Good news! Got my carb insulator installed. Bad news! My hood doesn’t shut now. Worse news! I think I have a leak in my brake system somewhere. If I step on the brakes they’ll just slowly drop to the floor and they feel weird as shit. Yaaaaaaaay. I’m hoping multiple hard stops just resulted in a pinhole in one of the soft lines.

The screws that were holding the carb on were super loose. The car idles waaay worse after putting this in so I’m assuming I squashed some vacuum leaks and will have to lean it out now that they’re gone.

Seriously though fuck this shit. With my bodywork history I really don’t want to do a god damn hood scoop nor do I have the money for a high-rise intake and intake scoop. Ugh. Luckily it’s forward-hinged so I can technically drive it around like this.
