Holley carb problems

Got a Bronco duel fuel .
Runs fine on LPG , switch it to petrol and it runs like whore at that time of the month !

Went to the Holley site and could not find the serial numbers that matched up with the carb that is on the Bronco .
I'm tempted to turf it and put on a 2 barrel carter .
Never had much luck with Holley carbs.

Thanks aussieG !

Re: Holley carb problems

Usually Holleys on gas causing probs will be either the tin floats collapsed or needle and seats sticking and flooding engine something awful. 650 Dbl Pumper I had used to do it every time, found filling carb with fuel and leaving it sit over night was enough to fix it up. Replaced floats with plastic/bakelight ones and was good as new.

Re: Holley carb problems

I'd also think the accel pumps will be dead too. The don't like running dry. Dual fuel has it's disadvantages.
