Ok- so I fired up the engine Saturday for the first time since Nov. 2002. Of course youall may know it's no-longer fuel injected etc.etc.
Problem 1- After adjusting the valves (instructions provided by Crower) and thinking I had stabbed the dist. correctly and setting it it up, here's what it does. It cranks over and starts QUICKLY but idles up to about 1300 RPM and ands runs for a little bit and then dies off- as the engine comes to a stop it blows fuel out of the Demon Carb. The regulator is backed off to it's minimum setting and it's still showing 8psi on the fuel- I cannot get it any lower. I don't have a decent timing light and not sure where the timing is- whether or not I've stabbed the Mallory dist. a tooth off or not.
Any thoughts on this?
Problem 2- I have the electric choke running off the ignition on 12V+ switch. The instructions say to run this off a switched 12V+ power wire- it doesn't specify if that wire should be hot at all times when the ignition is on or whether it should be on a toggle switch of some sort.
Problem 3- The driveshaft no longer fits. The 4L60E tailshaft yoke will not push in all the way into the 700R4 tranny which I "thought" was the same with the exception of the freaking electronic shifting. The yoke is shy about 1.25 to 1.5 from slipping in all the way- what gives? Is the yoke different on the '91-'93 trucks vs the '95 to '98?
I'm seriously getting disgruntled and bummed out getting this bucket running.
