Jump in Revs / engine question
So im working through a few things with my 69 and the drive train has been a little - interesting - to say the least. there are a few things i need to work on;
first being the fact that it smells a lot like fuel, more than I'd expect. I'm pretty sure there arent any major leaks anywhere. Is it possible that one or more cylinders aren't firing properly? also could it be a lack of compression? its a fairly powerful 351w with (what should be) 9.1:1 compression.
Next, when i put my foot a bit more on the gas (at around 20-30 mph) there is sometimes a sudden jump in revs until i release and then give it more gas. I think this could be the gear slipping (C4 auto transmission) but I have noticed quite a bit of wheel spin at times. Is there any easy fix for wheel spin? I intend on getting the gearbox looked at in a few weeks.
thanks! all suggestions / comments welcome
