Next logical step is to adjust the metering rod mixture. It gets the problem if it sits awhile after running then I try to start it. It really is a set-it-forget it deal. I just put a new on my car.

The throttle linkage is located on the driver’s side of the carburetor. The old built in ’96 was seeing signs of age, plus when I took it apart the floats were all outta wack.
