  1. No Idle, etc

    Need some help with my '53 B4B. First startup accomplished, not running great, not willing to idle. Here's a link to a first startup, skip to 2 minute mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8Qjoi5J9t4&feature=youtu.be Solved the oil filter leak problem with a thicker gasket, but it's running a bit rough. Idle screw adjustment didn't seem to have any affect on getting it to idle properly. The first and second freeze plugs were dripping a little, (reminder: this engine was re-built in Los Angeles 8 or so years ago, finally just running now). I'm hoping they seal themselves! Question: Does the oil gauge line work by having oil in it, or is it just transmitting air pressure? Oil is definitely going up into line to gauge. Gauge seems pinned off scale. I have the gauge line attached to port between cyl #2 and #3. The filter is hooked up as per photo in thread below ("Oil Overflowing!" ) The ignition is electronic, no gap to set. Wires are in the right order. I just installed rebuild kit parts in carburetor from Mike's Carburetor, followed his video too. But I could have done something wrong. Carb is Carter BB DTL2, with extra dashpot for semi auto transmission. I'm assuming that whistling sound is carb intake with no air filter on top.
