Well I came home this morning after 24 hours duty and went and got the T-Bird and did some small things to her. She was running so rich she would leave black carbon tracks wherever she would go, (Check out the pic) So after adjusting the floats and rich/lean screws she takes off strong with no hesitation, and no more black piles of carbon :) I also had to replace the CVR, the one from ebay didnt last long, so I went with the $1 7805 from radio shack, the same kind I have been using in my Dodge for a year. Now I have fuel and temp gauges again.

So with an 80 degree day we took Beatrice out for the evening. Out to eat, car parts store and Sonic for ice cream. My wife is very happy with her new paint and how she runs, plus getting compliments from other people like "Beautiful car" and "Nice ride" I told my wife to get used to that. Finally we are enjoying our ride, now off to the show Saturday.

Running rich, just rev the car and you get 2 black piles of carbon.
