Concerned with excessive engine noise; this ’67 Camaro came in to have a look at and see what the issue was. Removing the valve covers revealed a rocker stud backing out of the block; and a couple vavle springs needed adjustment. A slight adjustment to the idle and the car is much more responsive and quieter as well.

We’ve got you covered. We repair, rebuild and tune carburetors. This 1984 Ford F150 came in this week with a no start condition. Customer was installing this Holley 850 and couldn’t quite get it finished up.
Upon inspection when it arrived, we found the crankcase full of fuel. When we did get it to fire the engine shot fuel out of the dip stick tube. After removing the carb we found the floats were stuck just dumping fuel into the cylinders. After cleaning up the carb, changing the oil and filter, reinstalling the carb, found the throttle cable too short holding the throttle at 3000 RPM. New throttle cable and choke cable later this one is running again. She still needs some tuning but she’s running again.
