Ok, so I am new here, but I am not new to this truck. I have a 1985 Chevy Scottsdale C30. This thing is a pig, and acts accordingly. I've been all over this truck since I got it a year ago and my head has been itching over it so much that I've developed a balled spot. That said, the title explains it. I can't get this thing to surge here in the driveway, at all... period. and the only way I can test my "fixes" is to drive outa my subdivision to the local stretch and romp on her, which is where she decides to conform to her true nature; a no good, fumbling, bucking, squealing pig that wants to do anything BUT what I ask from her. Here's what I've done so far.
-New Mechanical fuel pump
-Cleaned out the gas tank
-plug wires, and plugs
-checked timing.... over and over again.
**cant find a true VIN CODE M Emmisions label for this truck.
-New coil, cap, rotor, ignition module
-HAVE NOT REPLACED DISTRIBUTOR
-Tested pick up coil... Checks out ok.... hmmm...
-Checked timing slack by watching rotor when turning crank by hand... no sign of significant slack.
-Drilled out fuel mixture screw covers... adjusted and adjusted... and adjusted.
-Checked vacuum advance mechanism for operation... yeah, it does.
-egr... oh yeah, the egr is there, but all ALL other emission stuff removed by previous owner.... pfft, fool.
-A/C system removed as well
-Cheap reman 63amp alternator put in place. tested yesterday at local dumbnut parts store... they say its fine.
-New PCV valve... yeah, I went there.
Now, my thing is, when I stomp the gas. it acts like it starts to rev up, the rev disappears and reappears several times, but not consistenty. the harder I push the gas the more pronounced it is. but it doesn't change a bit. It just does not like more than half throttle at all. and I'm lucky to get half throttle most of the time.
Please get me outa the pig farm. it stinks in here!
