Right, I can't start my car.
The reason is because of fuel pissing out of the carb, it's a needle valve issue, I've tried three today, none are helping
So....I just refurbished my original German fuel pump, is it possible it's causing too much pressure?
I assembled it on the engine with the push rod at it's highest point, about 12mm it was, I know it's supposed to be 14mm.
The reason I refurbed it was because of fuel in the oil, natually I assumed that the shit arabic fuel pump I have was leaking, however, if it's the valve instead then that might have cause it.
Either way I'm pissed off with shit quality parts because this happens at least once every 3 months.
Here are some pictures taken in anger:-
Immediately after finishing cranking I took the carb cover off:
fuel leaking out of here:-
this is the piece of shit I was using:-
Changed it to another valve of similar quality, except this time it was GUSHING OUT
I'm wound up, I've been out there all day
Symptoms are - really really hard to start, if it does go it's revving really low, no guts at all, stinks of fuel out of the tailpipes
Flat battery now so have fucked it off until tomorrow.
Rant over, any opinions?!
