Re: 258 backFIRING through carb
Moneypit is correct, carb flooding is (soon to be WAS) the problem. After sitting all night with fresh fuel in the bowl it started much better today, but still proceeded to load up, sputter and die. I pumped a 50/50 mix of unleaded and fuel system cleaner into it and have been starting it every half-hour, it keeps getting better and better. Tommorrow I'll pull the venturi cluster and clean the idle tubes, along with an ignition tune-up. Thanks, guys.
