Glen, Slats, my problem may be the fuel itself turning
into sticky varnish. So even the factory needle and
seat would have gotten stuck. A little rap on the
float chamber freed it right up. I'm betting a good
bit of driving and some fresh fuel would fix it right
up. Had to push the car off the ramps today, no
clutch/master cylinder. Now that the kids went back to
college, I sure could have used their muscle! It was
just the wife and I pushing to get it back into the
garage. We are due for some rain this week and the
rubbers still need to be replaced or I'd have a pond
on the new carpets.
