1966 Mustang Hi-Po Air Cleaner help
I'm new to the forum and a new owner of a 1966 Mustang Coupe. I'm new to working on cars, but i'm learning a lot fast so i'm sorry if my question is dumb...
My car has less than 500 miles on the engine rebuild and has been running great. This weekend I decided to change out the stock air cleaner/filter and put on a scott drake concours Hi-Po blue base air cleaner. Shortly after I made the change I noticed that my car started sputtering while driving and eventually it died.
I was able to get the car home and the next day it started without any problem. It drove for a few minutes before dying while in motion. I was able to pull off the road and couldn't get it started again.
It seems pretty far fetched, but i'm wondering if this is related to the change in the air cleaner. When I made the change the car did seem to breathe a little easier but I have no idea. I don't know if any adjustments should be made to the carb or what...
the second time this happened I went home and got the old air cleaner and filter and changed it out and the car started after a couple of tries and ran without any problem.
I guess its much more likely to be some kind of ignition problem, but I have no idea... any help would be appreciated. Hope i can keep learning.
