The importance of float level to carburetor performance.
My question is not primarily about farm iron, however I.H.C trucks and engines were used on many farms. My question is this, 1974 IH 345 V8 engine, which has an Edelbrock 1406 – it will not run with choke full open, but if choke is 1/4 closed or if you put your hand over it, but not on it, it runs smooth, and has 20in vac. The carb was rebuilt but wouldn’t run at all. I pulled the carb and checked the floats, which were way off. I set them and put it back on. It ran better, but as stated above. I have checked fuel pressure, at 5# checked for vac leaks and sucking air, have no vac hooked up except vac gauge. HELP!!!!. Any thoughts would be helpful.
Thanks in advance. Mike H
