Stalls on hard turn/stop

867 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  red66
When I stop hard, or turn hard, with foot off accelerator, the engine stalls.

I have replaced my carb (Ebrock 1405) and it still does it.

What now?

Check the float level. It may not be correct.

Good luck.

Marty, did you check to make sure your ground strap is on good and tight. Mine was stalling sometimes on hard turns/accellerations and it turned out the ground strap was loose. Oopps:)

P.S It was good to see you and Jason Saturday night!

Ground strap? It's suppose to have a ground strap?

Please let me know if you find out your problem. I'm plagued with a similar problem and I can't get to the bottom of it.

The carburetor float level could be the problem. Make sure any baffels are in place in the float bowl. Low float levels are usually the cause, hard stops or turns can cause the fuel to move away from the jets.
Probably the carb floats but if it has points, check the gap. Mine used to stall going from forward to reverse--points weren't gapped properly.

Just a thought.

Would a bran new carb have this problem? I had the problem with the old one too.
I have tapped the new carb a bit, just to loosen anything stuck, with no change.
