How to install a radio ina 93 suburban

you need at least to purchase the correct wireing harness for the make and year of your vehicle. you will have to make the proper connections from the radio to the wire harness. the wire harness should plug into the existing harness in the vehicle, provided no previous owner has cut it. you should also be able to find a installation kit for your vehilcle make and model. contact a local car stereo shop and they can put you on the right parts.

The previous owner had the carbs jetted I don't know what size he added or whatever. But everything else is stock. The problem I'm having is the bike runs really bad and the fumes are bad when idling but...

Hi there,

The jets are for increased performance but the jets installed must be in relation to the pipe used. An open pipe would require larger jets. If the jets came with the pipe when the previous owner purchased it, then it should work. My advise would be to tune it up, sync the carbs, and time the sparks.

If all else fail, ask the previous owner to provide the stock jets and replace it. Stock jets along with the stock pipe will almost always run the first time. Sync the carbs and tune timing. If you have it all running smooth, from there you can do upgrades like stage 1 jet kit or purchase a performance exhaust.

Please do let me know if any of this was helpful,
I'll follow it up should my suggestions fail,
