choke adjustment?

Help Please!

I've just inspected my '66 200ci mustang -- a gift from my brother. Eons ago I used to work on these cars but it's been 20 years. This car needs help.

The car is running... but not well. Once it warms up, it tends to stall as I accelerate from a stop (a stop sign or traffic light). Runs fine cold.

I'm thinking a choke adjustment, but not sure. It's got a Carter YF carb I believe...

Can anybody help?? Thanks a bunch,
Dawn

PS Grew up in Lansdale, PA and used to come to the Mustang Barn for parts when I was a kid :-)

Maybe you should go back to Glazier-Nolan (Mustang Barn) an seek Fred's opinion.
You really have to go back and check all of the basic settings. But, check them with a fully warmed engine. BTW< buy a shop manual from Fred, as well.
Good Luck!

Sounds like it could be a hole in the accelerator pump diaphram.

Thanks for the advice.... taking it to a shop for diagnosis. Already have the shop manual. Is the accelerator pump part of the carb, so a carb rebuild might be in order?

Yep - Accelerator pump is part of the carb. Probably due for a rebuild but I would check all the other stuff as well. Plugs, wires, timing etc.
