I have an issue of sputtering/hesitation and what feels like "running out of gas" every time I make a right turn. When I bought the car it would backfire several times and was a little difficult to drive. Once I had the Carburetor rebuilt, it drove significantly better. I was delighted that the fuel issue was eliminated after the rebuild, or so I thought. About the 5th to 7th time driving it, I began to notice sputtering and hesitation on right turns. I tried to duplicate the problem on left handed turns but had no success. However when it comes to right turns, its like clockwork. Last night, while driving straight, pulling away from a traffic light, it backfired badly and blew the muffler out. I'm assuming this is a fuel issue and the best thing is to take it back to the gentleman that rebuilt the carburetor. However, prior to doing so, I wanted to obtain more information and educate myself a little from the all the experienced folks within this forum. Things like incorrect float adjustment, something vibrating loose, poorly tightened screws, etc. or am I way off?
I have a Roberts Gordon 80k BTU heater in my garage that has just recently started to backfire. When it is trying to ignite, it makes two loud bangs back to back and then stops trying to ignite until the next cycle. Anyone ever had a problem like this? It was recently converted over to natural gas using the kit from the manufacturer. I'm wondering if its a gas inlet setting that is off, or if there is a leak in the pressure valve. **Edit** This usually happens when it is very cold 10 deg Fahrenheit or below.
