Hi there all I'm new here and this has got to be the coolest mopar site ever! I have been searching for a site to share my love for ramchargers and other mopar stuff!

I have a question regarding my 2bb holly carb on my 318 it has the symptoms of the rochester fuel bowl draining the fuel out of the bowls in the how to's section.

could this be very similar,if I dont start the truck for about 1 day ore more it takes alot of cranking to get it fired up.

The carb is a new rebuild replacement but a sudden sickness left the truck in the shop till I got better so the warrenty is blown so it's up to me I guess.

any help would be greatly appriciated thank you in advance Mike. ;D

And yes it seems the squirt is not a normal full shot like the fuel level is down.after sitting down.

Sounds like the needle/seat has a small grain of dirt/debris/etc in it preventing the needle from seating completely, which would allow the bowl(s) to drain. Try cleaning out the needle/seat assembly.
