You need to add heat to the manifold.

Why does my 1955 235 engine won't start. no spark?


I would replace the condenser first, that's the small metal can that is connected to the points and make sure that the contacts in the distributor & points aren't burnt up and that the rotor is still good. These can all be touched up with emery cloth if they are carbon fouled. Good Luck, I hope that helps.

The turns out is an idle miixture adjustment. I hope that your camshaft is set up for your new carb.You may need to mess with your ignion timing. Those engineers that set things up are usually not wrong.

The problem is in your carburator. Was it rebuilt in a shop or by yourself or a friend?Did they know what it was going on? It could be that the float level is too low. It could be that you have the plunger rod for the power valve in the wrong hole. It could be that you just need to adjust the mixture screws on the front. I would start with the mixture screws. Turn them in until they seat but don't force them,be gentle. Turn them out 1 and 1/4 turns each and start from there. You will have to turn each one separately from here.Set your curb idle about 500 RPM and turn 1 screw out until you hear the idle start to go up and then back it off until it starts to falter or miss, them come ahead just enough to bring the engine out of that. Then do the same with the other screw. Reset your idle and rev the engine by hand, a couple of cracks and then crack the 4 barrels open and let go. If it stalls then open the idle screws about 1/8 turn and try again. When the engine will return to idle off the 4 barrels without stalling your mixture screws are set right. Make sure you keep resetting the curb idle, usually 500RPM for a standard and 750 RPM for an automatic.
If you rebuilt the carb yourself then look on the rebuild sheet that came with the kit for your engine application and make sure you have the power rod in the right hole and that you have the correct float level. Different applications have different float levels even with the same size engine. Set them for the engine you have it on, if the carb came off something else. Hope this helps.

Sounds like the accelerator pump circuit in the carb is not squirting fuel in when you depress the accelerator. That is why you get the lag in acceleration before it decides to launch. When you open the carb you should get a steady stream of fuel from the accelerator pump. With the engine not running look down the carb throat and open the throttle blades and visually check to see that there is a stream of fuel when doing so. If not time to rebuild the carb, or just get another accelerator pump for
the carb.

How many RPMs should a V8 Chevy with a 4 barrel Rochester carb be turning?


I would expect about 4500 to 5000 RPM with stock engine and valve springs/lifters in good shape. An electronic ignition may extend this somewhat. Dual exhaust with low back pressure mufflers will push it a little more yet. This is assuming that the engine is well tuned including the 4-barrel. Hope this helps!

Old chevy 235 six cylinder, when cold it falls on its face


Question, does it stall, or bog? A few things come to mind. You say the carb. is new, what is the cfm of the carb.? Could be too much carb. for the cam. It could be a problem with the accl. pump on the carb. dumping too much fuel on take off. Have you checked the fuel pressure at the carb. also? You say you checked the timing and vac. advance, but is the timing set high enough? Usually this is a sign of too much fuel being dumped. If you have the chance, try another carb. Let me know.
