First of all, If I planned on keeping my 2f permanently I would throw this thing in the trash. But for now I need to make it work. My truck was running fine, then it got hot here. It would start up no problem when cold 1st thing in the morning. But whenever I would go out mid day for lunch, it would act like it was flooded. Basically the last 2 weeks I have had to hold my foot to the floor and crank the thing until it fired every day at lunch and leaving every night. But when it was warm, just hit the key and it fires instantly. So I figured the choke was malfunctioning. Last night I loosened the 3 screws on the choke housing and rotated it until it was wide open. Figured it might be a little harder to start when cold, but would be better the rest of the time. This morning, pumped it a few times, fired right up, I feathered the throttle a little bit, then it evened out. But it was idling at 1500 rpm! So I back off the throttle linkage a bit, it drops back to 700, and I head to work. After about 30 minutes on the highway It's idling at 1000 rpm. So I know the throttle linkage isn't returning all the way. But why the hell would the choke have any effect on warm idle speed anyway? I can't wait until I swap in the TBI 350. Fuel injection and no more points!
