179 cam help
hi all have a cam prob , a guy gave me a cam for my standard 179hp ,it has twin strommies and extractors and electronic igt. have fitted the cam . there were no numbers on the cam but i found out that the cam was in a speedway car thats all i know.
( big breath )
now no matter what i do i cannot stop the carbs from flooding , engine was fine before , have changed jets put new kits in them , and when engine was running today i had the tops off the carbs , float levels were set fine , but bowls were nearly overflowing (and yes i had the holes taped up ) and fuel is pouring from bottoms of carbs. now with big cams is the lobe that drives the fuel pump bigger causing more fuel delivery to carbs , it seems like to much fuel pressure, have standard glass bowl pump, i used one of these fuel restictors speco tyoe u dial settings , still no good , should i just remove cam and throw it and replace with standard cam ( bugger i gave away the standard one doh )
any cheap red motor cams out there that would suit a stock 179
