I have a 1960 Ford f100 in-line 6...4 speed
carb has been fixed ran good for about a
week now it is hard to start and when it does
start it wants to die when you push Choke
back in it will run with the choke half out but
run rough After it warms up a lil still same
problem when u go to drive it it jumps like it’s
runing out of gas and dies I pulled the
distributor cap off and had a little tiny bit of
look like oil on it what could be the problem
Sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. Check for a vacuum hose off and listen for leaks.
Sounds like you have a couple of things going on, first there should not be any oil in the distributor or cap, usual causes are worn distributor shaft and or distributor housing, to much crankcase pressure forcing oil up the distributor shaft. the running problem sounds like the carb needs overhauled with a kit made to handle this ethanol fuel, you should also replace all the rubber fuel lines with the new multi-fuel hoses and the fuel pump with a new one that is ethanol resistant. Ethanol tends to really mess up older vehicles.
