86soon3.4 aka Steve apparently did. Posted in my first thread yesterday titled "Teenage Dream Fufilled" on the next page.

Hey I'm right there with ya on the whole waving thing, I literally get waved at/honked at/yelled to every time I drive this car. I'd just prefer to do all that with more then one Fiero once in awhile ya know?

I don't know if I'd call it a "parade", but about half a dozen of us in November 2010 took a trip around Lake Winnebago, most in our Fieros.

Starting at its northern tip, we traveled south, near Lake Winnebago's eastern shores, through the lakeside High Cliff State Park and/or Calument County Park. After reaching the city of Fond du Lac at the base of Lake Winnebago, we headed north, near the lake's western shores, stopping for awhile at a shop near Oshkosh wherein one of our club's members was having a small-block Chevy swapped into his Fiero.

You can see some pictures from that trip within the present thread: seven pictures on page 10, plus three more on page 15.


I thought I remembered previously seeing more visuals of our trip around Lake Winnebago than those 10 pictures, but I don't see them now. I guess either my memory of having seen more visuals is faulty, or maybe they were among those stored on that hijacked Facebook page that jetsnvettes2000 mentioned three days ago on February 26.

Sounds like a great time! I will have to find those because a line of Fieros must be a majestic sight to behold, but the trip sounds incredible.

I only ask about the parades because I know Milwaukee and Waukesha's car clubs usually run their cars in the parades, so I didn't feel like going alone. Or maybe we could secure an all Fiero spot in the parade

Seems like everyday during this winter my Fiero has to break something. Cradle (got a new one and also need to fix that), then engine has a few leaks here and there, replaced battery, replaced alternator (before winter), now the steering isn't working... I wish I had a garage... :/

Well, it is over 20 years old, things will break but at least they are cheap to fix!

Hey Steve lets see some pics of those wheels. Is your swap running yet?.........Rob, how's things going? Need any help with the vettes or anything else? I have some free time at the end of March. I need to get back on the Fiero, I've been messing with the friggen boat lately and I have some questions for you on both. I'll try calling you tonight.

Feel the same way, I've got leaks, squeaks, and shakes but it still keeps going

Which reminds me, what do you guys for undercoating? I keep hearing Por-15, but I don't know if I wanna paint my underbody next year.

Hey guys! I am in a bit of a pickle, I need a car trailer stat! I need to move those two Fiero's I bought from Doug hopefully today. I could wait till later this week I guess but I would love to get it done while the ground is wet instead of ice. We tried to move them yesterday but the trailer we borrowed came undone from the hitch and almost wrecked us. Luckily it busted the restraint chains and went off into a snow filled ditch so no real damage was done other than killing a cooler full of chains.

Scott! I need you to get that rear clip out of my yard I need the room!!!

Nope not yet, had a even bigger problem, Hayley took off without my knowledge from a friends house running the town without a parent present, ending up stranded at the mall when the kid's parent decided to ditch her there without a jacket or phone to call home. Needless to say I will be calling child services on that parent.

Hiya guys,

Now that I got a job going on, I got some spending cash to start repairing the 88 Formula sitting on the lot. Quite frankly though something on the steering is broke because I can't even turn the tires with the steering wheel... I'm also wondering if anyone around the area has a pair of good outer door glass seals, otherwise I might just buy some at The Fiero Store.

Ok, so heres the deal. My 86 v8. has an issue. it will idle, and run normal perfect. I can drive it and it will be perfect, but if i hit the gas hard it will act like its out of gas and die. I talked to my friend, who said they used the stock tubing and filter sock in the tank. My thinking is once i ask that 383 to respond the fuel suction in the tank clogs/ collapses the sock and poof..out of fuel. I got good pressure, the external pump is good. It has to be a tank issue...right?

Hey Jake how have you been? As to your issue the in tank fuel pump always sucks the same wether you're idling or on it. If I remember correctly your v8 car is carbuerated. Your regulator is what controls the fuel to the carb. Make sure you have at least 4 psi to the carb even under full accelleration and not more than 7 psi as anything higher may overcome the needle and seat. To me it sounds like you're either sucking air due to fuel slosh in the tank [top off the tank and try your run again, if that cures your problem fuel slosh in the tank is your problem], or your problem could also be fuel slosh in the carb float bowls [carb is mounted sideways as compared to a normal front engine car, the acceleration of the car sloshes the fuel away from the main jets causing a lean stumble and the engine dies]. My car is also carbed and I had a similar issue. The way I overcame this issue was to adjust the fuel bowl levels up higher [Be careful with this, too high can cause flooding and fuel metering issues. I set mine at about half way up the sight plugs], and there are also main jet extension tubes that are available. I cant remember if your Holley had center hung float bowls or not, If your carb has the side hung float bowls, the main jet extension tubes may not work for you.

Now that I got a job going on, I got some spending cash to start repairing the 88 Formula sitting on the lot. Quite frankly though something on the steering is broke because I can't even turn the tires with the steering wheel... I'm also wondering if anyone around the area has a pair of good outer door glass seals, otherwise I might just buy some at The Fiero Store.


I'm excited for that last bit!

Took the nice weather we had last Thursday/Friday and detailed the old girl. Was my first wax, interior, and wheel job. My rims look like **** , anyone got any suggestions for getting out dirt and scratches and whitening my letters? :/

Looks good! Hey Aaron I am thinking what Chris said seems to be in line with my ideas about the issue too. or, therer is a kink someplace and the gas flows slowly into the carb bowl in low speed but when sucking it does not have the flow rate to keep up.

Thanks,
I'll check it out. I have a edlebrock 650 AVS vac secondary carb. I tried a Holly 750 dbl Pump. Had the same issue. I didn't even really think about the float level. I'll have to check into it. Thanks again.

Had a idea about this pop into my head, could the rubber fuel line delaminated within itself causing a restriction. Under idle it would refill carb fast enough but when suckin gas it would starve if that were happening.

Well it's probably not the float level issue if you have the same problem with both of those carbs as the float arrangements are quite different, I'm thinking you may not have enough fuel pressure/volume to the carb. Get a gauge on the line to the carb from the regulator, you should maintain a constant pressure of at least 4psi even under full throttle conditions. If not your pump doesn't have enough capacity and you're running out of fuel, or as Rob said you may have a restriction somewhere. Check to make sure all your lines are clear and kink free. The entire fuel line is under pressure from the pump [it's pushing the fuel from the tank]. There is no suction anywhere in the line. The only point of suction is at the fuel pump inlet. Eliminate the possibility of fuel slosh in the tank and check to make sure you're maintaining at least 4psi under full throttle conditions.
