So I put the stock carburetor on my 1968 Chrysler Newport (383). It got it on there with nearly no problem, except two.
First problem is that it will back fire every now and then. Second problem is that it needs to be tuned. I can't even keep it idling without the engine stalling. I have no idea how to tune this carburetor. (I am pretty dumb with these, as I have never tuned one. I'd imagine it'd be best to ask before I start turning screws
The carburetor is a "United Carb" part 5-599 (rebuilt 2-bbl Carter BBD). Here's the link to the carburetor.
Would anyone know how to remedy this issue? I have to keep my foot on the
accelerator to even keep it going. It just flat out will not idle, and it backfires sometimes when it starts.
EDIT: I double checked my work. I forgot to hook up a linkage to the carburetor. I fixed that, and it ran amazing for a minute or so. Maybe it was running a few hundred RPMs quicker than it should, but it sounded pretty nice. No chugging, nothing. I turned it off, then started it later with the air filter on... and now it stalls. I double checked the linkages again, and everything is fine. It runs at an extremely low RPM... practically to the point of which it stalls (it has a few times). Any ideas? :|
