Hope you all can help. I keep a 73 suburban at the lake to pull the boat around with. Small block, T-350, 4 wheel drive. Absolutely Bugly but pulls the boat great in 4 low w/ the hubs unlocked mostly. Original Mustard Yellow and White color scheme with lots of rust thrown in to add style.
Hence his name, "Coronel Mustard". It just fits.
The Colonel scared the crap outta me, this past weekend.
We have and extremely long Ramp/road and an even steeper drive way that's more than 130 yards long. Pulled great for 4 years. On Saturday, while about 2/3's the way up the drive way, The Colonel coughed for a sec, then took off again. Not a backfire, more of a really long miss...about 1 sec or so (eternity when on this driveway!!), then he came back and continued up the driveway..
I was thinking fuel.. I put 15 gallons in incase it was a pick up issue. Next day did the same thing at about the same place... Still suspect fuel. Runs good rest of the time.
Has an Edelbrock 600 (or so..) carb on it. Is there a fuel filter inside the carb (right after the fuel inlet)??? Checked the E'brock site and didn't see any mention in the FAQ's or the main screens.
If not any other ideas?
P.S... Just looking at spelling of Coronel and realize that ain't right,but I don't know what is...
Feeling kinda stoooopid.
2nd edit. Bugging me, so I looked up spelling.. Colonel.. Hmmm.. Where's the "r"??..Feel better now..
