I bought a remaned q jet from National Carburetor and the damn thing is flooding bad. :mad: I'm waiting for all the techs to get back from lunch. I've disconnected the electric choke for now and it didn't help. I think the float is stuck or there is something stick in the needle and seat. Tapping on it with a wooden hammer handle didn't help any ideas.

If I pinch the fuel line and let it run out of gas it floods as soon as I let the fuel flow again. I can't even keep it running long enough to pull back in the garage.

Yeah, and? Betcha be sending it back. Don't touch it. Make them fix it. If you mess with it they'll be voiding the warranty! If the tech's suggest removing the top and checking the float and inlet valve you say "No, I'll send it back and you check the float and inlet valve" or send me another one. You paid good money for a good part that you didn't get. If thyey don't go along with your idea, sent it back for a refund and find somewhere else to get one that will back up their work! :thumbup:

Where did he say that it ran fine when he pinched the line? I must have missed that. Fact is, it's supposed to be newly re-built! oop's! :D
If National sent it Fedex I can understand why though, I had a new 20gal. gas tank sent for my truck from Memphis only a few hrs. away and when I got it, it looked like they played "kick the can" with it. That's what you get with free shipping I guess. :mad:
