I adjusted the choke spring this afternoon. It now idles very low until the engine warms up.
Not one word on how it started, in otherword what was required to do so, nor whether or not the plates snap closed as you cycle the throttle or if the plates are opening as the engine warms, coming to rest fully open when the engine is warmed???
Good exhange of information will be a major player in dialing this thing in... without that I'm stumped! Who knows what?
When it does warm up it idles around 13k-14k. Is the fast idle speed adjustment the screw with the spring. Is this what controls the idle when the engine is cold.
Yes the fast idle screw is in play while the choke plates are closed or have progressed to some extent with their opening ... adjustments alter how long as well as how much.
Also when I shut the engine down after a test drive it acted like it didn't want to shut down. One more issue. On my test drive with a cold engine, the jeep cut out or lost power. Like it lost fuel. It never jerked or appeared to bog. It felt like the engine shut down but it didn't. If I sound like a Bumbling idiot I appologize.
Zero apologies are necessary, I fully understand that these added symptoms raise concern, need addressing and can be/are easily corrected if we
know and share what is going on.
As I mentioned in the first reply, the fast idle screw will most likely come into play as you're nearing having the choke assembly set. Its pretty obvious that with the run-on issue it has, holding the throttle plate open to the extent that fuel continues to flow after you prepare to shut the engine down.
Adjustment to the Fast Idle Speed screw should only be performed while the engine is cold and plates sitting at that preset stop position mentioned earlier. That position should be near to yet slightly under 1/4" off of the air horn walls.
Here is an image that indicates the location of the points of concern, notice that this image (a 38DGES) lists one of it's two idle mixture screws, your 32/36 will only have one and it will be located along that same end but angled and located nearer to the rear side of the body flange.
The Idle Speed Screw (not to be confused with the Fast Idle Speed screw) should be set no more than 1-1/2 turn in after its tip contacts the stop on a fully warmed engine and after the throttle has be cycled open to closed, OR, set after you hold the choke plates completely opened while you cycle the throttle. This should clear the fast idle screw from interference.
Idle quality is set via the Idle Mixture screw in relation to the size of the Primary Idle jet... located behind the Idle Jet Holder.
Ideally the Idle Speed screw should be found to offer a steady curb idle speed whole resting between 2 to 2-1/4 turns out from lightly seated.
