Gentlemen, I have a 1935 Buick Special 46C. It has a straight 8 engine with 222 cubic inches. The car starts well and runs well. A good driver. The problem I am having is after driving at speed when coming to a stop the car will sometimes stall.
I recently adjusted the clutch to make sure the transmission was disengaging from the engine. That seemed to help some.
When I purchased the car the idle was set high so I reduced the idle. Is it possible that the idle was intentionally set highto prevent the problem I am having? Or is it something else. A friend suggested the carburetor was set too rich and should be adjusted. He said when following the car that he could smell gas after I had to restart the stalled car. This could have been a flooding issue.
Any help will be appreciated.
