Sounds like ya had the line to the carb off, if it is a Rochester carb it may have the filter in the carb.

I would take a plires or something small and beat on the carb by the gas inlet as that may pop a stuck float loose, usually works for me anyhow.

Snap a pic of the carb and post it up here tommarow and I'll see if I can't point ya in the right direction.
A Carter bbd? I believe it was.we kinda half took it apart in the field to see if anything was wrong.

I know we had issues with our Ford trucks that once one thing goes with the carb more issues appear. So I figure when seeding is done, I'll put a kit in and hope it helps.

Another note: now it's acting fine once we got it home, go figure.

Probably won't give problems again, usually only happens when they don't get used much.

That only seems to work with the 6.2 diesel....

anyways it doesn't have a carter, it has a holly.(explains the mileage issues)

well if it keeps giving problems, screw the kit, I'll just buy a different one. I put a kit in a holly twice and I'm not going to do it again.

on a different topic, what do the people of the metric system call mileage? I mean is it something like METERage or is it still MILEage?(actual question)

Liters per 100 Kilometers. It was designed by Trudeau Sr's flunkeys to make conversion difficult. Actually it's easy if you remember your old Chevy engines and have a calculator handy. To convert Imperial miles per gallon to metric Liters per 100 kilomters, divide 283 (the old V8) by mpg. To go the other way, divide 283 by L per 100 Km. To convert American gallons, remember the old 235 six. The factors aren't dead on, but close enough and easy to remember.

No, Canada simply adopted the (almost) world wide standard of expressing fuel consumption as a less is better expression and those that use metric properly it requires no conversion.

Yep, sign says 700 Km to your destination, your vehicle gets 10l per 100 km, it will take you 70l to get there, you drive to gas station if fuel was $1 a liter ( i know dreaming) it will take $70 dollars to get there. Real easy for charging shipping, and vehicle operating costs.
But i still have to admit, i need to convert to miles to gallon to really mean anything to me.

60 mph is a mile a minute. Or 89 feet per second. 100 kph is 1.??????????? kilometres per minute. Real simple.
