Thinking of putting in new accelerator pump, or just swapping back to the original carb that was on this Peugeot manifold even though that carb had stripped jet threads.
    I went from having the worlds fastest naturally aspirated prv delorean to the most stumbly off the line one.
    Since our falling out, Bill sweared he would never help me again. I'm trying to research the site to find info.
    Well, thats pretty shitty! Hows it coming along?

    I'm confused. Did the carb conversion have something to do with the car overheating?

    Check that your timing is not too low. If that's not the problem, swapping the carbs is exactly what to do (possibly eliminates the current carb or proves it is the problem)....

    Rob, timing was never changed just swapped carbs and it falls in its face. I have to try the original carb again someday soon. I THINK the only difference between the two is the full throttle enrichment valve is plugged in the newer one.

    When it's a carb issue and it even stumps Bill Robertson himself, who knows how to remedy it.

    Maybe I'll just use the older carb (even with its stripped jet threads)

    Silly boy! Even I know that can't be related. The OP didn't burp the radiator from what I gathered.

    What kind of fuel filter are your running and how often do you change them?

    Hmm I do have the same fuel filter that I got in Bills carb conversion kit years back. But how could that cause a change in the 15 minutes it takes to swap a carb?

    It would probably be fine on the low end, and act up under heavy load and surly at high RPM as long as you held it open (bronc/surge over and over)if it was the filter...

    And mines the exact opposite of that...

    Maybe use some fuel rated epoxy on the jet threads,and swap the carbs for a test....?
