Stalling. Restarts Is it the heat?
I just finished putting new plugs, rotor and cap in on my Type LT. The weather here in Oregon has finally started to look like summer. I am getting stalling issues. when I run around town everything is fine... then I stall while moving in traffic. Pull to the side. Pump the gas twice (pray), and crank, no start. OR crank, start and stall after giving it my beat acceleration massage. After a few minutes of this I master the feathering of the throttle and head for the refuge of my driveway. It is 100 degrees here today; but I need reliable wheels. I pulled the fuel line at the banjo of the 1406 Edelbrock and cranked the engine- lots of fuel! I pulled the 1406 carb and reset the floats 7/16" and 15/16" hanging. Cleaned the rods, blew out the mixture screws and checked for vacuum leaks. I am ready to replumb the fuel lines. I picked up a Edelbrock 8190 Fuel pressure regulator.
Question: Now what? It did not come with any installation instructions- none found at Ed.com. All it came with is a packet of screws/lock washers (2 each) No info as to where to place it in the line- or how (one INLET- 2 OUTLETS). Does anyone run this regulator- got a photo you can post? What in hell are the scres/washers for?
I am not sure if this is/has been a carb issue or a pressure issue (too much) or a vapor lock due to summer heat?
