Original Clevo Carbies
I'm getting a bit confused. My 600 holley is playing up a bit, like leaking fuel between the baseplate and body of the carb. The float levels are fine etc. We replaced the metering block, gaskets etc, still the same problem. I put a straight edge on the face of the body of the carb where the metering block attaches, and the damn thing is warped. I've also been told that 750's have a much better idle circuit on them than the 600vs. I'm kinda up in the air at the moment, cause i've been doing some research on the standard Carter carbies that come with clevo's. The main site that I looked at said that they are an awesome carb, just nobody can tune them. Aparently if you set them up correctly they're a set and forget application.
The reason i'm asking is, I have one of these Carters, as it was the original carb that came with the car. It was taken off and put away when the new motor went in, and hasn't been touched since.
I'm not sure of what model it is, but it came on a 302 clevo in an XE. I know for sure that it is the plastic type body one. Just wanna know if anyone here is running one, and if so, how does it go etc?
For now, i'm more happy to have a relyable motor, that returns better fuel economy than it is at the moment, as this holley is chewing fuel from the leak.
The other thing i forgot to mention is, when both idle screws on the holley are screwed in... the motor still runs happily :S
Let me know what you guys think.
