Hey guys. Have had my 1973 Mustang Mach 1 for approx 10 years. Last couple of years I have been really busy with my new family and have barely had any time to take it out at all. It seems to have issues with Timing and Carb (Runs real rich).
I used to take my Mustang to Classic Car shops in the past for stuff like this but they have gone under. I am pretty mechanically inclined but more towards the newer stuff, but eager to learn.
Here are the specs on the Car.
1973 Mustang Mach 1
351C Q code 4V .30 over bore
Aftermarket Comp Cam
Long Tube Headers
3.0 inch exaust with Flowmasters
Holly 750 Double Pumper
4.11 Rear end
I have included some pictures at the bottom of this post showing some of the specs of the items in the vehicle.
Basically I need help setting the Carb and the Timing. I have never done the timing and will be buying a timing light. Do I set it at Idle and what degree's do you guys think would work and how do I actually do it.
The Car runs rich as well and would like some help with tuning the carb.
I apprecate any and all help you guys could give me. Again, I have a young family and cannot really afford a shop so trying to learn and figure this stuff out on my own. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...816_184045.jpg https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...816_184408.jpg
