Hi all, new here and first post!
We have just acquired a '79 B from a yard sale and need to get it emissions tested. The previous owner had a replacement carb. fitted recently. A Weber 32/36 DGV 5A.
Problem is that it doesn't start easily and I think the reason is the choke linkage isn't closing the 'choke plates' properly. A squirt of damp start usually does the trick so it's not the electrics. (He also had a pointless distributer fitted).
There is a choke rod hanging down the side of the carb body. I think it's supposed to link to the choke lever but I don't know how and the Weber docs on-line don't show anything useful. I would post a photo but its very difficult to get to. The parts I'm refering to are numbers 5 (choke plate), 7 (connecting rod) and 42 (lever) on the Weber parts diagram.
Can anyone out there tell me how the two are supposed to be linked together?
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
