Carb issues

Postby Air Rex » Wed Nov 23, 2016 12:25 am

Does anyone have advise for getting a 300,000 mile stock carb to behave. Seems to be not happy between barrels, or something in the mid range. It also isn't wild about idling.

If your carb is stock and has never been rebuilt, I highly recommend taking it to a shop to be done.

Every city on the map has a carburetor shop, you just have to find it. Unbolt your carb from the intake manifold and take it to your guys to be hot-tanked. Rebuild kits are cheap and you can get them either online or your local autoparts store. If you're insecure about doing it yourself, you could probly pay the shop to do the rebuild for you. Get some purple Loctite so your adjustment screws can stay in place from engine vibration and such.

After that, get a tune-up from a mechanic that knows what a carburetor is.
I got a new shell, just need to stop driving the DX so I can work on it.

I've got a filter for my mouth, it just isn't a good one.

Thanks. I might rebuild it myself. Also I've seen reference to Weber carb replacement. Do you know of these?

I would only buy a new carb as a final resort. They get way expensive.

Honda didn't stick with a single type of carb for the cars, so I can't really tell you much without getting something wrong. I believe there is no aftermarket replacement for the 3 barrel, but I remember seeing replacements for dual carb setups. It can be hit-or-miss. Jlicrx gave a good link for a 2 barrel carb.
