| : I have a late 1931 160-B Town Sedan.It has an indented firewall and late model carburetor.The fuel shutoff valve is outside on the firewall.|
: The plugs look as though they are full of soot and in some cases wet with fuel.Ok I know it is running rich.I removed the carburetor disassembled it and soked all parts in a solvent.Then replaced all jets and secondary well with new parts.New gaskets installed and still running terrible.Seems to be starving for fuel when I go uphill and runs rough on an idle.Checked and replaced coil and modern point set.Cheked all gap clearance'sChecked timing.I even plugged up vacumm thinking I was being robbed of air at this point.
: Nothing seems to work.Borrowed a Tilliston carb from a friend and car runs almost perfect.Maybe this carb could use some minor adjustment but runs better then mine by leaps and bounds.
: Motor was recently re-built and I assume compression is OK but will check it out tomarow.
