After all the repairs I made to my Coronet over the winter. I scheduled Sea Trials for Saturday.
Going to run about 100 miles. Going to do a test and tune, and hope I don't need my AAA card and a roll back!

Sea Trials:
Fail...
Road side repair.
A check up from the "man".
The fix... Accelerator pump donut came off the plunger and got hung up in the base spring of my edlebrock.

Weird that should happen?

Has me a little worried. I was running down the highway. When you put your foot in it? It would lay down. I pulled into a parking lot came to a stop and it died right there blocking traffic. I cranked and cranked. Nope.
I pushed it out of the way.. I started digging in the trunk for tools. I turn around and the "Man" is standing behind me...he asks a bunch of questions and leaves...they were not good questions either ....

Okay. Back to my problem.
After all the cranking and pumping. No gas smell. No squirt sound!
I pulled off the top of my edlebrock and there was the problem.. The donut on the accel pump was off and pounded into the base spring...

Sounds like you had most things under control. BTW, who is the "man" you keep referring to ?

She's running good! Just a few bugs to work out.
Midwest Mopars has a run this Saturday. I'm going to tag along. It will be about a 120 miles round trip.
