I've been working on my '80 F100 for about a month and a half now and have been doing some great work for teaching myself as I go. Just recently my Bro-In-Law has been over and decided to work on my truck while I was out there and now I can barely get the truck to move. I think that all he did was fiddle with my carb, any ideas??
If he was messing with the carb, check the air mixture screw, turn it in to it stops, do not tighten, then open @ 2 turns and see how it runs. Did he change the timing?
