Hi all. I have a 1995 landcruiser (Euro version) thats been sitting, ignored. Car starts with carb cleaner and runs until warm, then stops idling. I opened the mixture screw 1 1/2 turns and tried increasing idle speed but N.G. Would really appreciate any suggestions. Thanks
Remove idle mixture screw. Spray carb cleaner into the hole. Install mixture screw with spring and turn in gently until bottomed out. Unscrew 1 3/4 turns. Make sure your electric choke is working properly, ie, voltage to the choke coil with ignition on. Start it and see if the choke plate opens slowly as the engine warms up. Turn the mixture screw to get highest and smoothest idle. Clockwise is lean, counter clockwise is rich. Check the air filter, fuel filter and timing. This should get you started.
Next best thing is a carb rebuild kit if you can find one. I just usually change out the carb to a new Weber.
It is pretty much a bolt on procedure and setting up the new linkage. You vehicle will love you. The Webers also come with the newer Viton parts that won't dissolve from the alcohol in today's gas.
The intake manifold has coolant running through it, but I never had any taking the carb off. Probably need to drain some coolant off the radiator, install the carb then refill and burp the radiator. Did you remove the carb or the entire intake manifold?
