Hey Vic,
This is Mike Sydney from Homosassa. We met in Dawsonville. My 40 Flatty is acting like it is starving for gas when I get over 50mph. Carb seems to have plenty of fuel. Got any ideas? Fuel pump? Fuel line? Air leak?

Hi Mike, Your description of the problem could be attributed to any and all of the things you mentioned however, I would check for any vacuum leaks and adequate fuel flow from the fuel pump to the carb. Also, check at idle, turn the air/fuel mixture screws one at a time to see if they produce any change in the engine idle. If they do not, that would most likely indicate a bad power valve. If everything with respect to fuel delivery is up to par and the carb adjustments do have an effect, I'd check the timing/distributor, etc. Without actually being there, it's tough to pin down the source(s) of the problem.

Have you tried slowly pulling out the choke to see if it goes away ? Also make sure your fuel pump isnt sucking air around the lid if you have a steel bowl fuel pump. If its a glass bowl make sure it isnt sucking air around the top of the glass bowl.
