Question about 1982 Ford F 150
My truck gets sluggish and looses power and i am wondering if you can help me find a way to get the perfect fuel air mixure? i adjusted the idle screws more then acouple times.. and i can't get it right so can you help me?
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
