The other day I posted a thread about leaking Holley 4160 carb. I later realized that all the gaskets probably should be replaced. Never doing a rebuild I was hesitant,but said,"go for it". Anyways after some research, I bought the rebuild kit and rebuilt it (I think), last night,and finished today. It took like forever, because I did each step slow and carefully, following steps that I printed out from the internet. First I dont know why there are so many kits from Holley, when it seems they have all the parts for every carb in each kit! I hate to have so many things left over, not sure if anything was missed. But Im sure used all that was meant to be used.(except for 1 small gasket that was missing. I reused the old one) Anyways, I got the carb on and sat there thinking I dont want to try to start this up and realize too late (while fighting a fire),that I did something wrong. Well after a short cranking time the car started and ran for like 5 seconds and stalled. I cranked it some more to no avail, and then took a look at the carb and was glad it didnt start! There was fuel sitting on the intake, and It appears it all came from the top of the carb ,since it too was soaked with fuel! Obvioulsy I am pissed and stumbling to figure it out. I did a search and am thinking it may be a float problem??? One thing Im not quite sure is how to adjust the side mounted floats, since it seems the directions to adjust the floats are for the center mounted ones. They say to level the float. What I did was the dry adj, to where I put the top edge of the float, farthest from the pivot ,equal to the bottom edge of the sight hole.(it was turned upside down making this adjustment) Im hoping I did this wrong and it is the problem I cant do the sight adjustment obviously, since the car isnt running. The floats are not new and were in good working order prior to the rebuild, so its not the floats themselves. They were moving freely when I reassembled them, so they arent stuck. Any ideas to why the whole carb got soaked? Should I maybe disconnect the coil wire and have someone crank it to see where the flood is originating from? A cold one goes out to the problem solver Thanks !!
