SOURCE: new carburetor installed on 79 el camino

I am familiar with these, a manual choke carb works off of a bimetal coil in the manifold exhaust crossover on the passenger side of the intake, Make sure it is hooked up, then while the car is cold, on the rockchester carbs, use an 1/8 in drillbit to set choke. You have to loosen the three screws on the choke to set, when the choke flap, the very top one on the carb touches the drillbit, set it there and lock down screws, pump once or twice and it should start and idle, as the bimetal coil heats up it should open the top flap. if you try to accelerate before it is wam it will disconnect from the auto choke. I hope this helps if not please do not rate me at all, if it does help you fix your problem then please give me a fixya,

SOURCE: shift indicator cable

I just fix the same problem on my 83 el camino today. The indicator is just a plastic pin connected to a wire and uses a small spring to return to park. I took out the dash board pannel in front of the gauges. There are two 7mm screws under the indicator, remove those. Drop indicator down, check to see if the plastic hoop the wire connects to has broken off. If so I connected my wire to the hook on the return spring, every thing works fine now. I had to fix this to get it threw Maryland inspection.

How hard is it to replace an entire fuse block in a 1984 El Camino?

I've never seen a fuse block that was bad enough to need replacement. generally speaking, one or a few connections may be bad or it may need to be taken apart and cleaned. At worst, you may need to re-route a few of the fuses. That can be done by splicing into the appropriate wires and running them to a smaller fuse block (you can usually get one at a marine supply house). The same but less neat approach is to just use an inline fuse for each and label them so you know what they serve. Most important is to use the proper gauge wire and the correct amp fuse (style does not matter..only amp rating)
Before buying it though, make sure you know what is working and what's not. Blaming a fuse box for a major problem with an important system could cause you major headaches later.
Look for wire splices and things that look non factory. People can mess things up worse than the car can do to itself.
As far as replacing one, you'd probably have a difficult time just finding one. then, cutting it out of the donor vehicle and re-wiring will likely not be terrible but is time consuming and you'd need to write down and diagram everything very accurately to get it back together without problems. Check before believing this but I'm pretty sure chevelle harness is the same as a 'camino.

1984 305 El Camino / stock, was running fine, now it stalls when I get off the freeway at stop sign. After a short while it will start again but acts like it is choking.

Check your accelerator pump. It's on the side of the carburetor, near where the fuel line enters. It costs about $10 to replace but it causes a lot of headaches.
