Please help, Im a college kid and my 66 inline 6 is my daily driver. I just bought this brand new vaporizer 1100 carb about a year and a half ago from pony carbs. The other day randomly my car wasn't staying on and i noticed the carb was leaking gas from the top port. when i took apart the carb this morning and unbolted the top i saw this bolt thing loose just sitting there exactly like this in the picture. Obviously this broke off somewhere but i cant figure out where. I tried looking at some diagrams but i cant figure it out. Any one know?

The picture is attatched. Thank you everyone, God Bless.

This is a wild guess, but look in the top section for the power valve. It had to either drop down from top, or was left in there at Pony. Either way, I would contact them. Possible it was interfering with float, not allowing it to shut off fuel. I don't see it in my diagram, but also have no idea what changes Pony makes to their carbs.

That looks more like some sort of gauge or tool. That is way too big to be any internal part of the autolite 1100.

Yep. It fell out of the top of the housing. Did a ball and spring come out with it? Contact Pony Carbs and they should be able to further help. Good luck!
