My truck has problems starting. It will turn over after a few seconds, idle rough than stall out. I do this 2-3 times and eventually it will idle correctly and stay running. I read a post and one member suggested to a guy that it was an issue with the choke. I am not very knowledgeable about engine repair but I am a fast learner. Any info you need to help me out, I will do my best to provide. Thanks
Thanks Pop and nice to meet you. I know its a motorcraft but not sure which one. It has the housing for an electric choke (some of it) but it was converted to a manual choke and its home made. I was just researching the MC 2150 and learning about the different parts of the carb so what your saying sounds familiar but I will have to look at a diagram. I will take a picture of it when I get home tonight. I live in Riverside. Thanks again
I wont be able to work on her until this Saturday, I work 10+ and i get home too late to crank her up or anything. I will check back in periodically over the next few days and come Saturday I will be ready to proceed. I didnt expect anyone to answer so fast, Your Awesome Pop!
Yeah, we like to keep 'Awesome Pop' around for these types of challenges!
