President: Team Full Chat
Weird that you're having trouble with it even running now. Did you separate the carb bodies this time around? Any chance the sync got messed up?I decided to hook up another car to it and spend a good deal of time cranking it and playing with choke/throttle/idle adjuster and eventually managed to get it to idle of sorts. ANY throttle at all kills it and the choke has very little effect. I guess it's progress but I'm now left with 2 thoughts
1. What if someone put something in the fuel tank
2. Wonder if those jets are doing something funky
I'm still not sure whether the mixture is lean or rich but I'll pull a plug again when I get a chance to find out
Can you confirm that you still have good compression? I can't remember if we already did that. Also, you put the original choke plugers back in properly as well as the rail that operates them?
Typically opening the butterflies and having it die is a symptom of no fuel and all air, or it loses pressure and the venturi effect to draw the fuel out is compromised.
Keep at it, keep posting, and MORE PICTURES :wink
