yeah once i get the right parts ill start checking the idle and everything.James wrote:Since the car starts - you have spark and fuel at some level. Where I would start:
Check the level of oil in the damper. Black knob on top of the carb - unscrew that and there is a dipstick with two marks. There should be oil to between those marks. If there is no oil - I use marvel mystery oil (people say its too light but I like it) - easy to get and will get you started.
Stick your finger in the carb and lift the piston - it should move freely and have some resistance.
There is a screw that adjusts the idle - it pushes on a plate that adjusts both carbs make sure the screw is at least hitting that and
I would give it another turn or two (it may not idle if thats too far backed off).
once you get it to idle - have you checked the timing?
As far as the chokes a dual cable would be helpful - if you can find one.
I'm not near my car - so pics will have to come late tomorrow.
should the tank where the floats are at kinda smell like old gas?
probably gonna need some oil for them.
if i cant find one im just gonna save for something like these
