Carburettor Connections

Recommended Posts

Hi, Please could someone let me know what the electrical connector on the right hand side on the picture is for. Not the connection for the electric choke but there is another electrical connector that I have no idea what it is for? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Sounds important, should this be connected to something?

Because I do not have an ECM module or anything to connect it to?

 

should I have posted this in electrics section of the forum!!

Well if it is a fuel cut off valve, then it needs to be connected to a switched live as otherwise the car wont start.

I think it's a 30/34 DFTH ? Not familiar with this carb but could it be the anti run on (anti dieseling) valve?

I think its a Webber 26/30 DFTH....got it from a scrap yard as it matched the bolt pattern on my manifold. I know its a small venturi but hopefully it will get me running. The pinto is running although idling very fast at the moment.

 

I am currently checking for vacuum leaks and if that doesnt work I am going to try to retard the points dizzy a bit.

 

I wanted to check that mysterious connection was not the reason I had a high idle speed. It is currently not connected to anything but the engine starts no problem, its just too eager.

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated on this. thank you
