  1. Looking for some help, I Had some heavy hesitation under acceleration and serious misfiring so recently I replaced the plugs, ignition wire set, distributor cap, rotor and coil, also adjusted the float as to manual recommendations. After about 40 miles of driving over a one month period it now cuts out and having real problems starting and again if i get it going under any real acceleration it is hesitating and misfiring. Quick look underneath and the carb is wet leaking a lot of gas and all the new plugs have heavy deposits of carbon on them(too rich??) Checked the float again and seems ok , it is still the 1 bbl carter installed. After a bit of tweaking around myself I took it to a local shop and they got her running for about 15 miles and then same issues again, they think it is the auto choke not working correctly, normally you can hear the spring 'clicking' when its switching itself on and off but that is not happening all the time. Has anyone had any experience of this before, should I get new choke for it and go from there? has anyone ever tried a conversion to a good old manual choke on these things? Any help is appreciated, cheers
  2. Thanks captden29 I will open it up and see. September last year there was a rebuild on the carb from a reputable gentleman. I will look at the timing again and have a closer look at the wires, the set was recommended by another Plymouth owner but you are certainly right about the quality of some of these new parts
  3. Good day to all, I am new to this forum and I am looking for some help regarding my '50 Plymouth Special Deluxe. She is unrestored in great condition overall with 70k miles on it. Had some heavy hesitation under acceleration and serious misfiring so recently I replaced the plugs, ignition wire set, distributor cap, rotor and coil, also adjusted the float as to manual recommendations. After about 40 miles of driving over a one month period it now cuts out and having real problems starting and again if i get it going under any real acceleration it is hesitating and misfiring. Quick look underneath and the carb is wet leaking a lot of gas and all the new plugs have heavy deposits of carbon on them(too rich??) Checked the float again and seems ok , it is still the 1 bbl carter installed. Anyone out there can recommend as to where things could be going wrong and where best to start with the diagnosis?? Any help much appreciated! Cheers
