I'm running AC/Delco plugs. What I was saying with my last post is that the gap (at .060) seems to have cleaned up the misfire and the right side needle on the carb I adjusted in because I could visually see it ran way out compared to the other needle. The distributor has no vacuum to it, it runs on weights. The truck ran fine on Monday as well. I may have had shytty gas too. When the plug gaps were at .045 it ran like crap.

x2 what Paul said... gaps are too wide...

Carb- if you're stumbling after long pulls but OK while getting "to" the end of the long pull, like we discussed at the Unevent-it sounds like fuel supply...

P/S hose...just buy an AN to metric adapter for your Yoda stuff. That's what I did back in the last century-been working great since.
BTW, if anybody needs Yoda strg stuff, ported boxes, etc....shoot me an email. It's all on the auction block.

Tom, check your pm...

So if my gaps are too wide, whyz it running better AFTER the opening up of the gap?

I dunno... maybe the same reason that it runs GREAT sometimes and not other times....


...totally unrelated! Maybe if they were gapped at .045" it'd run like a raped ape...

They were at .045 before and it ran like a fat kid leaving a ding dong factory.

Just read a couple threads where guys had better luck with smaller spark plug gaps - when they went up to .045 they started having problems with spark jumping from the wires- more resistance to jump the gap . But again ; I read this on the internet which is surprisingly full of misinformation . Shocked Smile
You said something about a fuel delivery issue ? you running an electric fuel pump ? if so is it a rotary vane type ? they commonly cause fuel delivery issues on a Bronco.

That was my thought last summer at the Unevent...fuel issue...whether it's a cracked fuel line or carb or pump...several symptoms suggesting fuel supply...

....my friend, we thought they'd never end...we'd sing... (well, I don't remember all the lyrics!) maybe that was just at some campfire after a case of "Spring Water"... : )
