\'85 Still Running Crappy after Carb rebuild
I went out to start my truck this moring and it was a pain in the butt to get running. (Just rebuilt the carb yesterday) I started pulling out of the driveway and it didnt have much power. Going down the road it started to take off and run better (still not very good) and I came to a stop sign, stoped(DUH), and started to take off and it died. I tried cranking it and it wouldnt start. So, I floored the gas and cranked and it started running. It ran very bad, sputtering (missing out maybe?), at about 500-1000 RPM's (With the pedel to the floor). It wouldnt take off at all. Finally some one I stopped and I had them try to start it while I looked at the carb to see whats happening. Well, with the gas pedel not pushed at all, (wont even come close to starting) the choke plate was closed (fully closed), then, I told them to floor it and the choke plate opened to chokeing position, car started, but wouldnt take off and died if you let the gas off. So, I pushed the choke plate open fully while he floored the gas and it started to take off. Slowly letting the gas off as it reved up, it started running. I drove it back home. I shut it off, let it sit for about an hour, and started it again, started up fine (but still not like it should, but how it usally does). Also, sometimes it will idle, sometimes it wont. When the heck should I do to try and fix this. I was thinking it might be the electric choke unit, but I am not sure. Any Ideas. Also, It is getting about the same gas milage as it was before the carb rebuild.
