Hello...i am running a 3300A with a bing carb. lately i have been having issues. If i pull the throttle cable back till it stops it stalls the engine...if i adjust the cable to full throttle it starts missing during climb out like it has too much fuel and i have begun having issues with carb ice. at least it acts like carb ice when i pull on the carb heat it runs rough and then straightens out....my worst issue is the engine stall...anyone have similar issues and fixes?
I actually like the Bing, once I understood the different systems and how they are supposed to work. The sensing port was very rough inside and once cleaned and smoothed out made an improvement, as it gave more air energy to the atomizer to shear fuel. This is why it is very critical to make sure there is nothing remotely in front of this port entry, located at the 6 o'clock position of the carb air entry. Even an air elbow that is too close to the entry can influence this port..
i will look for that...I plan on getting a rebuild kit and installing it
Inflight shutdowns should NOT be the norm.
Once you accept it as the norm, you are the test pilot of a poor design.
Now, be 100% sure your throttle cable support bracket is 100% attached to the engine, and not to the firewall. If it is attached to the firewall, the thing will shut down at every landing
thanks jan...will check it
