Question about 1988 Ford Thunderbird
1965 Thunderbird has a problem when the car is shut off when warm the gas starts to kind of perculate in the carburator and runs into the engine until the fuel emptys from the bowl. The engine is new the carburator is new and it doesn't run hot. Car runs great other than that. Did the same thing with the old motor and carburator. Radiator and water pump are new also.
There is exhaust that runs from head to head under carburetor . there should be a damper that opens when cold and closes when hot . when it stays open after motor reaches operating temperature gas in bowl boils and gas is a vapor instead of a mist and causes motor to run lean .
