Years ago my brother-in-law sold Gross Jets for a living, so naturally I had 
adaptations made for the Rovers and early thirties Franklin.  But the in 
Land Rover, which was in regular use so there presumably was no gumming in 
the float bowl, it would stick shut while idling at busy intersections and 
the engine would die.  I carried a light tapping hammer on the front seat 
next to me in anticipation so I could jump out, tap the float bowl, and get 
going again.  I took them out one by one after that......      I don't think 
I ever had one stick open except in a car that had been in storage for a 
while and was perhaps gummed from stale gas.
