Motorcraft 2100 on hills
Just a quick note on my experience today with my favorite smooth idling carb at the local gravel pits. It idles just as smoothly at a severe upward incline. I finally stalled the motor trying to idle up a hill with it, barely a foot on the gas. Can't see how fuel injection could have helped me climb higher, as eventually the tires just spun. I never had problems with the old carter climbing hills, although I felt it lost power at inclines and I stalled it many times climbing sand hills with full throttle once the wheels dug in deep. It was like that sand was a dynamometer sucking up all 120 hp from my trusty 258 once mommentum ruan out and the wheels got half burried in sand. Won't be till summer that I get a chance to try the sand hills out with the MC2100.
