Question about Ford Futura
I have a 1962 ford falcon, It has an 1100 holley carb that ran ''poorly''
I pulled it and had it rebuilt. upon initial acceleration, the car cuts out and dies. If I floor it I can get past the ''dead spot'' and keep it running UNTILL someone can by who said they can fix it and now it won't even start! Aaaargh! I would like to find the original setttings and find out why it is dying on me. Can anyone out there help?
If you can get the carb kit it will have the proper adjustments listed. It sounds like the floats are not adjusted properly.If you can open the bowl and adjust the float up just a little,this will alow a little more gas to stay in the bowl as you take it out.If the float is adjusted down too far you will use the gas before you can replace it in the bowl.good luck!
