Accelerating Pump Stroke Adjustments
To satisfy acceleration requirements in various climates, the
accelerating pump discharge can be adjusted (Fig. 55).
The bottom hole (No. 2) in the acceleration pump cam and
the throttle lever provides the maximum pump discharge for
extreme cold weather and the top hole (No. 1) provides the
minimum pump discharge for warm weather operation. If a
change in the adjustment is required, make certain the proper
hole (top or bottom) in plastic accelerating pump cam, located
behind the throttle lever, is properly aligned (indexed) with the
numbered hole (top or bottom) in the throttle lever before
installing the retaining screw.
With engine temperature normalized and engine operating at
specified curb idle speed, depress dashpot plunger and
measure distance between plunger and throttle lever (see
SPECIFICATIONS). The shank of a new drill may be used to
check this adjustment.
To adjust the setting, loosen locknut and screw the dashpot in
or out as required. When the desired setting is obtained,
tighten locknut on dashpot against the bracket. Recheck idle
With vacuum applied to throttle modulator loosen locknut and
adjust modulator until engine operates at specified RPM (see
