MC2100 Loading up.

Yesterday, on the way home from work my junk was stalling at the red lights.

I'd pull up, & after a few seconds it would start bogging & shut off.

I'd have to floor it to get it to restart. Then it would it would smooth out a little & I could continue.

Upon arrival at my house, I took the air filter off, to find fuel percolating from the bowl into the venturi's. Not just a little either.

I took the bowl cover off the MC2100, & pulled the float & inlet valve needle.
After cleaning the needle's kryton tip, I put it back together & it ran fine.
Going to work this morning it ran fine until the last light, & bogged a little.

I kept the throttle partly open to get it into the lot. After work, I limped it home & yanked the carb, & called Advance for a rebuild kit.

So I disassembled it & threw it in the dunk tank.

I'll put it back together tomorrow night, with a new fuel filter. I was surprised to find how well I knew it, after only being in there once, about 1-1/2 years ago.

It really is a simple design, & that is one of the reasons I got it, in the first place! If I had to do this on the side of the road, or trail I wouldn't even be concerned as long as I had access to a rebuild kit.

My carb is off a 1974 F-250 302-2V= kit # 96-215 (GP Sorensen) about $16.00 I'ma get a spare to keep on hand & for wheeling trips.

I did snap some pics as I got it apart, (for reference) but I haven't uploaded them to photobucket yet.

Here is some shots of what it looked like a few weeks ago.

That should hold you for a while!

Here is a rundown from today's "Fun-N-Games"!

Today, I got home from work, took out the carb parts from the dunk tank & cleaned them the rest of the way. Put it back together, & it runs extra sweet!

Then I drove around to advance & asked them for a tension pulley for a 1981 Cherokee.
No gots, cant get either! Hmm, what to do?

Checked other years, still outa luck must be a dealer only deal.

How about one for a 1990 YJ???

Yeah, I has one in stock!

It was a 3" pulley with a larger bearing I.D.

I thought I heard something else in the box, when he was taking it out & thought it might be a shaft bushing.

It was, & I now have a 3" pulley that replaced a 2" pulley.

This is the one near the alt, that runs on the back of the belt. It's flat, not a "V" groove.

Same size belt works fine, in case anyone else runs into this snag.

& the carb is working better, than the first time I rebuilt it.
