its a delicate balance between the MCS lean/rich stop settings
Idle Air Bypass setting,, and the Idle Mixture Screws..
cant remember any of those settings, how many turns on each..
but youll need a Dwell Meter to test it all..
you set the idle MCS Duty Cycle at 15% or so for a baseline
and check/test the fast idle [3000 rpm] duty cycle at 25-35% ..
I think, sort-of.. maybe.. IIRC
on a normal Qjet you start about 2 turns out on the Mixture screws,,
but I have to get the book out every time for the E2's, E4's ..
I;m looking for my book, it's probly at my brothers,,
last place I used it, a year or 2 ago,, maybe ??

I have an 86' with I believe a 79' 350 and the oil pan gasket is leaking. My question is... can I drop the pan enough to change this while installed? What's the easiest/fastest way to fix properly. And if the pan can be pulled out enough should I change out oil pump or anything else while I'm...
64 Elco with a (suspected) 69 305ci. Getting at best about 2 seconds of crank then nothing. Usually just get a click, sometimes nothing. Maybe 1 out of 50 tries it will start. Replaced starter, solenoid, positive battery cable, alternator (probably unrelated). Battery good and have been keeping...
First post here as I recently (yesterday) acquired a 1981 El Camino Conqista with a 305 and a 3 speed auto. Diving head first into tinkering and getting this thing fixed up! First order of business is I want to get all the interior gauges working (especially water temp). So far I...
