Carter BBD Idle Problems
On a suggestion from Aaron, I have re-written my Q:
Jeep: 1980 CJ-7, I6-258, Carter Carb, everything stock as far as I know - hard top, metal doors, 31" tires.
Problem: The I6 258 won't idle right. It seems to get worse as the engine gets hotter, and then it dies. I have to wait to restart it, like it's flooding.
After a few min. I can restart it, and get a repeat performance. Right now I have my idle speed cranked up to cover, but it still dies, eventually.
Highway running is good, as I drove it from California to Iowa last week.
I've tried cleaning out the Carb...now it is actually worse! :-( any other ideas?
I'm on a limited college budget, but is there anything I could replace the carter with that is less problematic? Cost is a factor, though, so I'm stuck, I guess.
I would like to get it running before it snows.
Thank you all for your help - I'm learning a lot.
