Re: [T3] Hi idle in nuetral

Thanks Shad,
I will try this.. I only have the one barrel carbs on each side.  Weber's
34ICT.  so will try this out.

With a T3 automatic, the 1st gear is too low and the car wants to move.  The
reverse gear is the same as the forward 2nd gear, so I can leave it in
reverse with the emergency brake on.  Can even give it gas a little.  I once
tried to back it up some car ramps in reverse but there just isnt enough
power that way, can only do it forward.
thanks for the advice.
