CarQuest had a kit for my '78 in stock last year - $50ish. It did contain the secondary diaphragm. Not sure whose kit it was, but it was repackaged in a CarQuest box.

I checked the operation of the TP diaphragm tonight (among other things). I hooked it to manifold vacuum and it retracted, as I suspected. It remained in the retracted position as long as I held vacuum on it, but returned to its rest position when vacuum was removed.

I'll find out Sunday morning how it really does. Turns out CJ7 Matt is going to come on the Argentine Run, so we'll be able to "race" up I-70 . I'm hoping to at least keep up with him, if not outrun him due to my gearing advantage. I hope to also have a speedometer cable installed by Sunday, so I'll be able to get some speed readings in addition to rpm readings.

Okay, after a couple runs up I-70 to Georgetown, I'm very happy with the results...

Going up to Beaver Brook/Mount Vernon Canyon, the lowest rpm I got to was about 2600 rpm (58 mph). For most of the climb, my tach sat at about 2750 rpm (62 mph). On the first flat, my tach climbed up to about 3250 rpm (73 mph). On the way back on Floyd Hill, I got caught behind someone going a little slow and my tach dropped to about 2400 rpm (54 mph). I dropped the tranny into 3rd, ran it up to 3700 rpm, then upshifted to 4th again and was able to hold 2700-2750 (61-62 mph) the rest of the way up the hill.

From memory, I used to only be able to do about 48-50 mph, with spurts up to maybe 55 mph on the first flat spot going up Mt. Vernon Canyon. I'll have to double check my notes though. In any case, big difference. I can definitely feel it in my butt meter as well.

Matt, I'm going to have to talk to you this coming meeting so you can school me on what/how to check for more power. I am currently running like you describe your conditions from past.

I'm just enough of an idjit, that I'm getting lost in the thread...
