my lemans keeps stalling out
tried to start my 68 lemans the other day, and it would not start. I had fuel running out the top of the carb, & someone pointed out here on the forum that the float might be stuck.. sure enough, I tapped on the carb, and it then started and ran fine.
I take it out for a little ride in town. everything was going fine for 5 minutes or so, and all of a sudden it started puking and dieing. I pulled over and tried to start it. It started right up and I revved it up. pulled away from the curb and made it about 100 feet and it started dieing again. This went for about 6 or 7 more times, and then I parked it at home. I went out and tried it again a few hours later, and it started right up and ran fine for about 2 minutes, and then started acting up again.
It has a new fuel tank and sending unit.
Is it possible something is floating around in the fuel bowl in the carb, and after it runs awhile, it plugs up the hole ?
I feel the problem is definately fuel related, because I can get it to do it by messing with the throttle....
any ideas? I was almost wondering if the fuel filter could do this?
