I took it out and discovered how it worked today, but the question I
have is how is it intended to work? When I open the valve and lock it
in, the engine won't start--seems to flood. When I push it all the way
in the engine starts and runs well, but there is emission of some sort
-like vaporized fuel-from the valve handle opening. If I pull the valve
back out, the engine stalls immediately. Can you tell me how the AED is
supposed to operate, and if this sounds like the AED is faulty?
