  • carb rebuild

    After having rebuilt my carb, my bird ran the best since I owned
    it. No stalling ,hesitation for about the first 100 miles. Now
    every once in awhile the car will shudder and shake. If I pull over
    and put it in park the engine smooths out and then will run great
    again. Problem is intermittent, so it's very disturbing. Any
    ideas on this?

    You do not state if this happens at idle, constant speed or acceleration.

    You may need to adjust the float levels.

      It only happens at constant speed driving 30-40 mph . It idles fine.

        Possibilities:

        Float level in primaries too low.

        Clogged fuel filter.

        Fuel pump is failing.
