« on: July 08, 2018, 01:15:18 PM »
I bought a new carb installed it run pretty good drive around for about 20 min , then it started to act like it was running out of gas . seemed like it was running out of gas , was looking in the carb and could not see any gas going in removed gas line turned it over was getting gas to the carb
 got back in the drive way let it sit  a half hour and it started up and would idle fine

new problem put everything back to gather starts and runs great does what it is suppost to do one problem it leaks between the adaptor plate and the carb . I had heard the mr gaskets had a problem leaking any ideas . I have new gaskets red silicone make a gasket . could the float be to high were the needle is don't setting right . or to much fuel pressure  , it is a stock pump with new 3/8 line . the only way to turn the float down is to bend the tab on the float is this right 2100 holly 2 barrel

heeeeeeeeeeelp

DON'T use silicone for fuel leaks. Gasoline breaks it down and creates problems. If fuel is leaking out around the base gasket, you most likely have a fuel level or pressure problem.  There are sealants that work with gasoline, but they shouldn't be used or even needed on carburetor gaskets.

I don't like to use ANY type of sealer on carburetor gaskets.  It ALWAYS causes problems later.  Make sure ALL of your mating surfaces are SPOTLESSLY clean and always use new gaskets.  When we raced and were changing jets and the like on our race carbs, we kept spares of all our gaskets on the trailer.  There were "special" gaskets made strictly for jet changes, but we even kept spares of those, just in case!!
