My neighbor brought over his 1965 Ford 4000 gas over today for me to look at. Problem is it runs about 5 minutes then quits. I ran it some today and experienced the same problem. After it died I squirted it with starting fluid cranked right back up on starting fluid and kept running as long as I sprayed it.
I started at the fuel tank..looked in it with a light and it was pretty clean. Good fuel flow when line is disconnected from tank. Flushed the remaining lines which were also fairly clean. Removed line from carb and cranked over engine and received good fuel flow from the fuel pump.
I currently have carb all apart and soaking in cleaner. It was a little gunky. Gonna clean it good and get a kit for it. What should I be looking for in this carb? I"m use to working on Marvel Scheblers not Holley"s like this one. Thanks for any help.
