a major problem. When I reasembled the carb, the
two fuel rods didnt slide into the jets. They glanced off to the side and
bent. I knew that engine wasnt working right! I didint have a timing
gun, so I timed it by ear. It was at about 12 BTDC. Coulnt tune my carb
at all, no wonder.
So once I get that sorted out, the truck should wotk fine. As long as
you watch your guages and dont pound on her to much, bored 60 over is a
good torker. Keep up on your oil changes and keep the redlining for
special occasions and that motor will last me 10 yrs.
