Hopefully tomorrow if I can find some GT time at work, Dad is wide open right now on getting some paying work out the door. :(

I finally had time today to finish installing the engine. It cranked over but didn't have fire to the coil, I found out the ignition switch turns too far past start and must go past the contacts. Once I figured that out, it fired right up and idled well on my initial settings after rebuilding the Carb. When I went to high idle, it runs so rich that it actually starts missing out. the Zenith Carb. has the high side fixture screw under the bowl which is almost impossible to adjust with everything else on top of the engine. I believe I have it turned in all the way and it's better, but still rich and the low mix screw is only now at 1/4 turn open.

 

Any ideas on what might be going on??

Could the float be too high?

Maybe the adjustment needle has been broken off?  Float high as Kenny said/  Is the return line still going back to the tank?  If not, maybe the float needle is being overwhelmed?

I set the float, but it could be too high and as for the return line it to is hooked up and is clear and flowing. I guess I will have to pull the Carb. and recheck the float and check the end of the needle.

It's running a lot better now. I reset the float a little more shallow and found that the main jet was still open almost 2 turns. I thought I had set it at 1 1/4 turns to begin with, but I guess not. It's now open about 1 turn and the idle is now at 3/4 turns. I also noticed I have a vibration in the driveshaft and will have to pull the flex plates out and check them.

Glad it was halfway simple on the fix! Good luck on the vibration!

Here's a short video of the drive shaft. What do you think, are the coupling flex plates bad?

I passed out after supper & not so coherent right now.  Hard to say.  Looks almost like the holes in the discs may be elongated.

I will drop it out and see if that's what it is, I hope that is it.

I'm also trying out some of the Kaowool that we use in the Air Pre-Heaters build. I put a 1" blanket under the muffler and between the exhaust and intake manifolds. I'm hoping it will farther insulate the battery from the muffler.

What are those 'discs' made of?

That is BOUND to help keep heat away from both the carb & the battery!  Does it hold together well so it won't start shedding?

Daniel, It seems to hold up well to the air turbulence in the Air Heaters, I will just have to watch it and see how it does in this application.

 

KaoWool is a great high temperature insulation. Kaowool is the original asbestos replacement material that is good to  2,400°F / 1,315°C, 6 PCF (Pounds per Cubic Foot) density material in 1/2 inch through 2 inch blanket.
