Oddly enough if i kick the throttle hard and let off the gas my rpm drop to 500 rpm or in some cases the jeep stalls out and if i look under the hood at this time the idle screw is just barely coming in contact with my throttle lever. I thought maybe my throttle assembly had some play in it and thats why it idles so inconsistent but all the bolts are snug and if i tighten them anymore the pedal is horribly stiff. Lastly now the jeeps exhaust has been smelling like unburnt gas and gets half the MPG it did which was 10 previously. 5 mpg is to bad for even our jeeps espcially with my new lack of poor
I suppose my questions are:
Why did hooking my vaccuum lines up effect my idle so much?
Why does the Weber jump in idle speed just by moving the pedal?
There is no reason to believe that connecting the tubing has caused a fluctuation in idle speed nor efficiency of the carb performance.
There is linkage or plate binding going on. Either a tube is restricting movement back to the curb idle speed setting, possibly the accelerator rods are in need of re-adjustment, or the throttle lever nut is overtightened drawing the throttle rod and plate against the bore. One or more, of these is the cause.
How do i correct my idle my Timing is Set to 9*BTDC should that be adjusted or is my Air/Fuel Ratio thrown off by my new hosing.
Does this sound like the Throttle linkage or should i be adjusting my air fuel ratio.
That diagram was drawn for a member that insisted on using 'S' ported vacuum for spark advance. You should consider moving that tube over to the manifold source. Your distributor was designed to use this source.
In order to set the idle speed screw you must maintain the choke plates open, while you open and close the throttle, since in this case there is the suspicion that binding is occurring I suggest you use the throttle lever itself to assure that the plate is closed once opened.
If you need a guide to help with dialing in the Weber give a shout.
