ive soaked carbs in good cleaners, that tiny brass stem in the carb bowl had a bunch of debris at the bottom of the passage. had to use a drill bit n lightly run it thru there with that small stem removed. pulled out alot of debris n really helped my old 460.

Are you referring to the small stem that the main adjusting screw at the bottom of the carb. pokes into? If sits all the way at the bottom of the carb well and looks like it would be pretty tough to get out. How did you remove it? Is it pressed in there? Screwed in?

should have the IH carb on it. i think the main jet size is around .055. pop that bowl off n go to the harware n find numbered drill bits. find the bit that fits the main jet as the starting point, then go up 3 sizes bigger. I would say that a .080 main jet would help the stumble n power loss if nothing else is wrong. my old 460 with a 263, the carb jetting was .090 on the main jet size, but i had her running 2300rpm. ran great! another way would be to find a 715 combine carburator that has extra ports to deliver fuel better.

Thanks for the suggestion ss409. Not sure I want to go there yet. I need to eliminate all other possibilities before starting to modify things. When/if I ever get this sorted out...I'll let you guys know what I found.

no, thats the main jet. this stem sits in the bowl gasket surface of the carb bowl,sits right in front of the venturi hole,, sticks up,, n remove it with a small std screwdriver. this is a deep internal port that can have alot of crud hidden thatll cause some problems in tuning. find ya a numbered drill bit that fits in, once that stem is removed n see if theres any debris inside. a side note, plug gap, and indexing the plugs helps run better in cold weather. ive taken spark plugs out then hooked up to the coil wire n then looked at the spark at the plug. adjust gap till you get a good hot spark.
