Re: Fast Idle - Help!

So all I did was twist the vacuum hose at the port and distributor, and it's idling nice and low now. I don't see any cracks, so not sure why it worked. Is it safe to assume that installing the PinzSSI I have on the shelf will likely negate this problem, as I will be plugging the vacuum port? (assum...

Fast Idle - Help!

Hey folks, I have a '72 710M, pretty low miles and in pretty good shape. Over the last couple months, it's started idling somewhat fast. Not fast enough that I'm worried the engine will blow, but not right. I can usually tap the accelerator and the idle will lower, but sometimes not all the way. Tha...

Re: New 710M owner in Dallas, TX

I was high bidder on that 710 (eBay), but didn’t hit reserve. I’ve dealt with Andre some in the past, and am certain you got a quality rig - congrats!! I really like your paint scheme. I sold my 710M a few years ago, and regretted it ever since. Assuming things go as planned, I’ll take delivery of m...

Re: 1973 710M

It's gone. I drove her up onto the transport truck today (the driver was scared for some reason). Sad to see her go, have serious seller's remorse, but she's going to a good home in Washington, and the new owner is excited. Thanks for the help over the last few years, hopefully I'll be back.

I had the SAV flexible exhaust coupling installed. Problem solved almost completely!

Re: 1973 710M

It's looking like this is sold to a gent in Washington, once the details are sorted out.

1973 710M

Looks like it's time to sell my 710M, hopefully I can get another one someday. I figured I'd post it here first, to avoid the headache of Craigslist. Plus, I figure most folks looking here don't need all the details about a Pinz spelled out for them. It's a basic '73 710M, with the following: - It h...

Re: Popping/backfiring on deceleration - need a rebuild?

Thoughts on the "oil being drawn into the carbs"? That's a very simple statement. What does he mean by that? The crankcase breather feeds into the intake air; oils and fumes can condense on the carbs. These carbs tend to get ugly dirty, or at least uglier than other carbs on other vehicles that I'v...

Re: Popping/backfiring on deceleration - need a rebuild?

Thoughts on the "oil being drawn into the carbs"? Glad its not what's causing the popping / detonation, but does it need attention?

Re: Popping/backfiring on deceleration - need a rebuild?

Thanks Jim. That seems much more reasonable and likely to me. I did have the exhaust replaced not too long ago, but maybe it wasn't done right. I'll have it re-done. I appreciate the response.

Popping/backfiring on deceleration - need a rebuild?

My '73 710M has been popping / backfiring pretty loudly on deceleration. I recently installed the SSI, which helped some stumble on acceleration, but didn't really change the deceleration issue. It seems to run fine under power, but I now tend to not downshift anymore, to avoid the loud popping. I h...
