200 CID carb issues (Autolite 1100)
I have a 1965 Convertible with the 6cyl 200 CID. The engine is completely rebuilt. In fact everything from the firewall forward is brand new. It has an HUI distributor and a mild performance cam for additional low end torque. I had the Autolite 1100 professionally rebuilt by folks in the old car biz (unfortunately, not a Pony Carb rebuild). I can't get this car to run smoothly. It cuts out, dies when you put it in gear, idles rough, etc. I've adjusted the carb and timing till I'm blue in the face. I've checked the valve adjustment three times. The gas tank is new and the gas lines are clean. My fuel pressure is 8lbs with a fuel pressure regulator holding it at 4.5 lbs.
This is my 19th old Mustang, but my first 6 cyl. I've always avoided them. Any ideas out there?!?
