While it was idling in the driveway, I was checking the timing, idle, mixture...etc. and I noticed that the fan wasnt coming on. Looked at the temp gauge and it was at 250 and climbing fast! I shut it down and it started sounding like a boiler getting ready to pop....scared me half to death! Needless to say, I yank that electric fan off and put the stock fan on. Turns out, the relay had melted and wasnt working. I guess the moral of the story is.....dont fix it if it aint broke!

The car wont idle without the idle screw being all the way in and then it idles at 12-1300 rpm. I spent 4 hours today playing with the timing and got no where. I can drive it fine but cant get the idle lower than 1200 rpm and thats wayyy too high for this motor considering I have to put the brake pedal through the floor to keep it from moving at a light. The only thing I can think of is I have a large amount of water in my gas because the first carb was having problems the day after I filled it up. The guy that builds my carbs says he cant find anything wrong with the Qjet I thought had a bad accelerator pump
