I adjusted the idle and the float level seems to be good. I replaced many vacuum hoses that were cracked/split. This seems to help. However, when I put my hand over the choke plate the engine doesnt want to die out, rather it runs higher! Does this indicate still a vacuum leak? The engine isnt looping so I believe the intake manifold is good. Is there somewhere else. I have thoroughly checked and tightened vacuum hoses so.
Another thing, could it be im in vapor lock? Is it worth replacing the fuel vapor canister?
Other than this im stumped. As of now, it idle good but after getting hot, I try to drive around the block and within 5-10 min it stalls out like its being starved for fuel. Feels exactly like I ran out of fuel. I did check fuel pressure and im pumping out 5-6 psi right into the carb.
The two things I am thinking is that its a inside carb adjustment problem or vapor lock.
The step by step guide is difficult to understand when it talks about how to check the fuel vapor canister. Can I disconnect the line from carb to fuel vapor canister to eliminate vapor lock ( to test)?
