This may be caused by a bad intake valve or cam, start by doing a compression test on all cylinders to see if one has low compression, also check the firing order, make sure wires are on the cap the right way. hope this helps.

83 ford f-250 351. starts but will not idle


If its a (holley) motorcraft 2 bbl carb sounds like the power valve. They typically blow out whenever the engine backfires or they just wear out after time and flood the idle circuit.

Need to change engines


If you have a 22r carbed then all 22r carbed engines from 1981-1995 will interchange. You may need to use sensor out of your old engine however. The 20r,22r,22re,22ret all have the same mounts and tranny bolt patterns. how ever there are lot of differences. you can swap from a 22r to a 22re but you must also swap the entire vehical wiring harness to do it right. if you have a 3.0L i would keep the same engine. some people have swap to the tacoma 3.6L but that is a expensive swap not exsactly bolt on so to say. If you have a 22re then stay with the 1986-1987 22re because the newer 22re use different computers, electronics ,sensors and more.. Same story with the 22ret. I hoped this helped.

HIGH IDLE AFTER HAVING NEW TIMING CHAIN INSTALLED,ALSO TAPPING NO


Hi,I have a 85 nissan 720 4x4 2.4 with a Weber carb,never had to mess with the timing chain,but I do have another engine in it.These trucks have carb, issues,I got rid of my stock carb,couldn't do nothing with it,dealer said they were junk,so I put a Weber on it and it is so awesome now.The valves should be adjusted when the engine is hot.Could be the person that put the new timing chain in did it wrong.Here's a video I did after I installed the Weber carb.I never had a issue with having to adjust the valves.My old carb at the end would always idle high.The timing might not of been set right with the new timing chain.I have the factory repair manual I bought from the nissan dealer.I've had my Truck since 92,it's mint,speedo has 343,000 miles on it,Jasper engine has 53,000 miles on it,transmission is a remanufactured one,it has 3000 miles on it. 85 Nissan 720 4x4 2 4 Weber conversion Here's the carb I put on it.Here's a cool Nissan 720 site to join,it cost 5 bucks,I am a member,it's like a forum where 720 owners react with helping each other,you have a page where you can post pics of your ride and you can see other peoples 720's. http://720world.com/Weber Carb Conversion fits Nissan Pickup 83 86 Z24 Electric Choke Weber...

83 toyota p.u. 4x4 running rough.


I think you must have the carburettor plunger not going well as you are getting flat spots under sudden acceleration, I think the best way to go is to get the carburettor overhauled.

Carbs on a 1982 ford 4x4 6.4L 300-6 4 gear standard


make sure you have no vacum leaks first. And your timing is correct, spark plugs, wires,cap, and rotor are all in good condition. After that run the screw in clockwise untill the engine begins to run rough, stop and back it out 1/2 turn. There is another adjustment the metering rod inside the carb, remove the top of the carb. Adjust the rod screw 3/4 of a turn (clockwise for more fuel counter clockwise for less fuel). It take alot of time, make sure you keep track of your adjustments incase you go the wrong way
