Edelbrock because leaky stock.

Postby KiwiWagoneer » Sat May 06, 2017 10:44 pm

The stock valve covers were dripping / burning oil on the headers, so it was time for an upgrade. Pleased with the result, it's not the stock look, but I've kept the all parts and being a black Wagoneer on the outside, this seems to suit it well on the inside:

That's sexy. The shape and fins still give it an 'old school' look.
What manifold and carb are ya running?

Not sure, sorry. I'd check Edelbrocks website for that info if I were you - there are a few sizes.
This is in the 'classic' section - old looks, new filter. Much prefer this sort of style to the full-chrome look.

Carb is an Edelbrock 4 barrel 1400 series, Manifold is also Edelbrock brand, but don't know any additional info sorry as I'm new to this and learning - these were installed by previous owner, along with cam + headers. MSD Blaster ignition fitted too.

Hey, no worries! Sounds like a nice setup. What part of the world are you located? Are you experiencing any vapor lock kind of issues?

Had a talented mechanic pull the carb and clean / tune it - running as good as it's ever run.
I'm based in NZ, so it's a rare day when I see another Wagoneer. Have only spotted 2 running, other than mine. Know of another 3 in states of disrepair.

I actually looked at one that's not road worthy for that exact reason. Looked in too good condition to butcher it for parts though. Someone else will restore it, would rather see it on the road.

Check out the price on this NZ one!

I've seen it in person - it is immaculate, though I'm not sure of the upholstery colour - too intense yellow in my opinion. I'd prefer it to be lined with money at that price too.

It appears someone reupholstered the interior. Yes, too much yellow. A very good job regardless. The price is a bit insane in my opinion.
