Default My Box is Exposed !!

So I start up my FireBird this morning expecting to go on a sunny day cruise.
Instead of a steady idle it rocked like a drunk running richer than Paris Hilton on Ludes.
So much fuel that the intake manifold was knuckle deep in 94 octane as it dripped off the back end.
Oh oh.....it'* only been 16 years since the fuel inlet needle and seat have been replaced.

Time for a clean up and freshening.

While I had things apart I thought you might be interested to peak at my box.


It has twin 4" pink inlets leading to a sealed 4" x 10" K&N filter.

Looks like next weekend I'll be rebuilding a Rochester 4 Barrel Quadrajet Carburator.
Third time for this one.

That should be a piece of cake for you... I've only ever taken one carburetor apart...never owned a vehicle with one
Nice box, I like it.
Should be a nice Sunday Cruiser

Spent the morning rebuilding the carb and reinstalling it.
Piece of cake and I cleaned up 16 years of dirt.

Started it up and it purred like a lion.
