The reason I suspected the float was too high, was that the car was having difficulty starting (flooding). It would only start if I didn't pull out the choke or push on the accelerator at all. Per i

Should I see fuel in the filter if I removed the carbs and therefore the line to the filter drained due to gravity? I don't believe I've heard the pump since I reinstalled the carbs and tried to sta

A few weeks ago I replaced a bad battery in the 79B. The car then started. A few days later,on the way home the alternator light stayed on all the time; not just glowing, but bright. The next time I

Replacing the rectifier must be what I need to do. I looked in the Moss catalog for a diode and didn't see one. I'm assuming from your post that the diode is part of the rectum flier, excuse me, rec

I took off the overflow tube that goes to the canister and blew through it and gasoline flowed from the run on valve vent hose. This must mean the canister is full of gas. (For the sake of the list,

I'll try this today. Both carbs do have new valves in them, so I'll try your fuel pressurizing method first and if that doesn't work, put the old valves back in. Are gross jets the way to go with HI

Most likely the points and plugs are dirty now after all the "rough starting and idling" caused by the fuel overflow. Before I drive it I will clean the plugs and points and change the oil, which is
