I use to do group orders, and I think I ordered a few of them with some other stuff from John.

You have to be beyond anal with these cars and incredibly patient. I always had the patience for my GN...but very little for humans.

Steve...does John Spina not sell a 'special' bulb for the alternator light. Think it was to keep the alternator charging?

Steve, if you haven't done so...clean the grounds. I did mine every spring. I also replaced the negative and positive battery cable. I never had any electrical issues. As wire gets older...it builds up resistance...a nd if the grounds aren't perfect...you'll run into all kinds of issues.

P.S. Steve's the electrical wizard. He might be able to connect the dots as to why low voltage could cause a stumble. I just know it can, cuz I ran into that with a couple of TR's. Not very scientific...s orry.

Something's horribly wrong. Here's the worst combo...suppos edly...on the planet I had in my Z28. I slid a bigass cam in it to give it the 'sound'. Stock torque convertor, 3;23 gears, dual plane intake and a 600 vacuum secondary Holley and stock heads and true dual exhaust. Jetting was out of the box, and all I did was set the idle screws. How did it work? It blew the tires off it the entire length of the grandstand. I jumped the initial timing a couple degrees and that was it. It's the one car I wish I hadn't sold.

Steve's one of the best. I wish I had 1 millionth of his knowledge.

If it has a cat convertor...it may be melted/clogged causing off idle bog. Seen a couple like that. Gutted them...all was well.

Do you mean the voltage drop on the brown wire? Also do you think the slightly low voltage could be causing the engine stumble?
Jeremy alluded to that in a previous post about the stumble.

Jeremy is correct. Full voltage or all kinds of shit goes on.

Wouldn't surprise me if that was a major issue wmsonta is referring too. I know 2 of the locals who had Stage cars with the cams retarded. Their cars were turds. I mentioned if they had checked, but I was told I didn't know anything.

Put boost to it again with not enuf volts for the fuel pump and it'll be down needing head gaskets.

I agree with Ed. Stay away from the 'cool guy' stuff...and let 'er drain.
