Engine Surges at idle

Asked by Aug 15, 2017 at 11:16 PM about the 1981 Ford F-250 STD Standard Cab 4WD LB HD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Engine runs smoothly at start up, but when the
choke opens it starts to surge. I've rebuilt the
carburator, replaced fuel pump and filter. Replaced
vacuum hoses and intake/exhaust gasket. New
plugs, wires and distributer cap. All have been
checked and rechecked...
What am I over looking?

1 Answer

Sorry it's a 300ci inline 6 Single barrel carburator.
