'73 MGB (HIF-4's) been running great until today. This morning - it started
running rough at a light about 1.5 miles from home - actually stumbled and
stalled. Restarting required choke - unusual for this distance with 70
degree ambient temperature. I continued in to work - another 6 miles -
requiring 1/2 choke to keep it from popping and sputtering.
The ride home (84 degrees ambient) required a small amount of choke the full
way also. In examining the carbs - the rear is VERY hot to the touch and
the piston appears to be approx. 1/16 - 1/8 inch higher with flow balanced
between the two. Any ideas as to what could get the rear carb so hot
(compared to the front)?
One other thing - now that the temperature is on the rise - the temperature
gauge looks on the low side of normal - not sure what t-stat (if any) is in
there - that's one of this weekend's tasks as well.
