Car won't idle for more than 45 seconds
I was running a hot wire to the starter solenoid from my new carb w/ an electric choke and started to experience a new problem. The car would start and idle fine. When taking the car for a drive, The car would start to die sooner and sooner each trip, It was difficult to get it started then. After some Heart issues I let the car sit for 6 months. Now, I can't get it out of the garage because it will only idle for 45 seconds and then turns off. No stutter or stumble it just shuts off. The car fires right back up without even touching the throttle. My buddy and I tuned the carb last night and it purrs like a kitten for 45 seconds then dies. Is it possible I might have caused some problems trying to run a hot wire from the electric choke to the starter solenoid? I replaced the carb with one with a mechanical choke. I run MSD ignition (6AL) in my 289 66 fastback. Another thing we did was replace all new springs in the distributor at the time. I purchased a new ignition switch and a new MSD blaster 2 coil from summit. If that does not work what should I consider?
