So does your car have the stock Mopar ignition for a Non Lean Burn car or at least the conversion used Mopar parts? Or was it aftermarket ignition parts installed to get rid of the Lean Burn?

I feel your pain. Maybe reach out to Ryan Sneke Eyz on 300M forum. He has a couple old Mopars, maybe he has run into similiar problems or maybe knows someone who does. LOL he and Scott have a brand new crate motor Scott won as a door prize at Carlisle a few years back........sent you a PM.

And here's some stuff that popped up with "Chrysler Lean Burn Conversion Kit".

Some interesting reading on the Lean Burn System:

Tough call whether you have a Fuel/carb problem or an ignition problem.

Wonder why the PO didn't go with a standard 2 barrel carb with an electronic choke? Or is it the original Lean Burn carb with the choke cable added? Never know with these "Conversions"!

It appears a lot of the "Lean Burn Conversions" relate only to the ignition and the original carb is left in place.

Ed-Doba...do you see any wiring going to the carburetor? Or "block off" plates?

Reman 2 bbl carb on the Rock is $144.79 + $50 core. Doesn't say if it's Lean Burn equipped.

Maybe check Jegs for a new carb?

I do believe it is the original carb (it's the Carter 2 bbl) There's a couple wires here and there. (I'm trying to upload some pics to my Imgr)

The ECU is an "Echlin" brand "TP 51"

I think I just squashed the "something is getting hot" theory. The car has been sitting for a good three hours, nice and cool, so I decided to go out and see what she'd do... started right up, only this time, it idled for about 30-45 seconds, then shut down. So now I'm leaning back toward fuel delivery.

Maybe look into getting the same Carter Series 2 bbl but without the "Lean Burn" shit? Should be a carb out there with a standard electric choke that would fit.

I have. My guy over at the F/M/J body forums suggested that after replacing the "jumper line" going from the tank to the main line. He's suggesting that maybe that jumper line is dry rotted/cracked and sucking air. I'm gonna have to empty this tank and pull it to find out.

Or a rebuild kit? I think I could do it.

Sorry...couldn't help it!

I'd dump the Lean Burn carb entirely and not even bother trying a rebuild but that's just me.

I'm assuming the only difference between what you have and a standard Carter 2 bbl would be the castings or additions for the additional sensors. The internal fuel circuitry would be the same. Wondering what they did to eliminate the Electric/Mechanical choke on the Lean Burn? Whether the carb body is a different casting to eliminate the choke or a simple block off.

Better start sourcing the other FSM manual parts. Looking at your picture of the original manual it appears to be just the "Body" section. You need at least the "Powertrain" part or whatever they called it then.

Sorry...I don't have any complete FSM manual sets other than for an LH car!
