    1984 Chevy Monte Carlo jumped time.

    I always thought the dots on the gears had to go that way as well as in the pic. I will get the info about the after market timing set and post what it is. It's not available to me right now. Thanks for the info and I'll re post soon.

    1984 Chevy Monte Carlo jumped time.

    This may be irrelevant but I figured I'd add that I sold the car to the person I'm working on it with with them obviously knowing what had happened to it and that the mechanic that he occasionally have do work on some of his cars had seen the video with that alleged after market differences...

    1984 Chevy Monte Carlo jumped time.

    Sounds good. The old timer I'm working on it with said there's been a few times he had to move the distributor because it jumped a tooth there as well. When we first put the new cam gear on something wasn't jivin with where the rotor button was pointing. It was not pointing at #1 cylinder, it...

    1984 Chevy Monte Carlo jumped time.

    Last year got stranded just out of town the car just died on me and would not start back up. Finally got the time to tear in to it and my suspicion was correct. It jumped time. And unfortunately that year and who knows what other years GM saved a few pennies by using the plastic nylon cam gear...

    I unplugged the big connector off the ABS pump and it doesn't do it now.

    Brake pedal pulses down at stop but no fluid leak. (ABS Brakes)

    When coming to a stop my brake pedal pulses down a little then stops but there is no fluid leak anywhere. It's a 2000 Jeep Cherokee with ABS brakes. Just noticed this problem a few days ago. The ABS light was on for a day then went out but the problem still remains. I did top off the brake fluid...

    84 Monte Carlo stalled and would not restart.

    Yeah it has the EGR I had put a new one on 3 years ago as well when I did all that work to it.

    84 Monte Carlo stalled and would not restart.

    Mechanical I believe. Car has the computer in it. Very primitive, first year for it I think. Electronic distributor, not vacuum. I will get a compression tester off a friend and check that to eliminate that possibility as well.

    Fuel filter that's inside the carburetor right where the fuel line goes in.

    84 Monte Carlo stalled and would not restart.

    No I have not checked that. I don't have a tester right now. Checked the cap and rotor on the distributor still looks new, put a couple new plug offs on the carburetor that I discovered were dry rotted nearly off and put a new fuel filter in it while I was at it. Can't keep the thing running...

    84 Monte Carlo stalled and would not restart.

    Well I put the new fuel pump on and am getting fuel to the carburetor again and tried to start it but it would not stay running. Plugs were severely fouled out so I replaced those and it still is running bad so there is other problems going on now. It's like like I'm back to where I was when I...

    84 Monte Carlo stalled and would not restart.

    I took the fuel line off the carburetor a little bit ago and it's dry as a bone. Literally no gas at all not even a sign of any wetness at all.

    84 Monte Carlo stalled and would not restart.

    Got the car out for the first time this year it gets stored in the winter and occasionally gets started up during the cold months but the battery was still dead. I was not as on it as I should have been. No problem, buddy jumped me and let it run for a good bit and started fine after that...
