Carb gives all, not enuogh!!!

I kind of have to take a run at the hills and just stay on it to make it to the top being I run 31's and all stock gears and engine. This past weekend I was running into trouble when the hills got a little steep at the top and my carb would just bogg out on me and the engine died. I have no trouble climbing steep hills as long as they are short if not and I stay on an incline for too long the engine boggs out.

Is this a normal problem with stock carbs, or is this even a carb problem I think I may possibly have exaust problems? Like a clogged cat or something, could that smother the motor?

What do you all think?

I would realy appreciate some help on this one, this problem realy scares me after this past weekend(please read flipper post). If my girlfriend would have been along she would probably not go with me ever again. I have to get this fixed. If anyone has tests for me to do to track down this problem or if you know what it is and how to fix it that would be great. Thanks lol FT

Re: Carb gives all, not enuogh!!!

That sounds like a common problem. Steep hills are tough on a carburated rig. Even with a weber carb, it has to be rotated 180 degrees to attain optimal performance, but then going down a steep hill can be a problem. EFI is the best, but for now you'll just have to learn how to play the pedal.
A clogged cat (exhaust) can also cause stalling, but you'd notice that on the straight, flat road too. If it's just uphill when the problem occurs, I'd say it's just not getting the gas.

Re: Carb gives all, not enuogh!!!

So what do you just pump on the pedal and hope for the best as you go flying down the steep hill backwards into the group of onlookers? Would a rebuilt carb help? How do you play the pedal? Will my lower geared calmini Tcase help with this problem?

<font color=blue>My stock carb purrs at inclines. I was on helicopter pad and stalled it and I thought for sure it wouldn't start again and it did. It sat there idling with no problems.

Re: Carb gives all, not enuogh!!!

sounds more like a gear problem than anything else. you are just running out of power, you loose your rpms and it just bogs down. get a 4.16 t case and i bet you fixes your carb problem. mike

i agree with mike ...the stock gears are the problem...even f.i. engines will stall on a long hill with out proper gearing to copensate for larger tires .
