Worked on the GTO yesterday. Oil and filter change, grease front suspension etc.
I had reinstalled the carb a few weeks back but didn't start it up until yesterday.
Get it started I get out of car and it would die. Adjust cold idle but still would die when l would let off the gas pedal. Once warmed up it had very low idle. I try to get out as quick as I could to adjust the hot idle screw but it would die. I finally got it to stay running after adjusting the hot idle speed screw.
When I put it drive or reverse naturally RPMs drop and I notice the Oil light would start to flicker on and off. I know I put 6 quarts of oil in. I even double check myself I counted the empty bottles and check the dip stick and it is on the full mark.
With the flickering oil light could it be I have the hot engine idle RPM set to low?
The Carb flange base gasket that I took off looked to be for an open plenum type manifold instead of the type gasket I received from the rebuilder that has individual holes for each throttle plate. I did use that gasket but I have on order a felpro because this one is looks a bit cheap it doesn't crush type washer at the bolt holes like the felpro.
I am curious could one use an open plenum type gasket on a stock manifold?
P.s. Took a picture of the VN stamp on block and it matches up with the VN on the cowl
