Re: Situation... flooded float bowl & rough unsustainable idle after new pump/dizzy/starter

that's basically what i'm experiencing. flushing my A/T transmission and diffs right now, separately of course since they are not connected like in a manual.

will check that next when i'm done with the flush.

Re: That European 4a-C AKA: the 4a-L (83hp vs 74)

re-noticed this interesting tidbit that's just after that 4ac part ============================================ 4A-ELU Fuel injection was added. This increased output to 58 kW (78 hp; 79 PS) at 5600 rpm and 12 kg⋅m (118 N⋅m; 87 lbf⋅ft) at 4000 rpm in export form and 75 kW (100 hp; 100 PS) at 5600 rp...

Re: Situation... flooded float bowl & rough unsustainable idle after new pump/dizzy/starter

replaced the gas cap. now the bubble doesn't go away. i'm stumped.
also took the evap canister out before that and made sure air passed through everything. it passed air at a controlled rate of probably 4-8 psi.

looks like you would have to look for the AT151 Carina II 1983–1987 (Europe only)

That European 4a-C AKA: the 4a-L (83hp vs 74)

So to my understanding from researching the 4a series on Wikipedia there was a version of the 4a-C put out in the European market called the 4a-L. not to be confused with the Indonesian 4a-L with slightly less power (though still better output than our american 4a-C) anyone ever look for one of thes...

Re: Situation... flooded float bowl & rough unsustainable idle after new pump/dizzy/starter

the whole vacuum bubble thing is me describing what i'm witnessing occurring. with a tank under vacuum, i can only theorize that the bubble created in the filter is also under vacuum. which is why it disappears when the car is turned off. the vacuum created pulls in fuel when there is no longer pull...

Re: Situation... flooded float bowl & rough unsustainable idle after new pump/dizzy/starter

blew out the lines (not a good idea while their still hooked to the tank). and deleted the assist electric pump. started fine but only ran till the bowl was empty. re-installed the electric assist pump so i could drive her around again. visually saw a vacuum bubble form in the filter that would get ...

Re: Situation... flooded float bowl & rough unsustainable idle after new pump/dizzy/starter

ok. so to fill in some trouble shooting info. before the electric pump got added for assist, i fed the mechanical pump from a cup which worked immediately and emptied the cup in about 30 seconds. i had just installed the new fuel filter (a clear wix) so was able to visually see it not filling hooked...

the ventury o-ring was out of place. still dialing it in though as i am continuing to have fuel delivery issues. on my second pump now. it appears to still be running rich causing harder flooded starts. but it is also haveing issues sucking fuel. i can physically suck it with minimal effort if i pul...

Situation... flooded float bowl & rough unsustainable idle after new pump/dizzy/starter

Re: what is this thing on top of my front diff.. i think i might of bumped it.

so grabbing a spider from the easier to access rear diff to hone a new chubby cv axles input spline would not work out.....was just an idle thought.

i got them honed using a diamond bit on a dremel, cut nice and slow.
