If carbureter loads up after considerable service, check float level. Wear on lip of float lever will raise float level. Before adjusting float, be sure float lever pin is firmly seated. Reset float level by bending lip of float lever away from needle to raise level, or bend lip toward needle to lower float level. Bend vertical lip of float only.
If motor stalls while idling, set throttle lever adjusting screw so motor runs approximately 300 r. p. m. Then set idle adjustment screw to specifications. If these adjustments do not correct the trouble, remove idle orifice tube and plug assembly. Clean tube and passages with compressed air.
If acceleration is not satisfactory remove pump jet and clean with compressed air. However, it is usually advisable to replace the pump jet, as its cost is nominal. All jets must be seated gasoline tight.
Poor acceleration in 1937-1940 models may be due to dam-aged or worn plunger leather in accelerating pump, sediment in pump cylinder or clogged intake ball check at bottom of pump cylinder and discharge ball check in discharge pas-sage. If plunger is removed from cylinder, use care in installing to avoid damage to plunger leather.
Excessive richness above 50 miles per hour may be caused by a clogged main vent tube. After removal of rivet plug beneath float bowl with tool No. T109-42, main vent tube can be removed and a new tube inserted with tool No. T109-70. Care must be exercised in inserting new tube which must seat tightly. Use new rivet to complete the installation.
Pump Adjustment: With air horn assembly removed and throttle adjustment screw backed out, locate pump operating link in center hole of throttle shaft arm. Place base of pump travel gauge T109-117S on upper edge of casting with lip of gauge extending over top of plunger shaft. Turn knurled nut until lip of gauge just touches the top of plunger shaft. The difference in readings obtained at closed and wide open throttle (push plunger to bottom of cylinder with fingers at wide open throttle) should be "27" (27/64") on E6M1, "26" (26/64") on E6N1, E6N2, E6N3, E6S1, E6S2, E6P1, E6P2, E6P3, E6P5. No pump adjustment required on E6F2, E6G1, E6H1, E6I1, E6K1 to E6K4.
Pump stroke adjustable for high or low temperature. Set to longest stroke for cold weather, shorter stroke for hot weather driving.
