Hello Justin,
Good to see you back. Call a local dealership and ask them who they use for engine rebuild work. Since none of the dealerships have a machine shop, they outsource engine and transmission work. The first step in any overhaul is to disassemble all the parts and clean them. - Dave

Default Going slow

Found myself to be very busy since i got back i have the motor stripped down and ready to be pulled out. I was wondering though when taking the ac unit out. Where is the best place to disconnect the hoses for it. They are on the unit pretty good and right now it is just sitting there i would like to have it off prior to pulling the engine out i can see it fighting me when i go to pull it out. So is there a trick or a secret i am missing.

On my cleaning project I took them off at the pump as well as the radiator... One of them took some serious grut for sure. Pick up some flare nut wrenches they will come in handy other places like brake work! They help to keep you from rounding fittings.

Is your AC system charged with any R12??

Red face old trick dad was shown in 1963

AT IDLE if you pull off the vacuum advance hose , the rpm should not drop
more than 25 rpm. if it does you need to close throttle more .
This lets engine stall/die . lease idle screw alone. ajust for more air.
remore 4100 carb ,turn over . 1/8" from the idle air bleed slot drill a
1/32 inch hole int the plate , center pop this. so drill dont walk.
next move inboard again 1/8" again center pop for another hole
again 1/32" in dia. clean with carb cleaner, reinstall carb. Next ,
thier is alot to be said for the factory vacuum advance. if you got one
take out all washers, drive car on hot day. if it pings yet starts good
add a washerto kill pinging. if it dont start easy reajust initial adv.
note car should have sweet exhaust note.
