Customer Question
I have a 1965...

I have a 1965 Mustang with a 1969 302 motor. The problem is that when I give it gas, its really slow until it reached 20 MPH and then it goes great. Also getting to 20 MPH sometimes it dies and flames shoot from the carb. I have set the timing 6B. TDC and 6 advance with the same results. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Have you noticed any change in your gas mileage lately?

I just put the motor in. it has new rings, pistons bearings new timing chain and gears, heads had valve job. The Carb is a year old.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mustang yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I just put the motor in and just moved the distributor to what the book stated. I was told that it has bigger cam, but not that the springs needed to be larger.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
