Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

Page numbers for testing procedures would be splendid.

You can't use the section menu functions on a phone.

Between the 800 ish pages, lack of page numbers in the section listing and loading time. It's taken me days before finding a section.

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

If I remember correctly the actuator going to the egr failed during warm test phase. Reports when I get to testing. Put a half tank of regular gas in it to see what happened. It's searching/hunting further than before now. Not sure why those would be related though. The sounds of gas delivery within...

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

It's already smoking a lot when I start her up. Sooty grayish white. Took the carb back off replaced that last hose I couldn't reach for the jet. Took the egr and it's pipe off and cleaned em out a bit. They still had good flow. And valve seemed to work(I think, still felt sloppy like but held hose ...

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

NWMO - I hadn't read that actually. Though had read about the carbon part on another post Irowiki - they don't seem that complicated to me(descendant from a line of engineers), but rather fascinating actually. Though I don't know exactly everything about them yet. The only parts that seem to wear ou...

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

Still looking to hear some stuff about the egr & it's actuator valve. As well as what that brake booster valve is and where. About to go over the carb with a fine tooth comb and a rebuild kit on hand. Hoping I don't need the kit since I've already rebuilt it and still have all the extras from the la...

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

Wish I had the money for a new carb. Thing seems to be in pretty good condition though. Aap works, just a dab a oil (think it was a thinner oil). Anyone near Santa Cruz with One I could try? If I drive it very far at this point it diesels hard.. thought I threw a rod first time it did it. Was only d...

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

I know you've all written these answers countless times, so I appreciate the patience here. Dizzy is the newest thing in the car aside from the spark plugs. I've inspected it thoroughly out of the car. Painstakingly aligned it's #1 to tdc with room on the advance side to get just a little above 10 d...

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

Yes & yes. Forgot to include that I'd set it to 10°btdc without advance. 18 with advance. Replaced all vac lines with the smaller of the 2 available sizes that aren't exactly an 8th of an inch id and the ebcv lines with fuel line that was an 8th id. Since the dieseling has been getting worse I retar...

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

Also living out of the thing as I travel around, so my ability to garage her till its figured out is non existent. I will be diving it daily while running around and pouring through posts like a chicken with its head cut off trying to figure this out with limited ability to find spots to park it lon...

Re: Dieseling + backfiring + rough/searching idle

Forgot that a new rust severing occurred about an inch after the last one I sloppily welded back together .. no welder so I sleeved it with some jb exhaust cement. That was before AZ. Seems the jb cement isn't holding as its leaking around the sleeve.

Manufacturer location is not listed.
Delphi sounds pretty snazzy though
