Re: cold mornings
Bloke @ work here maybe had the same problem but in a holden 6 motor. He reckons that his car use 2 run like s#^%*t on cold mornings, because the air temp was so cold, it was causing condensation in the manifold, and he could see it in there (dunno about a v8 manifold though). He reckoned that once he had the car going for a bit, he’d turn it off and then restart it, and he found that it would be smooth as. How he got around this problem was to make a ‘hotbox’ out of aluminium and build it around his extractors and run a hose from the top of the box 2 his air filter. This made the air that was going into the carby warm. If you get real tecky you could then make a valve in your air filter (depending on what filter you have of course) and hook it up to a thermostat so you can have a winter/summer job. He found out about this from some dude, who said that old fords (70’s models) had the same problem…….. Dunno man, I’ve never had it myself, I’m only going off what he said.
