    Hi guys,

    Another noobie question from me... I had a weber carb installed last fall and the truck has been running well all summer, until last night when I took it out. I stalled at the first stop sign; didn't think too much of it, but then it continued to stall when slowing down and eventually just had to head home.

    Carb IMG_5162.jpeg seems to idle ok, but I noticed fuel is only squirting into one side of the carb bowl, not normal, correct? And easy way to clean this out? I admit I don't know much about these carbs, would it be worth having my local shop tune it up?

    Thanks for any info/help!

    Hey there I too have been troubeshooting an 18rc with a weber. Does it die at idle as well or just when braking? Id suspect a leaky brake booster if my rig was stalling when stopping. Also out of curiosity What idle jet are you running? What is your timing like? I've been having a hell of a time trying to get mine to run right.
