Hey everyone! i just got my first jet boat! a 1973 Tahiti with a 455 olds and a berkeley pump!
I'm new to the whole carburated engines thing and i can't seem to get it running right. One thing i noticed is there is no vaccuum line running from the carb to the distributor (its an HEI) Is this a bad thing?
I figured it needed it so i put one one, now i have to re-time the engine but i can't even get it to idle anymore. Its backfiring into the carb. Even when i unplug the vacuum line (not having changed anything else) its not running right anymore....any help is appreciated!!
