I'm assuming it has an IAC of some sort. Is there some way the decay rate is different from the previous to the current? I believe you're using the same controller and don't even think it is programmable with your setup so I might be out in left field on that one. Clay

Hi Clay,
No AIC at all this is truely old tech just a screw. It is likely just a fuel issue. Too much I think. It did change behavior when I backed off on the idle and accel pump settings. Mid is the one that i think is the culprit. Just have to keep plugging. I did buy a replacement 17014 Bosch WB sensor from the local autozone yesterday with a 1 yr warranty. Should be good for a few free replacements while I'm tuning it. Twisted Evil

Sensor calibrated fine without replacing it. Going to lean out the mid setting. I think in all the excitement I might have set it incorrectly fat.

Glad to hear you're sorting things out. Are you going to make the track before it closes?

Not sure about that as much as I would like to. Tuning first with some luck who knows.

1972 Chevrolet Nova

PostPosted: Thu Oct 17, 2013 10:26 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Paul, I'm hoping to go up this Sunday to the Nostalgia race. Haven't done anything to my Nova except transmission work. I didn't do it I had Jef Lynch of General Motors fame do it over in his shop in Townsend, Ma.
My son is trying to talk me into taking off the exhaust. It's a 3 inch system and it wouldn't surprise me if it weighs close to 100 pounds. Might also take out the stock passenger seat. You might remember I've been a best of 11.07 at 123 mph. But the last time I ran it only went 11.20's. Haven't raced it at all this year. Money has been tight & I'm old Very Happy
The best to anyone who might remember me. I'll try to get back to being active on this site.

Building 700s is easy. What did he do to it? Hope it was not too $$. Since you were in townsend where I live you should have let me know you could have stopped by for a visit. My place is less than a mile south of the center. Where is this guy? Never heard of him.

Paul,
Jeff Lynch is a good guy to know. Google Jeff Lynch Hot Rod Genius. first knew of him when I went to the GM Training Center. Extremely sharp and good people too. He lives at 144 Main Street & works out of a garage beside his house. He was the go-to guy at Oldsmobile & Saturn. He has authored a number of technical books. As an author he dropped the F off his first name.
He has a 50 Chevy Pickup on a Corvette frame that runs mid 11's.

Another friend lives in Townsend. His name is Bob Merchant. He has a couple of dragsters. One is a Nostalgia piece. The other, I believe, runs Supercomp.

I should have contacted you, sorry about that Embarassed

Almost forgot, Jeff treated me extremely well. Wouldn't go anywhere else !!

Hey Jeep,
WoW. I go by his house every day. He is always selling a car there up front near the street. Funny I see that truck a lot too. Primer gray with the Corvette rims. Bet he has all the GM tools from being an instructor. Cool you got a good deal.
Still did not say what he did to it? All the usual mods I would assume?
Shit I should know these car guys in town but haven't run into them with my car so I guess we just never connected since I moved here in 97. I've been building transmissions since 86 probably not quite as long as Jeff though. As long as you are happy and motoring down the road that is all that counts.

Don't think I will make it this year to the track. We'll see though there are 2 weekends left.

Paul

Great to hear from you Jeep! Your exhaust doesn't weigh what you think it does. You can get enough out of it to get in the 10's though. I'm thinking my 2 1/2" full exhaust, passenger seat and rear seat were 110 lbs total and was worth 0.1 in the 1/4. Hope you get back to running the Nova. Clay

Stainless is lighter by at least 40%

Based on the gauge used the tech at Pypes said it was typically lighter by quite a bit. I know what I took off was heavier than what is there now.
