rebuilt carb, now runs worse
hey everyone, think this is my first post. Bought a 79 cj7; auto, quadratrac, inline 6 258, carter bbd carb. when i got it it ran ok and a little hard to start some times, so like many people i decided to pull it apart and clean it. used a carb kit form orileys( auto part store). disassembled it completely and cleaned out all of the passages with carb cleaner and compressed air. put it back together and its still kinda hard to start sometimes and if you stop on the throttle it will die out, if you slowly accelerate you can pull some revs. pulled the plugs after running it a bit(checking timing which is 5 btc according to my neighbor) half was black and the other half was tan.
i was hopping to maybe find someone in the phx valley that is good with these carbs that could help me out.
at the moment i'm not interested in swapping the carb out with a different one like many have done. so please don't tell me to do that.
i know there are several adjustment points on these carbs, i did find a carter manual and have been reading it, but reading and doing is not as easy as it seems.
thanks for any help
