    Re: Nova Build Log

    well i recently found out i need a new carb and it ***** for 3 reasons
    1. it has trouble starting now because theres no fuel getting into the carb on start up so i have to mash the pedal down sometimes
    2. it lost a hell ov alot of performance in mid and high range where it had improved from my old engine
    and 3. im ****ing broke

    so idk what im going to do my birthday is in 8 days so i might have to see how much i get from that if any and try and buy a new or used one or just buy a rebuild kit but i really want a Holly Double Pumper on dat *****

    Did you just install the engine and trans ? Sounds like the converter wasn't installed correctly and blew out the front pump of the trans .

    thats called the govenor! and i think the motor looks ok, but u shoulda kept your intake aluminum and u need to do somehting wiht your wire set, its looks bad with the wires all over the place.

    this is my 383 stroker in my 78malibu. its in and around the area of 470Hp and 500ft lbs of torque.

    You may just have a vacuum hose disconnected. Check the hose that goes from the distributor to the carb

    **** thats a nice 383 im hoping to get somthing like that or a 400sb in her in a couple of years and once i get a job imna be getting a new distributor and wires and clean them up also planing on getting a painless wire kit for her.

    and its not th vacume line that was the first thing i checked and there all conected the carbs just really old and with they way the old guy took care of the car so badly im sure he dint take care of any parts on the engine very well.
