Today I reviewed my inventory of paint products and made a list of what I need.  I want it all in stock so when the time is right I can prep, mix and spray.  I went to NAPA and placed my order.  They had everything except for the quart of FP 410 Primer/Surfacer.  That will be in Monday.  Afterward I went home and sanded the dash, glove box door, and ash tray.  They are all but ready for epoxy and black paint.  I may spray them with a few coats of primer/surfacer before the paint.  Tomorrow I will do the final prep on the rear inner quarters.  They will then be ready for epoxy.  I made lists of which parts and assemblies need which coatings so I can be organized and not have to re-mix any products.  I'm sure something will be forgotten but if I can keep that to a minimum, that will be a win.

General Help- Ask the Experts... / What is This Part?

I can't remember where on the car this came from.  The pic below may be upside down.  It appears I cut some spot welds to remove it.  It doesn't seem to fit on the trans hump.  Not wide enough to fit over the hump.  I'd like to know what it is and where it came from on the car so I can decide if I need it or not.  Thank you in advance.

Things like that are SO 70's-80's emissions or drivability compensating. If the latter it might be helpful. That said it might not. Easy enough to remove and see which works best.

So I decided to fix this hot idle compensator and stick it back in. When I went over my pics I saw that it was in a normally closed position. I bent the arm so that it was back to normally closed. There is a tiny adjustment screw underneath that can contact the bimetallic spring, I adjusted that so the spring was just touching the upper spring that holds the check ball. My theory is with enough heat the bimetallic spring will push up and allow a vacuum leak.

From a member on The Ranger Station;

"It's a hot idle compensator, when the bimetal spring gets hot enough it flexes and allows a little air in to lean out the mixture. I don't think eliminating it will gain you anything but it also probably won't hurt anything. Run it a while and see how well it idles when the engine is hot, if it seems too rich you can stick it back on pretty easy."

Put the carb together for my 1977 Pinto. Wasn't difficult but the choke system was a bit of a head scratcher. I think I got it tho.
However, there was a piece on the back of the carb that I've never seen before. I decided to delete it as from what I could figure it would be a major vacuum leak. It doesn't have bi-metallic springs. It seems like it might be some kind of pressure relieving device. Its connected to manifold vacuum directly under the throttle plates.

Yep, 2150 is what I think came on the mid-70's cars.  Emissions 2100.

V6-2. 8l. I believe its a 2100 or 2150. That's what the carb kit is for based on the tag found on the carb.

That came out nice!  Is that carb from the V6 car?  Is it a 2350 emissions carb?  Looks like my 2300.
