WEll I have gone over the posts on idle problems and lots of info here.
May I put in a query?. Somewhere I read on the forum that a vacuum
hose may be the cause of a carburetor not idling correctly (or at all).
my wife came thru the door saying "I have bad news" the car is
stalling whenever I apply the brakes (and take foot off gas pedal)
I take off the air filter top and have her gun the engine while I apply
a clean rag over the open carb and stall it out, I do this a few times... hoping that
some grit from the petrol tank may have lodged and will get sucked thru and everything will be fine. Worked once in
I adjusted the idling screw...I think I did. IT is the one that had an aluminium plug over it??? Isn't it?
I drilled out that plug a month ago when I had the same problem. Tuned the car (new plugs and adjusted dizzy)
changed the petrol filter today (located in front of the r rear wheel) just to
make sure for the future...but for now I cannot get the carby to idle.
WELL sometimes it idles roughly at a stop....but mostly stalls when I take foot off gas)
Some people say take it apart and clean it .. ( I have a mechanics manual and the number of parts noted is incredible.) CAn I take it apart in sections so that not every washer and spring is there to be lost.
What else can I try without taking it apart?. Using a carby kit ...is that the same as a rebuild....? (dumb question but I have to ask)
( I have an EA82 engine)
