Just remembered, i used to have a carb'd elky a while back for a project car. Pretty new 305 crate motor with a auto 4l60e trans, i let it sit for a month and a half after i got my 'vette with out starting it(all i did was put fuel stabilizer in it) i went out to start it after a month and a half and it wouldnt even try to crank, so i hooked it up to my dads pickup and tryed to jump it off. I primed that carb for a good thirty minutes before it finally turned over
then it died.
After i blew my pinion gear to shreds i had to let my 'vette sit for a little bit while i figured out what was wrong with it, that was in febuary, when we moved i had to tow it over here, so we decided to jumped it off(dead battery from my subs and amp, but thats another story) so we would be sure that the power steering and brakes would work properly, my baby started up the first try without any hesitation
and man did she sound nasty(it's coming straight off the y-pipe up front
So i'd much rather have a c4 than a c3
