Need help: MC2100/2150 power valve adjust...
'85 AMC 360
I took the carb off and then the cover, and the float bowl was almost empty. So I held the carb up and poured gas in the float bowl and watched where it came out the bottom - through the power valve.
So now I've diagnosed the problem. Can someone tell me how to fix it? And if I need a new valve, where do I get it and which one? The search came up with lots of different valve numbers and colors and stages and brands and stuff, but that's way over my head. I don't want performance - I just want the damn thing to work and maybe get better gas mileage. Oh, and I called NAPA and gave them the number off the tag. It didn't come up with anything. Maybe it's not the original tag?
Edit: After fiddling with it, I filled the float back up and it held, so I emptied it and sucked from the bottom of the power valve (any idea how bad gas tastes?). I then filled it back up again, and it leaked again. Bleh.
