My newly re-built 64 FHC 3.8 with 3 rebuilt SU’s won’t run under 2000 RPM. Ihave Ray’s electronic ignition system and it starts quickly with the choke on but once warm and I reduce the choke the engine dies. Choke lever is set properly with first third or so just increasing idle before engaging the choke with the rest of the travel.
I’ve set the whole thing up per all the manuals and online tips, funny ho so many start, “set idle to 600”, but never HOW. Car runs and drives great but just wont idle. I can’t seem to find anything on setting the “Slow volume running screw”, Sounds like it’s the one I want but I’m not even sure which it is and I don’t want to twiddle anything I don’t understand. See my pics Below, is it C or D? What are C and D?
A is idle? Opens the butterfly anyway. B is the Choke on idle speed. There is room to close the butterfly but the car dies when I turn it down.
What am I doing wrong?
