mc 2100 conversion problems
I did the mc2100 conversion from the carter and have a bad vac leak in the gaskets. the adpater seems OK but I think the problem is in the gasket between the carb and adapter. I spray starter fluid around the gaskets and get a definite rise in rpm. I tried to seal with permatex (2b) and problem is still there. The effect of this seems to screw up my acceleration. From a stop, as I give it some gas, it revs up, I let out the clutch and it just chugs right down to almost a stall if I don't floor it or push the clutch back in.
As I gradually/slowly increase speed I can't give it too much gas or she stalls or hesitates (I checked timing and vaccuum and dist. advance is on a ported vac tube. I also changed fule filters and pump.). Once I get going, about 30 or so, I can get it to accel if I don't step on it too much. If I do the carb starts to spit until it catches again.
I would like to try and new gasket between the adapter and carb but don't know which ones to try. Theone I havenow came with the kit and is a paper gasket about 1/4" thick. I got a NAPA part number of 2-7694 for something different to try but NAPA says they don't carry that anymore.
Dont know if this is related or not but am having a hell of time trying to warm her up. It starts up right away, revs up, and then keeps trying to die. I'm feathering it from that point on trying to let it warm up. It takes about 10 minutes to warm up till it idles nice. I even changed the coil on the electric choke but noticed the one off the carter was a motorcraft also (after I wasted my time of course), so didn't seem to help.
what gasket? and what gives witht he idle?
