What size fuel tank????

Well, just for kicks and grins, I checked several parts suppliers catalogs and found that all they provide are 22 gallon tanks, any size engine. The Haynes book DOES NOT provide this info as best I could figure it out. 86 owner bilz

Sounds like a problem with your choke. It may just need to be cleaned (linkages and all). If the choke doesn't close after reaching operating temperature, the engine will rev high. This indicates a choke stuck in the open position. Also, you may need to look for a vacuum leak if cleaning it doesn't fix it. On a 1981 GM product, I'd expect the vacuum hoses to be stiff and cracking.

Are you needing advice, links, tricks, or all of the above?
If it's advice you want:
If you are not buying an after market harness and all of the oem wiring is intact replace one wire at a time from the component all the way back to the fuse box. Its tedious but, it's a sure fire way to get it right the first time.

Secondly, I'd by a haynes manual or some other wiring diagram. Study it for at least a couple weeks or until you are completely comfortable taking on the task.

Color code your wires and label both the old and new ones with paper tape and a permanent marker so that you know what each one is for.

Last but not least, make sure that the battery is disconnected... ;o)

most likely a weak fuel pump or a clogged filter. Check fuel pressure with a gauge or as its bogging down spray brake cleaner in the Throttle Body. If this allows it to increase RPM then its the pump or filter.

How do I fix shiflter cableon 1986 chevy el camino

Do you have one to replace it. They are time consuming and you nearly have the disassemble the whole steering column. Find a replacement first( it is nearly 30 years old). I can replace them, but I have to have it in hand. Your best bet is to buy a program.

I own a 1979 chevy El Camino and i have recently replaced my fuel line, fuel filter and fuel pump yet I am not getting any fuel running through the lines. I do not even get any fuel in the first foot of...

Most likely, your in-tank fuel filter has gotten clogged, or the intake has gotten clogged. See if you can either pull it out, or if that is impossible (I'd hope not!) get a tank repair specialist to do it. But given it's getting closer to the "DIYer" age, it should allow you to do it yourself.
