A couple of months ago I bought my '67 and since then I've done all the basic stuff, like oil change, new PCV valve, spark plug wires, belt, fuel filter, fresh oil in the oil bath filter and finally installed a new radiator. The truck is running pretty well except that I feel it may be lacking a little bit of power. I realize it's an old truck and it has over 130k miles on it so I'm not really sure how much umph the old girl should have.
The truck was built in Michigan and lived it's life in Nebraska, just on the edge of Colorado. Now, the truck lives in Denver Colorado at 5,000 feet and my first thought in the "lack of umph" was likely a re-jet of the carbs. But I began to think, I have no idea when the truck had last been properly timed and adjusted.
I think I'm a little out of my league as I have absolutely no experience with such procedure on an auto with 4 wheels, and screwing up could mean an un-drivable truck, I am wondering if there's anyone on this forum in the Denver area that might be willing to help me do this right?
I could pay in beer, lunch, personality???
