Still have very high idle!

I think I need some direction on the fast idle cam. I was adjusting what I thought it was, but not much seemed to change. I don't think I am dealing with a vacuum leak as I pretty much capped everything off except PCV and vac advance to the dist. I found a post by drexelsteve (I think that is his name) and it helped a TON! Thanks!

I just need some guidance on the fast idle cam. Can someone snap a picture of it for me, and give me some direction? Much appreciated!

Oh, and wraithyjeep... I can't seem to find that diagram you posted. Any help there would be nice as well.

Ok, then I think I know what it is....on the back of that housing there is a screw with a spring on it. I backed it all the way out...without removing it and she still idles really high!

Any other ideas?

thats part of your high idle
this will see if it is binding form there you can figure out why if that is the problem.
there may be a port arounf the back side of the carb half way up the body check to see that that is capped

also try pushing against the throttle lever to obtain a lower idle it appears you throttle spring has no tension on it perhaps the thottle isn't all the way closed.

On the Choke housing? there is a threaded hole there...not sure what it is. All vacuum ports on the back are capped or used.

I will double check though.

That pic was before I adjusted the linkage....there is tension now and I have tried pulling back on it. I have also started the engine without the linkage hooked up just as a test.

are you sure the thottle blades at idle are are fully closed no light should pass through. i find that sometimes if not put on with a little though they bind and leave a gap in the closed position of which there should be none.

I will check that as well. I guess a flash light would work for this trick?

I dont see any mention of you resetting your timming after the HEI install. This may be part of your idle problem.

Didn't install the HEI yet. I was wanting to only do one upgrade at a time. Once I get the carb running right, I will do the HEI.

It is a methodology I have from working with computers. That way, I can pinpoint problems better.
