My 64 cuda dies when I corner. Seems like it doesn't get t gas. Could it be fuel pump? It starts right up after. Help!
a few things.. yes. you could have an issue with the sending unit pick up tube strainer in the tank..the strainer is the filter device on the end of the pickup tube.. helps keep gas being picked up...i would like to know.. if you own a timing light.. i would like you to hook the timing light to the coil wire.. so it flashes really fast.. you are NOT going to be checking the timing.. you are going to be monitoring the ignition system operation.. depending on your hood gaps.. you might be able to close the hood with the timing light either thru the side gap on the hood or the rear gap.. even if you have it out under the front of the hood and some how held in place so you can see the flashing light while you drive.. when you go around the corner and the engine stalls.. does the timing light quit flashing before just as the engine stalls or does it continue flashing slower and slower until the engine comes to a complete stop..you will want to print this test image out and perform it..post results.. and on test 6 on your car.. expect about 7/10s of a volt as described..
why do i want you to spend the 5 minutes to run the voltage drop test.. to make sure that your wires are properly connected and not loose.. this test will show that in most cases. i know is sounds like road apples.. but i use it to fix more cars that you would ever believe... i run that exact test on almost every car i work on..i have used it on a 2000 caravan that had 6 trouble codes.. 3 for the engine and 3 for the transmission.. turned out to be a corroded ground cable connection.. only requires a digital volt meter.. those are cheep.. 7 to 20 bucks.. will get you what you need..
dude check the float level in your carb. cornering sloshes fuel to one side of the float bowl, uncovering the jet momentarily. check fuel pump pressure should be 4-7 psi. replace fuel filter...you have one, right?
Oh and I believe that in '64, they were called "Barracuda". "Cuda" came about in 1970, with the E body Redesign. Just sayin.
