    a guy at work has a 79 firebird he just bought and it ran sh!tty.he had the carb rebuilt,still back fired ocasionaly and had crappy throttle response(pretty much how mine is). after changing everything he could think of it still ran the same(just like mine).some days good some not. and if it stalled it was hard to start(just like mine). so he changed the ignition module and it runs like a raped ape.going to try that soon. what do you guys think? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    You didn't put any ford parts on it did you? They have been know to transfer STDs (Start To Dismantle).

    sounds like its worth a shot, ignition modules can be really tricky, sometimes they'll work alright, sometimes they wont, usually tend to stop working when they're hot and work again once they're cool.

    here you need a flag for silver lake sand dunes, its so when your climbing the hills people climbing the hill in the other direction can see you also. most places are 6' flags, but here they are 9' flags that need to be 10' high.

    there was one point my last time there where im glad they were 9' flags because i only seen the top 6" of the flag and it wasn't far away. /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif
