Re: Idling issues

The high idle in neutral is what it is as long as you have 450-500 in drive at hot idle with the vacuum advance disconnected & plugged or clamped off. There is quite a difference between the two. I set my 64 110 at 500 3 years ago have not touched it since. Cannot remember what it read in neutral bu...

My 64 with a powerglide is 19 inches with a slight curve. From the tip to the full mark is 2 & 1/2 inches.

Re: Temp light on at idle

Sorry Jim I guess I should have said almost everyone. :doh: I should have posted what I thought at the time, it might have saved him some time & maybe money. I sure hope it isn't as bad as it sounds. :sad5: I agree with the part about an oil pressure gauge. I'm hoping his fan bearing just went bad.

My first thought was fuel as you say it bogs down when you accelerate, there could also be some foreign matter in a carb float bowl that clogs up the fuel supply then settles back down but when you are using more fuel at higher speed it gets pick...

Re: Losing power at highway speeds

You should check the fuel pump first. If that's OK check the electronics, coil,points ect.. Sounds like it's starving for fuel at high speeds.

Re: Temp light on at idle

In one of your late posts you said you would put your old switch in and see what happens. Well I thought your new switch was telling you something the old switch was not. Now the old switch that didn't send a signal & turn the light on seems to be the culprit that caused you some big problems. Looks...
