1962 Scout Carb Problems
I'm having some problems with my 1 barrel holley carb on my 1962 Scout. I just recently had the engine rebuilt, and took the thing 4x4ing and it behaved horribly. I'm not sure if my scout just doesn't have any power, or if it is carb problems. I'm hoping it's carb problems.
When climbing hills, it feels very under powered. I'll have it floored and, depending on what gear I'm in it'll go slower and slower then stall. Even driving through the hill on a gravel road, I'll have to down shift to second gear from third (which isnt fun), and then even in second it goes slower and slower (with it pinned). I just can't believe they'd make a vehicle so gutless??? Please somebody tell me I have carb problems.
Are there rebuild kits available? Is there ways to adjust this simple carb? How would an improperly adjusted float affect performance.
