    Just finished putting my q-jet back together (for the umtheenth time). Now it wants to shoot fuel out the choke baffle. Will not idle and has a huge bog. What did I do? When I pulled the air horn 3 of those tubes had fallen in and the two smaller (inside ones) were somewhat jammed in the bowl.

    I already don't like the sound of it . Do you want another core with a decent airhorn ?

    Could it be a float issue. It feels real rich. And spits gas out after it dies.

    I got the tubes in fine. It was working okay before I was just chasing a bog.

    Could be a float level . I'm just concerned with the tubes coming out , and the gas spurting out . You have never overtightened it , right ? And the gasket if your careful can survive a few taking aparts .

    I make no promises.

    I could use a new air horn if you have one.
