weber swap woes
Posted 31 August 2009 - 03:21 PM
Still won't run right after doing a weber swap. It ran ok before on the hitachi. Then I ran into some problems with it not wanting to run. Took it to a shop where they informed me that it had a vacuum leak somewhere and that they would rebuild it for 300 bucks. Instead they turned up the idle, so that it wouldn't die on me. So i ran it like that for about 6 months before i finally had all the stuff i needed to do the weber swap.
It hasn't run right since.
Is there a good write up somewhere (with pictures) so i could go back over my work and check to make sure i did everything right?
this link doesnt work
and this one doesn't have pictures
and if anyone has any ideas, or an insurance claim and napalm, feel free to mock me in my despair

It won't idle. It either runs at 2000 rpm or higher, or it doesnt run at all.
Used Weber or brand new?
I would say you have a good sized vacuum leak or a clogged idle jet.
