For simplicity, I will respond in all caps. It's not yelling.
[QUOTE=rumb;11389962]Correct way to start car is depress pedal slightly to set chokes/fast idle.
I AM STILL STARTING WITH REMOTE STARTER. NEVER QUITE FIGURES THAT HALF PEDAL THING OUT YET.
then turn key until starts. no pumping of pedal.
IT SEEMS THAT THE CAR STARTS MUCH EASIER WITH A SQUIRT.
Hot starts hold pedal to floor, do not pump at all and crank till starts.
MY SEDAN SEEMED TO START WITH A TWIST OF THE KEY ONCE WARM. IM CLUELESS
is your idle adjust screws set to 2.5 turns initially?
I AM ASSUMING YOU MEAN THE IDLE MIXTURE NEEDLE SCREW IN BASEPLATE. RIGHT? THATS ABOUT WHERE IVE HAD IT BUT I MESSED WITH THEM LIKE NUTS TOO,
when cold are both choke plates closed or mostly closed?
did you see the test on cold engine just turn key on and in 2 minutes the chokes should open up.
I DID SEE THAT. I DIDNT DO THAT SPECIFIC TEST, BUT THEY OPEN, TOO FAST FOR MY CAR'S CURRENT STAKE IT SEEMS.
I know you are just trying to get it to run. can you get it to a point where it will warm up and idle?
I THOUGHT I HAD IT THERE, BUT MESSED WITH IT AGAIN WHEN I COULDNT DRIVE IT BACK INTO THE DRIVEWAY. SCREWED IT ALL UP.
adjust choke just enough so you can get engine running and idling.
NEXT TIME ITS WARM I THINK I NEED TO LOOK FOR OBVIOUS VACUUM LEAKS AND SET EVERYTHING I CAN TO SPEC.
Then do you balancing and idle speed settings with the little turnbuckles.
ON THE TURNBUCKLES, THE FRONT ISNT TWISTING AS EASILY AS THE BACK. I WIDH I KNEW HOW TO SET A FACTORY SPEC ON THAT.
