Latest post of the previous page:I am back fresh from the driveway to report that the hole is indeed there. The carb throat is very clean too; it is a new carb.
There is a chance that the engine sat for a while and the carb is just gummed up. Right? It was pulled from a wrecked Beetle, I'm guessing less than 10k miles.
When I first got the bus, it idled ok. Then I saw that the cutoff solenoid was loose (!) tightened it and then lost my idle with the 009. And the rest is madness. This carb seems to want more air.
I've never seen a carb 1/2 adjust, usually if they are gummy the adjustments won't do squat. Nor have I seen an adjustment change overnight! Should I blast the hell out of it with Gumout, or does that sound like a waste of time? Otherwise I'll have to rebuild it, and if it still doesn't work I haven't solved anything.
This is what I need, $200:
