To Do List for my 1979 Chief

Happy new year to all of you!


Is it allowed to ask my questions to different themes in one Thread?
It would be simplier for me to follow your answers or links to former contributions.



regards.

wincher.

You can do whatever is easiest for you. We're not horribly strict around here.

Carburetor: bought a nearly new 1406 edelbrock. but I am a victim of a ebay scammer
paid for it but no shipping of the carb.!! Happy new year!
visited the police station yesterday...
have to check my carter AFB 625cfm carb

Ignition Timing:
have to check the timing. Strobe lamp is availlable.
(My grandpa, father and now my brother have a garage since the 1960 years...)
Timing 10 degrees at idle with the barrel number 1?
Change to a MSD Ignition??
Vacuum Unit?? Distributor ??

No Kickdown
No wire from the Detent Switch to the transmission existing.
And adjustment availlable: Pedal - detent switch


Adustment of the gear linkage.
gearshift lever doesnt fit to quadrant dial. with lever max to right transmission is in 2 and not in 1 gear.


Fuse panel
looks awful and not original.
with wore patched fuses...

mine looks different to this in the manual



Exhaust Manifold
probably broken an the right bank over the heat valve.
prabably the screws get over tighten ..
A friend has maybe a intact manifold an knows a good welder

Fresh Air
No Bowden cable existing. and no duct control switch.
