Cant get my corvair running right
Posted by: Tre107 ()

I have a 102hp corvair that has newly rebuilt carbs that wont run right. I was wondering if my main vacume advanced line that goes into the engine being loose and able to pull out easily by hand is effecting that. It runs good when you rev it but even with the idle screw all the way in it wont idle. How do I set the screws and get this thing to run right?

In our FAQ's "Balancing Carbs"

Back screws out about 1.5 turns from lightly seated as a start. Then adjust to get even steady idle. I believe the procedure is in the FAQs.

Those are idle air mixture screws. They adjust the amount of fuel added to the idle mixture. There is no adjustment exterior to the carburetor for mixture at speed.

Check the air balance tube rubber hoses.Probably big vacuum leak there.
