    Timing help with the 2.8

    With the original feedback carb they had the #50 jets and the feedback solenoid controlled the air bleed into the high speed circuit. The computer would allow more air into the venturi cluster reducing the amount of fuel in the mix. If your still running the feedback carb just pull the feedback...

    Timing help with the 2.8

    Yes the #50 high speed jets made mine bog down pulling a mountain pass an belch black smoke. Once I put in the #42 jets it give me plenty of power pulling a hill. I never had a issue with total timing either just disconnect the vacuum advance and set the timing at 10 degrees. If your carb is not...

    1985 Bronco 2 Duraspark Distributor with HEI Conversion

    Try pulling the feedback solenoid and just punch a couple small holes in the diaphram and put in #42 main jets. That should bring it to life I found adjusting the idle needles out 3-3 1/2 turns from lightly seated helps also.

    I need help understanding this. Please, Shed some light on it for me.

    The 2150 has air bleed jets/holes in the venturi cluster one on each side of the bolt that holds the cluster in. The 2150a feedback carb controls the air bleed with the solenoid on the back of the carb. I supose you could just drill a couple small air bleed holes on top of the emulsion tubes in...

    I need help understanding this. Please, Shed some light on it for me.

    Put smaller jets in it .042 as far as the hesitation I found putting a power valve that opens at 8hg helped alot with the dead spot in mine... I you pull the carb always install new carb base gaskets.

    1985 2.8 Carb Adjustments

    Do not replace the cat if you have old valve guide seals. Oil in the exhaust will quickly destroy the new cat. You can replace the seals without pulling the heads. I am on my third year with autolite single platinum plugs cold starts like a dream. Slap the muffler with the palm of your hand if...

    84 bronco II duraspark and carb conversion

    I wish I would have known more before going all through the carb issue. Someone should just try using the stock carb with .042 jets and see how she does. Just run the vacuum advance off the manifold vac. If it still runs rich just punch a couple pin holes in the air bleed diaphram on the back...

    duraspark 2150 carb spacer

    I have tried getting the carb spacer felpro# 60529 added to the 2.8l duraspark conversion in the tech library for the 2100 or 2150 non feedback carb. It plugs the large vacuum leak where the throttle position senser was on the 2150a feedback carb. Put the carb spacer on the egr spacer and add a...
