Gawdamnit. Who here knows carbs?

Firebird won’t start, smoke coming from the carb.

For the last week I’ve been firing up the Firebird, letting it idle for 15-20min, then parking it again. Just getting the cobwebs out before any road tests. Took it out today for the first time, one mile to Kroger to fill the tank with top notch gas, and one mile home. Started great, ran fine.

I wanted to drive it to dinner tonight. Wouldn’t start. Noticed some white smoke coming from where a vacuum line clearly just vacated. No problem, new line put on. No go.


Tldr: worked for the last few weeks, earlier for first road test. Didn’t work tonight. White smoke from carb. Turns over, won’t fire.
