hey all,
I have a quickfuel 1050 4150 gas carb it has been on the car most of the summer and it has slowly lost its ability to idle,if I do get it to idle after about 30 sec. it just drops off and dies if I dont catch it and I cant get the idle below 13-1400 rpm without it quitting....any ideas? Also it is hard to start lately...but out on the road it runs fine.

I switched to my 950 hp alcohol carb and as soon as I hit the key it fired right up and I could idle it down to about 950 rpm with no trouble so I believe it is all carb related.

IT could be alot of things !!!! I WOULD SIMPLY pull the carb tear it down ,spray it thouroughly with carb cleaner and reassemble it . If everything looks ok when you rebuild it i bet the problem goes away . It could be a fuel pressure problem , but you say the other carb works , SO MAYBE NOT ! i would think maybe you have some clogged air bleeds ?or possibly the float needles are stuck and not shutting off completely .

As Jason said just break it down and give it a bath & fresh gaskets

Sounds like the transition slot in the base is getting clogged

As stated you most likely need to just clean it out and freshen it up. If the problem is getting worse, you most likely have some dirt or debris caught up in the carb, which a simple bath and some fresh gaskets and components should bring back to life.
