1 barrel runs rich

I saw my old post about carter carbs running smooth at idle....

Well it has been running rich and I have only about 1/4 turn on the mixture screw left before it closes. what do I need? new jets?

It still idles really good...just runs rich

Re: 1 barrel runs rich

Good one

I was really just waiting for the darn thing to die. But it runs really good! I know... "UNBELIEVABLE"

It starts without any hesitation and always idles fine, Doesn't have much oomph but it is a 1barrel.

I was just trying to get some advice on what to do to lean it out a little rather than junk a running carb for one of the superior upgrades.

still your idea is tempting
