Autolite 2100's are a simple, reliable carburetor. My first car came with one. Only reason I changed it was because I wanted more performance. The carb in the picture you looked at is on my D-coder; it's the 4V version of that carb. I've had that carb (and car) for 10 years now and have never rebuilt it. Since my mom's stroke last year, the car has been sitting in her garage (swapped cars so she wouldn't be able to drive) and I just started it a couple of weeks ago after it having sat for 6 months. Dumped a couple tablespoons of gas down the carb and it cranked right up and ran fine.
Once you get it right, you'll forget all about this....*G*
Thanks. She still gets her days wrong sometimes and runs into things (vision is gone on left side) but otherwise is still healthy and will be 82 next month. Just no driving anymore *G*
I don't know what that item is that was included in your kit. Haven't seen it before. The pump should work with the other parts you've installed. Verify proper adjustment and operation. Also, check your float level and operation of the pump inlet check (by operating the pump with the lid off). You shouldn't see any reversion into the bowl when actuating the pump. Double-check on the nozzle check which is mounted under the venturi retaining screw. If it is sticking, that could account for your problem.
You nailed it. I bought a rebuild kit for 12 bucks. Replaced the
accel. pump and the float mech. blew out the venturi repl.
a few gaskets bolted it together and VIOLA a started car is born. THANK YOU for your help...................Blake ::
