Sounds like your carb needs to have the jets adjusted. 2 ways around the problem: 1. Spray starter fluid in the top of the carb before starting. or 2. Pump the gas pedal about 8 times before trying to start.

Will not start after sitting

Make sure your accelerator pump is working. When you press the pettel it should squrt gas down the barrel

Enith carburetor diagram

Nobody has messed around with the ignition timing in any way?

If it has stood for a long time(i.e years..) the fuel may have degraded to the point that it\'s useless.

The carbs will smell of fuel, but are you sure that fuel is being pumped to them in sufficient quantity? Try disconnecting a fuel line, crank the engine a few revolutions to see if fuel is pumped out.

Try gravity feeding the carbs. Use a can of fuel connected to the carbs, held above the engine. Get somebody to crank the engine and see if it fires up. If the engine fires up, suspect the fuel pump.. or fuel lines.

An air leak can also cause non-starting. The usual cause is the inlet manifold gasket. Any air leaking through the gasket can cause your non-starting problem. Go back and check that no dirt has been picked up by the gasket before you fitted it/it hasn\'t been ripped. Check that the inlet manifold has been correctly tightened.

It doesn\'t sound as though you have much of a problem .. more of a \'niggle\'.

Switch to gas

check the solenoid on petrol line from fuel pump to carburettor is switching off petrol to carburettor when switching, you should hear the solenoid clicking when operating. Alternatively you can disonnect pipe fueline at carburettor, turn key ,if petrol comes out of line make sure it shuts off when you turn switch from petrol to LPG

Car is fine at norma speeds. Car does not accelerate when you step ******* the gas.

Get some Carburettor cleaner spray from an auto center.
Take the pipe off into the air filter unit attached to the Carburettor it normally has a large ring clip around the black pipe so you may be able to use a slot screwdriver or a small ratched driver to remove.
Put a small piece of cloth into the carburettor unit to stop too much contamination going back into the system . Use a cloth or paper towel to wipe off any excess oil inside the carburettor. Spray the carburettor cleaner inside the unit , Using an old Tootchbrush give it a rub to degrease the old oil and fuel. Be careful to Open up the open and closing circular small valve spray a little bit of cleanir inside and using a long piece of cloth clean any contaminated area inside the carburettor.
Dont ruch this and get as much old oil and grease from inside the carburettor as you can. Taking care to remove all the bits of cloth and paper tissue . .
Start the car up with the Carburettor still open to the world.
With the car running and the Carburettor opening and closing spray a little more of the cleaner using the straw in the nozzle into the inside , please make sure you are standing to the side so nothing comes back out into your eyes.

With the carburettor now much cleaner . Put the air pipes back on and take it for a run . At your next fill up of fuel put in a fuel addative for Engine System cleaning and this should help with the emissions.

Giday mark there may be a filter inside of fitting which fuel hose/s attaches to it'll be a fine mesh if it's there. It's unusual for there to be a ball before the needle and seat unless it's to restrict fuel return line.
It's also possible that the needle is worn to the point where it jams in the seat in which case it'll need replacing

I have a 86 ford bronco ll and i was coming home and it was jurking and acting like every time i put the pettel down it boged down and died out, i sit about 15 mins. and it started up i got into town and...

I'd use a gage and check correct fuel pressure? 2.9L engine, my info says 35--45 psi. If fuel pump has a problem, make sure gas tank is clean?
The engine cranks ok, but, won't start? Did you check spark at the plugs engine cranking? I'm just trying to decide if you have more than one issue?
