L18 stalling on steep hills?


Recommended Posts

I just moved into a new house, with a very steep drive way - probably 1:.75m incline. The problem is my L18 / Hardbody truck motor stalls – splutters and dies - in a few seconds if I stop on the driveway. This leads to a dangerous situation if I have a heavy trailer on the back – loss of vacuum brakes...truck runs away down the hill! Surely this is a carb problem? It’s a standard Nikki carb, running perfectly other than this problem. Any opinions would be appreciated
