Re: Them Ford engineers knew their stuff!

Yes, the engineers do actually test and think things out. In your case it may have just been the cap that caused the problem and not the shorter neck. Who knows.

Re: Posting pictures

I think the real question should be, how do you make a larger picture file less than 500 Kb ? That's the issue for my dumb butt anyway.

Re: How to tag a swapmeet ad SOLD

The problem is, you can only make comments (like sold) on the last entry. That's the only place where there is the option to edit, so if anyone looks at your ad, they would have to scroll all the way...

Re: Short Trip In The Merc

I think that's pretty normal when idling with the lights on. Generators don't put out much until the RPM is higher.

Re: Vapor lock or not ?

If your issue is vapor lock, it isn't really a carburetor condition. It's from heat in the fuel supply lines or fuel pump that boils the fuel and the fuel pump can't push it anymore.

Re: IS it the carb adjustment OR the spark plugs

If they are black and shiny/wet looking it could be oil. See if they smell like burnt oil.
Maybe clean all the plugs and run it for a while to check again.
