I am still not convinced that the accelerator pump is working properly even though I have had it all apart and everything looks fine. This carb's pump doesn't squirt fuel into the intake like every other carb I have ever seen. When you move the linkage on every other carb I know of while looking down into the carb you can see a very distinct SQUIRT of fuel going into the center of the bore. This one the fuel "oozes" out of that little tube you see in the center of the Venturi. That little tube coming up at an angle? It just "oozes" out of it. So I'm not sure that it is working properly. But I have blown out all the passages, I have inspected it to minds end, I see nothing wrong. But then again, I know nothing. I am just looking at it with the common sense God gave me (how much is anyones guess) and looking at the assembly manual (damn these things are nice to have!) with very good drawings and explanations of the the different circuits it all seems proper without actually seeing another carb and how it's accelerator pump would function.
