I have cleaned my fuel distributor/airflow plate assembly. Upon reinstalling into the car I noticed a problem which may also explain why the car runs terrible...
With no pressure in the system the airflow plate is aligned and resting perfectly. But as soon as a I turn the key ON and the pumps pressurize the system, I notice the airflow plate is being pushed down. I am assuming the fuel pressure on the plunger is causing the plate to be pushed down further than it should be. Is this normal?
Could it have something to do with my mixture screw being way out of wack?
So should I pressurize the system and THEN adjust the plate to where it needs to be by adjusting the clip, or what?
(Thinking out loud now) I am almost suspecting the mixture screw being way off is causing this. If that is the case my theory is to pressurize the system, and then adjust the screw and see if the plate will sit where it should be.
