Ok now that winter is over in the Northeast, I am getting the car on the road. I bought this in Oct 2010 and have been getting to know it through the winter.
I have noticed an issue with carb. I did take it apart clean and new gaskets. It does have a funky manual choke that doesn't work and looks like a replacement/homemade job. The issue I have is that the piston gets stuck all the time. Prior to starting I remove the air filter and can not budge the piston with my finger. I have to take a screwdriver and pop it up to get it to move freely.
Is it possible to be out of round somehow? What to do?
BTW, the Home CFO has given approval to purchase a new carb if needed. I was contemplating a Weber DGV.
