floats really arn't that expensive but if you don't no anything about carbs it's kinda hard to change and not fuck anything up but a new or refurbished carb is kinda high you would prolly be better off takin it to a shop to get it replaced

If you got the cash just buy a new carter afb or edelbrock carb and it should solve your problem. If you dont got the cash but are mechanically inclined King of Rims is right, it sounds like a bad float or your carb just needs a rebuild.

sounds like the accelarator pump to me. there is a small pump in the carb that gives an extra squirt of gas when you quickly accelerate. check all the linkage on the carb to make sure nothing fell off. it happens easily with the afb/edelbrock style carbs. if ieverything is cool, i would bet its the piston or diaphram on the pump.

so, pretty much it would be better in the long run just to buy a new one, than it wont be i think its this that wrong or that thats wrong, but if i buy a new carb, itll run like it should, right.... n n e one know where they sell cheap ones at, cuz around here they run around 100 i think, dunno if they run cheaper somewhere else..

i know what you mean... same story around where im at..

but just call and ask if they have any old chevys or something..... just to get in there, and so they know you're looking for "something.."

sometimes thats what i do... ill just ask for something somewhat common, when i find what i need, ill just run up to the office and ask how much if i take it off myself..... (theres a few junkyards up here that dont letyou take your own stuff off the car) 1- so they can charge you more, and 2- so people dont steal shit, or fuck up other shit in the car.....
