When I try to move I step on the gas pedal anyway.
It behaved well on the way home. It's going to get a rest tomorrow, I have to put some miles on the truck.
I've started EOCing. I'd like to install a kill switch that kills the engine without interrupting the radio (and obviously without wearing the key switch). I don't suppose you know off the top of your head how I should wire it...
If the vacuum switch on the brake pedal for the cruise control was maladjusted and constantly open, would that be a large enough vacuum leak to make the choke misbehave and the heater to only blow out the bottom?
I adjusted it last night and only drove the car in the yard but the choke's behavior seemed better. I forgot to check the heater.
Had an 80 Caprice Classic with the V6, loved it with a capital L, drove it during some of my college years. I can remember the floating ride, it was a car your could really spread out in. I think I got between 18 and 22, just feed it oil and water, super relaible, the only thing you had to avoid doing is falling asleep at the wheel due to the plush ride. Love the sound of any six cylinder engine. I do remember I had to set the choke for summer and then readjust for winter.
#1. Did the cruise ever work while you've owned the car?
#2. I assume your speedometer is working. (If it doesn't your cruise won't work either)
#3. Check to see if you have good, strong vacuum going to the unit.
If both #2 and #3 are true, then you may try adjusting the unit. You will notice the fitting where one of the vacuum lines goes into the unit is brass with a hex collar. Disconnect this line, and you can adjust the unit by tightening & loosening the fitting. Make small adjustments, only about 1/4 turn at a time.
