    Well took half the day for me to figure it out and I still don't know if it's correct but I think I got it working. The second photo page has been added. It didn't have enough pictures for what I wanted to do and I got in there cutting and pasting in the editor and I think I got it right but let me know if it messes up. This is some pics of what my truck looked like when I got it.

    WOW!![​IMG] That is rust from hell! I hope I don't see that when I pull my carpet. I like those nerf bars that double as air tanks.

    I have looked at it. I like the background. I'm a bit new to this so haven't figured it all out. One thing That I noticed in your history thing is I believe the first SUV was a GM. I believe the Carry all (later changed to subburban) was the first true SUV. Site looks good. Grab a pic off my site if you like for the readers section. I'd love to see my truck on your site also.

    Hey Grim,
    From all the Blazers and Jimmies I've seen, I like yours the most seriously. I like old, rusty, scratched, dented Blazers. I think they are a lot better than shiny new looking ones. I read that jeep made the firs SUV in some 4x4 mag but they might be wrong.

    Hay Mule I just looked at your site. Looks good and I forgive you for saying I "You've done an awful job!" hahaha I think that was a Typo LOL. I saw on your site you said something about a Carb problem and a brake booster problem. Have you stuck a vac gage on that booger? It sounds to me like a low vacum problem to me since you having run and booster problems. At idle you should see 17-20 hg in vac. If your under that the carb can't run right and it will not have the vac needed to power the booster. Only other reason for low vac would be a ragical cam but I didn't see where ou made any mods like that.

    Grim,
    I'm terribly sorry for this typo. But german being my mother tongue, sometimes I do not find the right words. Now I checked my dictionary (should have done that before) and found out what I really wanted to say:

    [] bodacious
    [] brillant
    [] capital
    [] excellent
    [] grand
    [] great
    [] great
    [] magnificent
    [] splendid
    [] superbly
    [] swell

    (please select & check the appropriate term [​IMG])

    As far as I can see it, my carb and my booster are two seoerate problems, which are influencing each other. I had a Holley, which obviously had done it's time: hg was somewhere up in the sky ('bout 180, I think), idle was unstable and impossible to adjust. The air-gas ratio was going from rich to lean and backwards right by it's own. On monday I got my new Edelbrock #1406. It's running fine, but on the tester I could see that the carb is leaning down significantly when You hop on the brake. This being the sign for a torn membrane in the booster, I was told. Sounds logical to me, but if You've got some other idea for me I would be greatful.
    Hey, I had a heck of a good time with the old carb and the booster: Imagine Yourself driving in roush hour city traffic with hardly working brakes and then the carb is leaning down, the booster is multiplying that and finally - the engine stops - no power brakes, no power steering. That's where I got my adrenaline from! [​IMG]
    Sorry again for the typo and thanks for Your Help!
