Re:Carb Question!

It's been a long time since I have had to deal with an Autolite 2 barrel carb. like the ones that come stock on 60's small-block Fords, but they are very simple carbs. Since it appears that your carb worked fine before you opened it up, I would recomend a close examination of the need and seat assembly, float and float level adjustment (but while you are at it, DO check the fuel pump pressure). Make sure that the seat is secure and has the proper gasket. Check the float assembly to make sure the pivot is secure (as I recall, there is a spring wire piece that holds the rod that the float pivots on in place). Check for debris caught in the needle & seat. Oh yeah, make sure that the float actually floats. Lastly, if you suspect that the top gasket may be the culpit, make sure that it does not interfere with the float operation.
