Asked by Jul 10, 2014 at 11:54 AM about the Pontiac Le Mans

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This is not a question but I wanted to share the resolution I had to my earlier post where my 1971 Lemans 350 had rough idle and no acceleration.  I found the cam rolled over so replaced it and the lifters, still poor so had the carb re-built...huge difference.  Now that they are fixed I've learned of the vacuum advance that is not working much.  I'm just getting a new distributor and should really make things run nice.  So if I were to do this again I would have 1) checked the distributor, 2) the carb, and 3) the cam.  While the cam did need replacing, it's a lot of money I might not have needed to spend right away.  Also, if anyone needs a guy to rebuild carbs, there is an amazing  guy my backyard.  I don't think I should post business names here so if you're interested just email me directly.  I hope this helps someone!
