CV carb starting procedure

#1

Post by 49txpan » Tue Feb 21, 2006 2:38 pm

I am experimenting with a CV carb on my 49 Pan. I replaced an old Keihin and decided to try it since I had one already. Can you guys running CV's comment on your start up procedure? Cold start, full choke, one twist, etc, etc? Warm start no choke etc. Thanks

Here are my procedures...

Winter (Arizona winters are mild w/ lows around 30F):

Cold Start - Ignition off, full enricher, 2 full throttle twists, 2 kicks slowly. Ignition on, kick.

Warm Start - Half twist on the throttle, 3/4 enricher if the motor has been sitting for an hour or so, otherwise no enricher. No primer kicks, key on, kick.



Summer (Arizona summer are brutal with 110F+ a regular occurance):

Cold Start - Half twist of the throttle, no enricher. Key off, 2 primer kicks. Key on, kick.

Warm Start - No throttle, no enricher, no primer kicks with key off. Key on, kick.

Thanks Craig. I live in Houston with similar temps but quite a bit more humity. Stupid me, I need to leave the ignition off. I will try this procedure, sounds good.
