Glad to hear that the new carb is working out. Even though I've adjusted the mixture screws many times by feel I prefer to use a vacuum gauge to get it just right.

The first thing I would check is the U joints. If they are ok then it's most likely the pinion bearing.

Mike,

Thanks for posting the pics. Mine was on the driver side. I guess there was no rhyme or reason which side the plate with the VIN was put on.

I've also seen the VIN number stamped on the metal plate that goes between the driver seat and the rocker panel. It's covered by the carpet so it's not always visible.

You don't have to remove anything. You should be able to reach up behind the splash shield and get to the nuts with a small ratchet and extension. I believe the nuts are either 3/8" or 5/16".

I'm sure you'll be happy with the new carb. It does make a big difference in my opinion. Plus they are designed for todays' fuels where the old Autolite wasn't.

He said he's getting power on the orange wire with the switch on high but not on the red wire with the switch on low. That indicates a switch or wire problem, not a ground problem at the motor.
