Author Topic:   exhaust manifolds- red hot

After the feature last night i noticed the manifolds were glowing orange. Checked plugs and looked fine, the timing was off a little. I have little motor knowledge, so i figured this was the best place to ask. Thanks in advanced.

I put a new carb. on last week, i never had this problem with the old one.

Only things I ever saw cause it was too lean, timing too retarded or a vacuum leak. Since all you said you changed was the carb I would probably make sure the jets are right and no vacuum leak at the intake. And you said you already corrected the timing, I assume it was too slow. Good luck.

Checked the jets and for leaks. Everything is good, the timing was retarded about 13 degrees. Water temp. was also up to 220(during feature). Now that the timing is right i haven't had any problems yet. Thank You
