Drove to mechanic, may have to tow home!
Well, I'll start at the beginning, My 67 250 se needed three things 1, rear exhaust manifold replaced 2, points and timing adjustment 3, valve adjustment. I had all of the parts except for the points/ plus I purchased a new battery. long story short after all was done the car starts and idles excellent(better than before), but as soon as you hit the throttle it stalls. every time you hit the throttle even a little it stalls. two things that happened while there, 1 it ran out of gas, 2 the main ground to the engine has pulled out of the connector (and they replaced it with a smaller ground wire to the valve cover bolt). I will replace the fuel filter in the morning but I dont think that is the problem.
Can you guys suggest anything that might cause this problem (wrong point/ bad coil/ distributer in wrong/bad ground) I'm kinda stumped. Anyone heard of this? thanks for looking.
