Regarding your carb problems. I recall reading there may be differences in the bases of the 2100 and 2150. I'll bet the 2150 requires a different adapter plate, or gasket, than the 2100.
Like you, I'd be very surprised if there's a problem with the National carb.
Have fun, today....
You are correct Matt, the gaskets are different. The gaskets I bought are specific to a 2150.
I am pretty stumped on the carb. Torn in to it yesterday and everything looks great. Everything is clean, check ball it their, no debris under the needle, float does not appear to be hanging, power valve is not bad from my one backfire when I was 180 out. I talked on and off with National as well hunting for ideas. I did notice the clip that holds the needle to the float was missing. Thinking I had found my smoking gun I called National and the said they intentionally leave it off on thier rebuild as one of the "Tweeks" they do.
My plans are to blow everything out with carb cleaner, replace the power valve (even though I am 100% sure its good), install the missing clip they left off, dry check the float level, then button her back up and see what happens. If it is still not running I am going to pull the top and see where I am at with fuel in the bowl.
Its 100% the carb since I idles great with this 2100. National assures me that it was ran on a test engine and was functional but will take it back and check it again.
Time will tell. I had to leave the jeep at the muffler place. I sat around a little over 2 hours before the got it on the rack then they ran out of the correct size pipe and had to go get more. I was going to stay the whole time and supervise but I think the guy doing it knows exactly what I want. When I left he has the skid cut and the pipes running from the collectors back to where the mufflers will go.
So I am off to pick up Gabby, drop her off at dance, pick up Liam, go back and get Gabby, run home and get the trailer, then make it back to the muffler shop with the kids to load up before they close at 6.
Already checked that. Ran a straight edge across it and looks good. Also did not hear any air leaks when I checked with the stethoscope. Listened with the engine running and with it off when we tried to pressurize the top end.
Under A Sun Thats See It All Before...
Done deal. $649 out the door with a warranty from Meineke. Over all I am very happy with the work. I went with a set of Super V's, imitation Flowmasters. The skid plate cuts were not to bad, I just have to pretty them up a bit. I had them hang the pipes out a little long at the rear so I could decided where to chop them. The only little concern is they come out a little closer to the rear tires than I would have liked. It is really tight. He did say that any modifications / changes I wanted he could do under the warranty anytime. Going to ponder on it and see.
Here she is running. Keep in mind I have the leaking 2100 on it. The 2100 that all I did to was turn the screews out 2 turns and bolt it on. No tunning. The dirty old leaking 2100 that runs... Not the pretty professionaly rebuilt 2150 that does not yet run.
