Thanks again to all who have helped with my previous problems.  I 
have solved most of the problems and I will soon replace the gas 
tank.  Sorry to continue to leech off your knowledge, but I have reached 
another brick wall in my own know-how and really can't afford to pay for 
a mechanic's.  Here's the problem....

79B - started-up just fine this morning, but 15 seconds later sputtered 
and died even though I had my foot on the gas.  There's gas in the 
tank, and I'm getting delivery at the carb.

My meager understanding and Haynes suggest a carb or choke problem or 
"air leaks in induction system".  Any suggestions as to how I can narrow 
it down or solve the problem before I have it towed to the local British 
auto repair shop? 

Any advice will be appreciated (even if it's "quit bugging us and call 
the tow truck").
