It started with a slightly overheated engine, then it wouldn't idle and now my cat is blocked,. GRRRRRR:banghead:

On the way home this-morning, I had trouble reaching over 50km\h and the engine was making a hissing and squeeling sound when I reved it. I walked around my car and noticed that the sound from the tail pipe was not the regular "dub dub dub dub".... it was a "shhhhhhhhhhhhh"

I assume that my carb is running rich (skip suggested fuel percolation and sinking float valve-> dunmping fuel) and the excess fuel has cooked my cat.

What to do,......

I was planning a new exhaust system but not this soon

Does anyone have a detailed explanation of how to fix my carb?
