Any updates on the DP shop? I am thinking of maybe checking him out soon...

Re: DB performance...

I have been wondering how this shop does as far as work on Classic Stangs. I drive by quite often and see alot of late model cars. I am off work tomorrow, so i will go by and talk with him.

Yeah.. didn't get to drop by and check out the place. I'm off today, maybe I can get by there later.


I live in the Michigan Park area, and I haven't been driving it too often as I have been working a lot and haven't had the time. I usully try to drive it a couple times a month. I almost always wind up on Turnbull Canyon road and Hacienda Bl in La Habra heights

Thanks for the concern, but I am definitly not getting crazy with the Mach 1. The tires are too old for that. Also way too much traffic, hard to go fast if you want to.

Getting the car ready for next months MAA drive. It's dumping fuel into the secondaries. Tried adjusting the float already. It can idle now, but I'm going to have him look at it anyway.
The bad thing is, he says a new carb is about the same price as to rebuild it??
But it's only a year or two old. Granted it's been sitting for over 8 months without starting. But the last 650 DP I had replaced was over seven years old without a problem. And that's with the same storage as I do now.
Are the new carbs just junk?? I think I'm going to have him rebuild this one instead. Maybe the rebuild parts are superior to a new carb. Cause one or two years out of this one isn't right.
But maybe it's just gummed up inside, and needs a thorough cleaning! We'll see.
The 45th Anniversary is just around the corner!

$$$$$
His is NOT a roller dyno. removes rear wheels to attach to the hubs. You NEED bungs in your exhaust for hook up.
