    Default 1977 Chrysler 360 engines both won't go over 2800 rpm

    Ran fine last year. Went for ride and cannot get both engines over 2800 rpm at full throttle. Help any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Ayuh,.... Odds are is goin' lean from bad fuel, or bad fuel flow,....

    Check the contents of the fuel filters for anything but clean fresh gasoline,....
    Any Grease is Better,... Than No grease at All....

    I have the same problem with 1 of my 360s. Been chasing the problem for a few years. Still haven't found it. Done heads, cam, lifters, valve springs, carb., new dist., fuel filters, checked exhaust for blockage, and still have not found the answer. I'm out of ideas. Other motor runs perfect. I still need help.

    Linkage or cable bind possible? Do throttle plates in carbs open completely?

    Have you tried disconnecting the tach/tachs?

    Checked fuel pump pressure? Fuel pump volume?

    Is the hull free of marine growth?
