Re: BBD fast idle woes

Where are you from? If I can find where I threw that damn Carter at when I took it off it should still be on there. Let me know where you are at and I will see if it is still laying in my barn next to my trot lines as that is about all it is good for!! A trot line weight. Take my advice and get a Q-jet and throw the carter as far as you can. You can get a Q-jet at any junk yard and rebuild it cheap and never worry again.

Re: BBD fast idle woes

I wasn't aware the BBD was even around back in '78. My '74 232 uses a Carter YF 1 barrel, and its a damned good carb! My friends '78 Cherokee has the same carb on his 258 and it worked even though he had it caked with mud constantly (and ran often with no air filter) The earlier non-stepped BBDs weren't a bad carb either. They aren't anything real special but they are pretty reliable.
