  1. Seafoam Use - does it work?

    Camaro Tech
    Might buy some of this product to clean carbon deposits from my fuel system. Car is dieseling really bad. Watched a youtube video about the use of Seafoam in the gas tank as a treatment and sprayed down the carb. Will it cure my dieseling problem?
  2. Help with build: 1968 Camaro SS Restomod

    Restoration Corner
    Hello everyone. I've purchased my '68 Restomod a year ago when I was in NY from a dealership who bought it from the original customer. The dealer had no idea what was done to it. Honestly, I'm not experienced in 1st gen camaros (more into modern jap cars) but here is what I know about mine...
  3. Cowl induction hood: max air cleaner size?

    Engine
    Has anyone had any luck running a 16" or 18" air cleaner with a steel cowl induction hood? I'm switching over to a Dominator carb and you can only get a drop base with the larger filter sizes. I'm interested in hearing if anyone else has looked into this and hearing how you solved the issue...
  4. Running rich?

    Engine
    Hey guys. Bought a crate motor about a year ago for my project car. The car always seems to be a work in progress and I'm learning as I go and doing the work myself, but the one thing that continues to elude me is timing/carb tuning. I'm assuming it's running rich because the whole "eye-burning"...
  5. Stalling out, carb or something else?

    Engine
    Hi, new member! Car has a 350 – auto, lightly modified. Car will idle for roughly 5 minutes, then just dies, doesn't bog down, no change in rpm, just quits. Last time car was driven (about a week ago), ran and drove fine for 2 minutes, died and backfired when attempting to restart. That's...

    Engine
    Hi All, I just finished installing a new Edelbrock 7501 Air Gap intake, it is replacing an old Edelbrock C3BX manifold. The intake went fairly smooth and as expected.

  7. Popping when running - timing??

    Engine
    Hi everyone, I have a 1978 Camaro Z28 with a 1974 350 LT1 that I had rebuilt in 2008. I drove the car for a while but then we moved to Texas and it only got driven or ran once in a while. Ever since I got the car back from the rebuild, it has not seemed to run correctly. It has okay power and...

    Hey guys, I've been having a problem with my '68 camaro. Basicly, I have limited power, off idle stumble, and a slight pop out of the exhaust when shifting. It takes alot to get the rpms up and seems to lose power about 4500 rpm. When idling, a distinctive stumble is heard and throttle response...
  9. Does Vapor Lock happen before the pump, after the pump, or either side

    Engine
    I think my '68 Camaro with a 350 small block is having a fuel problem. Strange because I've been driving it for 2 years and it is acting up only now - but it is a hot summer. Cuts out after it warms up, I took the carb off and both of the bowls (Edelbrock Thunder 650) were almost empty. I...
  10. Looking for a new Carburetor...Any suggestions? Help!

    Engine
    I am currently trying to get my 68'RS running properly and I need a new carb but I'm not sure where to start. I currently have an old Carter 625cfm clone and I don't think trying to refurbish it would be worth it. I also looked at the 650 Rochester Quatrajet and have heard a lot of people say...
