do we really have no other advice or options for Martin other than buy a new carb?
I must be honest, I don`t remember the VV having problems hot starting when new, but then petrol`s changed a lot since `84
just a thought but, as standard, the VV had a load
of valves and pipework, a fuel trap in the vac line etc. These are most, I think there are still a couple missing: a blue/black version of the red one and possibly another brown (think I cut it up to use the bulb....)
These were all concerned with emissions, the brown one for example was a thermally activated vccuum switch in the bottom of the manifold: this directed vacuum one way when cold and another when hot (advance sustain?) If any of these are missing, not working, or leaking, that could cause difficult starting?
