    Hey guys. I’m new to the site and can’t seem to get help anywhere. I’ve got a 67 nova with the factory 194 six cylinder. It’s been rebuilt with a good size cam, HEI conversion from a square body, and a dual Weber kit from Clifford performance. I’ve drove it before and it wasn’t perfect but it...

    Wassup y’all, I have a 250 77 Concours with a Rochester electric choke 1bbl carb I’m working on. As I was adjusting the fast idle screw, I noticed the pigtail connector came off (my mistake). I bought a pack of 14 Gauge female connectors to fix the problem; however, now my “GEN, OIL, and...

    Currently looking for the approximate values of the following two items: 1) 250 cid, 6-cylinder engine. 19,5xx original miles. 100% complete, and original as far as I know (?). Pulled from the car and bolted to the stand, that's it (yes, it could use a cleaning). Turns over...

    My 1963 Nova was shooting out oil of the dipstick and PCV breathers, & drove it like this for 2 years until I did a compression test and was between 70-100 on all the cylinders. Rebuild Time. This all started 2 years ago so if you want to see part one that led up to this check out here...

    Ok so I just bought a 77 and within the last week just about every seal and gasket has failed on the 250 Inline 6 and between all the tearing everything down there seems to be one extra vacuum hose. I've looked everywhere I can think of online and under the hood and still nothing

    A little while ago, I picked up a 1973 Nova with a straight six and a three on the tree. At the moment, it runs REALLY rich. Does anyone know how to tune the factory 1bbl carbs or have any helpful diagrams of them? I'd rather not swap carbs until I at least try to get this one functioning half...
