I have a flooding problem with the 302 Ford engine in my 48 Ford. After running well for about 400 miles after installation, the engine started to miss soon after startup and get progressively worse until it finally stalls. This happened both at idle and under load. Turning off the fuel pump when the miss started, caused the engine to clear and run smoothly until it began to run out of fuel. Restarting the fuel pump would bring the motor back to smooth operation for about 5-10 seconds and then the miss would resume. Turning off the fuel pump again repeats the process. The first time this happened, I disassembled the carburetor (Edelbrock 1405) and reset the float levels (height and drop), checked the floats for holes and needle valves and bowls for dirt and could find nothing wrong. Reinstalling the carburetor showed no improvement. Having a bit of a short fuse and wanting an electric choke anyway, I bought a new 1406 Edelbrock and installed it. Everything seemed OK, so the next day I drove to a show (about 50 miles) with no problems. When I tried to start the engine after the show, it was flooded. When I got it cleared and running, the miss was back. I drove it home turning the fuel pump off when it stumbled (after about 6 seconds of pumping) and back on when it began to run out of fuel (about 30 seconds of cruising speed). The fuel pump is an adjustable JEGS unit set to 5.5 pounds. It is installed just forward of and below the tank. Thinking its internal regulator might have failed, I added a regulator between the pump and the carburetor and set it at 5 lbs. I also installed a new filter just before the regulator. The tank was installed new when the engine was put in and there is a second filter between the tank and the pump. Im stumped. Anyone got any ideas?
