Good luck with the interview, Scott! Show them your jeep thread and they'll hire you for sure! Tenacity like that is hard to come by, these days!

Well I am at a total loss now.... National went through the carb again today and stuck it on their test engine with their cut out gasket they test on. The carb runs great and idles smooth at 650 rpms.

Here is a video they sent me of it running with their gasket.

http://s1238.photobucket.com/user/Us...21b46.mp4.html

They then swapped in my factory gaskets. Guess what... Didn't run right. They could not get it to idle below 1000 rpms. He could not find any vac leaks around my gaskets and checked several times. They are now at a total loss of why it will not run now as well...

When I was trying to get it to run I went through 2 plastic spacers and 5 sets of paper gaskets and the thick isolator gaskets so I am sure it is nothing specific to the gaskets themselves. Only 2 companies make the gaskets and I tried both of them.

So they are now checking two see if they have any AMC 2150 cores to rebuild and try with the factory AMC gaskets.

Wonder why that is? What is special about their gasket? Sorry but someone had already taken the carb off the junkyard Waggy engine I got. Otherwise you could have had it.

Would it be worth using a very light coating of sealant between the carburetor and gasket?

A gasket is a gasket as long as it does not leak right? They said the factory gaskets did not leak and they checked.

The only differance I can think of is the gasket they use is only around 1/4" and the AMC ones together are around 7/8". I cant imagine that that would make any differance...

No sir. Sealant is a bad thing the gas will slowly break it down. Plus they checked and there are no vac leaks from the gaskets.

Would the height difference make a difference?

Why not try and get closer to 1/4" to see what it does...just a wild guess...

I can't imagine the height would make a difference. People put 1" - 2" spacers on 350's for performance without issues. The amc spacer is designed to insulate the carb from the engine so the fuel does not boil. The older ones like yours Steve are spaced up off the manifold about the same amount with the metal spacer and gasket.

I just can't imagine what it could be. It's all factory setup and installed on every jeep waggy 360 ever made and it runs on them.

It is very strange...


Maybe Ill just push it all in the street and burn it.

Unlike the original one that broke, I have never seen this carb on a running 360. It came off a 85 grand waggy 360. It seems to be the carb the engine came with. Its a later model amc 2150 carb, judging by the external power valve hook up, and it had all the factory gaskets on it.

The 2150 that broke had the exact same base as this one. I compared them and they were matches.



I appreciate the questions guys, keeps me thinking...
