I'm restoring a 1930 Hupmobile S, as close to original as I can. I've gone completely through the engine, new rings, gaskets, cylinders sleeved, etc. It has an updraft carb on it, I bought new one that fit a JD tractor.
I have a spark to the plugs (I got quite the "shock" figuring that one out)
I'm getting fuel to the carb, running it gravity from the vacuum tank.
The engine turns over well, I'm getting a good amount of suction on the air intake on the carb while its turning over.
After turning over the engine for a while, and choking the carb while doing so, I have taken a spark plug off and don't smell gasoline under the plug, only the Marvel Mystery Oil I have put in there.
Also, after turning over the engine for a while, and choking the carb while doing so, I get a couple teaspoons of fuel that pours out the air intake of the carb.
I have had it fire once, but only once, and there was a decent flame that came out of the exhaust with that one.
I'm at a loss for what I'm doing wrong here. Any help from the hive would be much appreciated.
