Re: Adjust. Jets BBD Carb
I guess I should update my profile.
I currently run only 1 Weber, that's on my 85 4cyl. I thought that Webers were the only answer, until I started experimenting with an old BBD.I also thought that the HEI was a great ignition until TR gave us the TR cap upgrade and MSD box.
We are a big Jeep family here in rural CT.
Currently we are running 5 carbed 6 cyls., all of them have modified BBDs, they all have the TR ignition with TFI coil, and 2 have MSD boxes.
I'm not against changing directions, if there is a better road to take.
As for the choke, I just use the original choke wire.
I can think of 3 reasons for hard cold starts.
Choke not adjusted properly, the choke should close completely when the throttle is first opened, then move to a slightly opened position after startup, then slowly open all the way.
Accelerator pump not working, look down the carb throat while pumping throttle, you should see 2 steady streams of fuel. For cold starts you need to get some fuel injected into that engine.
Fast idle not right, for an engine to stay running cold it has to idle up to about 1500 rpm.
Hope this helps
BTW, I have a complete,like new Weber 32/36 forsale, with instructions, with fuel pressure regulator, $200, you pay shipping.
Oh yea, the metering rod adjusting screw is under the cover at the front of the carb, take out the 3 screws and you'll see the rods going down into the bowl, the screw is on top of the rod holder.
Funny thing is, the more I practice, the luckier I get
