I just picked this carb up, used from another vortex member and rebuilt it ( 38 dgas ). I set the mixture screw 1 1/2 turns out. The idle speed screw is set to factory settings. Cranked it a couple of times to get gas to the carb. It fired up strong and sounded like a big tractor. I then started to adjust the mixture screws in till the carb died. After that, nothing went smooth.
I tried to back out the idle mixture screw a little and restart the car but it was having a rough time. I noticed some whitish smoke forming around the exhaust and coming out of the top of the carb. I tried starting it again and it was shooting out gas and was forming more whitish smoke. I tried to start but It kept failing.
Thought the timing may be off so I followed the timing instructions off cabby info. Tried starting it again but had the same symptoms, white smoke, gas shooting out the top of carb ( currently no filter on carb). FPR is running 4psi. Everything is stock on the car (85 cabriolet)
You guys have any thoughts?
