Any cam with perhaps10° or more greater .050" duration than stock has greater exhaust contamination of the chamber at overlap, and reduced idle vacuum.
The amount of air admitted by the PCV is added to the air through the carburetor(s), so it affects your idle's throttle plate position w/r/t spark advance and tip-in response
The Wagner allows you to adjust these factors.
One less thing to worry about? Cheap.

I always make sure there's mechanical & chemical adhesion on engine tin, and even when I've had to use rattle-can topcoat, never had a flaking or peeling problem.

Show up at HIS bank late Thursday. Bank of America charges me $8.00 if I show up with a check from one of their customers, that irks me. They call it a "service charge".


I'm not big on being fingerprinted, only when it is a requirement!

Thank you!

That combination valve is fairly easy to re-seal. I've since ditched it but if I recall correctly, just a teflon and a couple of o-rings I sourced from a hydraulic shop. Off the shelf stuff, at least in the 90's. As long as the housing and shuttle aren't dinged or pitted...

I knew I might be being a bonehead. My problem is I look here during little short breaks during work and there's radio chatter in my ears I'm tuned to and well, there's my excuse lol. You have a '92. Got it!! So maybe soon someone will start making them for the newer trucks like yours, but it's cool that you're overcoming! up

Next time you go out and pick up after him, save it instead of tossing it in the trash. At the end of the week hang the bag of trash from the mirror or door handle of his truck while he's on his rounds. If he doesn't take the hint, escalate as above.

Thanks Rattrap. I will call ATI as well as FHO. I'll be using Andy's set up for the mount. I know Andy states FHO has shells build specifically for this situation.

I'll use the summit bucks on other items. I will let everyone know what FHO says.

I have absolutely no clue what his rates are but I feel fairly confident that it would be off the charts nuts. As in: assume at least 6 digits IF he's even willing to talk about doing a late 70s. You should have heard of a shop called Totally Auto as apparently they've gotten in deep with the Chryslers at Carlisle event. I used to live about 5 miles from their shop and tried to get them interested in working on one of my 76s. Never came out at said it point blank but they wanted nothing to do with it and I'd expect the same sort of response from this guy.

A big part of that is a niche comfort zone. Their market is full on rotisserie every nut and bolt for late 60s / early 70s Mopar muscle and that's what they know. They've got a long waiting list for that kind of work and no real motivation to stray outside of that. See also: absolutely no after market support for late 70s B bodies and generally no love for them. Finding any shop with any passion for them is a tough hunt.

Maybe check out this guy:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCbu0e3UxkDeHegJUieSskw/videos?disable_polymer=1

That channel is a full on resto of a 77 Doba and how many people have ya ever met that have done that. Looks like pretty solid work without the over head of a huge shop. The big bonus being that the guy owns a few himself, has his own parts stash and sounds like he know's exactly what he's up against when working on these things. I generally don't like paying people to learn about my cars.

Yeah, I actually bought one of those.

There's a good print out there on a jeep forum too, for diy.

I'll kick this idea around for awhile yet, it doesn't need to be solved anytime soon.

If you decide to go with leaf springs only, they will work fine, contact Greg Luneack at Tri City Competion in San Carllos(I think that is the correct town near San Diego) CA for a custom made set that will hook your car very well scope


Tri City Competition is in San Marcos, right near where I live in Vista. I called him once and his springs are pretty expensive compared to regular SS springs, cost is right up there with getting Cal Tracs but I heard they work really well.
