This is just a general carb question, hope someone is kind enough to
answer... (no luck so far in the Jeep n.g.)
actually has to do with a CJ7 Jeep, 258, stock Carter BBD carb rebuilt 6
years ago. If I'm at idle and just barely feather the gas it almost
wants to stall out. A nice firm press of the gas pedal and it
accelerates fine. Upon further inspection, I noticed that the fuel that
comes out of the 2 venturi nozzles in the carb dribble out unevenly when
throttle is applied... now if I remember correctly TB injectors are
supposed to spray fine even mists into the engine. Does this same
principle hold for carburetor fuel delivery?
I went ahead and removed the venturi cluster, cleaned out the idle
pickup tubes, venturi nozzles, and anything with a passage with some
guitar wire. They weren't plugged and I got the same result afterwards.
I'm thinking that when feathering the gas pedal, the uneven dribble of
fuel causes it to run rich and stumble. Is this normal carb behavior or
am I looking at some sort of internal carb wear. Thanks for any info.
