Ah, Okay. That helps a ton. Way easier to figure out than the 1100

well obviously you need to look at it in steps. Since you know you have a problem with fuel not staying in the bowl I would focus on that.

it can only be going out the Power valve on the bottom or the accelerator pump on the side.

You could replace those items on your bench, fill the bowl and see if it holds the fuel or where it leaks from. Obviously if the bowl only goes half empty it is the accelerator pump. If it goes completely empty then the power valve is leaking or you have a crack.

One step at a time. You got this. These are super simple carbs, but they are old. There can be housing cracks. Faulty replacement parts. Make you pull your hair out.
Well hello Tiha, yes your right BUT---I put a new pump valve in and it is not leaking their. I did find a small gap--on the top --where the gasket is.Which would cause a leak their. It leaked at the bottom gasket--the side and top. So when I get back after while. I,m gonna hit it again. I,m also gonna stop in Summersville at my friends Buck. With the kits and carbeurators and let him look at them and have a laugh on me. Been awahile since we seen one another. We talk on the phone .He,s a Viet Nam veteran too .He,s a really great friend. Wonders about me sometimes. hahaha Take care and thanks alot. Have a great day.

Its will start upand about a minute gas starts coming through the base gasket .Then around the lever where it goes through the side of the carb. I even put on a gas regulator--adjusted it down to 1 and 1/3 pounds and a fuel pressure gauge. I have had about 6 or 7 different carbs with new gaskets-float-the works. I have replaced alot of parts on this truck and the carb is all I need to be able to drive it. ,BUT WHATEVE IT IS--I KNOW IT WILL BE SOMETHING SMALL I HAVE OVER LOOKED. I ordered a new kit for it and think I,ll have my friend in Summersville to rebuild me one. That will give me a chance to visit him.ThanksTiha for the advice and I,ll check it out again tomorrow.
I took three carbs to my cousin,s son a couple of days ago. He said he,d have them ready today. Been getting cleaning done in one of my buildings and hope to get the carbs picked up today. Will keep you posted. Have a good day.

the 2100 is the best 2v made in my opinion.
"No gas in float bowl" when U take top of carb off (to C) can B evap. If 'wash down" very bad as it leaks out into motor "washing dwn" the cyl walls so no oil is lubin engine at start up. If not run regularly it may evap (as U said) from hi ETHO content right out of the bowel - but that takes a coupla daays. If U cked carb housings on a flat edg or machinest's "flat table" when rebuilding it's not leaking at gasket. I know they leak (AIR) a "vac leak" @ throttle shaft (alu or alloy body, steel shaft wearing it oval over the yrs). Re-bush kit (inc the reamer) on the net. A leak there COULD be nother source of "empty bowl".
I agree w/Needle'n Seat, cracked housing down low, & power valve as other ideas.
Glad U found Mike's. He told me he has over 1,000 vids on the net now. Sure R helpful on a carb u've never seen B4. Clued me into a carb previously rebuilt (B4 my ownership) re: # of check *****'n a weight dwn ina tube of a carb that was not running right. May have been this 2100 ora 2150...

Yes Mike,s Carb is helpful and so are the people on hear. I don,t run ethanol. Worse junk you can put in any vehicle. I went to pick up my cars today,but he never got to them. He had to unload a load of rock and said he would adjust them tonight. I been trying to catch up on some work and never had any time to tinker this week. Thanks for the information. I,m gonna write down a check list. So I wont (hopefull) forget anything.

UPDATE--I had my cousin,s son look at it . He found the troubles in the jets on all 3 carbeurators. One jet was to short,one was sticking and the other one. The piece where the jet goes down .Was messed up. .He fixed a couple of them,but when I went to put the one on the bronco. I am gonna have to get a fuel filter. Trying to get caught up on work around hear. I might take off and get a filter tomorrow. I,ll keep you guys up to date. Thanks for your help

Sounds like you are making progress.

Yes there are always those odd ball problems when someone else fixed it with incorrect parts.
You can predict that stuff. Only experience fixes those.

I,m ******* them . I got replacemen glass,s at the va about 2 weeks ago. Used them one night and picked up my old ones .That have scotch tape holding them together --plus scratches all over the lens. I can see through them and they don,t hurt my eyes like the new ones did. I called in for some parts for the old truck,bronco and fire bird .I ,ll do some weed-eating and other odd jobs around hear. Till the parts come in.
