After cold start idle stays high too long. Sometimes choke sticks closed after a short run and is difficult to start. Car diesels when turned off after a short run.
It looks like the tension on the high speed idle cam is too tight, preventing the cam to rotate back to position in a timely fashion. This, in turn, prevents the choke from returning to the open position.
I have found, with my fingers, a small hex with what feels like a spring on the right side (passenger's side) of the carburetor just under the cam assembly which seems to be the tension adjustment I am looking for. However, I see no way to get any tool, even with a universal joint fitting, in place to make the adjustment.
Please give me, if you can, a procedure for clearing the area enough to make this adjustment. My Haynes manual seems to be useless in that regard and I do not want to start taking things apart that I do not have to.
Thank you, 88
have the same problem?
