Carberator issues - question
Posted 09 May 2012 - 12:15 AM
If I slowly press the gas, it revs up no problem. However, if I step on the gas quickly to give it a rev, the engine completely cuts out, and when I get off the gas, it goes back to an idle.
Could this just be an adjustment with the carberator? Would like to fix it myself rather than brining it in.

It's an adjustment(s), sounds like the accelerator pump was not set up properly.
This would be the plave to start.
Depending on the model, it could be as simple as having an incorrect 'spring'.

Could be a bad throttle spring (although rare) or the accelerator pump (probably the cause coupled with the jets) causing the flooding...fuel filter (which you should change anyway because it's cheap) would only cause this if it was starving the motor of gas, that's why you have to check for the gas odor. If you replace the filter, check the direction arrows for proper installation.
If this is a re-man carb, could be the diaphragm in the fuel pump...it may have been perforated (or installed improperly) during the rebuild. Chances are the pump just needs to be properly adjusted to match your particular vehicle....most of the time these parts are put out there to cover a very wide range of vehicles and will need proper adjusting once installed on yours.
Also, check the plug in cylinder 1...see if it's wet or dry with some sort of white particles on it....that may tell you the direction to go in also. Wet/shiny/smells like unburnt fuel = too much gas...Dry/whitish/no odor = too little gas.

Really sad that my spellchecker doesn't have carberator in it.
