Weber Carb

Recommended Posts

Pinto engine was running fine on twin choke Weber but now misfires, and struggles, black soot around exhaust tail pipe, spark plugs wet with petrol.

 

Any ideas?

Needle valve passing fuel so fuel level too high? Could be worn needle or just stuck.

Thanks Guys

 

Exactly as you said with needle valve. Off on holiday this week so first job on return. Luckily my new next door neighbour works for a company that restores classic Aston Martins. (currently working on a £385,000 DB3. He also worked on the development arm of Ford AVO. He can rebuild a Pinto in the dark.

 

Lucky or what?

 

Paul
