Need part or part number for 79 pinto carburetor power valve
« on: December 12, 2011, 05:15:50 PM »
As the  title says I need a power valve for my 79 pinto. 2.3L automatic, fed emissions. If anyone has a book that shows the part number for it that would work too.

I'm running my car completely without a power valve and it runs great but the mileage is crappy. I blame it on running it without a power valve. Not sure what size the threads are to be able to put a plug in it either.

I think the car is making 13mpg at the most maybe even less. Runs great tho and has lots of power.
