Question about 1984 Ford Mustang
*UPDATE* I finally got my motor to fire and run but it doesnt seem to have good air/fuel ratio. I can get it to run but I have to keep feathering the gas to keep it running or it will just die. I have a holly 4-barrel carb. Motor is a Ford 302ci. Any suggestions? thanks.
You need to check if the Idle control jets are set properly, these are the 2 screws near the base plate on this type of carburettor.
Screw them fully in, then on the primary side screw it out 2.5 turns.
On the secondary side screw this out 1.75 turns. This should get your idle up.
If this dosn't work then you have got problems with the idle jet system which means you need to pull the emulsion tubes out and jets out to clean them.
Also check that your Idle screw is screwed in enough to allow the throttle to be open enough to idle.
Hope this helps
