Carb not working properly?
Posted by: 4wd430 ()

Hey guys, can you please take a look at this quick vid I took.

Does my right carb not spray correctly? The left side carb sprays a good strong stream out the hole but the right carb seems to have a weaker more drip like stream from another hole.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Correct... take it apart and clear all passages.... if that doesn't make it like the Driver's side.... replace Accel pump cup. And re-test.

60 and secondary carbs with accel pumps only have one hole. IIRC


The two hole bases... just use a bristle from a brush...

To take it all apart do I just remove the top part and try clearing that out with carb cleaner? Or do I have to really disassemble it? I would hate to have to do that as it's a rebuilt unit.

Rebuilt how long ago?

Take the top off Look for debris in the fuel bowl.

Check the level of the fuel in the carb. Should be 1/4" - 3/8" from the top (memory?) - depending on how the float is set.

The accelerator pump will come off with the top. Check the condition of the cup.

If worn / deteriorated - replace it.

Check the condition of the accelerator pump well - sides should be smooth.

Check the condition for the brass fuel filter - should be clean. Though a shellacked one will look clean.

Check the accelerator pump discharge hole(s). Use a bristle from an old toothbrush.

Just taking the carb apart and blowing out passages will not hurt anything!

Just do not BEND anything..

Haven't gotten around to do anything due to the cold weather but took another video today.

I noticed that the carb sprays well if I jab the throttle suddenly. However, when I more slowly hit the throttle, I get no spray.
