Re: 63 monza build

I rebuilt the carbs over the weekend and adjusted the accelerator pump by the book and also found the choke pull off is bad on one carb. I adjusted the two carbs by ear and it idles so much smoother and doesn't bog and die if you give it to much gas to quickly. after driving it to work for the last ...

Re: 63 monza build

So I actually got the car out today and drove around. It doesn't idle well in gear and when you go to take off you really have to ease into it or it dies. After checking timing and plugs, I found 135 were a bit on the rich side, the adjustment on that carb didn't effect the running of the engine at ...

Re: 63 monza build

At the edge of the headliner near the top of the door there is no trim piece, so I'm not sure where to glue it. Looks like I'll stretch it to the pinch weld and glue there then trim and get something to cover the pinch weld at the door opening in the photo. Let me know what you guys think. Also I'd ...

I forgot to get pictures of the process so when I make them for the rear I'll take some pictures. But I did do a better job on getting pictures of ...
