Hello, I have 2 Carter 3211 carbs. Both of them overflows everytime I hit the gas and gas goes all over the motor. Any help is needed. I have tried everything but nothing is helping. Both carbs are rebuilt.
Thank you.

The most common cause of this would be the purchase of one of the cheap FLAPS carburetor rebuilding kits.

The fuel valve orifice in the YF's designed for Chevrolet is significantly smaller than the orifice designed for the 300 CID Ford 6, which is what comes in most (maybe all) of the FLAPS kits.


Good carburetion is fuelish hot air!

The most expensive carburetor you will ever the incorrect one you attempt to modify!

If you truly believe "one size fits all", trying walking a mile in your spouse's shoes!
