318 question

I have a 1981 Dodge W150. It has a 2 barrel intake, if I get a 4 barrel adapter and 4 barrel carburetor would it make a difference?

Mike -

Well, maybe...

Will it make any real difference, maybe a little, and if you don't have a lead foot, you'll get better mileage, assuming you pick the right size carb, of course.
The real reason to do that,would be because bucks are tight, and you can start with the carb and get the manifold a little later, but again, lets be real, 318 manifolds aren't that expensive, especially if you look at the used market.

Unfortunately, the carb/manifold swap is only the first step, then headers, cam, etc.

Check the power to the choke thermostat. If it's not getting voltage, then the resister may be bad and need replacing.

Before you buy one... Make sure you have voltage/power to the timer first. Might not be hooked up for some reason? Or maybe the feed/power wire is broken?
