Reviving a '68 GTO with a twist!
Hi guys. I'm a "new" member on here and wanted to get some opinions of you all while I begin my journey in restoring my dad's 68 goat that's been a garage queen for over 20 years! This is intended to be a father /son project. In no way are we novice , I currently own two cars and have built my turbo charged one from the ground up so to speak. Only problem is most of my experience is on imports. Never old American muscle. So with that said, we've been having an issue with starting the car. It turns over fine and wants to fire up but once it does, it gives a loud bang out of the carb and shuts off. I recently bought a new holley 600 carb for it and the same issue occurs. Granted I haven't hooked up the electonic choke since I'm not sure where the ideal place would be for this. We have changed the ignition components as well. I was also wanting to order a new engine harness as we had a rat infestation and are sure there are chewed up wires somewhere along the harness. Here's the twist: this goat has a 428 with a .30 overbore engine and Trans from a 69 bonneville. So would the harness have to be for the bonneville or gto? Thanks for all input guys! I'll be posting pics up soon
