1976 450 SLC sat for 3 years, cant get it to run
I inherited this car, so far I have nicknamed it "the money pit."
As I shift my meager wealth to the local mechanic, I continue to long to see this vintage gem hum along the mountain pass with me behind the wheel.
I used a matrix that I found on this site for steps to follow when a car has sat for a couple of years.
So far I have had the old gas removed, the tank cleaned and as a result
I apparently needed a new fuel pump and a few minor hoses.
Took the spark plugs out and put a little in a little oil.
Fuel supply lines ok now, Gas Distributor ok, fuel injectors ok. new battery
Car turns over but will not sustain an idle.
Currently I am told that I need a "Warm Up Regulator" and that I need to get the correct original part number. Any suggestions, Where do I go to find this out?
