a Haynes manual. Looks nice. What is it?
Well I got a carb rebuild kit for a 77 Plymouth Volare which is what came with a Holley 2280, (which is as I said what somehow made itself onto my rig). Got home with the kit got to the first gasket and realized I had the wrong kit. Took it back to Autozone, got refund. Called Napa. After cross referencing a couple shop manuals, the guy said that the kit is obsolete. Well isn't that just wonderful.
So while putting my antique carb back together I noticed a stopper thingy next to a spring loaded plunger thingy. The stopper was in a stuck position. I freed it up with some carb cleaner and compressed air. Put er back together and its running like a raped ape again. Now if you recall, (I think it was this thread) it ran like that after I shot some carb cleaner down the barrel, but then after a day it went back to falling on its face when I gave it too much gas. As if I knocked some crud loose and it got re-stuck.
Did freeing up the stopper thingy solve my issue for good? (for a while anyway, until I get rid of that carb?)...
