carb freezing re-cured....for now
i posted a couple weeks ago about crab freezing, then later about a fix, then a couple days ago about it re-occuring, and now im once again back to say that i think ive figured it out.
i thought that unlikely as it may be, after reading so much here, id throw this on in case there is someone that can benefit from my experience.
anyway, my thermo sensor was opening the valve at idle, so all seemed well when i checked it, but it would close at more than idle, drawing in cold air, and causing the freezing.
so as a temporary fix, till i replace the sensor or till it warms up, i disconnected the vacuum hose to the valve, so it stays shut, disconnected the regular intake hose, and connected the warm air intake to the regular intake.
i wasnt sure if this would bring on overheating issues, as it now cant draw in cold air, but if im not mistaken, there are a few of you doing something similar with webers (i remember reading crows solution to his carb freezing problems) but i tested it today, kept an eye on the temp gauge, and all seemed well. ill take it out this weekend to do the same trip i had problems with teh last few times, but it seems like this is working for now
now that its running well i can start looking for a set of cj fronts for the back! i cant wait to start with the fun mods!! [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
