You can also adjust the accelerator pump by varying the hole on the throttle arm in which the rod sits...and bending the rod, itself.

There should be no 'play' at the pump arm. It shouldn't be 'almost touching'...the pump arm should be under spring load (from the internal spring) and have the diaphram just slightly into its range of motion. This ensures a rapid pump shot as soon as you press the pedal.

That pump shot is the first thing you feel on throttle tip in, the power valve fillls in (on aggressive pedal action) after the acc. pump is done.


probably out breaking stuff.

Yes, changing the power valve should be done once the accel pump is eliminated from the equation.

If it gets worse then I will hunt up a 8.5 and try that.

Did you ever resolve the power valve problem/situation? I am in a similar situation and am looking for comparative fixes so I don't have to pull my carb off so many times..

It only hurts while you're breathing..

It did help. Almost perfect. So close I am not messing with it. I plan to remove the POs leaking header and put a cast exhaust manifold back on this winter maybe so I will what the new intake gasket does just in case it's leaking and I couldn't find it

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.

Did you go with the 6.5 pv and the 47 jets? Are you at sea level or?
Thanks..

Not sure what jets (it's been three years). But yes on the 6.5
