Separate names with a comma.
Don't feel dumb. Look at it as a positive. You LEARNED to pay attention to the old gaskets when rebuilding a carburetor. That's a good thAng.
That's what's wrong. See the large hole in the center of the main body gasket? You need one that isolates that small hole in the main body.
You know it! lol
What kit did you use? Most kits come with ALL of the different metering block gaskets. It's EASY to use the incorrect one. That's why I always try...
Just get a velocity stack.
I tend to stay away from spacers.
It really doesn't matter how it reads as long as when it reads empty it's empty.
Not really. The best you can do is get your original rebuilt.
Accelerator pump is shot. Carburetor needs a kit and the gas tank probably needs cleaning out.
What's so bad is, there were both the brass and nitrofil floats that were produced upside down.
No, I put them in there. I think this was one that got a pair of the floats made upside down before I caught what was going on. There's still a...
Well like I said, I like the Carter on my Valiant. Put a kit in it in 15 minutes. Runs good. No leaks.
I have the Carter on my Valiant and I like it. Is this really a "what one barrel carburetor is better than the other one thread"? lol
Block it off and run a vented cap.
So your dad has an early 80 EFI kit?Scrap metal.
Thanks, Karl, but I am done with carburetors. I do appreciate it, though.
Heck yeah man! That's a fine intake!
Possibly the accelerator pump check ball?
Absolutely. Wouldn't hurt a thing to run without the air cleaner just to see "what you get".
Look on Ebay. There's a seller called Ninja Fuel Systems. They are located in Georgia. I use them a lot.
I'm a big hard line fan. I learned as a kid how to bend, cut and flare it. I can make some darn pretty line, too. Not everybody likes doing...
They can be an invaluable tool, especially with ethanol laced fuel which makes it difficult at best to read plugs.
I would try a step or two lighter springs on the metering rods. If it gets better, you're "going the right way". BUT, there may not be enough...
That's pretty decent for that cam, so I'm guessing your timing.....initial anyway is "close". From your description of the black smoke, I'm...
Sometimes that's the best way. You'd not believe how many of these guys come here for help and go pages and pages and days and days and days and...
Understood. I think I would still try a bit more initial timing....."just to see" how it reacts.
Are we to assume this is an automatic transmission car? If so, how much of a drop when you put it in gear? If it's more than about 100 RPM or so,...
Did you replace the floats? There was a huge batch of brass floats that hit the market that were soldered on the stems upside down. There's a...
"Some" things just go without sayin. lol
That's what she said.
