Job well done WineSteam! When I replaced the old Q-Jet with the rebuilt, it was like having a new engine for me. What length is your '77?

I can't take too much credit. Most of the credit lies with the people that gave advice here and the guy that rebuilt my carb. All I did was turn some wrenches. My '77 Argosy is a 24 footer, party wagon floor plan.

That's the scary part of all this. I just had the moho out and moving around earlier last week. No signs of any issues. Then, Sunday, no go. Solution? Carb rebuild - major work in my opinion. I'm happy it decided to do that in my barn and not at a campground. The trip to Disney this fall could be interesting with the motorhome. Hopefully, though, it is seamless.

Looking at the problem you had and all the great advice from the forum is very heartwarming. It is exactly what the forum is all about.

Nice that this problem showed up at home rather than half way to/from Disneyworld. Glad that it all worked out well in the end.

You know, there will be a lot of us in and around the area to help out if something goes wonky.
