STALL OUT PROBLEM!!


THE 62 ACADIAN S/W IS GIVING ME A HARD TIME..WHEN I STEP ON THE BRAKE FAIRLY QUICK IT STALLS OUT..confuse THE IDLE IS UP,IF I THROTTLE THE GAS IT HELPS BUT YOU CAN TELL IT WANTS TO QUIT..IT HAS POWER BRAKES,I`VE CHECKED TO SEE IF IT HAS A VACUUM LEAK ALL GOOD,THE VACUUM ADVANCED IS WORKING,THE CARB,WAS REBUILT,I BYPASSED THE FUEL TANK WITH A GAS CAN STILL THE SAME..ONLY THING I CAN THINK OF IS A FAULTY FUEL PUMP BUT THAT`S NEW..ANY IDEAS...THANKS

It seems to me there is something in the carb that causes that but I forget what it is. Float level maybe. Anyone?

float could have a leak in it which would make it sink instead of float.
you may have to take it apart and test the float in water.

Is there a dash pot on the throttle on a one barrel carb like the two barrel and four barrel carbs. This was ussed as a anti stall device when hard braking. If so maybe not working or needs adjusting.

thanks for the input fellow c/per`s that makes since with the float set to low..i`ll be pulling that little one barrel apart tonight and checking the level..so after pulling the top part of the carb off would you say it should have about 1/2 or 3/4 full of gas in the bowl..

Do these one barrels have an idle mixture set screw? If it was a 2 or 4 barrel I'd be settng that up first, then adjust idle speed before taking the carb apart.

If in motion, does it make any difference if you're moving forward or backwards?.
There was a thread on the Yenko site w/ a similar problem about a year ago that turned out to be the battery!.
I'll try and dig the thread up as it covered lots of good things to check before the problem was found..

 it runs fine in park..and it doesn`t stall when i`am in reverse and hit the brakes..if i go very easy on the brake pedal  it`s fine.but hard on the brakes or left hand turn it conks out like it starving for gas..

 I HAD THIS PROBLEM YEARS AGO IN MY '69 NOVA. CAR WOULD DIE MAKING LEFT-HAND TURNS, TURNED OUT IT WAS THE BATTERY MOVING AND SHORTING OUT ON THE FENDER. SECURED THE BATTERY, PROBLEM GONE. NOT SURE IF THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM, BUT MAYBE WORTH CHECKING OUT.

Does touching the brakes while stationary makes any difference?.
While in motion or not, does it always run Ok at higher revs?.

there should be a neg wire from batt to rad support and a small copper braid from firewall to under valve cover. and to be 100% sure i took a neg wire from under same bolt on rad support to engine block
I burnt out a wiring harness when the braid from firewall to valve cover broke and i could not figure out why a ground wire in my harness was getting red hot and cooking the harness..
it was using the harness to get the neg for starter

i pulled the top half off the carb..lots of gas in the bowl..i don`t think it`s gas related. as soon as i put the car in gear (drive or reverse) it stalls..could it be a transmission problem..confuse i did a bit of research and a bad" lock up solenoid" will cause this problem.anybody heard of this before.....

Do you have a later model transmsission in there? The original trans would not have a lock up converter, so no solenoid for the converter in it that could be causing it.

Did you try re adjusting  the air idle mixture screws yet with a vacuum gauge ? They have to be set when engine warmed up not cold or will stall out when put into gear.
