I Desided to Go For a Smaller Van. Thanks To My JestersCC Buddy Rinus
I Came Across His Old 1975 Ford Chateau Club Van. It Has Some Cosmetic
Work and Lots Of Small Bits In and Out That I Need To Get To.
But Hey... It's a Cool 70's Potential Shag Van😉
I Like It... and Feel Motivated 🤘
When I Got It, It Wasn't Shifting Correctly, First Shift Came Early and Second and Third Took A While and Where Inconsistent.
Found Out That The Vacuum Hose To The Transmission Vacuum Modulator Was Diconnected... So Put That Back On.
It Shifts Okay Now But Maybe A Bit To Quick,
So I Think I Have To Crawl Under It Again To See If It's a Adjustable Modulator... If So, I'll Try...
With a Flat Blade Screw Driver You Can Turn The Screw On The Inside of the Modulator... End Clockwise = To Raise the Shift Points and Also Will Firm Up the Shifts. Turn the Screw Counter Clockwise To Lower The Shift Points, This Will Also Soften the Shifts.
Found Out That The Ignition Was Set on The A Cylinder Exhaust Stroke
Instead Of The Compression Stroke. So Took The Ditributor Out,
Set the TDC Mark on The Ballancer and Put Cylinder One On TDC
(Using my Home Made Sparkplug Wishle... Method)
Then Pointed The Rotor To Cylinder One and Put The SparkPlug Wires Back On Counter Clockwise: 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 As Its a 351 Ford Engine.
Put On My Timing Light and Set It On About 8 to 12 Advance
As It's Running On Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).
It Now Starts Right Up & Purs Like a Kitten 👍
