the carb on my truck keeps randomly flooding out and running incredibly rich! took 20 minuts to get out of the school paring lot today, and man, by the time i got out of there i had gone through a 1/4 tank of gas, and the whole parking lot was a big cloud of black smoke, it was actually kind of funny but pissed me of at the same time. any ideas on why it does this sometimes? and then other times runs great? what do u guys think could be causing this? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

Sounds like dirt in the carb, keeping the rods from seating. I have had that many times (now I just have a new one thankfully). Just take a crash course in rebuilding. It is a piece of cake if your mechanically inclined and have patience. Now if it won't run right when your done keep this in mind, as these carbs age the throttle shafts wear the baseplate and create a vacuum leak. Hope it helps /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
