I have a single carby, twin barrel (primary and secondary system). It was acting up a little, in the sense that whenever I gave it some stick for the next 30 mins or so it would idle really high. So I got some carby cleaner in there, and now it won't idle at all.
Looked through the workshop manual, went through the troubleshooter, and have since replaced fuel lines, fuel filter, plugs, distributor rotor and cap. I need to replace my points, they are pretty bad. Neighbour looked at it and recons the carby is stuffed too, something is stuck in it (you can hear it choking).
Now, my secondary system doesn't appear to be working at all. It's grotty inside, and even when revving hard it doesn't open. I'm guessing it's stuffed. What makes it open? Could there be a cable or something that has come undone?
And how can I clean the primary system so that the car will idle again? I've used a lot a lot of carby cleaner but to no avail.
How much are these old things anyway? $50 from the wreckers?
