I just purchased an 1986 mighty max with a 2.0 l engine. The guy told me he ran it out of oil, but it was kind of a weird situation. He said "it might could be fixed". The father said "i got it to start ... he just doesn't want to bother with it". I bought it for the body, which is nice and rust free. Now i'm thinking about trying to get this engine running.
that didn't seem that bad.
wires, distributor cap and rotor looked like originals. Wires were scorched all over the place.
It has an EMPI 32/36 carb on it. The carb is dripping fuel into the primary at idle. Needless to say it's running rough.
The vacuum is varying wildly between 10 and 15 and it drops if i rev it. I've capped and replaced all of the vacuum lines i could see to try to stabilize it to diagnose the status of the engine.
I don't want to buy a carburetor and then have the engine need a rebuild.
If the carb is dumping fuel like this is there a way to adjust it? Is it the float?
what causes this other than it being a POS Chinese copy of a weber?
any advice would be appreciated i'm kind of at a loss right now ..
