Re: GTO fishing tournement

It was nice meeting you and enjoyed chatting with you Friday night.GTO did a good job and we did good by placing first with the largest red and second in the bag. It was a rough day fishing with the wind.Hats off to the GTO crew, great day and good food just wish i would win that prop.

Re: 454 Questions

I agree with the bad ground wire to. If all grounds are good and if still hard to crank when hot then I would change the starter. Also I run a 750 on my 454 for ten yrs with no problems.

Re: 454 Questions

Could be just a bad starter that's causing it to drag.THe timing should be no more than 34 advanced. A 750 holly should be a good start for a carb.a stock distributor is all u need and stock plugs for the year of motor should do. IF ITS ONLY A STOCK MOTOR.
