SOURCE: Datsun stanza 1980 tappets (lifters)

This car has hydraulic lifters( tappets} therefore should not adjustment, you probably have a bad or weak lifter. But, in any case you have to remove the valve covers to make the adjustment. You will see the adjustable bolt on the rocker arm. rotate the engine until the valve is all the way to the top, [no tension on the valve spring] then place a feeler Gage in between the rocker arm and the valve stem, adjust the rocker arm until the feeler Gage is snug but not tight. Do this with each valve. Check the book for the correct Gage to use but I think it is a .018.

Check ignition coil, they are known to short circuit after a wash.
Try starting engine at night or in the dark and look around coil and leads for hi voltage sparks.

I have a 1982 Datsun pickup that sputters and stalls when I go over 35 mph or up a hill help please

This is a timing issue.. The age of the vehicle has also put a lot of miles on the timing for the ignition and possibly the physical timing. You are going to have to get new distributor parts

What adjustments are required on a Rochester quadrajet on a chevy 350 to compensate for performance issues while running ethanol?

You can run larger main(primary) jets. On the secondary side there are metering rods that can be replaced with smaller diameter ones. They can be identified by a letter stamped on them for size purposes. They hang from what's called a "yoke" which also can be changed out for a one that opens faster. You can play around with the secondary spring to have the upper secondary butterflies open earlier or later depending on your application. Q's are great carbs, but misunderstood. Parts are getting harder to find for them other than a rebuild kit. Good Luck. P.S. You will need to adjust your idle mixture screws of course(3 1/2 turns from seated is a base setting).

Have a 90 corsica...fuel pump is fine...****** is fine but wont go over 35 mph...acts like its not getting enough fuel...please help

1st, try to ask a mechanic to check if the timing of your engine is correct. the timing might be a little "delayed" so the engine cannot work properly on high speeds.

is your engine still uses carburetor? if yes, replace the primary and secondary jetting of your carburetor. normally, the standard primary/secondary jets for a 1.6cc engine is 105/135.

if your engine already works on direct fuel injector, replace injectors with bigger size. go up 1 size at a time.

i believe the culprit here is the timing in your engine.

I have an 1982 f 250 4.9 and go through carburaters a lot. New ones last may be a year then start burnning way to much gas. The carb has an idle adjustment and a curb idle adjustment no air gas mixture...

1982 ?? their wouldnt be any adjustment as they are fixed jet carbs ,you could try fitting new jets but whats causing them to eat away in the first place i dont know unless its the fuel additive that you have to add to the unleaded fuel

I have a 85 blazer with a 350 it has a edelbrock performer carb .it starts up just fine and idles fine but when i give it throttle it starts to missor it feels like its choking out

Have you checked the timing? and is it over jetted you may need to reduce the size of the main jets it can be flooding out, you have to make sure the secondary ignition system (plugs wires cap and rotor ) and all good I always recomment Factory AC Delco stuff they have Igh Performance Stuff Too.
if you find this information helpful please give me a good rating and please contact me if you need further help

Low idle speed

if you washed the engine bay theres a chance you may have got water into the spark plugs or on the distrubutor, remove dizzy cap and remove water from the underside, sum crc products work well at this. usually after the engine gets hot it will evaporate the water away, I hope you don't have an exposed air filter, this could also be wet causing starvation. sum more info would be helpful
