Okay so I know this says 79 through 95 but I have a 71 Mach 1 with a 302 carbureted engine in it and I need some help
Okay so first off I have a Elderbrock (or however you spell it ) carburetor 700 CFM's and I just replace the gasket between the intake and the carburetor cause it was bad. Now it's running like ***** when you put it in gear when it's in park or neutral it runs fine but when he put it in reverse or drive it starts running like ***** and stalls out also sometimes it's really hard this start after it's been running (after stalls out)because I think the choke is staying open and it's doing something I don't know but it's hard to start so I need some help with this anybody have an idea about anything
Sounds like the float is sticking...when you changiged the gasket did you flip over or move carb alil too much??? ---------- Post added at 10:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:28 PM ---------- Recheck your vacuum lines...
no It was doing this even before I replaced the gasket
I would say it's the timing. I adjusted mine to 14 degrees BTC and it started running like **** when I'd put it in gear but it'd run fine in neutral or park. So I adjusted the throttle plate when in gear with the e brake on, just so it wouldn't choke out. It runs perfectly fine now.
