I have a 1989 u11 bluebird with a ca20 carb, my problem is it wont start. if i fill up the carb float with gas it will start sweet and run till the float is empty, i've checked the fuel lines and none are blocked which led me to think the pump might be gone so i replaced it and still no joy, what could it be?

SOURCE: Fuel Pump Relay Switch

Underneath your hood, behind the passenger side headlight, behind the core support, is a bank of 2-8 relays. One of those relays is the relay needed for your fuel pump. There will also be a fuel pump relay fuse located there. The relay designation should be on the cover of the relay compartment.

After you dump the fuel in the throttle body it will continue to run on its own or die as soon as it burns up all the fuel you dump in? Do you have access to (Noid lights)? Are both plugs attached to the distributor?

Check the carburetor to make sure the choke butterfly is closing after you tap the gas pedal once, if not clean it with carb spray and all that linkage on the carb as well, it is likely just fouled ans stuck from gas residue.

is the needle opeoning on the float in the carb? The fuel bowl should be about half full all the time. As fuel pressure flows into the needle & seat, it fills the fuel bowl until the float pushes the needle into the eat. Sometimes the rubber tipped needle can stick in the seat.

If you can spray carb cleaner in the carb then you have either a fuel supply problem or fuel delivery problem. Check your fuel pressure and make sure it is in spec. Then check the spray in the carb spray.

Yesterday I replaced the carb on my 89 jeep wrangler. Twice. Both times when I turn the ignition over it doesn't start but instantly floods the carb with gas. Why and how do I fix this?


Sounds like a stuck or defective float.(perhaps a hole in it). Also check the needle valve for operation and if its installed correctly. That is connected to the float

1979 sierra grande runs too righ even after adjusting carb


You may have an internal carb gasket leak or your floats may be adjusted too high.After you run the truck look into the carb to see if there is gas still dripping into the carb bore.Also after running with engine on remove the front fuel level check screw. (have lots of rags under to catch fuel) Fuel level should be right below hole.If it is spilling out it is too high.Floats need to be adjusted up for fuel level to go down.

My 80 ford f150 v8 302 wont start up i


if this is a 1980 F150, emissionwiz is correct in saying it has a carburetor, if your engine runs on ether, you do not have fuel supply to the engine. Check fuel delivery at the front of carburetor, should be a line screwed into the carb, may be connected by a rubber hose, remove this line and crank engine, look to see fuel is gushing out of the line, if no fuel the pump is bad, check fuel lines back to pump for leaks, replace leaking lines if necessary. If you get fuel then your float inside the carb is stuck, and the carb will need some attention, hope this helps, let me know

Engine will crank but will not turn over


Do this, take the top off the carb, being careful not to damage the gasket. Then take some carb cleaner and clean out the bowl and floats. Remove the needle valve and clean it out. Put it all back together and filling the bowl with carb cleaner. Start it with the starting fluid. Once you run the carb cleaner through it, it should start to run on it's own. Whatever you do don't shut it off for about 20-30 min unless you have to.

Gas leaking out of a 1983 cordoba top of carburetor


Did the carb kit come with a new float? It sounds like the float level is not set right, it has a hole in it or the needle is not seating right. If the float is not set correctly it will hit on the carb body before it shuts off the fuel flow with the needle and seat. If the float has a hole in it it will fill with fuel and not float at the proper angle to shut the fuel off when the desired level is reached. Remove the top of the carb and inspect the float when closed it should be just about level with the top plate from the carb. Shake the float and see if you hear any liquid in the float. Also are you running a mechanical or electric pump? Mike
P.S. I myself have forgotten to install the needle in a carb rebuild.

Let me know how you make out.
