Just checking Rob
parking on the pavement is one of my pet peeves.

And mine but in many places where parking is allowed down both sides of the road, there is no realistic alternative. My Dad had problems with his mobility scooter - but they are another problem on the pavements!

Hi Rob, have you any pics of your rose joint top mounts? I'm looking at something at the minute so it'll be good to know what you mean? Or how its together.

Yes those carbs do seem to be set-up well - your second man did a good job. It ticks over very well and stops immediately when you switch it off too - a novelty for me. I have to stall my blue car and did the same with my old car.[/QUOTE]


Explain. Just hard to start samuri tick over nice and turn the key off and it will stop

It should always start on the button after a couple of pumps of the throttle pedal - if it doesn't, your accelerator pump jets are possibly blocked. (or possibly they're too big and you've flooded it!). If you take them off the manifold one by one without spilling the fuel from the float chamber and pump the throttle by hand, it should squirt petrol a couple of feet.

If it runs on when you turn it off, then you've got something other than the spark plug in the cylinder that's starting combustion - possibly red hot carbon deposits from running too rich.
Fix it with a rolling road session or an AFR gauge and fun hours swapping jets

Hi Jon, yes with these Webers the car starts really well.

Running-on, I don't think it's as simple as that. I think it's to do with the SU type carbs and high compression engines. Neither of my cars that did it were rich.

when you turn the key off, there's no spark at the spark plug. if it runs-on, there's something else in the chamber that is starting combustion, and that something will be red-hot - it is as simple as that. High compression engines generate more heat and so are more likely to heat something to that level - could be carbon, could be nicks on the piston, could be burrs on the piston or head from casting or porting, could be valves worn to a knife edge, it could even be the tip of the spark plug.
I think we've had this topic before - running on is not an essential characteristic of a sporty engine. It's a characteristic of an engine with a remaining opportunity for optimisation

fair enough. The pump jets on side draught carbs mean you really don't need a choke - you get the cold start enrichment you need from the pumps.
