  1. Ok I finally got to this... sorry life gets in...

    Ok I finally got to this... sorry life gets in the way of my jeep sometimes, dammit.
    Replacing the needle and seat with the "springy" one seems to have solved the issue.
    This seems quite trivial...

    Luckily mine was "found again" while trying to take the head off a few months back when I did the valve job. I wasn't prying too hard when suddenly I remembered that damn hidden bolt!

    I had one of those missing head bolts. It seems that I forget about it oh every 30 years or so!
  4. Ok I took the top off, double checked float level...

    Ok I took the top off, double checked float level and float drop. I made some minor adjustments for both. Put it back together and it's still leaking. I don't know if I said this - but it doesn't...

    Update: I'm 99.99999 percent sure it's leaking from the base where the accelerator pump arm is. It's wet under there after I drive and it's just channeling to the base.
    I'll take it apart Saturday....

    Base gasket is new and clean. The weird thing is that there's no "liquid" fuel there to run out, right? Rhetorical question there.
    I wonder if the gas can travel in such a narrow channel that it...

    Well I'm going nuts. Rebuild went fine. There were no issues. Easier than last time.
    It's running great - and still leaking from the bottom but not quite as much. It seems and looks to be coming...

    Well I think I found the problem, or at least a contributing issue... when taking my old carburetor apart, if I held the top with the float on the bottom, I carefully moved the float upward. When...

    I ended up ordering a rebuild kit from Mikes. I was already impressed when I got a nearly immediate response from him, asking me questions on my carb and stating that there "is no run-of-the-mill"...

    Thanks for moving my post. I'm using either Firefox, or Safari.
    More to come...
  11. Carter YF carb issues, possible a "fuelish" mistake.

    Mark here. Tried posting this in "Tech Questions" area but it logs me out each time. I reported it to an admin. I've been having issues logging in for a week now.

    I purchased a Chinese "Solex...

    With Pampers on my engine, it gives a whole new meaning to "changing the oil."

    I have a smaller size drip pan. Since the engine leak is centralized, I may bring bring that pan along. it will fit neatly under my original upholstery rear bench seat too.

    Do they make pampers in Jeep size? :D
    I wish I could just rig up something temporarily. I actually recognized the "puddle signature" in the parking lot where I meet for cycling. It was still there...

    I've learned a lot on my jeep issues and ... on completely different things as well!
    Just spend the last 15 minutes Google-searching/reading on Brownie boxes and 8V71 Diesel engines - made from...

    I've got a CJ3B with the F134. It seems to get rolling best using 1,2, over, then I do the "useless" 3 under just to get it ready for 3 over if it looks like I'll be rolling a while.
    Roger that?...
  17. WARN ing - An overdrive-related silly question...

    It's me, Mark (of the Daily Puddle).
    Now that I'm driving my 3B much more regularly, I've noticed something I never noticed when I drove this as a 16 year old child.
    Normally my "in traffic"...

    Thanks for all the input... and good information on "future leaks" for me. Well I hope not!

    I think for starters I'll just replace the oil pan. Last October I did up the bolts. Some were...

    PAIN IN THE REAR... main seal, that is!

    So it's me again - Mark, novice jeep mechanic.
    Jeep is running as you all know. As I drive I've noticed, of course, all the "new" sounds. So far they are manageable.
    Back in 1995, when I parked...

    NICE!!! I really wanted to fire a bullet in this crappy paint can, bought at ACE hardware. Luckily the second can worked and I avoided painting myself!

    My F134 is definitely the quietest it's ever been, well other than when it didn't run for 25 years.
