Well the M22 was not the old trans from my buddy'all FJ40. Turned out to be a Saginaw 3 speed from the late 60's. I grabbed it anyway and the motor it was attatched to. The guy said the motor was a 305 but running the casting number showed up as a early 70's 350. Has a decent aluminum intake on it and all the brackets and pulleys. A friend of mine is looking for a rebuildable sbc for his Toyota project so off to his house it went and I just stuck the tranny in the corner of my shop for now. 

Drove the car some more yesterday. Haven't looked into the grounds yet because it was daylight and everything works fine without the lights on. Maybe today.

Car is stumbling a lot at higher rpm or 3/4+ throttle. I'm assuming it's just too much fuel from that qjet for the massive 307......  Does anyone have any suggestions as to jetting or metering rods? I know it's hard to diagnose from a computer screen. I may play with the timing a little too. I'm at 4 degrees at idle. Might try to add more until it pings and see how it is. 

 

Went to to the store real quick this morning and a kid in an iroc thought he was pretty cool. That 307 showed him up pretty good drifting around a corner and left him in a big cloud of tire smoke.

If its throwing black smoke then its fuel, I doubt that's the issue as the Qjet is a pretty good carb (shut up Dave).  If you're still running points, I'd look at the ignition system first.

It's still points.  I filed them when I first got it running but that is it. Guess I'll look into that; make sure the advance is working, etc. Can't see the smoke but the pipe tips are pretty black.

Timing/good spark first, then the carb. Try 12 degrees initial without the advance can at idle.
