Picture this - start up, get out of car to adjust idle speed screw so that you can adjust float level in 850 holley carb (on 85 camaro) - nahhhh! not so easy engine dies ;
turn idle screw up and start again - idling fine but high start to open sight hole - dies;
adjust float by seat of pants - then start fuel flies all over - turn it down, idles good but float level probably too low - dies again!!!
back and forth - back and forth - and you get the picture - I almost thought it was laughing at me!!
Any tips for a one man team on how to get engine started and idling after carb overhaul - so that you can set and tune the damn thing??
I actually gave up for today!
Any help out there - tips - besides the obvious "duhhh, get a friend!!!!" would be appreciated
Thanks in advance
