Well I Found The Problem With My Edelbrock

Been having a problem with it not idleing down, spent the weekend cleaning the carb, lubing linkage and cables etc. still wasen't working. So I pulled the accelerator pump out to find that the blue "washer / grommet" on the bottom of the shaft had disintigrated allowing gas to get on top of the pump "hydrolocking" the shaft down. Just an FYI incase anyone else is having a high idle problem (having to blip the throttle to get it to idle down).

Thanks for the update Agent! Glad you figured it out.

Agent,

Did you just order the part from Edelbrock or do you have a homemade substitution? Mine is somewhat doing the same thing. Thanks, Tony

Tony - I called Edelbrock and was told that they don't sell parts retail, only to distributors, they gave me the phone number of a Harley parts store that stocks Edelbrock parts. Here is the website -

You will need the part numbers, here is the schematic and part #'s, thanks to Creeky for posting this a while back - http://www.edelbrock.com/motorcycle/carbs/carb_internals.pdf

Is this the ac pump diaphram that has disintegrated?

I can't find any schematics of this carb on line............

Krannie - if you look at the PDF file posted above - it's # 53 - part # 9098. On the bottom of the shaft is a blue rubber "washer" that's intrigal with the shaft.

Thanks for the PDF. I have been wondering what that 49 pump check ball does. I found it and the 50 needle when they fell out of my carb when cleaning. The needle I put back, but did not know where the ball went. I still cant tell from the pdf. The carb is running well without it. Anyone know what it does, and where it goes?

After reasembling my carb I had that funny feeling that maybe I had lost that check ball, but after pulling the accelerator pump I noticed it in place at the bottom of the pump well.

Funny thing is I have never pulled the pump assembly. I wanted to, but it did not want to come out and I did not want to F something up. Interesting.
