No Idle

When car is warmed up it idles around 7. When I take off and come to a stop the idle goes to 0 and I stall out.
The carb is a Holley DP and is 1 year old.
When I have the filter off and the car is idling one of the rear jets is dripping gas down into the carb. When I rev it the front jets spray good and the backs do ok.
It is a 350 engine with a Muncie 4 speed.

This problem started the other day when I adjusted the idle screw down a bit.

Re: No Idle

Check your float heights...
With the level screws removed, there should be no fuel come out...when y bump or shake the car, u should see a small spill over.

Check no crap in the valves.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

Re: No Idle

Thanks that was the problem.
When I opened up the back site plug the gas poured out.
This carb is only 3 years old and is a Holley 4777S and all of the nuts and screws were loose. Had to go over everything real close.
