Sounds all too familiar. My Blimp has a Ford engine, and it's manual gives virtually no useful information. I have had very good success going to NAPA or Pep Boys and asking for engine things for a 1987 (last year of carbs on vans) E-350 Van with the 460 engine. So far every part or capacity has be correct. I even bought an after-market book for that year van, and it's full of useful info. May be an option for a Chevy also?
