Steer me to plain tuneup direction

Post #1 by f100owner » Mon Apr 02, 2018 9:07 pm

I have been searching and have ran across this info for newer trucks, but can someone point me to step by step instructions for timing my 1971 f100 with 240 six, auto choke, auto trans with Carter yf carb? Also, is there any differences between the Carter D1TF- ya/xa/za/aaa carbs. I am planning to replace my carb. Well buy one and keep my original as a platform to learn how to rebuild.
The truck does have a pertronix electronic ignition module. The engine was rebuilt about two years ago, but between battling a manual to auto trans upgrade and other challenges, the engine hasn't ran much. The occasional start to hear it run and watch it smoke and sputter.
