Hi everybody, this might turn out like a stupid issue in the end, but im stuck on it from a while. I have a 2.0 ford banger w/ 4 carbs, snowmobile/bike style mikuni VM 38s. Picture added, its from set-up day, now everything its tied up properly.kinda... Anyway, ihad many issues until i managed to make it a driver again, but then im stock. The mixture seems to be always rich, no matter whati do its alway pumpin some degree of white smoke and smells like unburnt fuel, im consuming the screws and screwdriver but w/ no avail. So i thought i could have too big mains, as previous owner had a ported head,theyre 250, so i ordered 180 and 200 mains (didnt get'em yet) but then discovered that 250 supposedly are the stock VM 38 main jets, and also that VM 28 moped carbs start from 160 till 200 mains, so if you add that up 250 dont seem too big for a 38 right? I mean if 200 its ok for a shitty moped engine on a 28 carb, a 250 in a 38 for a 2.0 litre engine should be small....or its this kind of reasonin total Bull? Anyway, symptoms:when i push the throttle down i can hear the fuel flushing in the cyl.s, literally, it makes a "fsshhhhhhh-ing" noise while accelerating but doesnt traslate to as much power, to be honest its worse that the previous single 2 barrel i had, so i know somthings wrong, and the smell of fresh gas makes me go the flooding cyl. way. Then consumption its total BS, i used to do 10 to 12 Km x liter and now im doin 3 to 6 if i go really slow, which is hard anyway, i moved the pressure regulator from 4 and 1/2 (recommended set) to 1 and 1/2, consumption got a lot better almost like b4 the carb swap but still i hear the flushing fuel and the smell of gas....and the total power loss just like b4.Im proly just saving fuel, period. Which its already a goal considering its 1.3 euros a liter Any thoughts about this? For those who might say check the head gasket and oil or water in the block/cylinders ive already checkt and block is sealed and rings are thight, so it has to be a fuelin problem, im also a little out of phase but i doubt this is the main cause and ill correct it as soon as i hook a phase gun on the block. Pls help, its my daily and only car at the moment, as my other truck might have a cracked head! tuff luck ah?
