My MG starts on ether
After rebuilding the carb on a '77 B after sitting for 3 years, the car runs, but will only start with ether. All kinds of fuel pressure, but I'm stumped.
Sounds like you didn't set the needle valve properly. Double check the setting.
Thanks for your response, I'll check that out.
I'm not sure, does yours have SU's or Stromburgs?
Thanks. Be sure that you use a very light machine oil in the reservoir. I used to use gun oil but 3-in-1 might work well also. The shoulder on the needle should just touch the top of the jet when it is set right.
Will do, thanks for taking the time to answer me.
