• All, You may notice that the site looks a bit different. This evening I performed a major software update which improves some things and has the opposite effect on some others. The old software version will no longer be supported so it was not really a choice. One down-side is that the new release breaks most of the Add-Ins and style sheets which will have to be reinstalled (and repurchased in many cases). The biggest loss is that the feature to receive all new posts by email is no longer supported. I will likely implement another option which will let users subscribe to either a daily or weekly digest. You will notice enhanced support for attachments, ability to bookmark posts and a more mobile friendly experience. If you do discover something that is not working as it should, please let me know. I did have to switch to some new anti-spam components and am keeping fingers crossed that they are as effective as the old ones without blocking legitimate users. Keeping the balance is kind of like trying to design a car that both drives and swims! Thanks, Mike

Sounds like fuel vaporisation, first check the 5mm thick heat insulating
gaskets are between carb and manifold and fuel pump and block, then insolate
the fuel pipe, could also put a heat shield between manifold and carbs as
fitted to later cars, even try a different type of Gasoline.

When you shut the car off, pull the air filter and look inside the carb,
see if fuel is dripping into manifold. When the carbs get worn, the fuel
drips into the manifold when you shut off the motor (the float is not
closing the valve). This is especially a problem when the motor is very
hot. The motor is flooding. To get restarted, hold the gas pedal to the
floor and crank, the motor will fire. My car does this nearly every
time.

Check make sure antifreeze not leaking through head gasket. Pull plugs
and inspect, or check your levels.

Sounds like vapor lock, wrap line in fiberglass to carb, may help.
