Nissan 720 Passing Emmisions

Ok so problem was the fuel solenoid vacuum switch was caught in a feed back loop. After adjusting boost control it was solved. Switched out all the vac lines and am confident they are right. Switched out cap and rotor plugs and wires and definitely big improvements for rough idle I had before. I still feel like I'm running rich even with the idle mix screw all the way in. I read that there is another part that controls the mix but all the manual said was to have the dealer do this. What should I be looking for next?

 

Datsun Mike grace me with your vast wisdom 🙂

Does your engine have an O2 sensor in the exhaust manifold?

 

The idle mix screw is set and then plugged at the factory. Are you sure you are adjusting the actual mixture screw??? It's under an aluminum plug here...

Yeah I'm definitely adjusting that one. That the screw driver is sitting in. On my rebuilt carb there was no plug. It's the lower one right?  I'll have to check on o2 sensor in the morning. Also just found the ECU which po told me was not part of car.

Look also for a round 6 wire electrical plug at the back of the carburetor, that and the O2 sensor would make it an ECC feedback carburetor. The primary jet is replaced with a solenoid that vibrates open and closed to meter the fuel into the carburetor using the O2 sensor in a feedback loop to constantly adjust the mixture. Does not work at idle, when not warmed up and at full throttle.

So it looks like the only wires I have coming off the carb are the 2 wire Fuel Shut off solenoid and the Electric Thermal Choke. Also didn't see any connectors floating around back there

So i've been thinking and now i'm curious if my float bowl height might be too high. I don't have a viewer but it could explain the constant over rich condition right.

That's good news. Carburetors run best when the fuel level is correct.

 

If the idle mix screw is all the way in it shouldn't idle. So something not right there. Is the idle at or around 750??? Too high and you won't be using the idle circuit.

Thats what i was thinking. My tach is dead. i tried reflowing the board but wasn't able to get anything out of it so i'll pick up a photo tach later today and get a reading off of that. 

is there a good way to tune the float level when you don't have the window? (something like tighten the screw all the way then back off 1.5 turns)

There should be a small round sight glass on the front of the carburetor. It will have a small white dot where the fuel level should be.

My carb doesn't have a window. I spose i could add in a piece of glass if i try hard enough. but without that is there no way to tune?

So I just failed again, but it's the lowest scores across the board that I have gotten which is a win. Down to 130's in CO. The test shows that it's great during decel and horrible during acceleration leading me to think a new jet would be helpful but confirming my fears of having way too much fuel entering the system.

Ok so continuing to dig I was able to find the fuel air mix solenoid. But it's behind a Welch plug. I plan to drill that out and adjust it tomorrow. Hopefully that will offer me more options in terms of tuning... Any one say that this is a terrible idea? It's this part even adjustable? Diagrams are not as detailed as I would like. If it's not electrically controlled how is this actuated?

This is not an ECC feedback carburetor which DO have a solenoid for the primary jet. It's also definitely NOT a stock carburetor. I have no idea what Orilley's sell.

 

The ECC is operated electrically through a 6 wire plug at the rear of the carburetor. You don't have this.

 

Under there would be close to the power valve.

 

The primary jet is under the fuel bowl left of your finger. probably a 107 jet, y ou could try something closer to 100 to lean it out. I got a dozen assorted motorcycle carburetor jets on Amazon for $10 and they fit Hitachi carbs.

Any chance I can get a link? I don't do motorcycles but I'm sure there are different types of jets. It seems to really match the diagrams of the carb in my service manual . I just think it's missing the window but I'm no expert. Could also be a fully rebuilt ebay one. I opened the top off the carb and it def has something that interfaces with valve at the bottom

The power valve is in the center. The plunger on a spring drops down from the carburetor top and is activated by vacuum. Drilling out that plug would probably be a bad idea.

ok Cool so i think i found generic motorcycle carb jets. that are metric which should line up with it being a japanese carb. but they are for like 150cc motors so i'm a bit confused on that. 
unless i'm mistaken (because i haven't been able to take the carb apart today. it should be an M5. x .8 thread with a #100 diameter nozzle. although i might just run it even leaner than that given my insane numbers. also thinking of dialing back the pilot too to probably be the 107 instead of the larger bore. But thats just a thought right now. Ill lay off from drilling out the plug and see if i can get there with the jets 


if these parts look right some sort of confirmation would be great. 
Cheers,
Smith

Get the ones farther down the page lower left that start at 90. The California jets start at 94 not that you woulld want to go that low. These range from 90 to 150. You might want to be able to go down into the high 90s.
