Title: Rebuilt Carb No Start
Post by: mike on March 16, 2012, 12:02:09 PM


i put it on the car tightened it down hooked up the manual choke and throttel fresh gas and i tried starting it but all im getting is a quick fire then nothing wont stay running at all? i checked and when i step down on it .it sprats gas so idk. Any help would be good i remeasured the floats it says there suppose to be a 1/4

Check the spark. Do you have the idle screws set at 2 turns out?

TEMPORARILY, run a jumper wire across the ballast resistor and see if she starts. If she does, shut her off and remove the wire, replace the ballast resistor.

i was jw it seems to fire on cranking motion when once cranking stops its like the firing stops. Im going tomarrow change oil/filter/new plugs/points/ put the coil back in the holder and the resistor mount on firewall then try it.

Your video is private, so as Steve said, we can't look at it. If you say it sounds like it will run with the key engaged, but stops as soon as the key is from start to run and dies, it is the ballast resistor. Sometimes they go out at the strangest times.

Check the float level.  I went through much of this recently.

Are the plugs getting wet?

It's not the ballast resistor with that sound, it is still not getting enough fuel. I take it you didn't mess with the timing so won't go there. Try this. Set the choke. Hit the gas once and see if it adjusts automatically, and if not, either adjust, or simply manually close it on the gateways and get her running, worry about the adjustments after you get her running. The choke isn't closing enough to make her run.
 
 I didn't see you pump the gas at all, something that has to be done with carb'd engines, which don't work the same as the EFI systems.
 



So, pump the gas pedal twice, verify the choke closes (if it doesn't, do it manually and make it hold on the counterweight gateway), then get in and turn the key.

update thank god it didnt run i drained the oil and its full of gas!. pulled the plugs out and they to were wet and nasty. in the video befor i turned cam on i pumped gas its getting gas lol im going to pull me carb back apart and check the float adj  again. Im right now changing the oil and putting in the new plugs then removing the carb. and then remount me coil/resistor put new points in. also the choke plate on top does close all the way.

OK, if he has fuel in the oil, he must have the line from the bottle to the fuel pump to the carb, not from the carb to the bottle alone, right? Right?

 
 I hope anyway.

Mike, pumps for those are easy to get at the local parts store.  But try to stay away from Autozone.

As i said i said it wrong in the video i ment to say bypassed the fuel tank the lines are hooked up from bottle to pump filter then carb.   Also does anyone know a carb that would interchange with an electric choke?
Title: Rebuilt Carb No Start
Post by: mike on March 17, 2012, 06:39:33 PM


the pump works great i checked it and its been replaced once allready

If you have to, remove the top of the carb and see if it is full of gas, and if it is overflowing, adjust the float, and if you really have to, a gravity feed hose from a bottle and hang it on the hood latch overhead so the gas is above the carb, just to make sure it isn't the ignition.
 
As far as electric choke, why would you want to do that at this point? That is one beautiful carb sitting there, you just have to do some tweaking before cleaning everything else up.

 UPDATE:  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif) Car is running like a kitten! i put the new spark plugs (really nasdty) Put new points in/new conectors to the coil/resistor. Pulled the carb off and  reset float and found out my aux pump in the carb wasnt set right. Changed the oil/filter new fuel filter and she's running really good. Just need to adj the idle and fine tune carb a little. Also did a compression test and got around 140-150 :D

Good Job

Good deal on everything, and great job. Now spend some time and straighten some of those wiring rat's nests all over the place, for safety if nothing else.

You can get the appropriate wire wrap on eGay pretty cheap too

i love wiring actually one of the things i enjoy. And yes if you could i wanted to do that from the start go. Thanks

That's the stuff they use in automotive.  Far cheaper then trying to buy it in the auto parts store.  I buy the 100 foot rolls.  They have all kinds of connectors in there too.  I think they have the spade connectors you need to rebuild the plugs too.

When you get to the point of wrapping the wires with tape, go down to an electronics store and get the cloth tape by 3M. If feels sticky, but it goes away real fast after it is taped, it does wear out after more than a decade, but it doesn't get affected by oil or unfrays the way the plastic tape does. Hate that stuff.

Looms are OK if that's what you like. Personally, I can't stand them, especially when you have those tiny ones because you only have seven wires that are supposed to be there, not including the harness going to the headlights and turn signals (a bundle of six wires).

 
A hot pink one going from the bulkhead connector to the alternator and wires popping out of it every foot or so would look pretty cool!
