Ok thx for input.It isn’t clear why you would think that the carb was “flooding” the engine. The symptoms are consistent with a lean condition and the circumstances, like a wide open throttle with no choke applied are inconsistent with flooding.
Thx. Planning on driving for a tank of gas and then pulling plugs. Unable to measure mpg as speedo is having conniptions ( squealing like stuck pig) and is on the bench for a good talking to!Without an O2 sensor, and probably a heated one with headers, you could measure your MPG, and post up pics of the spark plugs. Hiccup is lean, exhaust pop is unburnt fuel.
Q? is that consistent with a lean fuel condition?
Open for other suggestions pls, as I don’t think my problem is completely solved.
