Question about 1983 Chrysler Cordoba
Every time i try to start this car it starts spewing gas out of the top of the carb by the air intake venturi i think its called. what can i do about this...i tried rebuilding the carb 2 timed and same problem each time
Did the carb kit come with a new float? It sounds like the float level is not set right, it has a hole in it or the needle is not seating right. If the float is not set correctly it will hit on the carb body before it shuts off the fuel flow with the needle and seat. If the float has a hole in it it will fill with fuel and not float at the proper angle to shut the fuel off when the desired level is reached. Remove the top of the carb and inspect the float when closed it should be just about level with the top plate from the carb. Shake the float and see if you hear any liquid in the float. Also are you running a mechanical or electric pump? Mike
P.S. I myself have forgotten to install the needle in a carb rebuild.
Let me know how you make out.
