need fuel and carb help
« on: June 18, 2011, 04:28:41 PM »
I just bought an 85 fl350and the previous owner just rebuilt it with weisco .060mm pistons, it also has an dg pipe on it. He said it needed a carb jet kit put in it. It starts with the choke  on, but take the choke off and it dies. its like it runs out of gas. ive cleaned the carb and fuel pump. ive messed with the air screw and the only way to get it to run half ass is with it screwed all the way in.  Im thinking someone screwed the air screw in all the way hard and damaged the carb. ive took off the check valve and checked that like the manuel says to and its fine. i took  the carb off and took the fuel line going to the carb and turned it over to watch if any gas comes out and none would come out inless i took my hand and covered the intake manifold, is that normal? If anyone ccould help, that would be awsome! I've never had a motor stump me, but this one has been a hard one. Thanks for any info!!!!!!!

Probably an air leak, most likely crank seals, possibly cracked intake boot.
