Thomas77GR Posted June 9, 2020 Share Posted June 9, 2020 Hi all this is about my kadett again, 1.1 oHV engine. the car starts on choke and runs on choke but as soon as I take the choke off, the engine dies immediately. Is this a carburettor issue? the plugs were new but after a several tries with starting and restarting the car I noticed they got quite sooty. The carb is a solex. I've redone the leads using firing order 1-4-3-2, I counted the cylinders from the front end of the car (radiator side), the car is also fitted with an electronic ignition kit (the one that replaces the condenser/points only and sits inside the distributor), mechanical fuel pump is new. distributor cap is also new. The car has been sitting outside for a quite a while. I do have a newish weber carburettor correct for the inlet manifold however the throttle linkage is different so would need to modify, anyone has done such a mod and has just some tips to share? thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
