Take the carb apart again, blow out the needles and seats good, also here's a little tip I found, that little o-ring on the needle and seat can go bad and cause problems. Also make sure all the bleeds on the main body are free of crud. Seen that many a time, it's it's flooding or running bad from the fuel lever being too high you will see raw fuel coming out of the boosters.Ride home wasn’t much better. Acted fine on the freeway, about 7-8 miles.
Jumped on it pretty hard and it pulled fine through 2nd gear and fell flat on it’s face going into third. Had to keep feathering the throttle to keep it running and it just didn’t want to pull the car along, even in 2nd gear. Let it die and coasted to a stop. Let it sit for 30 seconds with the fans running and it refired and ran fine. I didn’t test it again.
Fuel pressure is 6psi with a return style system. Is it possible my float level is so high that I’m flooding the engine through the vent tube under hard acceleration?
Doesn’t explain the episode this morning, though…
Appreciate that. No AFR. I need to get a hose and fittings to temporarily mount my FP gage where I can see it.To bad you are not close to me....I have carbs for you try...many of them.
Question, what does your fuel pressure or AFR gauge do when you have this problem??
