May 15 2005, 6:18 PM Kultulz Thanks for the fast response. Very helpful info, and being I have the least knowledge of any poster here, this will sure get me started.

Re: new here, and could use some help

I beleive it is rain that got in the engine threw the intake manifold. I had the carb off of the car while I was rekitting it. I stuffed a rag in the ports to block off the intake. Not sure how the water got into it unless it was rain. I don't beleive any of the water to be coolant. Not sure though.
