Re: Marvel Carburetor Disection

I have found this idle jet is threaded into the lower body with a 10-32 thread. It is a thick walled tube so you can get a firm hold on it and it will come out. Don't know how they set the height...

Re: Who's running a Marvel/Schebler carb?

The only problem I have with mine it it stops when it doesn't get gas, fuel filter blocked it. I run an air filter on mine with a balanced system.

Re: Timing light

I have no issues with my 12v timing light. It still fires when number one fires. Just make sure you hook up the battery (power leads) correctly on the standard 6v system. No issues on mine.

Re: Something wrong

They may be moving but are they closing? Compression test to see. If not that, then it is a blown gasket.
