!POP! quiz will make you laugh

After I drive several miles and shut off the Binderbird,,,,,, (it has to set at least 20 to 40 minutes or it won't do it) ,,,,any less or any more it won't do it,,,, when I go to restart it,, it POPS real loud and won't start. I know where the pop is coming from,,, not the carb,,, not the exaust,,, not the valve covers,, can you guess?
I'll give you a hint,,, when I open the hood and,,,,,how should I say this,,,,,reconnect it??? ,, it starts right up and I drive away with no problems.
Darrin,,, you don't get to play,, you know what it is. ;)

Distributor filling up with fumes through a leaking advance diaphram, and blowing the clips off????? Come on, the suspense is eating me up. :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

Boom baby,, you got it,,,blows the cap right off every time,, but I didn't think about the vacume advance diaphram doing it,, I figured it was coming up out of the shaft,,, thanks for the insight.
Is this common?

I was thinking the same thing before I read his post. I had a truck that did that several years ago. It was the vac advance best i could tell. I replaced it and it was fixed.

I DID however find that I was also getting to boil-over into the intake and that was why the fumes were so bad to be able to get into the vac lines and up to the distributer. I think it was creating a "chimney effect", hot manifold cool dizzy and the fumes just pulled up into it.

My dad had a 76 AMC hornet that did the same thing. It would make a pop sound then we would open the hood and low and behold the distributor cap was hanging by the wires! :D :p

automatic rotor inspection? i was going to suggest it had something to do with eating at taco bell. this is one of the wierdest ones i've heard of, yet seems to not be all that uncommon eh? be pretty cool, if i'm ever presented with the opportunity, to be able to tell someone with such a problem why it does it.

It made me think of the old days, running through mud and water with my Ford. Used to hook a hose to the distributor cap vent, and run it into the glove box. I could spray the inside of the cap with WD 40 that way, without opening the hood. If I didn't get the mixture right, I would have to open the hood anyhow, and put the cap back on. :p

My God man, you shouldn't make me laugh so hard in the morning,, now I have to go back to the can.
I think before I fix it I'm going to get it on video so everyone can laugh at me. :)

Then you know the look on my face when I opened the hood and found the dizzy cap hanging off to the side :eek:

Ok, guys. Never seen it or heard of it. Honest. I was just guessing. :eek:
Not a guess,,, intellegance,,
I wonder what the result would be if it was a a bolt on cap? Bet I wouldn't just resnap it and drive away,,, might even be a louder bang it's pretty loud now.
