Default Wooo...Hooo It runs!!

Hey Guys...

Guess what? It runs after replacing the fuel pump, strainer and filter... It runs and reasonably well too!!

Only thing I cant figure out is it seems to idle pretty fast? How can I turn down the Idle Speed? Or is it controlled by the computer?

It got really hot too... Found out the radiator is plugged. So Im doing that tonight!! Man the radiators are inexpensive, only 127.00 brand new!! Already have new thermostat, hoses and now new radiator and cap... Hopefully we will be good as far as overheating is concerned....

Thanks again for all the help with everything!!

You guys are awesome!!

Check your manifold vacuum....... should be about 20 inches..
A vacuum leak will cause high idle...and an over-lean mixture will run hotter..
