Fantastic looking car, but I bet you can still find the original VIN unless your state did a really good job of removing all of the VINs from the vehicle.

Check in the places I mentioned and...

Sorry to hear about the death in the family.

That is definitely an incomplete VIN. If you can, get someone to look on the door jam plate, the driver-side dash just inside the windshield (looking...

+1

The CSRP kit is by far the better option. I have nothing bad to say about my kit at all.

I have the Ready-to-Run distributor on my 331 (289 block) with a Weiand Stealth intake a 1/2" carb spacer, and no spacer in between the carb and an aftermarket 14" air cleaner.

Depends on what fits your budget. A set of roller-tip rockers would be perfectly fine, IMO. You can throw a set of full-roller rockers on, but you won't really see any benefit, and the extra money...

I agree that you should look at the choke to make sure it's working properly. If the choke is not properly adjusted and remains partially closed when the car warms up, you'll get exactly the...

You can either pick up one of the Prestone backflush kits and flush everything out yourself, or you could take the car into a shop with a flush machine and have them do it for you.

I agree, pulling the carb and cleaning it out is probably a good idea at this point. Could be all sorts of bits of gunk floating around in the bowls, gumming up the needles and passages.

Setting aside the previous post for a minute, neither would be recommended. The problem is the 600CFM 1406.

Your engine, even at 100% volumetric efficiency @ 5500RPM, will only pull 460CFM. In...

I'd wonder about something other than the carb at this point. Your problem sounds like it's coming from somewhere else, and the money you're talking about spending could be avoided if we can solve...

What's wrong with the 2100? Autolite 2100's and 4100's are very simple, very reliable carbs that work well for stock motors.

When you build a 331, you're going to need to pick components that...

I disagree. When I did much the same thing (a long time ago), going from an Autolite 2100 to a 4100 and a Performer 289, I noticed improved throttle response and top end power.

I'd recommend a 500CFM version rather than the 600CFM. You'll get better throttle response with the smaller carb. Over-carbing is not a good thing.

If you have an automatic, you'll also need the...

Ohhh, do those go in between the handle and the shifter? If so, mine definitely doesn't have those.

I bet they dampen vibration at least a little, though. My shifter doesn't rattle, but it does...

Considering the price of a new Hurst, "reasonable" is a pretty loose term.

If you figure out a good way to mount the Hurst shift boot into your car, let me know. I haven't quite finaggled that...

I rebuilt mine when I got it, years ago. It had been sitting out in a field and was full of sand, but after some serious time scrubbing it out in a degreaser tub, it works fantastic.

Fuel out the vent holes means the bowls are overfilling. You just need to figure out why.

Either your float adjustments are way off, the needle isn't seating properly, or fuel pressure is...

I ran that cam for quite a while (until I wiped a lobe off). It's pretty aggressive for a 331, let alone a 289.

I'd bank on two problems:

1) Timing. As Gun-Jam has addressed, you need to get...

Mobil 1 does have high-zinc oil, but it's 15W-50, so it's a little thicker than most people run.

If you want a non-synthetic alternative (I'd recommend letting the engine run on conventional for...
