Might have figured it out: bad power valve.

Thanks that helped! I agree, it is getting to be a forgotten art. I've never been very good at tuning by ear, so I usually left it to others. Can't afford to do that now. Thanks again.

Looking for a stock steering wheel...what fits a 74 f100?

The PO (or maybe the one before that) put on a tiny grant wheel, and I want to put it back to stock (or at least closer to stock), but I don't want to pay for a new one from a vendor. What years and...

Ok I've adjusted the float again. It's lower than the carb instructions say it should be and things seem better. I no longer hear bubbling, or smell raw gas. It seemed to start easier as well, but...

hard starting, and bubbling carb.

I've got a '74 F100 with a 302 and motorcraft carb. I installed a petronix and set the timing to 8 BDC (it doesn't start at 10 or 12), and I can get it to start and it seems to run pretty well. But...
