Main or secondary poppet stuck open, or spring missing. Main bypass installed backwards or in wrong hose - see reference #2. Loose or damaged pump inlet hose. Idle mixture set incorrectly. Worn pump; pump set for wrong rotation; broken drive. Fouled spark plugs or weak ignition. Camshaft improperly timed. Main or secondary poppet stuck open, or spring missing. Restricted main bypass hose. Plugged or dirty nozzles, nozzle screens, or nozzle hose. Loose or damaged pump inlet hose. Vent in fuel tank too small - see reference #2. Throttle stops not adjusted properly - see reference #3. Throttle plates not synchronized or cross-link not adjusted - see reference #3. Twisted throttle shaft or worn throttle shaft bores - see reference #3. Throttle plates installed backwards or bent - see reference #3. Spring in main bypass too weak - see reference #4. Idle mixture too lean or air leak at manifold gasket - see reference #5. Fouled spark plugs or weak ignition. Main bypass poppet stuck closed or spring too stiff. Main bypass installed backwards or restricted bypass hose - see reference #2. Vent in fuel tank too small - see reference #2. Idle mixture set too rich - see reference #5. Nozzle vents restricted or plugged (nozzles located below throttle plates). Barrel valve spool worn excessively. Idle mixture set too lean or air leak at manifold gasket - see reference #5. Main or secondary poppet stuck open or spring missing. Improper barrel valve spool or linkage geometry. Ignition too far advanced. Bent or leaking intake valve. Camshaft not properly timed. Fouled spark plugs or weak ignition. Throttle plates not synchronized or cross-link not adjusted - see reference #3. Twisted throttle shaft or worn throttle shaft bores - see reference #3. Throttle plates installed backwards or bent - see reference #3. Dirty or bent rod end bearing. Manifold not evenly tightened down. Manifold damaged, bushings loose, linkage geometry incorrect. Bolt securing one of the rod ends overtightened (deformed ball). No shut-off valve or internally leaking shut-off valve. Fuel level in tank above nozzles without shut-off valve. Bad pump seal; leaks into engine (Not on belt drive pumps). Hose between shut-off valve and barrel valve picking up heat; fuel in hose boils, thus expanding into engine.
