    It's a good idea to check out that fuel filter. If your boss knows the condition of a condenser by looking at it, then he is truely an amazing guy.

    Re: electrical problems. HELP!!!

    It could. It's probably a good idea to replace it anyway. Replace the one on the front of the engine first. You can follow the fuel line from the carb down to it if you can't find it. This one is most likely to cause trouble, as the quadrajets have a bypass built in. It might be a good idea to replace the quadrajet one too while your at it.

    Re: electrical problems. HELP!!!

    With my '70 I only had one fuel filter. The fuel line came straight out of the fuel pump to the carb, then in the little housing where the fuel line connects to the carb is the filter. I just took mine out and put a clear fuel filter there that you can pick up at autozone/kragen/etc.

    Theres SUPPOSED to be two. I was missing the one in the Quadrajet. (well there was part of it, but it sure didn't filter anything...)

    I just got over a a bad dead spot from a standing start with my Edelbrock 600. Rebuilt the carb and put a new cup on the accelerator pump and now it works fine. Sounds like your pump is the problem to.
