Popping on Overrun

1.6 Pinto with Weber 2V carb. Searching suggests popping is due to mixture too weak. Presumably this would be the idle setting ?
Do you enrich the idle mixture by screwing the idle adjustment screw IN ? or OUT ?





I'm addicted to brake fluid, but I can stop anytime.

It can be caused by a air leak in the exhaust too

I would check for air leaks as suggested, but also check the inlet manifold. If its letting air get in, it could cause popping.

What is a good way to spot air leaks in an exhaust and inlet system?

WD 40 is a good test for air leaks on the induction side spray on manifold and see if tickover / revs increase

So again the specific question - Do you enrich the idle mixture by screwing the idle adjustment screw IN ? or OUT ? (on a Weber 2V )

carbs

i would say you screw it out but theres no harm in marking the current posission and then trying both as long as you can put it back to wear it was.

popping is usually due to over fueling or air leaks if the mixture is too weak they tend to spit out the carbs

I also wondered if it could be too much ignition advance - take your foot off accelerator and vacuum advances timing too much ?

I thought popping on overrun is almost normal.

Having had a few "old cars" with SU carbs, they can be great at popping/banging, and later versions introduced a naff little valve in the carb butterfly to enable air to be sucked through on overrun. These often get soldered up.

It is because when the butterfly is shut, there is a bigger vacuum over the jet, sucks more fuel, but much less air. Unburnt fuel enters hot exhaust, and burns there instead. Bang. Same sort of reason you can get flames out he exhaust if you try

If the car is running correctly everywhere else, I would leave it. Otherwise you need to fit some sort of overrun valve.

In to richen I believe, the screw increases the amount of air to mix with the fuel from the idle jet.
