Hi all, I'm new to this forum but need help desperately. I installed a rebuilt Motorcraft 5200 carb on  my '75 Pinto wagon with 4 cylinder. It will start and run a little then dies. I don't know how to adjust it and the rebuilt carb came with no instructions only a technical hot line number.

Can someone advise me on this? The original carb had a wire to the choke but the rebuilt had no wire. I saved the wire-and-disk part from the original but did not install it on the rebuilt. If I can get it running I can get it to a shop for professional help.

Thanks much

Did it run with the original carb? Did it stall with that carb?

Buying rebuilt part assumes the skills available to use it properly. Not being able to tune or adjust carb implies not being able to determine if carb was the original issue as well.......... .......

Gotta have more information than was supplied to work with.
