Hi all. I am hoping that you all can give me so ideas on how to fix a couple of issues with my carburetor. What I have is a 1949 Ford PU on a 1975 Mercury car frame (lets not get into the details of better frame swaps, it was free). I put a 390 FE with a C6 in it. It has a Edlebrock 1405 4 barrel carb which I rebuilt and uses a mechanical fuel pump. It has a Russell online fuel filter and aluminum 3/8"s line along the frame with a barbed adapter to connect each end with rubber fuel line at the tank and from the front of the frame to the fuel pump. I used a 1988 Jeep Cherokee gas tank and ran the fuel pick-up from the pick-up line of the in-tank fuel sender. It doesn't have the original electric pump in the tank, the return line is capped off. I have two problems: 1. After sitting for more than a few hours, It drains the fuel back out of the carb and I have to prime the carb every time to get it to start. If I don't prime the carb, it'll crank until the battery goes dead. However, just a little fuel poured down the carb (like 1-2 shot glasses worth) is all it takes and it'll start right up and keep running as if the fuel was always in the lines. It doesn't really cough and sputter (as if trying to shuck up the fuel from the line all the way from the tank) after priming it, just starts right up. Any suggestions? 2. The fast idle cam and choke doesn't work properly. I have to manually pull the fast idle cam and lever up to get it to idle until it warms up. Once it warms up (even on a hot day), I have to open the hood and release the fast idle cam or it'll idle way too high. Is there something that is supposed to automatically set this to the correct position so I do t have to do it by hand? It has an electric choke and it's getting 13.56 volts to the choke.
