Post Q-Jet help

I recently rebuilt my carb. Now the mechanical choke slams the choke plate closed and floods out the carb. I am also having a challenge tuning with the mixture screws. Any suggestions. Thanks guys

Don't know what you mean by mechanical choke. Tell me what kind of choke you have and I may be able to help. Right now, I suspect the linkage that comes up just inside the carb and attaches to the choke butterfly is disconnected.

If there is an electric attached to it or it was converted from an electric There are marks on the housing for the alignment of the choke spring. If it's fully mechanical from stock then a rod is bent , disconnected, or there's a little piece down on the bottom plate on some q-jet models that will stick and will also slam it shut when you put pressure on the throttle. Definitely find out the exact model and check for all the little rods and where they are connected. They love to fall off during reassembly when you aren't looking.
