Running very rich

Postby Johnno » Sun Mar 22, 2020 7:33 am

Hi all,after a carb rebuild on my ‘52,I am having trouble with very rich mixture.Nothing I do seems to make any difference to this.I have checked and rechecked the carb and can see nothing wrong.Am I missing something.
Also,are the jet seals available separately?Or is there an alternative?
Thanks,John.
Power to your Pistons,Johnnydoome.

Have you checked and if necessary adjusted the float chamber fuel level?

See the Burlen Fuels web site for a breakdown of the parts available.
