Question about 1984 Chevrolet Camaro
I have an 84 z28 with a vortec carbureted motor. holley 600 cfm, had no place for a mechanical pump so i installed an electric inline and disconected the 'helper' pump in the tank added a fuel regulator insulated the hoses with insulation tape. but no matter what i do, if the weather is 70 degrees f. or higher, the car will lose power hesitate then die. then i must wait about thirty minutes for it to start back up. it already has a plate under the carb. i moved the hoses away from the heat the best i could. but when it stalls the constant stream turns into what looks like a spray from a bottle of windex or something. i cant seem to figure it out. also my battery all of a sudden started dying and cant figure that out either. the alternator and battery are both fine. im stumped please help!
What you described sound like your vent tube on your tank is plugged so what happens is that your fuel is over pressure causing it to foam thus starving the carb and running your float bowl dry. I would start by looking at the tube that comes off the tank. as far as your battery is concerned check to see if you have a loose ground or a positive cable leading from the altenator and from the engine to the fram ground cable. if the altenator is charging but the ground is loose then the battery will not get replacement voltage. if there is a loose positive and ground cable loose from the altenator then once the voltage on the battery goes below 10 volts the car will stall because there is not enough voltage to energize the coil.
