Adjust the choke. If the choke is ok the take the top off the carb first thing in the am and see if the float bowl is dry. If it is dry you need to find out where it is leaking fuel.

Testimonial: "the float bowl has 16mm of fuel as per the manual when you take carby apart choke has been adjusted as per manual no visual signs of air entering the system either"

Fix the choke to work properly for starters next if you still have the original cast iron manifold then get the butterfly in the exhaust to work as well. It heats up the inlet manifold which helps to vaporise the fuel

Yes you can just change the fuel pump, there are genuine and aftermarket options available, You need to remove the original pump from the cradle and this will allow you to confirm the size of the replacement pump.

Car wont start


common problem sounds like the engine is flooded its more than likely the old engine with nicosil coated liners they wear fast due to the high sulphur content in the fuel and loose compression you can restart by putting a small amount of oil down each spark plug hole in to the cylinders you need to check your engine no. with jag dealer to see if it is in the affected range never stop the engine when it is cold

Tractor starts , but wont run


check float level and operation. check that the idle circuit is clean and if there is a solenoid in the idle circuit ensure that it is working. If the fuel tank is above the carby check for filter / line blockage and that the tap is turning on. as from your description the is insufficient fuel getting to the carby and the bowl is running dry

Slightly worked v6 motor and need appropriate carby to fit


I suppose you are thinking holley . Unless you have drastic rework done then most 3 to 4 litre engines will run good with a 450 or 500 holley. Personally I would go for the 450 as too much fuel tends to put out the fire and the full potential of the engine is lost

Eninge wont start unless petrol is tipped down carby. carby is a rochester quadrajet with auto choke .


might have to put a carby kit through it, the jets might be blocked thats what it sounds like. when you poor it in the fuel and air gets in straight away but if the jets are blocked you wont get the fuel through. try carby cleaner, use the accelrator cable on the side of the carby to rev it right up while spraying in carby cleaner car will try die out then let off the accelerator. basically you have to clean your carby out

How do i fix my carb in my 1989 toyota pick up its not getting any gas somewhere


Are you sure its the Carby as it could be the fuel pump as they have a lot of problems with the pumps and so remove the puel pipe from carby and spin over engine.. If still no fuel then go to the fuel filter and if dirty replace it (it should be on the chassis or under the bonnet and try again if still no go then try tipping a small amount down the carby throught and then start if starts the carby float or main jet is faulty /but fuel must come out the fuel lines first
before carby faulty job...

Wont take fuel when first started when cold


ruff guess from the sounds of it your fuel line going to either filter, fuel rail(if multi point) or carby will have a small crack or hole you should see moisture round it when it is running but if carbyed the needle and seat may not be closed properly as ive had the same probs in me old xf 250 cross flow
