Solex PAAI 30 carburator cold start issues
I have a 1952 220 sedan that is giving me issues with cold starting as the cold start circuit plunger assist just doesn't. The plunger, if engaged, causes the engine to die once running and air intake can be heard after engagement just before it shuts down.
Once the car is started and warms up it runs like a swiss watch. I have installed a rebuild kit and resolved a minor vacuum leak by cutting a gasket for between the throttle plate body and carburator casting using very thin gasket stock, but cannot figure out why the cold start circuit will not funtion.
