Re: Brand new Olds Toronado owner

Hi Francois, I've never owned a car that doesn't have a carburetor. All the vehicles I currently own have the dizzy advance coming out of a port on the front of the carburetor. '56 Cad, '79 F 100, '66 Toronado, '64 Galaxie 500, '76 F150. And as I recall, my '66 Mustang, '72 Monte Carlo, and '68 Cama...

Re: Brand new Olds Toronado owner

What's the CCC option? Whatever it is I'm pretty sure my car doesn't have it.

All '66 Toros have that vacuum port through the bolt in the back right corner. I don't remember where it goes on my car - maybe its for the headlights or heater vent doors? My car does not have ac either.

Re: Brand new Olds Toronado owner

Here are some crappy pictures that will probably confuse you even more. The car is at my mom's house and it would be too confusing for me to try to explain to her what to do to find the lines. Yes, the port on the top front of the carb of my car is going to the vac advance. I can't tell where the on...

Re: Brand new Olds Toronado owner

On my '66, the yellow one remains plugged.

The red does not go to the dashpot it goes somewhere up front. Sorry I don't have better pictures to follow it all the way.

The green one does appear to be going to the transmission on my car. I don't think I have a Tee in that position.

Re: Brand new Olds Toronado owner

Francois, I'll see if I have any pictures of my engine to help you. My car is currently not at home and I won't get it back for a couple weeks. I don't remember where all those lines go.

Re: 66 Fuel sender

Within a couple months of the Feds mandating ethanol gas in Atlanta 12+ years ago, the diaphragm in the original fuel pump in my '56 Cadillac swelled up and pumped only half the required amount of fuel. Fortunately, I drive my vehicles all the time so gasoline doesn't get a chance to sit around in t...

Re: 66 Fuel sender

Is it the ethanol residue that's stinking?
