Re: Here\'s my initial impression of the rebuilt carb I got...

Ok, I've been running with this carb for a couple of days now, and I must say, this rebuilt carb is very nice. I never used to have any cold weather or cold engine driveability, I'd have to wait until the engine warmed up before I drove anywhere. Now, I push the throttle all the way down to set the choke once, and it fires up and I can drive it right away. I got the unnecessary vacuum components (emissions control junk) removed and it solved some other problems, such as my vacuum actuated front differential taking a while to disengage, now it disengages immediately when I move the lever back to 2wd, and other stuff, like it always used to backfire on deceleration. With the old carbuerator, there was a huge dead spot where all it would do (I'm assuming is dump gas) and caused misfiring like crazy until I kicked it all the way down. But anyway, Just figured I'd do the followup report... I'd recommend this product to anyone who needs a rebuilt carb... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
