Re: Adjusting carb (continued)
Ok I redid it as leve suggested.
This time I went from 1600 as a base, and it made it a bit easier as it didn't try to die.
I'm about 2 full turns out, as 1 1/2 seems where it stopped.
It gets really confusing when I get to down to near all the way in, my rpm isn't consistent, and lkes to move up and down..and it can be really hard to see if that 1/2 or 1/4 of a turn even made much difference
I've set the drive idle about about 900, but my idle in park is extremely high.
On vacuum, my guage reads at 15 in drive, and 25 hg in park.
I tried using the vacuum gauge too, but when I got the highest reading, it didn't run all that great and it dieseled like crazy.
25 hg is also out of the range of normal engine readings according to the article I've read, and leve posted.
Its supposed to be anywhere from 17-22 hg.
I'll go out and drive it around, and see how she runs.
You all have been very informative, and I'm hoping this works out well.
The only other thing I could see wrong is possibly the timing.
I asked a while ago on the board, and will replied with 4 degrees.
I don't think I told him what tranny I have, and I don't know if that matters.
Does it?I couldn't find anything about the timing at all.
