    Date Installed
    Apr. 1, 2010

    Installed 04/01/2010

    This was installed by Marselli Precision Automotive in South Windsor CT. I oversaw the install, and the big issue was using new gaskets. The carb was purchased on eBay as NOS from 1983, and the base gasket supplied with the carb had dried out. They had trouble getting the engine to run smooth, but traced the problem to a major vacuum leak at the base plate on the intake manifold. A new gasket solved the problem.

    This was pretty easy install aside from removing the headlight switch/gauge bezel lock. I tapped the screws into the dash, cut a slight relief well into the dash bezel, and ran the temp sensor and oil pressure feed line though at the speedometer grommet, cutting out a small amount for the lines.
