    Sitting on top of one of the pumps at work, in the shade with a nice breeze blowin' in the summer heat. Off to the north I see a large airplane flying at a very low altitude. It gets closer and closer and larger and larger. When it got to the inhabited part of town it turned to give me a better view. :wtf:. THAT'S THE SPACE SHUTTLE! It was out for a cruise from Edwards AFB with it's 747 mule. :lol:

                    Evening all.

                    so worked down my list of things to check.

                    I replaced all the vacuum caps, there was one with a crack.

                    took ether and sprayed around the carb base, found the adapter plate was leaking between it and the intake, removed it all, took a wire wheel to the top of the intake and knocked all the page and rust off, torqued it down and then added a 3/4 inch open plenum spacer just to make sure the butterflies were not hitting anything, even though they didn’t appear to be. Secondaries are a bit stiff in movement but they do move.

                    relocated the choke wire to a full 12 V, it’s now opening and closing fully.

                    Also managed to run a remove starter via a 6 ft jumper wire to the starter so I move around the car and under the hood.

                    oil pressure is about 45 steady while cranking, climbs to 65 the few seconds it fires.

                    All that above helped me get the revs down from nearly 4K, however, I still can’t solve the fact it dies within a second or two of letting go of the key.

                    I put in a new ignition switch, and ballast resistor, no change.

                    Ran a direct wire to the coil from the battery, no change whatsoever there.

                    I turned down the electric pump down to 5 psi. Didn’t help or change anything.

                    It’s like it cuts the electrical power as soon as the starter is released.

                    Is there a ground between engine and body? Curious is all.
