dieseling with a weber

the bolts holding the lowest adapter to the intake were loose. i was messing around today and grabbed the carb for some od reason and it moved around. i was like "what the hell!!". had to take the whole thing apart to tihten those bolts and since i was in there, i replaced gaskets and used a very thin layer of rtv to create the final seal. after all was said and done, the jeep no longer diesels.

now i have to readjust everything. it idles at 900 in neutral and 500 in gear.


while i had it off, i looked in the bottom of the intake and its got some weird shizznit down in there. check it out




now, i can think of two reason for those being there, they are both probably wrong but i'll tell ya'll anyway.

1) they are there to cause some strange turbulence to mix fuel in some odd situation that i have never come across in any other vehicle.

2) they are there to catch crap i drop in the intake so it doesn't roll down the intake runner.

i have no idea why but i am going with option two because i am a huge fan of dropping crap in the carb while screwing around just to make my day less fun. i do it fairly regulalry so i can improve my engine disassembly times.

nevermind, its back to dieseling today. this dang dieseling issue bugs the crap out of me. i replaced all the vacuum lines, tightened down the carb, rechecked for leaks, nothing. but its dieseling every time i turn it off. sounds like an old vw bug with the anti diesel valve unhooked on a hot day
