Oh yea more info would help lol. Its a 1980 ford Pinto (the one with the trunk not (hatch back). It has a manual tranny from an 84 or 85 Ford thunderbird (Turbo coupe) 5 speed Rear axle is from a fox body mustang unsure of yearStock engine inline 4 2.3L that has a racing cam, Headers, Stock intake manifold (I think) and a 2150 motorcraft on it right now.It runs lumpy on idle almost like its going to stall but never does Runs high when letting go of gas to shift while rolling Sounds like you have a vacuum leak under the carb, Verify with vaccum gauge reading, race cams are hard to verify vacuum leaks as they read unsteady on the gauge.. Or the idle speed has been set too high to avoid stalling. running on after shutting off is a symptom of the idle mixture too rich, or the Idle set screw turned in too far to avoid stalling. This car needs a thorough baseline tuneup, before tearing down any carb. This of course is assuming the cam is timed properly with the crank & ignition.and when I turn off the car when hot it knocks or clunks yea clunks?
